An amazing experience in the summer intensive course!

9/10

I am currently enrolled in a summer intensive course at Enforex, Salamanca and have been having an amazing experience! I wanted to brush up on what Spanish I had learned in school and I have already learned way more than I thought I would. The 'profesores' are very approachable, patient, and diligent. I really like that we solely speak Spanish in class because I feel I am really being immersed in the language. However, while I am learning a lot, I will say that for a complete beginner even the first level may be difficult because they do not always go over the fundamentals.

There are people young and old that come from all over the world to take classes here. It is amazing to be in a room of people that I normally would not have a language in common with and be able to communicate through Spanish. And it makes me so happy to be able to speak Spanish to people in the town and make friends here.

I did not participate in the housing they provide, so I cannot speak to it. But I would recommend both Enforex and Salamanca for anyone wanting to learn more Spanish, meet great people, and experience a bit of the Spanish culture.

How can this program be improved?

One way this program may improve is by providing a class before A1 for students who have never taken Spanish before. That way they could learn basic grammar and fundamentals of Spanish before beginning A1.

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.
