* Sympathische, sehr kompetente Lehrkräfte!* Gut organisierte Schule* als Student ist man gut aufgehoben, bei Fragen und Problemen wird einem geholfen * Durchschnittsalter und Teilnehmerdurchschnitt pro Klasse weiss ich nicht, war zu wenig lange in der Schule, habe nur wenige Studenten gesehen, aber vorwiegend zwischen 20 und 30-jährige* die Klassengrössen in meinem Zeitraum waren bestimmt unterdurchschnittlich (alleine bis zu 7) Für mich war die Unterkunft perfekt! Aber ich war nur 3 Wochen in der Residenz. Bei längerem Aufenthalt hätte ich einen grösseren bequemeren Schreibtisch vermisst!Die Unabhängigkeit habe ich aber sehr geschätzt und wenn mehrere Studenten da sind, kann man, wenn man will durchaus Kontakt pflegen. Aufenthaltsraum und Essraum mit Mikrowellenherd und Kühlschrank bieten Gelegenheit einander zu treffen. Ich konnte mir einen Jugendtraum erfüllen und bin sehr glücklich darüber :))Die Akzeptanz und Toleranz gegenüber den verschiedenen Nationalitäten und Lebensalter haben mich sehr beeindruckt.

Es sollte ein Hinweis erfolgen, dass die Eingangstür immer verschlossen ist und man klingeln muss. Ich bin mindestens 3x daran vorbei gelaufen.Sehr freundlicher Empfang durch die Damen, die im Convento arbeiten. Zimmer einfach, aber sehr sauber. Schnelles und stabiles Wlan. Der Speisesaal ist sehr eng gestellt und bei voller Belegung sehr laut.Sehr verkehrsgünstig gelegen. Ich würde diese Unterkunft wieder wählen Salamanca ist unkompliziert, weil alles zu Fuß zu besichtigen ist. Man findet sehr schnell Anschluss.

Hat alles bestens geklappt. Die Kurse waren gut. Fünf Stunden am Stück ist aber schon recht intensiv. Das Zusatzangebot ist allerdings eher mager (nur EIN Ausflug pro Woche, wenn er denn überhaupt zustande kam). Salamanca ist eine sehr angenehme Stadt.

Don Quijote, Salamanca 
Duration: 3 months

Salamanca is packed with students and therefore very lively. This makes for a unique, very friendly atmosphere. You get to meet new people very quickly. In Salamanca, everything is at walking distance, which is very pleasant. At the Don Quijote language school, Spanish is taught by very friendly and dedicated teachers. Alongside grammar, they teach us about Spanish specificities and customs. I really enjoyed my three-month language course there!

From the very first moments, this Spanish student town fascinated me. The architecture – which is beautiful by night and by day – as well as the very varied nightlife, conquered me. In Salamanca, one can feel the typically Spanish mentality, tapas and sangria being part of it. All the attractions are nearby and the accommodations are at the most 15 minutes away from the breathtakingly beautiful old town and from the school, which is convenient. I am very pleased to have chosen the Don Quijote School, the teachers are very motivated, very helpful, nice, and they always have an anecdote from their daily life to tell us. In the school building itself there is a café, where you can eat something between two classes or chat with the other students. The interior patio is also a place where students gather and discuss. All in all, I fully enjoyed my stay in Salamanca and I would do another stay at Don Quijote without hesitation.

Don Quijote, Salamanca
Duration: 16 weeks

Here are a few reasons why I am very happy with my language study stay in Spain. First of all, Salamanca is really beautiful. There is a host of small museums and historical buildings to discover. It is not a big city but the atmosphere is warm and the nightlife is very lively thanks to the large number of students. Due to its small size, you don’t even have to use the bus to get around the city centre.

The school is located in an old convent (with a beautiful architecture), which is close to the town centre (5 minutes’ walk to Plaza Major). As regards the school’s teachers and staff, I find them very friendly and always available. I would also like to say that the administrative team fix both small and big issues very quickly.

Finally, I am satisfied with the apartment I share with other foreign students. Not only does it allow me to be independent (as regards meals, for instance), but I also get to know other students and to practise my Spanish with them.

Host family
Selected with the greatest care by our partner school, the host families represent an ideal environment for learning Spanish in authentic cultural immersion. Staying with a host family, you will be in direct contact with the real, everyday life of the country, via the food, culture and language. You will stay in a single room and share breakfast and evening meals with your hosts. This is the best way to improve your language skills outside of class time.

Shared apartment (from 18 years old)
Shared apartments are an excellent accommodation option if you are looking for more independence. You will share an apartment with four or five international students from the school. Staying in a single room and sharing the kitchen, living room and bathroom, you will meet people from all over the world and enjoy a highly social experience. The apartments all have a TV and a washing machine, and common rooms are cleaned once a week.

Residence (from 18 years old)
Located in the heart of Salamanca, a 10-20 minutes’ walk from the school, these residences host international as well as Spanish students. They all offer 20-50 single rooms, free Wi-Fi, free computers and many shared bathrooms (ensuite rooms are available at an extra cost). There is no kitchen onsite (only fridges), but there are many restaurants surrounding the residence.

Discover Salamanca and its surroundings through the exciting range of activities arranged by the school. As well as visiting the museums and monuments that reflect the city’s grand past, you can simply explore the sunny streets and charming plazas that surround the school at your own pace. As an important university city, Salamanca has been a magnet for students for centuries – this means there are plenty of affordable and friendly places to eat and drink throughout the city.
