I was 3 months at Escuela Montalbán in Granada doing an Intensive Spanish course, which included 2 classes of grammar and 2 conversation classes per day. I started from the very beginning and improved my Spanish very quickly thanks to a professionalism of the teachers and very well selected groups. In fact, I was able to communicate with other students with the same level of Spanish, which helped us learn Spanish more efficiently with a help of a teacher and have fun as well.

The staff of the Spanish school was extremely friendly and helpful, especially Paco. In the first day they helped me with my accommodation, informed me about different possibilities and important places in the city, and helped me get my debit card in a bank, which was incredibly important as well.

The accommodation was provided by the school. In the apartment I lived with 4 Spanish persons, who helped me boost my Spanish and experience Spanish culture and traditions. They were very friendly, kind and open-minded.

On the one hand, teachers were very professional and provided well-structured content. On another hand, they were very funny making a lot of jokes. Thus, they delivered a great combination of serious and funny content, which helped us feel comfortable and learn Spanish in a great atmosphere.

Another important part of learning Spanish language and culture took place outside of our classes. The school organized different social and cultural activities in the evenings and on weekends. In the first week we went to the Arabic bath, which helped me relieve stress from the first days of my adaptation to a new country. Moreover, I discovered an incredible art-form, which was born in Granada and called Flamenco. The flamenco show included very emotional and expressional music and dance. I fell in love with it and would love to experience it again. Another incredible activity was a tapa tour with the teacher Marisa, when almost all the students went out together to explore the tapas culture in different local bars. There is a tradition in Granada to give tapas for free when you order a drink.

I would definitely recommend this school to everybody, who wants to learn Spanish and discover a great culture of the beautiful Granada and Spain in general.

I was for 4 weeks at Escuela Montalban to follow a level intermediate B2 course. The quality of the lessons is really good since they offer only small classes and teachers are really friendly and knowledgeable! They only speak Spanish to you, therefore, it enforces you to speak and it develops your Spanish!

The atmosphere in the school is great! The school is cozy and the teachers, people that work there are extremely friendly, knowledgeable and warm. But also being able to experience the culture and lifestyle in Granada cannot be underestimated. Therefore, they organize different kind of activities, one of them was a tapa tour through the center of Granada with Ruben!

I definitely want to go back to follow another course, maybe in combination with cooking classes that they offer!

Non scrivo come studente di spagnolo, ma come tirocinante. Sto facendo un tirocinio nella Escuela Montalbán, qui a Granada, e mi sto trovando davvero molto bene. È una scuola di spagnolo con un ambiente familiare che offre corsi di lingua per tutti i livelli.
La Spagna è semplicemente splendida e l’Andalusia, in particolare, ti fa piombare in un’atmosfera da sogno, ti fa immergere nella cultura del Flamenco, ti lascia a bocca aperta coi suoi colori e col suo profumo intenso di fiori e di buon cibo. A proposito di buon cibo … come non menzionare le famose tapas?!?! Davvero squisite! Granada è magnifica, con la sua splendida Alhambra, il quartiere arabo dell’Albaicín e le sue strade piede di vita. È indubbiamente un luogo per tutti i gusti: una città dalla quale non distano molto né la montagna né la spiaggia.
