« Ja, ik heb erg veel vooruitgang geboekt. Ik heb binnen twee weken mijn A2 diploma gehaald nadat ik een jaar lang bijna geen woord Spaans had gesproken. Dit kwam zeker door de goede docenten die duidelijk uitleg gaven en altijd extra hulp aanboden. »

MI sono trovata benissimo riguardo la famiglia che mi ospitava: simpatica la proprietaria, molto comoda e spaziosa la stanza e soprattutto ideale la posizione nell'Eixample. Ho adorato davvero il quartiere e la localizzazione.Riguardo la scuola don Quijote, i due insegnanti della mattina erano bravissimi: Ivàn e Chelo. Si bilanciavano, erano preparati e sapevano tener viva l'attenzione. Davvero bravi.Una nota negativa devo darla alla scuola per l'organizzazione: ho frequentato un corso intensivo di 6 ore giornaliere con SOLO 20 minuti di pausa tra le prima due lezioni. Non è stata prevista nemmeno una mezz'ora di pausa prima o durante le 2 ore di conversazione. Scandaloso! Troppo faticoso. Rieto che gli insegnanti avuti erano davvero molto bravi e partecipativi. Esperienza divertente. Le ore di conversazone invece troppo ripetitive.

Ich habe viele neue Eindrücke in der Stadt Barcelona und in der Schule Don Quijote gewonnen. Barcelona ist eine fantastische Stadt. Die Schule Don Quijote und die Lehrkräfte sind hervorragend, motivierend und sehr kompetent. Es hat mir unheimlich viel Spaß gemacht und ich habe viel gelernt, auch wenn es für mch sehr anspruchsvoll war. Ich komme gerne noch einmal nach Barcelona und an die Schule! Die schule hält, was sie verspricht. Alle Räumlichkeiten sind gut geeignet, WiFi funktioniert, der Garten ist gut zum Erholen, aber es war einfach zu wenig Zeit im Intensivkurs. Viele Menschen aus verschiedenen Ländern machen die Schule serh interessant. Einfach super, auf jeden Studerenden wird gut eingegangen. Maria Rosa Vera ist eine herzensliebe Person, mit der ich mich täglich gut unterhalten konnte. Daher hat es mir Spaß gemacht bei ihr zu wohnen. Das Zimmer war leider etwas klein und das Bett war für mich zu kurz und etwas unbequem.Das Frühstück war für mich ungewohnt spärlich; das Abendessen war aber ok. Ein Duschbad nur für 2 Studenten war sehr sauber und gepflegt und gut geeignet. Maria hat zudem 1x meine Wäsche gewaschen. Ich hatte einen eigenen Hausschlüssel und konnte kommen und gehen wann ich wollte.Insgesamt würde ich 4 Sterne vergeben. Ich bin sehr froh, dass ich diese 2 Wochen in Barcelona und an dieser Schule Don Quijote war. Ich habe viel gelernt, viele nette Menschen getroffen. Die Schule kann ich von ganzem Herzen empfehlen. Barcelona ist eine fantastische Stadt, die jeder gesehen haben sollte.

« Ja. Ich habe viel neue Vokablen gelernt, und zudem Grammatik Kenntnisse erweitert. Die Inetnsivkurse mit Gesprächsrunden am Nachmittag haben sehr viel Spaß gemacht. Ich habe sehr gute Erkenntnisse über meinen Wissensstand erfahrne und die Lehrkräfte haben meine Kenntnisse immer berücksichtigt. Anspruchsvoll und liebevoll ! »
School highlights
« Der Unterricht vormittags in einer kleinen Gruppe war hervorragend (4-5 Teilnehmer). Die Lehrkräfte sind sehr kompetent und überaus freundlich, der Unterricht wird konsequent gestaltet, aber mit Herz. Ich habe insbesondere von Chelo viele gute Tipps bekommen. Kompliment an die beste Lehrerin die ich jemals hatte: Chelo! »
Top tips
« Austausch mit anderen Schülern im gleichen Alter möglichst nutzen. Barcelona besichtigen, soweit es möglich ist! »

Don Quijote, Barcelona
Duration: 2 weeks

A language stay is a combination of training, new experiences, holiday, fun and contact with international students! I chose to go to Barcelona for 2 weeks because it’s a very lively city where you can find parties, shopping, beaches and culture. And also because ESL gave me good advice and I felt confortable with them straight away. The WG accommodation is perfect if you want to meet new people easily. The school is modern and teachers are very qualified and motivated. It was a successful trip; I have really good memories and, of course, I made some good progress in Spanish. I started from zero and I went up to the next level during the course! I would recommend this experience to anyone!

Don Quijote, Barcelona
Duration: 14 weeks

My 14 weeks in Barcelona were absolutely amazing! Looking back to that period of my life, I can easily say that it was the best one; I met so many interesting people, coming from different countries and backgrounds. I built some lasting and special friendships with people from all over the world, improved my Spanish, developed my personality, manage to live by myself and found out that I can’t cook… I discovered a new “me”.
