MI sono trovata benissimo riguardo la famiglia che mi ospitava: simpatica la proprietaria, molto comoda e spaziosa la stanza e soprattutto ideale la posizione nell'Eixample. Ho adorato davvero il quartiere e la localizzazione.Riguardo la scuola don Quijote, i due insegnanti della mattina erano bravissimi: Ivàn e Chelo. Si bilanciavano, erano preparati e sapevano tener viva l'attenzione. Davvero bravi.Una nota negativa devo darla alla scuola per l'organizzazione: ho frequentato un corso intensivo di 6 ore giornaliere con SOLO 20 minuti di pausa tra le prima due lezioni. Non è stata prevista nemmeno una mezz'ora di pausa prima o durante le 2 ore di conversazione. Scandaloso! Troppo faticoso. Rieto che gli insegnanti avuti erano davvero molto bravi e partecipativi. Esperienza divertente. Le ore di conversazone invece troppo ripetitive.

Don Quijote, Barcelona
Duration: 2 weeks

A language stay is a combination of training, new experiences, holiday, fun and contact with international students! I chose to go to Barcelona for 2 weeks because it’s a very lively city where you can find parties, shopping, beaches and culture. And also because ESL gave me good advice and I felt confortable with them straight away. The WG accommodation is perfect if you want to meet new people easily. The school is modern and teachers are very qualified and motivated. It was a successful trip; I have really good memories and, of course, I made some good progress in Spanish. I started from zero and I went up to the next level during the course! I would recommend this experience to anyone!

Don Quijote, Barcelona
Duration: 14 weeks

My 14 weeks in Barcelona were absolutely amazing! Looking back to that period of my life, I can easily say that it was the best one; I met so many interesting people, coming from different countries and backgrounds. I built some lasting and special friendships with people from all over the world, improved my Spanish, developed my personality, manage to live by myself and found out that I can’t cook… I discovered a new “me”.

Shared apartments
Very popular in Spain, shared apartments offer the chance to live with other international students. Staying in a single room, you will share the living room, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom with your flatmates. Each apartment has a TV and washing machine. This is a great way to make friends from all corners of the planet.

It’s little wonder Barcelona has become one of Europe’s most popular destination cities. From the Olympic Village to the Barri Gòtic, to monuments such as Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia, Barcelona has something for everyone. Whether you want to go bar-hopping in El Raval or catch a football match at Camp Nou, laze on the city beaches or explore the old fishing streets of Barceloneta, it’s all here for you. As well as a superb culinary culture and thrilling nightlife, you can enjoy a huge range of boutiques suitable for all budgets. The school organises a variety of sports, social and cultural activities, as well as excursions at weekends to Figueras, Girona and nearby beaches.
