About the school

CastiLa was founded in 1988 by a group of Spanish teachers who felt a true passion and enthusiasm for their language and culture. Castila is located in the Albaicin district, an Arab district in the center of Granada overlooking the Alhambra. The area is characterized by an abundance of greenery, narrow car-free streets, graceful fountains and traditional white-painted houses. CastiLa is located in a white, traditional house with beautiful gardens. The school is medium in size, and classes have a maximum group size of 6 students, which keeps the lessons intimate. This means that staff are able to dedicate more time to each student. The school is Cervantes accredited and the teachers are professionally trained, so the quality of the lessons is guaranteed.

Granada

This typical Andalusian town situated at the foot of the mountains has something magical. If you point your nose to the North, you will see the snowy peaks of the Sierra Nevada, while the sun warms the hilly city behind you and turns orange. The Moorish influences in Granada are not to be missed thanks to the Arab buildings and hundreds of castles, culminating in the magical palace complex Alhambra. Granada is the perfect mix between a bustling city with bars and flamenco dance clubs, overwhelming nature, and a fairy tale Arab culture.

Their website had weak information or insufficient English explanation so I contact them.

Their contact team had no idea how to communicate what their teaching program is or even explain it.

Better look for ones with self explanatory websites

Best of luck

This lovely school is without a doubt the best place to learn Spanish. It does not matter if you have no knowledge of the Spanish language or if you are more advanced. I started from the very beginning and got to a very decent level in a short period of time. I can definitely recommend these guys!

I had an amazing time at Castila. The teachers are really professional and there was always a cohesiveness to the lessons after each change of teacher throughout the day and an identifiable thread either in regard to the topic or grammar point. I liked experiencing the different personalities and techniques of the teachers and always found them very amiable and fun. The afternoon activities are a great way to practice your Spanish and meet new people and also to get to know the beautiful city. The accommodation is also lovely and very central. I would recommend Castila to anyone wanting to improve their Spanish and also have a fantastic cultural experience they will never forget.
