Study Spanish in Santiago de Compostela - a gem of a city!
I’ll be honest, I knew NOTHING about Santiago de Compostela before I arrived. A pretty poor show on my part, I know, but my university suggested the location, the dates, put us in touch with the company who arranged my Spanish course… I just went with the flow, paid my money and turned up at the airport on time!
And I’m so glad they chose Santiago de Compostela - it really is a little gem of a city! It is so unspoilt, small enough that you can walk pretty much everywhere, not to mention the fact that it is downright beautiful. The old town is incredible; I’ve been all over Spain and never seen anything like it. The stone cobbled streets are smooth and shiny like glass, from so many centuries worth of people walking those streets, (but watch out, those smooth cobbles get very slippery when it rains!). The buildings are breathtaking, everything is so well preserved, you really can imagine that this is exactly how the city looked 600 years ago… I felt like I was exploring an amazing movie set! And the great thing about Santiago is that the old town is still a thriving, active part of the city, not just ‘a bunch of historic buildings’, which let’s face it, are great to look at but sometimes a bit soulless.
I was really impressed with the course; the lessons were interesting and fun. I feel that my Spanish has greatly improved as a result.
I would have no hestiation recommending Apple Languages to anyone looking for a similar experience. I was so impressed I have bookmarked you for future reference.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course. The teachers were very knowledgeable and patient. I will be recommending this course.
Two weeks, two teachers, both excellent with different styles and personalities.

Although I was only there for one week I had plenty of opportunity to practise speaking Spanish which was something I really needed to do!
Everything about the course was very well organized and prepared; I learned a great deal. I will be back!
We would recommend this school to anyone. The staff were extremely friendly but very professional and very skilled at working at the level each individual required.
