All the teachers are kind.
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.

Friendly atmosphere and small classes
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.

The atmosphere in which I have evolved during this stay, the availability of the staff. The small class and especially the quality of the teacher and the structure of his teaching is what I've liked most of all my trip.
It's really like a turning point for any unconditional traveler.

The teachers were really friendly and very knowledgeable. I felt like I learnt a lot in a very short time. The classes were relaxed and fun and the small number of students meant that you felt comfortable participating in class and that you got enough individual attention.
Really nice place to learn Spanish, the environment and staff were wonderful. I really enjoyed my time here, however I did think the price of private lessons was a bit too expensive (and unfortunately this prohibited me from taking these, although I would have liked to).

The class size was perfect. The teachers were wonderful and made us feel comfortable speaking and making errors in Spanish. Having a little party for a departing student on the last day was a nice touch.
I recommend the school. I did not participate in the free extra activities, but I am sure that would've helped my language even more.

We were more than 8 the first week, contrary to the commitments. In addition it was mentioned on the internet that there was a service in French, but there was not.

I would have liked more homework. I understand that you are leaving time for people to explore the city but I think people can devote more than 10 minutes a night to improving their Spanish if they have chosen to take Spanish classes in the first place.

More exercises in the book that students can practice for themselves would be helpful.
