« Sehr grosse Fortschritte, da ich mit Grundkenntnissen ankam, jedoch ohne je gesprochen zu haben. Genau daran wurde so ausgiebig und effizient gearbeitet, dass ich im Spanisch die nötige Sicherheit im Sprachgebrauch erwerben konnte. »
School highlights
« Gute Kontakte, Offenheit und vor allem mitten in der Sprache, wo immer man sich aufhält »

« Es ist ratsam, nicht ganz ohne Vorkenntnisse in einen solchen Kurs zu gehen, aus meiner Sicht ist der Profit aufbauend auf einfachen Grundkenntnissen wesentlich grösser »

Die Sprachschule Malaca Instituto ist top. Nicht nur die Schule selber, sondern auch die Lage in einem sehr schönen sympathischen Quartier, 10 Min. vom Strand entfernt.Die Stadt selber hat auch schöne alte Quartiere und einzelne Häuser, - aber die Stadt an sich gehört nicht zu den schönsten. In früheren Jahren wurden viele Bausünden begangen: schreckliche Hochhäuser wurden irgendwo hingestellt völlig ohne Konzept. Es gibt definitiv schönere Städte in Spanien. Die meisten sehr gute Lehrer. Etwas viel Wechsel. Nehmen Anliegen der Studenten sehr ernst. Sind sehr flexibel und gehen auf Wünsche ein, z.B. geben sie Zusatzblätter zum Üben, wenn das Bedürfnis da ist. Auch schauen sie etwas auf das Alter und die Zusammensetzung der Klassen. Die ersten 2 Wochen war ich im 50+ Programm. Alter:jüngste 55, älteste Studentin 75in der 3. Woche war ich im "normalen" resp. Intensiv-Programm. Dann war der Durschnitt etwas tiefer: von 45 an aufwärts bis 68. In dieser Klasse waren von 6 Pers. 4 Nationen vertreten. Manchmal ist Zeit etwas knapp berechnet, wenn man ein Angebot in der Stadt z.B. Museumsbesuch mitmachen will und nachher noch etwas anderes an der Schule.Meist wurde Transport von Schule organisiert. Da man sich nicht im voraus anmelden musste (ausser für längere Ausflüge) war man oft mit zu grossem Bus unterwegs. (nicht grad umweltfreundlich....

« Ja, Fortschritt gemacht, da ich fast den ganzen Tag nur Spanisch hörte und auch meistens sprach. Die meisten Leute in meiner 1. Klasse konnte kein Deutsch. Ernsthaft gearbeitet und mehr als gefordert Hausaufgaben gemacht. Oft Kontakt gesucht zu Leuten, die NICHT Deutsch sprachen. »
School highlights
« - Grösse hat viel Positives: man kann flexibler auf Zusammenstellung der Klassen achten und vielfältigere Angebote machen für das Freizeitprogramm.- gehen sehr auf die Wünsche des jeweiligen Studenten ein. Klassenwechseln möglich bei nicht perfekter Einstufung.- meist sehr kompetente Lehrpersonen »

Der Sprachaufenthalt im Malaca Institut in Malaga hat mir sehr gut gefallen. Der Unterricht war abwechslungsreich und die Lehrpersonen (4 verschiedene mit fliegendem Wechsel) weitgehend kompetent, ebenso die gebotenen Aktivitäten. Mir gefällt Andalusien, speziell die Küstenregion. Ich war sehr zufrieden. Ich war in der MasterKlass II eingestuft, ohne AbschlussprüfungFür mich hat diese Einstufung ca. A2 gestimmt, denn ich wollte eher repetieren und festigen, Konversation und den Wortschatz erweitern. Ich hatte ein Einzelzimmer im Malaca-Institut gebucht und war überrascht, wie klein diese Einzelzimmer sind mit einem 1/4 Balkon. Für junge Studierende ist dies sicher kein Problem, aber das nächste Mal würde ich mich für ein grösseresZimmer entscheiden.
