Great experience. If you plan to take Flamenco Lessons, consider taking the half intensive Spanish. If no dance, go for the whole intensive. Plan to study.

I absolutely loved it. I took Spanish classes, and all the teachers were so friendly, they taught me a lot, I was able to give input myself, and so we talked about a lot of interesting topics. The location of the school (in Albayzín) is fantastic, with an amazing great view of Granada. Also loved the house that I shared... More

I wanted to have a hands on experience of teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language. I was able to work with colleagues from the Carmen de Las Cuevas School and had a great experience. I achieved my objective and also had the opportunity to enjoy the cultural activities organized by the school. I greatly recommend it.

I've taken flamenco dance classes at this school from all of the teachers. They are all excellent, at every level. The administration is well organized and the classes and student residences are a good value. Students often return to the school year after year. The school is located in an uncongested area where it is comfortable to live.

Accomodation is perfectly adecuate. The personell in the office is helpful and it makes just about everything so much easier for a visitor.
