What our students said about Las Palmas

Rating: 5/5

5.0

Las Palmas is not a beautiful city at first glance, but it does tend to grow on you. We were there in August, which is very humid, and it might be more pleasant in winter. The old city of Triana and Vegueta has considerable charm. We found the locals very friendly and tolerant of out attempts to learn the language.

Las Palmas is a nice city with lots of activities and a beautiful beach. As a woman I always felt safe, even at night. There are clubs, bars, restaurants, a beautiful old town and the rest of the island is easy to reach from Las Palmas.

I loved the approach to teaching with regular formal style classes and one day a week of outside of the classroom study. Excursions and cultural outings are a great idea and bonus also. Loved the staff and cheerful approach to conducting things.
The staff and teachers also embody the best qualities of this fabulous archipelago. Serious Spanish within a professional framework but gaining much more thanks to the location and spirit of place.

We had a small class ranging (over a month) from 4 to 6 students. All were friendly and supportive and created a fine ambiance for learning. Our teacher, Pilar, was also very friendly, supportive and highly competent.
We enjoyed our time with the administrators of the course, Monika and Angel, when we participated in the cultural program. Both were friendly, informative and great company.

Open class day and additional excursions. My class had students in the same age group, 40+, which helped to keep the study process on equal levels for all!
Good school,location and helpful staff. Very easy and fast communication with administrator Monica, thanks to her! If you would like to do a morning español class and an afternoon surf class then book to live next to Playa Las Canteras!

It was difficult to get to know people in my class as so few stayed for more than 1 or 2 weeks. In previous Language School I stayed with families so there was a chance to talk Spanish outside of the classroom. I found your school a lonely place.

Very well structured lessons and good teaching staff.
The course was overcrowded for a week with 14 participants, which was quite unpleasant not only because of the large number of participants, but also because of the small classroom.

Super professional, teacher Rita created both a safe learning environment and that she explained everything extremely well. Fast paced course, but because of her clear explanation it all really worked out well. The teaching method / books are also very well structured.
The tour to see more of the island was canceled at the first stop due to a visit to the hospital by one of the participants. The organizers could not do anything about this situation, although it would have been good to give us all a full refund as the they cancelled the tour at a very early stage (only recovered half after inquiring).

The course was well structured and the books were very good. The teacher (Carlos) was both competent and nice.
There was no written test before the course, just an oral interview. During the course the focus was on speaking, we did not get any training in writing such as letters, summary or argumentation. No listening comprehension or films (I was in B2).

The professionalism of the teacher and the quality of the people who formed the group of students with whom I had the pleasure of studying. I also liked that the school is small and the fact that the school offers excursions.
I put 3 stars for the equipment because the rooms are sometimes a little small and there is no library but these elements are not very important in my evaluation. It's the same thing for leisure activities.
