About the school

In the middle of the lively city centre of Malaga, right next to the city cathedral in a beautiful historic building, is Cile language school. From this prime location you are close to the nicest bars, cafes and shops of the city and within ten minutes’ walk of the beach. This gives Cile the perfect learning environment and the best location to get the most out of exploring Malaga. The teachers are one of the school’s major selling points: they all university graduates with a lot of experience giving Spanish lessons. They use fun and interactive learning methods, which not only helps in education, but often lead to positive working relationships between the teachers and students.

The teachers were really amazing! Special thanks to Tamara and Carolina :).
They gave really good tips about Malaga and the culture, and were fun to be in the lesson with, improved the classes a lot.
The lesson material itself could focus more on practical examples in my opinion. For example how to order food in a restaurant instead of talking about food in general. (and depending on your course, pay attention your lesson could start at 8:30!)
For the rest it was perfect.

I spent an amazing time with my husband studying Spanish at CILE. Everything was very well organized and the staff was really helpful. The classes were dynamic and we did a huge progres in Spanish. I can highly recommend the school.
Accommodation was very nice in the city centre, close to school and near to Malaguetta beach. We would like to join again next year.

I spent last month at the Academia CILE with my wife. We had a really great time
and fun. I recently started studying Spanish language and now I can communicate with people in Spanish. The accommodation which we had was very clean and very close to the school. I hope to go again next year and spend lovely time at school.

Worst experience - first staying with host families arranged by Cile was a nightmare: 1st family was chain smoking in the flat, Matthias (Cile’s director) said he didn’t know but I found out weeks later while talking to a new student that she had been placed in the same smoking “host family”. Meantime the school relocated me to a “family” which was just one woman that could only be described as mean and unwelcoming. To top this already bad experience with Cile, Matthias was supposed to refund me an overpayment (don’t pay everything ahead of time is the lesson I learnt here) but he found a way not to, pretty much on the argument that I was “already getting a good deal and was lucky because rents in Malaga were so high” (or so he said) so he would not refund the proper amount (he refunded me 23€ instead of 185€ based on his dodgy calculations which I proved wrong but nonetheless he refused to refund the proper amount… Dishonest.)The classes were near empty (winter) so that was good (though not so great socially), grammar class were good but instead of the conversation classes I’d recommend you go to language exchange events (you can find them in meet up or fb, they’re free and prob just as useful). Finally, the school is very disorganised, everything (teachers, groups, times) kept changing at the last minute and students were the last to know… Quite an experience, but not a good one for me.

I studied at Academia CILE in Malaga for 3 months in total between January and May 2018. I started at level A1 and was at level B1 when I left after 3 months of study. I will say that my 3 months of study made me able to use Spanish whenever I am in Spain now. However, learning Spanish is not a sprint, but more like a marathon. I returned for 1 week this year to see if I had maintained what I had learned and maybe if I had improved anything. I was not disappointed this time either, I had a great week and went out with some of the teachers for some beers, a great way of learning Spanish.

The reason for selecting CILE to learn Spanish was primarily the price and location. The school is located next to the cathedral and close to the beach, Malagueta. I chose the Super Intensive course II which gives you 20 group lessons and 10 private lessons per week (a lesson is 45 minutes). I can absolutely recommend you to take this course because having private lessons is really effective for you learning. It's up to you how you want to use your private lessons, so I changed my private lessons as I progressed in my learning and my needs changed.

The teachers, other staff and the owner of the school are all really nice. I went out with other students and several of the teachers many times during my stay at the school. I will recommend you to try to socialize with the local people and maybe use less time on homework if you have to prioritize. I used some of my private lessons to do homework, because then I could explain to my teacher how I was resonating and get feedback on what was correct or not.

I had different teachers during my stay at CILE, which I think is a good thing. Each teacher is different than the others, but all the teachers at CILE are great teachers and nice persons.

I can absolutely recommend CILE as your school for learning spanish. Just remember to have a positive attitude, make sure you have fun while learning spanish and don't be afraid of practicing it in the local community of Malaga.

I will keep going back to Malaga and CILE in the future too!

This schools offers much more than what I can expected.
I had the most wonderful experience to learn Spanish here. Teachers are professional and helpful. I have studied here for two months and when I spoke with local people they are all amazed how I can communicate with them.
School provides so much flexibility to my course selection based on my level and my need. Also their price is so reasonable compare to other big institution where you have less chance to practice conversation in the class and you have to much more.

One small bonus from this school is I get to taste the best Spanish coffee just down stairs by paying just 1 Euro by being a student of CILE. :)

Overall, I highly recommend this school for all levels of students if you would like to improve your Spanish in short time and experience the beauty of Malaga! I will come back for sure!
