A wonderful experience to remember for a lifetime long.
Since the first moment of booking my summer intensive Spanish language course online with Expanish Spanish language School, till the last minute this school was simply exceptional.
The booking process was smooth and punctual, they contacted me for the level test to make sure I will be put in the accurate class, they were very helpful and organized through the whole registration process and every single person was taken care of.
Our teacher Eva, was beyond magnificent, my words won't give her justice for her wonderful classes, given from the heart with professionalism and dedication, paying attention to each and every student and his needs, providing us with the highest quality learning and keeping the class ambience very friendly and funny at the same time. I felt that I have become more fluent speaking Spanish after taking this one-week course that was amusing as much as util.
I Highly recommend Expanish Language School for any one who needs to improve his/her Spanish language as it seems to me that they are the best in their field and offering the best information and high quality learning in the shortest time.
Thanks and regards for each and everyone of your team dear staff of Expanish School!!.

My wife and I spent a week in an intermediate level class. Actually less than a week, as we discovered that we had Covid when we arrived in Barcelona from Morocco. Expanish was very welcoming despite our frailties and we really enjoyed our class. Great teacher, nice classmates, excellent facilities in a super location.
