What our students said about Malaga

Rating: 3/5

3.0

A small sweet town, which turns into a party mile in the evening. As a result, there is an increased smell of urine (thanks to some incontinent men) and rubbish in the small streets. Thanks to many cleaners, there is nothing to be seen of this the next morning. The beach and the harbour are very beautiful and were my second home in good weather (in February/March unfortunately a lot of rain and cooler than expected). The people working in Malaga are mostly very nice and most of them can talk to you well in English.

Very beautiful city that is easy to get around in. There are very beautiful landmarks to visit and a number of interesting museums. Public transport is above expectations, although it can be a little difficult to understand the system if you do not speak Spanish. Overall, the city is pretty clean, but if you go into secluded alley watch your step: people don't pick up after their dogs. Would definitely recommend Malaga.

If you like a smaller city, Malaga is the place for you! The historic old town, where you live, is easy to explore on foot. Every time you discover new restaurants, tapas bars or ice cream parlors that you still want to try out. The Soho area is also fun to explore and the beaches anyway. It is highly recommended that you borrow a bike and explore both the beaches in the direction of Pedregalejo and in the west.

Malaga is a fabulous city to stay in for a short or longer time. It feels very safe. It's easy to walk about, and the public transport is brilliant and easy to navigate. There's lots to do, including historical sites, museums, theatres, the beach and walks along the seafront. I heard that the nightlife is excellent too!

Malaga is stunningly beautiful. I took the open top red bus tour a couple of times and found the history fascinating. I also walked for hours along the pretty paved areas around the parks and gardens and explored the old City. I will always remember Malaga.

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.

Rich nightlife, interesting museums, sights, incredible fortresses, beautiful parks, very tasty food - specially fresh fish, clear sea, the beaches have a dull colour of grey sand but there are showers and clean toilets around.

The city center is at times so overcrowded with daytime tourists that you can hardly get through (my room was in the old town). 2 weeks were ideal for me. That would be too much for me in Summer, with even more hype.

I liked the concept of the school very much, i.e. that grammar is taught in the first two lessons and that this is practised in conversation lessons after the big break. I also liked the fact that the teachers in the conversation classes change all the time.

I really like the culture of the school. It's small and friendly, and the teachers do their best to make you feel comfortable and part of the Debla family. The teachers are professional and courteous of everyone - we had a wide mix of cultures, age ranges in our class - and I always felt part of the class and made welcome. The grammar lessons were particularly strong and well structured - although quite challenging - which I liked! The teachers were really kind and funny - and made even difficult lessons great fun!
Overall a great school with passionate teachers and a good range of activities. I had an excellent 9 weeks at the school.
