Intensive Spanish course reviews Elcano

I definitely recommend this school to anyone of any level who is looking for Spanish lessons!

This is the second time I take Spanish classes at this school, I did the intensive courses and I really have to say that the teachers and administrators are amazing, they did everything possible to prepare fun classes, interesting and useful materials between learning basic Spanish (vocabulary, grammar, phrases, etc.)

Before COVID-19, there were even outdoor activities for you to practice your Spanish in real-life circumstances. The teachers took us to the Central Market, Museums, etc. Talking and practicing with the locals.

I started from zero and have learned a lot in just a couple of weeks. The classroom is very spacious, classes usually come in small groups so you can learn faster and interact more with teachers.

Administrators also plan fun activities (Halloween party, tapas night and movie night, etc.), language exchange with locals, etc.
Now, during COVID-19, they follow a very strict pattern of wearing masks all the time, taking the temperature before entering school, cleaning and disinfecting after each class and there are hand sanitizers EVERYWHERE!
