Great Spanish course

I took two weeks of intenstive studies of Spanish and one week of conversational classes. Most importantly, I had a lot of fun. It was great meeting new people, great learning from the really good teachers, great seeing fast progress in my Spanish. The school also arranged a lot of activities and there was something going on almost every day. In particular that was a good way of meeting other students outside of your class, and socializing in ways unrelated to the class room. Naturally, a lot of the time we'd still use Spanish amongst us students outside of the classroom too, proving to be a valuable way to practicing. I found that that was a good segue into also using Spanish with native speakers.

All in all, it was a great experience and I look forward to continuing the classes this autumn.

What would you improve about this program?
Unless you're doing the course full-time for a longer period, it can become a bit confusing about when the exams will be and when you finish a level and begin the next.

great course to get started

I´ve stayed for two weeks in the beginner's intensive Spanish course (4 hours per day) and it was amazing in which interesting and with a lot of fun the teachers taught grammar and pronunciation.
I checked a lot of language schools in Barcelona to find the perfect school and it was impressive how deeply the school tested my language level to find the right course that fits my needings. the contact was super friendly and prompt.
The course helped me a lot and I will for sure book again a course at Linguaschool in Barcelona!

Highly recommendation!

une expérience inoubliable

Translated by Go Overseas:

For two weeks, I took Spanish lessons in this very nice little school in Barcelona. ....... two dynamic and super enthusiastic teachers accompanied me! It was an excellent learning that allowed me to make exceptional progress, quickly! Being a teacher myself in Brussels, I really appreciated the professionalism of the teachers of this school that I highly recommend to all those who want to learn Spanish! I will be back here as soon as possible! Thank you Arturo and Maica and a great thank you also to the reception staff! The building is small and friendly and everything is there to make everyone feel at ease! A real pleasure to study in such conditions! The teaching material is also very powerful!

Amazing

I really enjoyed this experience, all the teachers in the school are very prepared and they always try to make the lessons funny and interesting. Even if I was the youngest of the class (and I think of the all school) I had a good time with everyone. The activities are various and they give you the possibility of knowing people outside of the scholar contest, which is very important. Thanks to this experience I knew a lot of people from different countries and cultures and this was one of the best opportunities that the school gave us. I absolutely recommend this school, for the place and also for all the people that work there. I had the best time in Barcelona and I hope to come back as soon as possible and take another lessons with Linguaschools

Exciting learning - Spanish language

I decided to learn a new language. I wanted to dive into the Spanish lifestyle and embrace the environment. I found everything I wanted at this school. Its hosted in a beautiful old building in the center of Barcelona. Very nice teachers, nice classrooms and much fun to learn the language.
The process to enroll was easy and they replied very fast. All was so effortless. As I am a beginner and only started to learn Spanish, the staff was perfectly fine to speak english and help me with all my concerns about payments and reaching there.

The host family was great too and it was all easy and straight forward to get there.

I will book another course with them shortly and I cant wait to be back to continue learning,
Thx so much, for putting such a nice environment together.
Cheers Andrea

What would you improve about this program?
I would like to get access to teh audio material as well..., hearing spanish in its real speed is quite hard and having access to audios after school is vert good to learn faster.

Spanisch Intensiv Kurs

-------ENGLISH TRANSLATION----

I was in linguaschools for 3 weeks, attended an intensive course and can recommend this experience to anyone.
I felt very comfortable there. The whole crew was always helpful and very friendly. The lessons were so lively and interesting, the teachers competent and always in a good mood.
The school is very centrally located, so that you can explore the city very well after class.
I opted for a private accommodation about 30 minutes walk from the school. The hostess was so nice and I was able to apply what I had learned.
In addition, Barcelona offers a lot and you can meet people from all over the world.
Conclusion: everything was fine and the course was a lot of fun !!

