Rating: 5/5

There’s lots to do and go to. The public transport system is outstanding, and cheap. It’s easy to find your way around as the streets are well signposted, and the place is built on a rectangular grid. Google maps helps too!

Very lively, the bank holiday is a special highlight, impressive how the Chileans celebrate, good public transport, many excursion possibilities, caution is advised, do not wear important personal things visibly.

A large, modern city with many beautiful buildings. I liked it but it was not for me « love at first sight » as Buenos Aires was.

It was a wonderful school :-) The atmosphere was quite extraordinary. The administrator and all the teachers were very friendly, efficient and professional - and they all appeared to be friends between them. It seemed like we were all one happy family. Also, the afternoon and night activities (city walk, salsa lesson, making pisco sour, conversation class) were great. Also, the teaching material was good. I will probably go there again.
A very good school to be highly recommended!

Small classes, committed teachers, own material (booklet with current grammar and vocabulary), regular homework, systematic structure, extra conversation on Monday, a different activity every afternoon, interesting excursions at the weekend, very individual farewells in class, bank holidays were made up for - perfect for me, I would choose the school again.

Because the progress of lessons differs depending on classmates, you can have them change if you are dissatisfied with the class.

They do a great job of gauging your skills and matching you with a curriculum that works for you. It's obvious they take a personal interest your effort to learn Spanish to make sure you get the most out of your classes. I did a couple weeks of group courses and took a few private lessons as well. I highly recommend the private lessons--they are worth the additional expense because you get more practice and can focus on the things you need to improve most.

Really enjoyed my time here and learnt a lot in one week. I'm considering going back another time. I had my own accommodation so that shouldn’t be included in my review.
