What our students said about Montevideo

Rating: 5/5

5.0

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?

Wonderful staff and teachers. A curriculum that is sufficiently challenging without being overwhelming. They are always willing to adjust to what is most important for each student.
Highly recommend!

Nothing. I arrived and Margo, the school’s manager, lied to me and tried to give me half of the lessons I paid for, just because I was the only beginner. I don't care if that would be one-on-one, I paid for 20 hours and I expect to get 20 hours! Horrible!

The teachers. Maribel and Veronika were great!
Everything is old, broken and dirty. There is mold in the kitchen. Pans are broken. There are so many animals in the kitchen that cooking is practically impossible. The accommodation is unfortunately not recommended.

The teachers, Maribel was great.
The accommodation at the school was disastrous. It was dirty, old and a lot of things were broken. There were cockroaches in the kitchen & most of the kitchen utensils such as pans were broken. It was a great effort to cook & stay here. An imposition for the money.

The teaching, the patience and the friendliness of the people at school.
The school was great, unfortunately the "hostess", even if she was nice, looked more at the money and served reheated frozen food . Therefore, it was a mistake for me to book "Homestay".

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)

The class rooms - called "aulas" - are a bit small and the chairs are sat through.
