About the school

In an idyllic whitewashed Andalusian house five minutes’ walk from the beach and amidst green surroundings, sits Debla language school. At first glance you would not believe that the school is in a city with over 500,000 inhabitants, yet within ten minutes walk you are in the city centre. Do you like beautiful views? If you sit on one of the terraces in the garden of the school - you can endlessly peer over the Mediterranean Sea. The school is family-run, meaning that teachers have a personal and individual approach to students.. The building is modern, using the latest education technology, there is free WiFi throughout, and classrooms have plenty of natural light.

Ik heb 10 weken Spaans geleerd bij Debla Cursos de Español in Málaga en mijn ervaringen waren echt geweldig! De school is heel positief. Kleinschalig met veel persoonlijke begeleiding. Ik verbleef in de residentie van de school en deze was ook top. Met 0 kennis Spaans kwam ik aan in Málaga en na 10 weken ben ik vertrokken met niveau B2. Ontzettend toffe tijd gehad, veel geleerd en vrienden voor het leven gemaakt. Hasta pronto Málaga!

Een zeer prettige ervaring om Spaans te leren in een leuke familiaire omgeving. Twee weken Spaans gevolgd wat in het begin wel snel ging en even wennen was voor iemand van 57. Maar de leerkrachten waren geduldig, vriendelijk en zeer prettig. Het is een kleine school met goed gemotiveerd personeel wat altijd klaar stond. Ik denk er over om in april/mei weer terug te gaan voor een vervolg van de cursus.
Je kan iedere week op ieder niveau instromen. Maandags is er een test die aangeeft welk niveau je in wordt ingedeeld. Ook de aktiviteiten geven een goede variatie in de week. Gewoon TOP dus. Ik ben zeer tevreden.

I've just spent a hugely enjoyable week at Debla, having signed up for the over-50s course. For anyone seeking high-quality tuition in a fun, pressure-free atmosphere, it's a great place to study.

On this occasion, the older students were allocated to classes related to their language level (so they joined younger students for lessons), but came together for cultural activities.

I have done several classes at other schools in the past, including two in Málaga, and this was easily the most enjoyable and useful experience I have had.

Lessons at those other schools were slightly intimidating, which knocked my confidence a little. But there was no such problem at Debla. I found the tutors to be not only talented and professional, but huge fun too. It was education with a smile, and there was always a really positive, happy and friendly atmosphere, which helped me to seize the opportunity to learn.

There was a great mix of language and culture, and I and my group of student friends took part in everything that was on offer. We also spoke Spanish all the time, in and out of class. At the end of the week, two or three people said to me how they felt their Spanish had improved by throwing themselves into the experience in this way.

I was delighted to come away from the week with my knowledge of the subjunctive in particular much enhanced, and with great memories of excellent tutors and lovely students.

Debla is a special place and I will definitely be back in the future. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Traveling alone to Spain from the US, our 16yr old twins had a wonderful time at Debla Language School in Malaga. They learned much in their limited time, felt safe in the community and enjoyed the teaching staff and methods tremendously. We received ample information in advance, safe travel to and from the airport and great communication from the school while the kids were in the program. Unfortunately for us, both kids contracted Covid while abroad but even then, the school was responsive to our questions and concerns and made adjustments to support the kids. We would highly recommend and our kids would love to return for another session.

I had an amazing time in Debla. I`ve learned a lot, because the teachers were incredible. The teaching program, inc. all the materials seems to me very good as well. I did not even expect that I could have such a good experience - in the school is very friendly atmosphere and everybody was very nice to me - whenever I asked for some help (even if it was not part of the teaching program) everyone tried to help me. I really think you can not choose the better school than this one. Very grateful for this opportunity.

Admittedly my experience here was not great. I joined the beginner class which had already been in sessions for two weeks. None of the teachers spoke any English which admittedly, I understand the concept of but for people that don’t know any Spanish it makes things very difficult especially from a grammatical perspective. Further, during those weeks it appeared that the school was entertaining an exchange from certain countries which made it difficult for the individuals (as there were few). As such, there wasn’t as much of a social element to the school that week which I came to learn was different from talking to other people that went to other schools. I ended up taking private lessons, specializing in conversational Spanish with teachers that went to university for this who could speak both Spanish and English at a fraction of the cost in South America. I would recommend going this route if you can.

I only had one week of super intensive Spanish with Deba, but they really accelerated my Spanish capabilities. I absolutely loved having Antonio Jose "Tony" for my teacher (his teaching skills were equaled by his massive level of energy & humour), and meeting Amaya (who's super friendly & quirky), and Olga (who's really helpful with all my questions & requests). The school is housed in a large beautiful sunlit building with so much space inside as well as outside: the terraces and yard are all overlooking the gorgeous city. It's close to so much: beaches, restaurants, and walking distance to the city centre. There were not so many students (since we were among the first to join in person), but the level of attentiveness to health and sanitation is extremely high - I felt very safe there. I was hesitant choosing a school in Malaga, but I'm so happy to have gone with Debla - you feel so happy in that place, while learning lots (and yes, I know I should have written this in Spanish, but this is for all you other non-Spanish people) :) I'll go back again for sure!
