Lage super.Das Zimmer war leider nicht abschließbar.Das WLAN war defekt und erst zwei Tage vor der Abreise (von insgesamt 2 Wochen) funktionstüchtig.Die Gemeinschaftsräume, besonders die Küche, waren leider nicht sehr sauber. Die Ausstattung der Küche war nicht ausreichend. Ohne Nutzung der Küche für zwei Wochen ausreichend, länger würde ich diese Unterkunft jedoch nicht nutzen wollen.Empfehlung mit Einschränkungen und nur für eine kurze Aufenthaltsdauer von etwa zwei Wochen!

« Ja, sehr! Dank sehr intensivem Unterricht bei unterschiedlichen Lehrpersonen und da ich auch in meiner Freizeit ausschließlich Spanisch gesprochen habe. Dadurch war ein Eintauchen in die Sprache auch in der nur kurzen Zeit von zwei Wochen sehr gut möglich. Unvergleichlich mit einem Sprachkurs im Heimatland. »
School highlights
« Verschiedene Lehrkräfte, unterschiedliche Klassenzusammensetzungen über den Tag verteilt. Engagierte Lehrpersonen, die sehr gerne auch Tipps zu Sehenswürdigkeiten, dem Leben in der Stadt und im Land allgemein geben. Gute Betreuung.Auch nachmittags Angebot verschiedener Aktivitäten. »

Don Quichote war insgesamt super, die Räumlichkeiten, das Kurskonzept (Mischung verschiedener Lernformen) und das Lehrpersonal im Großen und Ganzen auch. Mir persönlich haben die 5 Tage sehr gedient vieles zu wiederholen, worin ich noch unsicher war und - vor allem - viel zu sprechen. Sehr gefallen hat mir die Mischung von Teilnehmer*innen unterschiedlichen Alters und Nationalität. Das Alter meiner Mitstudierenden lag zwischen 18 und 69, Menschen von Brasilien bis Südkorea/New Zeeland und Schweden bis Israel... Die Unterrichtsmaterialien und Medien waren modern und hilfreich. In Salamanca habe ich mich auch bei Singlespaziergängen sehr wohl und sicher gefühlt. Die Salamantinos und Salamnatinas waren bei Bedarf sehr hilfsbereit, die Don Quichote Mitarbeiter*innen auch sehr!!! Super und ein sehr schönes Gebäude! Wunderbar war auch die direkte Anbindung an das Don Quichote-CafE mit sehr leckeren Tapas und anderen Gerichten und supernettem Personal.

« Ja, Wiederholung von Gelerntem, aber wieder Vergessenem gut; die Möglichkeit, den ganzen Tag Spanisch zu sprechen in Schule und sonstigem Alltag kombiniert mit Nachfragemöglichkeit bei den Lehrenden war super! »

Don Quijote, Salamanca 
Duration: 3 months

Salamanca is packed with students and therefore very lively. This makes for a unique, very friendly atmosphere. You get to meet new people very quickly. In Salamanca, everything is at walking distance, which is very pleasant. At the Don Quijote language school, Spanish is taught by very friendly and dedicated teachers. Alongside grammar, they teach us about Spanish specificities and customs. I really enjoyed my three-month language course there!

From the very first moments, this Spanish student town fascinated me. The architecture – which is beautiful by night and by day – as well as the very varied nightlife, conquered me. In Salamanca, one can feel the typically Spanish mentality, tapas and sangria being part of it. All the attractions are nearby and the accommodations are at the most 15 minutes away from the breathtakingly beautiful old town and from the school, which is convenient. I am very pleased to have chosen the Don Quijote School, the teachers are very motivated, very helpful, nice, and they always have an anecdote from their daily life to tell us. In the school building itself there is a café, where you can eat something between two classes or chat with the other students. The interior patio is also a place where students gather and discuss. All in all, I fully enjoyed my stay in Salamanca and I would do another stay at Don Quijote without hesitation.

Don Quijote, Salamanca
Duration: 16 weeks

Here are a few reasons why I am very happy with my language study stay in Spain. First of all, Salamanca is really beautiful. There is a host of small museums and historical buildings to discover. It is not a big city but the atmosphere is warm and the nightlife is very lively thanks to the large number of students. Due to its small size, you don’t even have to use the bus to get around the city centre.

The school is located in an old convent (with a beautiful architecture), which is close to the town centre (5 minutes’ walk to Plaza Major). As regards the school’s teachers and staff, I find them very friendly and always available. I would also like to say that the administrative team fix both small and big issues very quickly.

Finally, I am satisfied with the apartment I share with other foreign students. Not only does it allow me to be independent (as regards meals, for instance), but I also get to know other students and to practise my Spanish with them.

Host family
Selected with the greatest care by our partner school, the host families represent an ideal environment for learning Spanish in authentic cultural immersion. Staying with a host family, you will be in direct contact with the real, everyday life of the country, via the food, culture and language. You will stay in a single room and share breakfast and evening meals with your hosts. This is the best way to improve your language skills outside of class time.

Shared apartment (from 18 years old) Shared apartments are an excellent accommodation option if you are looking for more independence. You will share an apartment with four or five international students from the school. Staying in a single room and sharing the kitchen, living room and bathroom, you will meet people from all over the world and enjoy a highly social experience. The apartments all have a TV and a washing machine, and common rooms are cleaned once a week.

Residence (from 18 years old)
Located in the heart of Salamanca, a 10-20 minutes’ walk from the school, these residences host international as well as Spanish students. They all offer 20-50 single rooms, free Wi-Fi, free computers and many shared bathrooms (ensuite rooms are available at an extra cost). There is no kitchen onsite (only fridges), but there are many restaurants surrounding the residence.

Discover Salamanca and its surroundings through the exciting range of activities arranged by the school. As well as visiting the museums and monuments that reflect the city’s grand past, you can simply explore the sunny streets and charming plazas that surround the school at your own pace. As an important university city, Salamanca has been a magnet for students for centuries – this means there are plenty of affordable and friendly places to eat and drink throughout the city.
