Ich habe während meiner Zeit in Valencia, Spanien viel gelernt und gesehen! Eine unglaublich nette Frau, die einen sehr warm begrüßt und sehr gut bekocht. Sie lässt einem die Privatsphäre, die man brauch man kann sich aber auch immer ins Wohnzimmer dazu setzen mit ihr fernsehen oder quatschen. Sie ist stets hilfsbereit und unglaublich liebenswert. Ich habe meine Zeit sehr genossen und war sehr traurig als ich gehen musste. Ich habe mich wie zu Hause gefühlt!

Valencia, città stupenda, non troppo grande e comoda Una delle esperienze più belle della mia vita, ad essere sincera non tanto dal punto di vista dell'apprendimento della lingua, in quanto tra i ragazzi della scuola si parla più inglese che spagnolo, ma il mix di culture e persone che si possono conoscere è indescrivibile

Raffaela Del Sordo
Don Quijote, Valencia
Duration: 3 weeks

I had always wanted to take a language course abroad, but I had never found the time or the courage to do it. However, I still wanted to learn the language directly in the country and the Don Quijote school in Valencia gave me this opportunity. In Valencia, people are very open-minded and helpful, which I really appreciated. The teachers at the school were very competent and I enjoyed learning Spanish. I met many new people. The whole trip was very interesting.

Don Quijote, Valencia
Duration: 4 weeks

Valencia is a small town. It is home to hardly 1 million inhabitants but its history is very interesting. The mild climate, beautiful historical monuments and la playa make it a great destination!!!

Host family
Staying with a host family is a unique experience to make the most out of your language study trip. The fact of being constantly immersed in the Spanish language and culture allows you to gain very fast progress in both understanding and expressing the language. The students stay in single rooms and have half board provided.

Shared apartments
Very popular in Spain, shared apartments give you the chance to live with other international students. You will stay in a single room, sharing the common rooms and facilities (living room, fitted kitchen, bathroom, washing machine, TV...) with your flatmates.

Valencia Campus residence
Another option which offers the possibility to make friends from around the world is accommodation in a university residence. Situated 35 minutes from the school by public transport, this residence has bright and fully-equipped single bedrooms (with study desk, air-conditioning, telephone, Internet) and students have half board provided.