----------ORIGINAL GERMAN REVIEW---------------

Ich war in der Linguaschools für 3 Wochen, habe einen Intensivkurs besucht und kann dieses Erlebnis jedem nur empfehlen.
Dort habe ich mich sehr wohl gefühlt. Die ganze Crew war immer hilfsbereit und sehr freundlich. Der Unterricht war so lebendig und interessant, die Lehrer kompetent und immer gut gelaunt.
Die Schule liegt sehr zentral, so dass man nach dem Unterricht sehr gut die Stadt erkunden kann.
Ich hatte mich für eine Privat Unterkunft entschieden, die ca. 30 Minuten zu Fuss von der Schule entfernt liegt. Die Gastgeberin war so nett und ich konnte das Gelernte gleich anwenden.
Ausserdem bietet Barcelona viel und man kann Leute aus der ganze Welt kennen lernen.
Fazit: alles hat gepasst und der Kurs hat viel Spass gemacht !!

Great, efficient, fast learning

I took Intensive20 course for over two months, started from complete level 0 and nine weeks later I was able to understand Spanish and express myself with an ease. At first I was a bit worried that classes are taught only in Spanish, but in fact, such learning is very intuitive and is not as tricky as it may sound. It really did sped up the process! The course requires work and concentration, there are tests after each level and they are not easy, so you really have to demonstrate your learning progress in order to jump the level. Most of the teachers have crazy energy and patience, come to classes prepared and those 4 hours just fly by. They provide all the material necessary and really put effort into organising events and social activities for their students. I really enjoyed my time there!

What would you improve about this program?
Better writing desks, for bigger groups - more spacious classrooms!

Awesome experience

I really enjoyed my 4 weeks at Linguaschools in Barcelona. What really made it stand apart from other schools was the high quality of teaching instruction - I was really impressed with all the teachers I had and they all made the classes really enjoyable.
I also chose to do a "host family" through the school and it worked out really well. My husband and I got placed with a really lovely woman who made our month in Barcelona great - we made connections that we never would have normally made without this part.
At times the organization of the classes can be a little lacking, but this is partly because of the system where new students can begin at any week. I have since been to another school in Spain and I can say that Linguaschools Barcelona would be my first choice should I get the opportunity to return and study more!

Highly recommend

I think I got the best experience in study in Spain in this school, I have been anther school in Madrid, but I think this school is better, cuz the teachers are nice and they make the class has so much fun. The class are in a small group, so it is good for each student. The school is so pretty! For the new year, normally people in Spain eat grapes at the mid night, but the for he school, they will let u to eat grapes and drink champán in the mid day, which is so cool!!!! Even the activities is short but we had so much fun the celebrate with the lovely teachers and classmates!!!
Normally for the first day the school will provide free sangria or some drink at the first day after class. So I can make some friends. And all my classmates are so nice, I am really happy to make friends with them. I will come back again if I came back to Barcelona to study Spanish.

A good way to prepare for the DELE

The private tutorials for the DELE B2 turned out to be a good investment. They are accommodating to deaf students.

However, scheduling was problematic, even though the administration reassured me upon registration that it wouldn't be.

Be aware of their cancellation policy: I lost one class - a 40 euro loss - due to an emergency (a major leak in my flat during a big storm).

The teacher was fun, engaging, knowledgeable, punctual, and always prepared. The course was structured around the format of the DELE, with a heavy focus on the oral exam, albeit well-balanced with the reading and written sections, using published materials based on past exams.

NOTE: I marked 10 for housing but that was an irrelevant issue for me as I live in Barcelona.

What would you improve about this program?
More flexible scheduling, with other tutors available in the event of scheduling conflicts. Also, a more flexible cancellation policy.

Best time ever

I studied Spanish for 8 weeks with Linguaschools and had the best time ever. My teachers were young, energetic people and patient. I still cannot believe they taught me Spanish using only Spanish from day one. They take the lessons very seriously, but always with a laugh!

School staff were very friendly and made me feel at home right away. I stayed in a nice apartment on 10 minutes walking and shared with the coolest people from over the world.

All together an experience I'd never forget and I can recommend everyone looking for a nice, moderately priced Spanish school in the city center.
