Una escuela muy buena!

J'ai passé à l'école deux semaines en juillet cette année, l'histoire d'améliorer mon espagnol, et au final j'ai regretté que j'avais pas la pris au moins trois semaines! Le cours est tellement intensif et efficace, que déjà le deuxième jour je me sentais plus à l'aise pour parler espagnol!
Les profs sont très professionnels et ils font tout pour te faire avancer. En deux semaines à Malaga j'ai appris plus que j'avais appris en 9 mois à Paris.
Ça s'est passé super vite, j'ai que des bons souvenirs, j'ai des nouveaux amis de pays différents et j'ai le bon résultat - je parle et je comprends suffisamment bien espagnol (alors que je suis venue là bas avec le niveau A1...). Je vous conseille sincèrement cette école, vous aurez sûrement le bon résultat et vous passerez des bons moments!

Alhambra Instituto

I only spent 1 week at the Alhambra Instituto in Jan 2015 but hope/plan to return for a longer stay. I've been to another language school elsewhere in Spain and the Alhambra Instituto was much , much better -- in a different league!
What I particularly appreciated was the careful explanation from the teachers whenever something wasn't clear; and the emphasis on speaking Spanish.
Being there for only 5 days, and in Winter, meant that I wasn't able to take part in many extracurricular activities which is why I haven't marked this highly but the programme of activities for those staying longer looked good!

I love this school!

I was in this school for 4 weeks and I’ve had an amazing time here. It already started being awesome since the first day I got there in Alhambra Instituto. The teacher I first had is called Fran. He was very nice and good at explaining everything. He doesn’t speak too fast and he says the words very clear. That way we could easily understand everything. And if there is a new word we didn’t learned yet he tried his best explaining the meaning of that word. Also the way he teachs is very good. He keeps it alive, funny. We didn’t always have the same teacher. Sometimes, for example, we also got a teacher called Andrés. Andrés is also an amazing teacher. Mostly when we went away on excursions to museas or other places Andrés was the person who lead them. He could do that very good. He told everything about what there is in the musea or place we went to. About what there is to see in the Cathedral. The history of a certain thing, he knew everything. Also in class he was a great teacher. He teached us many different past times and explained exactly when you should be using this times. The classes were not that big. Every week it is different how many people are in your class. Sometimes you sit with 4 other students. Other times with 2 or 3.The other students were always very kind. Malaga is also a very nice place to learn Spanish. I would have given this school 100000 stars if it was possible. Too bad I only can give 5.

Mejor escuela del mundo!

Estuve en Alhambra Instituto Internacional el verano pasado y me gustó mucho! Los profesores explican muy bien, muy claro, siempre cuando hay cualquier duda o pregunta, están dispuestos para ayudar y están interesados en mejorar el nivel de cada uno! La escuela ofrece una amplia variedad de las actividades, así que no te aburras en Málaga! Disfruté de las actividades y de la compañía de mis nuevos amigos, la escuela recibe los estudiantes de todo el mundo, por eso hay una buena oportunidad de cambiarse de las culturas o pasar tiempo con los profes en paella party o en Safari tapas es súper guay! Así combinas tus estudios con la práctica de la idioma!
Las chicas en la recepción, muchas gracias por ser tan amables y por su ayuda en cuanto tuve los problemas! Dominika es súper buena y hace todo para su clientes! Quería agradecer a todo el equipo de Alhambra, los cursos me sirvieron útiles en acabar mi carrera con notas excelentes! Os echo de menos muchísimo! Saludos de Moscú ;)

Great school!

Together with my daughter I studied Spanish at Alhambra Instituto for four weeks. I have had an incredible time. The teachers are wonderful, I felt at home immediately. I have learned a lot of Spanish. The school is very well located and Málaga is a wonderful city. We will soon return because we miss the school and the city very much!
