Student reviews & feedback

The course was very good and met my expectations as a beginner in learning Spanish. The tutors were very good and helpful. Other staff were also very helpful. The class size was small and I found this helpful. The accommodation in the school was satisfactory.

I attended the Alicante School 19th to 23rd and had one to one lessons with Christina. This was my third visit to the School, unfortunately I can only do a week at a time. I have always enjoyed it but this time was my favourite. Christina made our couple of hours each day together the fastest two hours I can remember. We had fun but at the same time I really felt I made such progress, so much that had puzzled me just fell into place. I’ll be back to do all over again as soon as I can!

What else could you want? A school full of talented, lovely tutors and in a lovely city like Alicante! Love coming here.

Very short as bank holiday on the Monday but good. We had two teachers - one was excellent and I felt we progressed a lot with him, the other was not as good. Great to meet people. Not initially clear the difference between normal and intensive so I nearly missed out on the extra hour of conversation classes - would be good to have been told about that. ould definitely try to do it for longer next time. It would be good to have an idea of class hours before arriving.

The course was fun but very informative. Your staff are friendly and bring the language alive. I'm just sorry I can't sign up for several weeks at a time.. but I will be back asap

I left the course more enthusiastic than ever to one day conquer Spanish! Can't give a better recommendation that that!

I really enjoyed the course. The teachers were very good and we had a good laugh ! There were only 4 in our group so concentration levels needed to be high. I feel a lot more confident now and look forward to another course in the near future.

I would definitely recommend this course and this school. Go on the guided tours: the guide is a real pleasure to be with. All the museums had free entry .

The course was very enjoyable, I was put in an A1 class so knew the majority of what was being taught, so it was more a revision week for me. If I was staying longer I would have asked to be moved to A2. The accommodation was basic, but fine for what I needed.

Teachers were very friendly and I felt very comfortable speaking my Spanish with them. Very pleasant and relaxed environment in the classrooms and everyone in my classes were very nice and friendly. Feel like I learnt more Spanish in my one week here than in 2 years of Spanish at school. Only disappointment is that I couldn't have gone for longer :)

My host family was very nice and I felt very at home. Also only spoke in Spanish so was a good opportunity to practise my Spanish.

The course was good and the staff were friendly and always willing to help. I did feel myself improving on a daily basis. My accommodation was really well located as I was walking distance from pretty much everything. My host family was also very friendly and happy to help me with my Spanish.

I spent a week at A2 level in an Alicante (Feb 2017). Fantastic! Good class size of 6 students with friendly & patient students. Varied mix of ages; I'm 51 yrs, but age immaterial as it's one's interest in the country, culture & enthusiasm that counts. For me (travelling solo) this was the best way to see a Spanish city, improve my Spanish, experience life with a very friendly Spanish family & meet others that I could have wished for

I stayed with a very accommodating & friendly Spanish family & loved it. They made me feel very welcome & even though my Spanish language is only at advanced beginner level (A2). They made every effort to include me in conversation over dinner. This really helped me improve confidence in speaking the language. It is important to recognise that host accommodation is different from staying in a hotel & that you are the guest, so fitting in with the family's routine is vital. Dinner typically quite late (9:30pm) in Spain, but this was fine as I did sightseeing in the afternoon/ early evening after lessons

Everything was very efficiently organised. I found it very easy to book through Apple languages as I was able to discuss my requirements on the phone and they were able to advise me on the specifics of the school & advance arrangements needed. Everything was very clear, with prompt e-mail communication, confirmation & contact details for host family. I like the fact that they (Apple languages) are able to offer a wide selection of locations & advise accordingly on the merits of each place/ school. Would definitely use again.

The course was good for being immersed in the language. I was only there for one week and one day there was no school due to a bank holiday but I was aware of this when I booked it. It would be more beneficial to be there longer. I would consider going on another course in the future.

Emily found the total immersion technique extremely good and thought that she could have learnt the language really well if she had stayed longer. She said that the teachers were very good particularly the person that gave her one-to-one tuition.

I found the course challenging, but very rewarding, the standard and style of teaching was exellent. The tutors, Pedro and Venesa not only made it interesting but also kept an element of fun to it. Overall it was an experience not to be missed.

I stayed with a lovely landlady, who is also a great cook, the food alone was something to remember. Each and every one of the students in Mabels care were treated like a member of the family.

Terrific teachers and staff. Had a very enjoyable time and was very pleased to be put into the correct level. Well done to all. The host family we stayed with was terrific. The food was great, she was very honest and fully emersed us in the language at home.

The course was really good as there was only four people in total, which meant we had a better chance of learning the Spanish language. The accommodation was great in terms of the breakfast I received and the hospitality. However, I had no WI-FI during my time there, to talk to people at night back at home. The course all in all was really good, it was a great way to learn the Spanish course as no one spoke a word of English.

I really enjoyed the course, the staff were really friendly and very helpful and I am hoping to go back again to the same school next year. The lady I stayed with was very friendly and welcoming which was very important for me as I was on my own and was hoping for a friendly face!! She put me at my ease and encouraged me as I tried to speak Spanish with her.

I was placed in a level I felt was really appropriate for me and enjoyed all the classes. Shared student accomodation is basic but I thought the apartment was fine and with classes, the beach and meeting up with new friends, I was hardly ever really in it. Once again, Apple Languages staff were incredibly helpful and professional prior to the course and always returned calls promptly.

The course was lively and the four hours went quickly every day! I liked the mix of sudents and the fact that we were all encouraged to participate. The tutors were very good, patient and interesting. This is the second course I have done - the school is friendly and there seems to be a well organised social element. I hope to do another course next year!

The course was really good, the level test was absolutely right and I was in a class that just followed on what I had been doing in the UK - but this time I understood it! The classes were good fun, the teachers were good and the 5 hrs a day flew by. I would like to go again!

The courses were very challenging, yet doable… The instructors were very knowledgeable and helpful. I was very fortunate to have been placed with host family with two lovely daughters and an adorable little dog named Kiko. We became very good friends and they are now my Spanish family forever.
