What our students said about Valencia

Rating: 5/5

5.0

I felt safe in Valencia at any time of the day or night, whether in the park, on the beach or in the city. In the 4 weeks I only met 1 unfriendly person - they must have moved! Otherwise I only got to know friendly and helpful people. For those who like it warm, like me, August is perfect. You can safely leave long trousers and sweaters at home. Even at night it is still pleasantly warm. Cycle paths run through the whole city, so that you can explore and traverse them by city bike (Valenbisi). The Turia, the green river bed, also invites you to cycle and / or linger. The city of arts and sciences is always worth a detour, especially for architecture lovers. With the changing light conditions there are always new perspectives to discover. I was also enthusiastic about the countless graffiti works of art that run through the whole city, but especially in the El Carmen district. Here you can drift for hours, from one street to the next and always discover something new. And the nightlife ... for me always something very special to dance on the beach or under the starry sky, therefore an absolute recommendation Umbracle (Fridays) and Marina Club (Wednesdays).

I cannot comment on nightlife as we went for walks in the afternoons until early evenings and never at night. We had a nice apartment with a balcony, where we prepared our meals,. We spent our evenings doing our homework :), reading, talking, drinking wine, watching Spanish and Latin-American movies on Netflix etc.

I've never felt safe in a city myself (even at night). Lots to do and most sights / restaurants are not expensive, unless of course you go to the tourist squares such as Plaza Reina or Plaza Virgin.

The city is not as safe as it seems. An attempt was made to steal money from a "classmate" from her backpack. She also witnessed a personal attack on a woman on the bus.

I like Barcelona better. We were unlucky with the weather; three days with rain in spring. There was a lot of construction and the waterfront area is not very pretty.

A charming city with a beautiful old town, a wonderful beach, very tasty paella and the Turia Park on the drained river bed, which meanders through the city.

FAQ about schools in Valencia

  • In Valencia, Enforex and Don Quijote offer 50+ courses. During these 50+ courses, you will take Spanish lessons with all ages (18+) and special 50+ activities are organized after the lessons. You can also choose to do a General Spanish course for 2 weeks and then choose the school with a higher average age of student. In this regard, El Carmen is a good option. The average age for them is around 30 years old. These three schools all have the option of host family accommodation, with half board.
    Robin Rebecca Pietersma, Dutch Consultant from LanguageCourse.Net
  • Usually 3-5 students stay in a shared flat. The final place of residence is shared by the school with the students individually, after the course has been paid. Usually, schools try to classify students with other residents of about the same age. However, this is not guaranteed as it depends on several factors (period, number of registrations, possible last minute cancellations, etc.).
    Anzo, Area Manager from LCN
  • The general courses are almost always booked per week. This means that your son can certainly stop for 2 weeks during his stay in Valencia.
    Robin Rebecca Pietersma, Dutch Consultant from LanguageCourse.net
  • In Valencia we work with very good schools. Most courses are standard courses with 20 lessons per week and since you already have Spanish knowledge you can start any Monday. The average age is often higher if you book outside the school holidays. You can also opt for a business group course, as our experience is that few young students participate in these courses. It is important to keep in mind that most schools prefer to group students by language level first and then by age for the best course experience. When would you like to start and at which school? If you let us know (via the contact box) then we can check availability and investigate whether peers have already registered.
