In August 2017, I went to Barcelona for a three-week Spanish course (20 hours a week), the trip was just great!
Firstly, I want to thank the Linguatrip team for professional and fast work, you are great fellows, i can see that you love what you do, answered all my questions, which even do not always directly belong to your competence. I wish your company further growth and improvement, if you still want to learn languages abroad, then only with your service - good price, nice and ready to help managers, it was nice to interact with you!
Spanish before that I learned myself, and it was nice to get to not elementary level. Generally speaking, the school is kind and ready to help. Another thing was that we were actually taught, explained the grammar, gave tasks, and they checked it, it was serious.
Each week a table of events for students was posted, for some I went, when there were no other plans, it was a perfect opportunity to spent time with other students and to spend time well, and sometimes even to do something useful. For example, on my arrival the Festival de Gracia was held, and we helped the local to block the street for a holiday, it was memorable.
I lived in a family, or rather a woman who did not speak neither English nor, especially, Russian. It was a big plus for me. She was also very cheerful, cooked me delicious food, and every evening after dinner we talked about 1.5-2 hours. We had very warm relationships, i did not want to leave! Housing was located in 25 min. walk from the college, but I like to walk, so it was absolutely not a problem. In general, in my area (pl. Universitet) everything was relatively close - on the beach I went on foot, to La Ramble on foot, on pl. Catalonia and the Gothic Quarter also. In Barcelona, there are so many things to do and see , so I wanted to have time to see as much as possible before leaving, but, of course, this is not real for 3 weeks.
In general, I'm delighted with this wonderful country, people and study. One small minus - small rooms, to the toilet in the school if you go in with a backpack, then it's hard to close the door. But this entire compact Europa is now remembered with a smile and can not obscure the positive emotions and new impressions that I received. Still many thanks for your work!
