Perhaps you have a particular interest in Spanish literature, art or history, and this course will allow you to tailor your learning to fit these individual interests.

Student reviews & feedback

The teaching was excellent with experienced, supportive and friendly staff. I would highly recommend this school for its excellent standard and value for money.

The apartment was great - quiet, very clean and large room with private bathroom. It was right next to the school and right in the heart of the city.

This was such an amazing experience! The teachers were great, the school was in a great location and planned tons of free/cheap activities, and my Spanish improved a lot.

My home stay was wonderful- they were able to match me up with a vegetarian family that lived very close to the school, and we became very close over my month long stay!

This school is very structured - there was an introduction on the first day which helped to explain the structure of the classes which I thought worked extremely well. All the staff were very friendly and approachable and I felt I did improve my Spanish by attending this school.

Excellent teachers and a very nice traditional building. Good grading of ability and the teachers had flexibility to move students once the course had started depending on how they performed in class which kept all students at a similar level.

I also enjoyed the activities provided by the school allowing you to mix with students of different courses and abilities.

The school was flexible with which class I should join. In the end, I joined a beginner class which was a review but very appropriate for my abilities. Classes always started on time and the two instructors had great personalities and did a nice job.

My accommodation couldn't have been more appropriate. I could tell that a lot of effort went into matching the students with the families. If I return, I would ask for the same hostess.

I had a really great experience and am planning to do another course. I may look for a Spanish course in another city just to experience a new environment.

The accommodation [shared apartment] was ok.

I would only like to add that [the school] is a great language school with excellent teaching staff. I would be happy to return there and to recommend it to others.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Granada, and I always found the school staff to be very kind and well prepared. I absolutely loved both my accommodation and the people managing it, and its unique position gave me a fantastic occasion to move and explore the wonderful quarter of the Albaicìn. Granada is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to, which added to the experience of learning a new language I particularly cared about. Its history, art and tradition make it a most enjoyable place to study and learn about another culture.

Excellent support from experienced admin and teaching staff. Experienced, enthusiastic, friendly staff. Lively, enjoyable lessons which improved my Spanish on all levels. Was placed in exactly the right level group. Great atmosphere that made making new friends and contacts very easy. Superb range of excursions - day, evening, weekend. Many free of charge such as the excellent guided tours and open air cinema. I would highly recommend.

The first family was unsuitable as there was a smoker in the house. The school moved me to a better family within 6 hours. Bright, airy appartment in the centre of town. Lovely couple.

On the first day we were asked a few questions by a teacher in order to assess our level and place us in a class, I found that my class was perfect for my level of Spanish! The teachers almost always spoke Spanish but at a pace which we could all easily follow. I felt so much more confident with my Spanish after 4 weeks.

My accommodation was a flat with other students about 10 minutes' walk from the school, it was in an ideal location on a plaza with a mini supermarket, cafes and plenty of tapas bars! I found living with students to be best for me as it enabled me to make friends quickly and easily, and although we were all native English speakers we all tried to add a bit of 'Spanglish' into our conversations.

The school organised activities every day in the afternoons/evenings which was a great opportunity to meet people and make the most of our time in Granada. My favourite activity was definitely the weekly tapas night! I also had the opportunity to visit the world famous Alhambra thanks to the school.

Exceeded my expectations, absolutely no-stress but motivating atmosphere. Loved it, finally my Spanish is communicative!

Great accommodation, though maybe a bit too dark (room in a tenement located quite low). We loved living there and started to feel like a locals thanks to our host.

Great service in all aspects, both Apple service, our host and the school were great.

I had an excellent week of classes in Granada. The courses were all very well organised and the school did whatever they possibly could to help out the students - to make sure that they were in the right level of class, etc. I particularly enjoyed the fact that every day the lessons were 1.5 hrs of learning grammar and 1.5 hrs of conversation where the teacher made sure that everybody spoke/had a chance to speak.

I stayed in the school accommodation. It was a flat right next to the school, very well located in the old town. The room was nice and big and if there were any problems they were fixed straight away.

Brilliant school with excellent teachers.

I am writing this to say a huge Thank You to you and your team for arranging my trip to Granada!

I had the most amazing experience! Everything - from my host, who made me so very welcome, to my time in school, the trips I experienced - just a fantastic time!

The school was great - the tutors were lots of fun while at the same time, being very professional with lots of interesting teaching styles, to encourage each student. I was hugely impressed and saw that they genuinely love their roles at the school. I went on lots of really interesting trips too, so much history, and being accompanied by tutors brought it all to life.

Everyone I met made me feel so very welcome - I feel I had a taste of real Spain in this beautiful city, and had so many interesting conversations with local people too. So, once again, thank you all so much for making this experience possible, arranging everything so well.

My experience has been overwhelmingly positive. The course offered the right balance of a formal curriculum alongside additional lessons tailored for my individual needs as a learner. After only a fortnight, I left the course with a far more comprehensive knowledge of key grammatical concepts that I had always struggled to grasp as a learner in the UK. More importantly, this course completely re-ignited my passion for learning Spanish which had begun to wane in recent years. The accommodation (a host family) was equally excellent. My host family was extremely hospitable and quickly made me feel at home. My only regret is that I was not able to stay longer.

Free tapas in Granada!

I’ve just come back from 4 weeks studying in Granada and it’s by far the most stunning Spanish city I’ve been to! I really loved every minute there. It’s unlike anywhere else – You realize this from the minute you arrive, with the incredible Arabic palace "La Alhambra" towering over the city, and the snow-capped Sierra Nevada Mountains behind – You just know you’ve arrived somewhere special! There is also the stunning Albaicin area, the old town, in which there are a series of old narrow streets with typical old buildings and Moroccan stalls and Moroccan tea houses….where you get a real feel for how Granada would have been right back in the time of the Arabs.
