Long-term Spanish Course in Granada

Overall rating: 10 based on 1 reviews

Program Description

This Spanish course features four classes every day to allow students to enhance their holidays with language study. The course is recommended for those who wish to combine a relaxed language course with the study of Spanish culture in real life situations. Students who are absolute beginners or those looking to improve their linguistic skills are welcome to join.

Classes are conducted entirely in Spanish and are divided into two distinct parts. The first part deals with the Spanish language itself, explaining its grammatical structures and communicative functions. The second part contains specific topics in order to combine cultural themes with individual oral skills.

A written exam and a self-assessment oral test will be sent with the course documents in order to determine your skill level. Students must turn in these supporting documents no later than one week before their course is due to begin. All Spanish courses begin on Monday.

Spanish classes are capped at 8 students per group and are held from Monday to Friday between 09.00 and 15.45 h. There are 4 Spanish courses every day, lasting 45 minutes each. Students are placed into groups (A1/A2/B1/B2/C1/C2) based on the results of their placement exams. Our teachers are very knowledgeable about evaluating students' language abilities.

Starting dates for all levels in 2018: every Monday.

    Review this program
    I was at the Escuela Montalbán in Granada doing an Intensive long-term Spanish course, which included 2 classes of grammar and 2 conversation classes per day. I started from the very beginning and improved my Spanish very quickly thanks to a professionalism of the teachers and very well selected groups. In fact, I was able to communicate with other students with the same level of Spanish, which helped us learn Spanish more efficiently with a help of a teacher and have fun as well.

    The staff of the Spanish school was extremely friendly and helpful, especially Paco. In the first day they helped me with my accommodation, informed me about different possibilities and important places in the city, and helped me get my debit card in a bank, which was incredibly important as well.

    The accommodation was provided by the school. In the apartment I lived with 4 Spanish persons, who helped me boost my Spanish and experience Spanish culture and traditions. They were very friendly, kind and open-minded.

    On the one hand, teachers were very professional and provided well-structured content. On another hand, they were very funny making a lot of jokes. Thus, they delivered a great combination of serious and funny content, which helped us feel comfortable and learn Spanish in a great atmosphere.

    Another important part of learning Spanish language and culture took place outside of our classes. The school organized different social and cultural activities in the evenings and on weekends. In the first week we went to the Arabic bath, which helped me relieve stress from the first days of my adaptation to a new country. Moreover, I discovered an incredible art-form, which was born in Granada and called Flamenco. The flamenco show included very emotional and expressional music and dance. I fell in love with it and would love to experience it again. Another incredible activity was a tapa tour with the teacher Marisa, when almost all the students went out together to explore the tapas culture in different local bars. There is a tradition in Granada to give tapas for free when you order a drink.

    I would definitely recommend this school to everybody, who wants to learn Spanish and discover a great culture of the beautiful Granada and Spain in general.
