Very good school for learning Spanish. Everyone has been very responsive and polite. I am now taking private lessons because the large class environment was not working for me. In the large class environment they speak Spanish only and you do not have the ability to ask and respond like you can in a private lesson. I understand why they teach the classes like that, but for me, it is better one on one with the teacher and it is a good experience.

Great Spanish school, nice casual/relaxed and fun classes, enthusiastic teachers and excellent facilities. The most notable experience for me was *not* looking at the clock wondering when the class would be over! That's a good sign of engaging learning. I've definitely gained lots of confidence in speaking and understanding Spanish.

The spanish school is good.. if you play by their rules

If all you have do is studying Spanish at El Carmen Spanish school - Go for it!
If you have a main hustle - like a real Job (40 hours per week, classic 08:00-17:00) and there will be days that you won't make it in time...Just don't choose El Carmen.

I was working outside of Valencia so it was always a hustle to get there. Also when unpredictable things happened at work that made me stay longer, and I wasn't able to cancel the class anymore (you can only cancel them 24h before), I had to stress myself even more just to appreciate at least a bit of the classes which I spend my money on. Not their fault.. I know. But at my last day of class they didn't allow me to enter the class because i was 47 minutes late. Even though that means there were 73 minutes left to enjoy. The explanation was: that the teacher already started explaining.
I don't see my late arrival causing a HUGE interruption in class. We are all adults and just enter the room silently and sit down, that is how it worked before. The teacher also does not really make an effort to catch people up that are coming late (which is fine by me).

I don't really get why they were that strict. I pay for the class, I am a silent person and don't feel like it is too much to ask to just sit in class and listen.

Besides that I also want to point out that "encouraging" people to speak in class...sometimes felt like "forcing".

Okay, first of all, I NEVER write any reviews. Only for this one I made an exception.
I can only recommend the school El Carmen if you want to learn or/and improve your Spanish. The familiar, warm and welcoming atmosphere will capture you and take any sorts of fear away that you might feel when it comes to learning a language.
I know the team of El Carmen for over 5 years now and they helped me from what is basically considered an A0 level to a C1+ level in Spanish within 1-2 years. At this point, I am able to conduct scientific research in Spanish, which is something that I never thought I could accomplish.
The professors are incredibility talented at what they are doing, and more importantly, they LOVE teaching the language in an interactive, fun manner (there is activities such as city walks, lunches, other get-togethers, etc.).
At one point I could not believe how fast I was making progress.

Elísabeth and her team are wonderful people and they try everything in order to customize the classes according to your needs. If you are looking for a place to learn Spanish, this is the right address for you!

And by the way: the location in the historic center of Valencia is very unique and an absolute plus in my opinion.

El Carmen is an excellent school in which to study Spanish. They are professional, enthusiastic and innovative. I can honestly say Ängela is the best language teacher I have had; in her classes you have plenty of opportunity to speak and ask questions and the lesson is well paced, interesting and relevant.
The price is very good and discounts are available, the more weeks you book, the cheaper it gets. I can´t recommend El Carmen Spanish School highly enough.
