Viva Espagna y Enforex

10/10

Sorry for my English (google translator).
I’m French, but my mum was from Spain, she married with my French dad. I know some Spanish because my mum but she died and I don’t want to forget my mother’s language and I want to read in Spanish.
Enforex gave me all I wanted: good accomodation, good classes, good environment, good people. Everything was good for me. That was my experience. And I am not a child.

Los mejores profesores con mucha involucración personal

8/10

Realmente escribo para agradecerle muchísimo a Enforex Barcelona los estudios más maravillosos que tuve allí hace un año. Fue una experiencia increíble y extremadamente útil para aprender el idióma.
Tuve clases con José Ángel Díaz Blanco, que es un profesor por naturaleza, con talento y pasión en enseñanza. Me explicó muchísimas cosas que ahora encuentro muy útiles en mi trabajo (soy intérprete). No creo que sin sus clases haya podido trabajar tan bien como lo logro hacer ahora.
Además tengo que decir que voy este año también, será ya el cuarto seguido, y todos los años elijo Enforex. Los profesores son super guay, y no lo percibes como pura enseñanza, sino también como el modo de pasar tiempo a gusto. Yo a los profesores los veo también como a mis amigos, y al cabo de curso nos mantenemos en contacto, nos escribimos y tal, y claro que la parte personal te deja unos recuerdos importantes.

How can this program be improved?

A veces cuando venía a mi lugar de alojamiento - siempre elijo un piso de estudiantes con una habitación personal - la vivienda no la encuentro preparada para la llegada de estudiantes nuevos O sea, hasta cierto grado falla el servicio de limpieza, que en teoría tiene que venir cada fin de semana para limpiar el piso para que los estudiantes nuevos entren en un piso ya preparado para vivir en él.

A good course about the spanish culture

8/10

I had a great time at this school and I learned a lot about Spanish literature. This course helped me get a good grade on my academic career. The teachers are excellent professionals eager to help you get the best results. A highly recommended course.

How can this program be improved?

Maybe they could improve the accommodation, so I hope that these contingencies were solved soon.

A WASTE OF MONEY!!!

3/10

This school and it's partner school Don Quixote, are a waste of MONEY!!!! Their websites boast that their teachers are all university educated and speaks multiple foreign languages, FALSE! Most of the teachers do not, which is not a problem unless you are the in beginner's level like I was. None of the staff members did either, making inquiring about anything (school related, accommodation, or even excursions) very difficult. The Spanish teachers are out of work Spaniards that can't find a job in their field of study during the country's Economic Crisis, therefore will take this teaching job that only pays them 8Euros/hr. And their work ethic reflects their wages. I had a teacher that sat in her chair just talking to the students about their weekend, and when she's ask to spell anything out, she'll just pronounce it really slowly. When you asked her to slow down (the Spanish have a reputation for speaking fast), she'll yell at you and say that, "this is how Spanish people speak and if you were going to live here, you will have to catch up"!. Remember, this is a beginner's course and you are paying thousands of dollars to take lesson from this person. When I complained about it, they just said they spoke to her and apologizes on her behalf. That's it, that's how much my thousands of dollars paid for.

SAVE YOUR MONEY! There are so many accredited language schools out there all over Spain that are much cheaper and much better in quality. They care more about showing the students a good time through the many planned repeated excursions than in quality learning.

Response from Enforex

Hello Missbea,

In response to your complaint and for the sake of clarity, both Enforex and don Quijote make every effort to hire only trained professionales in teaching Spanish as a second language. We believe that proper education is fundumental to our students. However, we would like you to contact us and tell us about your experience so that we can take the proper actions regarding the professor and class that you are referring to.

Best regards,
Enforex and don Quijote team

Two awesome weeks in Madrid

9/10

Academically, this program was just okay. They did the typical textbook thing, assigned homework, sit around the table and go around the room and take your turn participating. The real learning took place in the city - my Spanish got a lot better by practicing with the locals. I liked this program more because I met so many people my age from around the world and made some great friends that I still keep in touch with, even over the short span of two weeks. Enforex is an adequate language course, but just know that you'll learn a lot more through cultural immersion and meeting Spaniards!
