The teacher was really focused on my personal needs and accommodating to the level of knowledge I had. Ana Garcia was patient and encouraging and that helped me progress beyond my expectations in such a short period.

Everything was in Spanish and they wanted us to speak as much as possible, which helps a lot. One teacher used the first bit of the class to just chat in Spanish about a topic of our choice and that was really helpful just to get a feeling for the language (I was a total beginner when I first arrived).
The teachers and managers were really nice and helpful. In my time there, there was a lot of American students and not to many from other places. But everybody was nice and friendly and I made some really nice friends!

The school is based in an old monastery. Super cute but because of that classrooms are on the small side. Teachers were really friendly, fun, knowledgeable and helpful.
I really think that everyone at Don Quijote had the best intentions to make the classes fun, enjoyable as well as informative. But because DQ has such a big reputation, I would have liked classes to be more balanced because of the reasons I’ve mentioned above. The difference between conversation classes and semi-private classes should be more obvious. Semi-private classes should be utilised as classes where students can ask about certain subjects they wanna know more about.

Fantastic teachers, interesting classes. The lessons lasted exactly 55 minutes without any delay. Time used to maximum
I have no comparison, because this is my first course, but it was perfect. I've heard a lot of good things about this school and I fully agree with them. Not to mention Salamanca itself - adorable! The only thing that did not suit me was the accommodation - a dark interior apartment with smokers. If I ever come back here, I'll look for something myself.

Teachers were super... Marie and Raphael. As a language teacher myself, I really appreciated their work. The class size was excellent and the atmosphere was wonderful.
I will return.. Salamanca or one of Enforex's other locations. One little criticism. The first day we were given our text book. We were told that inside the first page we would find a code which would enable us to access useful information which we could work on when we were back home. I have not been able to make this work. When I was asked for my e mail address I used my personal address but was told that this e-mail was already taken. But it is taken by me. If you could shed any light on this kindly notify me.

Teachers are professional and friendly.
Generally the school was fine, but sometimes it canceled the regular lessons with different excuses without reschedule or refund, e.g anniversary of the school, exams for other students, etc. It is not quite fair to the money we have paid.

It's location is amazing. It's less than one minute to Plaza Mayor. Everyone is nice and helpful. The teachers are the best especially Carmen. Everything was fantastic and the best thing is the accent and the pronunciation. Not only in the school but, in the city.
