TARONJA LANGUAGE EXCHANGE
The school has established a peer-coaching system between its students and native speakers. These communication sessions with locals are called “Taronja Language Exchange” and are very popular. Every week from October to June, participants have the possibility to meet a resident of Valencia once a week and practice what they learned in class. From then on, they become both teachers of their mother tongue and students of Spanish. The event is free, and has already become the best-known language exchange in Valencia.

À tous égards le meilleur séjour linguistique jamais réalisé.Une excellente école, très bien organisée. Personnel enseignant et administratif très sympathique. Moyens techniques (informatique) top niveau.Valence est une ville où l'on ne peut que vivre heureux grâce à ses multiples facettes : historique, moderne, artistique, distractif, sans parler de son exceptionnelle plage de sable immaculé. Quant à l'Espagne, c'est un pays chaleureux et accueillant où l'on a envie de revenir. École en plein centre ville "au milieu de tout." Famille composée d'une femme divorcée et de sa jeune fille (17 ans).Personne très dévouée aimant et entretenant le contact avec ses pensionnaires (5 en tout dans deux chambres).Bonne cuisinière ayant à cœur de préparer des repas variés et de qualité. Beaucoup d'activités variées proposées. Impossible de se trouver désœuvré. Mon meilleur séjour linguistique.

Die Schule ist super gelegen, mitten im Zentrum! Junge und motivierte Lehrer und viel Abwechslung im Unterricht! Einfach toll! Ich habe mich von Anfang an wohl gefühlt bei Loles und Fernando! Auch ihre beiden Töchter Marta und Lucía haben mich herzlich empfangen! Wir hatten am Esstisch immer viel zu lachen, es war eine tolle Zeit! Ich hatte eine unvergessliche Zeit in Valencia, vielen Dank!

My stay in Valencia was great! As for the school, the very original setting it offers but also by the quality of its teachers as well as the excellent atmosphere charmed me. The work methods are well designed, all the teachers are competent and listen to the students. Also, the activities offered by the school make the exchange with the other international students easier and the proximity of the teachers allow us to know the whole teaching staff but also the whole school staff as well as getting familiar with what brings us all together: the language. The weekend excursions are magical for they allow us to visit other Spanish cities. Moreover, the school’s director activity consisting in preparing a typical recipe of the country every week is enriching.

As for the city, I was enthralled by the subtle mix of antique aspect of the city center, so sumptuous, (especially at night) and the modern aspect of the city of arts and sciences as well as its harbor and its beach (not far from the school, very fast by metro). Thanks to the alchemy between these two facets, there are a lot of things to visit and discover. During the summer, Valencia is only sun and heat; the big plus of this city is that it has its own beach, which allows to relax at any time of the day. I recommend the city of Valencia to all, to be immersed in the Spanish culture and of course the Taronja school to learn the language. This will remain an unforgettable stay for me!! I also wanted to thank you once again for organizing my stay as well as your precious advice concerning my final choices.

Taronja, Valencia
Duration: 4 weeks

Thanks to ESL, I spent a month in Valencia last summer and I will never forget this experience. The city is fantastic, perfect for beach and party lovers, but also a superb destination on a cultural level. There is so much to see and visit that the month I spent there seemed almost too short to me. I really felt comfortable at the Taronja school: it is located right in the town centre and the young and friendly teachers use their great creativity to teach the language in a fun way. I arrived with a basic knowledge of Spanish and achieved a level B2 at the end of my stay. The school organises activities almost every evening, including tapas or paella parties, movie nights, flamenco and beach parties, and excursions at the end of the week. These were perfect opportunities to get to know the other students from the school, who came from all over the world, and have a great time together. I also felt very comfortable with my host family; I don’t have anything to complain about. They were very nice and available; the food was excellent too. You just need to adapt to Spanish meal times, which are a bit late! I’ve kept excellent relationships with them, to the point of going back to visit them in the following months and I hope I can go back there again!

Host family
A home away from home – this is the ideal option if you are looking for the warmth of a home as well as daily interaction with a local, Valencian family. You will be staying with hosts who have been carefully selected by our partner school and live at a reasonable distance from the school. Choosing from half-board and full-board, you will use Spanish in an authentic context outside of class.

Apartment
Choose this option if you wish to be more independent during your time in Valencia. You will stay in a single or twin room (for students travelling together) in an apartment shared with locals or other international students. Meals can be prepared in the communal, fully equipped kitchen. The lounge area is a great place to hang out with your flatmates. The bathroom is shared and a washing machine is available, and the apartments are all located in central Valencia.

Dive into Valencia’s culture with the school’s excellent activities programme. You will be welcomed with a traditional Paella Party on Tuesday evening, which is a great opportunity to get to know the other participants. Enjoy a guided tour of the city, cooking class with the great Chef Nando, cultural lessons, a book club and loads of social/cultural evening activities in which school staff and teachers are always involved. Once a week, the school also organises a language exchange with university Spanish students that is super popular in the city! Every weekend, you can enjoy a special activity such as a day trip to Madrid or Barcelona, excursions to nearby cities like Xàtiva or Peñíscola and visits to small town festivals, gorgeous beaches, sporting events, etc. Take advantage of the numerous options on offer to discover this beautiful region!
