We had to submit Spanish tests via email, so that we could be placed in appropriate groups. We opted to do group lessons in the morning, followed... More

The class was taught all in Spanish. As a wee beginner it immersed me in the language and was rich and thorough. Lots of games and interactions.

Spanish classes really immersed you in the language! My teacher very rarely switched to English, which really helped solidify my knowledge. Every day the school has some sort of fun activity after the classes (dance lessons, happy hour, bike rides etc.). By the end of the week, you really feel like a community. The school is located right in the... More

As soon as you stepped in the door the staff were incredibly welcoming, friendly and went above and beyond to help us with anything we needed all week. A test was set to initially gauge our level of fluency in order to determine which class was appropriate for us. We chose the one week intensive option and it was incredibly... More

At the beginning of my trip of 4 weeks I joined the intense group course, 5 days a week, 4 hours a day. We had a really small group and a teacher that always spoke Spanish during classes and tried to teach us the language in a fun way. After this week I felt my Spanish was really improved and... More

We spent two weeks studying here for four hours a day! What a great way to learn more Spanish! A first rate school that tries its best to accommodate to the needs of the learners. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to start as a beginner or improve his/her skills. Thanks to all!
