I lived in an apartment which sadly had few heaters and wind was blowing through the windows and so on... I was freezing and had to keep my gloves on indoors! (This has nothing to do with the school though, they have efficient heaters.)

La Cala del Moral is very beautiful. We didn't want to have any night life, so I don't have opinion about it. The house where we lived was peaceful, and that's the most important thing for me. For me the nights are for sleeping.

School is physically situated in a very beautiful old building in Malaga Center. Teachers were nice. The methods and facilities could be more modern. Me, as the beginner in Spanish, felt that the rhythm of the education lessons followed mostly those who had already learned more. There should be a starters’ group or the student should know some basics of the language beforehand. Anyway, all over the experience of short course was ok.
When teachers used any kind of printed word lists and pictures, it helped to follow the theme (although my vocabulary was small). I highly recommend to use pre-prepared materials with word lists etc. to support the learning process of the students.

Located in the centre of the city. Bright and clean facilities. Friendly teachers.
I didn’t like being ignored along with other new students for the first half an hour when all the teachers arrived back from winter holiday. Sitting awkwardly without a greeting does not make me feel welcome.

The location was good and the activities, with many teachers present, were also really good. It's good that the teachers are included.
In my opinion it was too much focus on grammar, it's hard to learn the language when it's almost only grammar and not that much speaking. Everything went too fast, I felt like I hardly learned any Spanish. A lot of focus on exercises and grammar. Was it all necessary? Also, after two weeks learning from one teacher the female teacher replacing him told us that what we've learned was wrong. So two teachers from the same school saying different things? Sometimes it felt like the teacher was just someone that the school picked up from the street because they needed some more teachers. Could've been better. Also the whole living situation could've been better from the school. It was so messy and so confusing this whole time. First three of us had to move so the school can keep people that are not even going to school and then no one in the school payed attention to my course extension and sent two new people in to our apartment saying that we had to move out. We've had a lot of problems that could've been better handled. I'm just thinking that if this was low season and still there was so many problems and mistakes, what is high season going to be like?

I doubted if I was in the right group. I missed a lot because I couldn't follow the teacher and some students . That's why I missed sometimes the possibility to ask something in english. In spite of that I liked the hours being occupied with the Spanish language.
