Hey everybody, Not sure if anybody can help but I really want to improve my very basic Spanish skills so am thinking about combining a holiday with some Spanish lessons in Spain this Summer. Can anybody recommend a good language school in Madrid or Barcelona? Many thanks x

My wife and I run a small language centre in Alicante, Spain, teaching Spanish, French and English. Alicante is the perfect place to combine a holiday with a Spanish course! We are located right on the seafront in the centre of town close to all the bars, restaurants, museums, beach etc. We can provide accomodation if required and airport transfers are free!
If you require any futher information please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi... I studied in Spain for two years. The University of Salamanca has one of the best language schools that I have ever attended. From my personal experience I can tell you that the fastest way to learn is through TOTAL immersion and in Madrid and Barcelona you will be able to speak English if you want and that is dangerous. If you get in the habit of speaking in English when you have difficulty expressing something, it is a difficult habit to break. I HIGHLY recommend going to a place like Salamanca. They have a wonderful language school with a great program that caters to all levels of Spanish. They also have culture and other helpful reading comprehension and conversational courses. I very much recommend it. http://corintio.usal.es/ and there number is 011 (+34) 923 294 418. If you have any other questions please let me know. I studied at the University of Salamanca for one year so I know a lot about the school and its courses.

Hiya. I've been looking for some good spanish courses too. A friend of mine studied at Salamanca University last summer and she said it was great too. She stayed in a student residence which she liked but I was considering staying with a host family. Any recommendations for which is better?

We have a Spanish language school in Madrid, I won't tell we are the best, but we've been teaching since 1973. For more info, www.spanishcoursemadrid.com

I have been studying Spanish for a while and last year went to do a 4 week course in Alicante. I would recommend staying with a host family as I went from my gorgeous apartment here to staying in student accommodation with 5 other sudents and didn't enjoy that at all. As the students are obviously not Spanish and I wanted to mix with the Spanish. I did go salsa dancing and mix with the spanish and loved chatting to my tutors but if I did anything like that again, I would definately stay with a spanish family so as not to waste any time in dirty student accommodation.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to give me a shout.
Have fun!! G x
