Hispalense is an excellent language school, and our family will certainly return in future summers! I enrolled my seven-year-old son in Kids Club for two weeks in July, and he also benefited greatly from an additional private lesson (50 minutes) at the end of most days. The teaching quality was superb, and the staff were very warm and helpful. We chose Hispalense for several reasons, including: the school is Cervantes Institute accredited; it has a long-established Kids Club; and its teachers take the children into town almost every day (after classroom lessons) for immersion in the daily life of Tarifa (in contrast, Spanish-language summer camps in cities typically do this only once per week). The Hispalense teachers accompany the children to markets, historical sights and to places where the kids can do activities with local Spanish children; in this way, Hispalense capitalizes on the fact that Tarifa is a friendly, compact and perfectly safe coastal town (beautifully situated at the point where the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea meet). We absolutely loved the town: Tarifa is charming and atmospheric, energized by young people, and full of great restaurants (not just seafood ones) just a short walk from Hispalense. Tarifa feels very manageable with kids, who will love the clean beaches -- one of which is a two-minute walk from Hispalense. Tarifa is a pleasant bus ride from Seville (which has a direct flight to London Gatwick), and is just across the sea from Morocco (the city center of Tangier is directly linked to Tarifa by FRS ferry). The Hispalense staff are more than happy to advise on excursions to Morocco and on the wide variety of activities on offer in Tarifa. My son's two weeks at Hispalense made for a truly wonderful experience, and we can't wait to go back!

I followed a 2 weeks private Spanish DELE exam preparation course. Absolutely learned a lot, various methods of comprehension were applied and the teacher uses highly advanced didactic skills which made learning easy, fun and rewarding. Would definitely recommend going here! I followed a 2 weeks private Spanish DELE exam preparation course.

An absolutely brilliant experience! Tarifa is a wonderful setting and the instruction was superb. My spanish took off and I obtained a level of fluency that I didn't really expect with only two weeks. I had been studying spanish for years off and on and now realize how much time I had wasted. I should have done this type of school years ago!! An absolutely brilliant experience! Tarifa is a wonderful setting and the instruction was superb.
