I’m really happy i made the decision to come and study at Taronja school in Valencia. What had seemed to be a crazy and an impulsive solution of my holidays at the beginning turned into a fantastic experience that exceeded my expectations. Not only i had the perfect holidays, but i also learned the basics of Spanish and this all happened in just two weeks. i got an amazing introduction into the Spanish language, culture and hospitality. I could not speak Spanish at all when i arrived. All the lessons were always perfectly prepared and very well organized. all the teachers are experienced and respectful of the individual students’ needs. I sincerely thank Carmina, Pablo, Josevi, Teresa and Leo! They all are vibrant personalities, great motivators and qualified professional! the groups are of a perfect size so that every student gets a chance to speak, to ask questions. Lessons were always very lively, with the right rhythm that enabled me not only to follow, but also to participate a lot. all the activities like speaking, reading listening and writing are well practiced through e.g. dialogues, games , videos, songs lyrics, role playing and real-life experience such a students’ guided tour around the city with Leo. i also find the extra studying materials on Schoology very useful. i appreciated using the ICT methods and way of studying a lot. They make learning much faster and the lessons more interactive. it is a great way to continue with self studying. Also all the extra-curricular activities i took art in were entertaining and provided a deeper view into the Spanish language and culture, e.g. Paella night or the unique Graffiti tour de Valencia or the outstanding Cooking show on Wednesday. My heartfelt thanks also belong to all the admin staff, the hard-working and always smiling ladies at the reception. they turned my last-minute-adventure in Spain into perfectly organized trip. they helped me a lot with organizing my accommodation even after when i extended my stay for one week. they are extremely competent and simply extraordinary and wish you all the best at your work!
