What our students said about Montevideo

Rating: 5/5

5

A really lovely city. Very easy to live in, safe, small enough that you can walk almost everywhere- but if you don't want to walk, the public bus system is great. Beautiful architecture, friendly people, and although plenty of people speak English, nobody leads with it, making it the perfect environment for an immersive Spanish speaking and learning experience.

Friendly professional staff.
I know it's an old building, so this is probably not possible, but there is a bathroom shortage...Everyone takes a break at the same time. Maybe the break time could be divided up into two?

My goal of improving existing errors was supported (achieving the highest possible level was not the main focus)
It is a pity that there are no first-class media material. The speakers don't work most of the time (and acoustic exercise is also important ... not every host family has a working TV)

Our teacher Pablo: Multimedia teaching with high requirement and the right mix of humor
The class rooms - called "aulas" - are a bit small and the chairs are sat through.

the teachers were very competent and smart
It would be essential if the school checked the host family personally. I was in a vegetarian family! And in Uruguay! My host father had terminal cancer and is dying. You can imagine, what kind of dramatic scenes happened in the family and I was in the middle of it.
