Spanish Courses in Escuela Montalban-Granada

I had many different classes for learning different languages previously, but my experience in Escuela Montalban-Granada was totally different and much more efficient than the other ones. They have a very different strategy to teach Spanish which is very useful to learn really much thing in a short time. What I most like about this school is; they are not only a Spanish course, but also they are taking care of all your problems and necessities. For example you can leave at your home all the stress of booking a hotel/hostel, arranging a transfer from your airport etc.. or if you would like to have a guided city tour in Granada, trekking, ridding Andalucian horses, dive in Cabo de Gata, see a Flamenco show or whatever, they arrange all for you! So that you can just concentrate to learn the language and have fun in your times in Granada. I think that is one of the most important values of Escuela Montalban-Granada.

I felt totally comfortable in the course and learnt really huge amount of Spanish in a short time. Honestly all the professors, managers and workers are very friendly. You need to be here to understand what i would like to say. You will not want to turn back to your country :)

One more thing! I felt something here, that all the students are willing to learn this language. I havent seen untill now any person who is bored of the classes. I dont know why but everyone wants more homeworks :) This school is magical i guess :) Seriously, if you really want to learn Spanish and Spanish lifestyle, in my opinion there can not be a better place than here. I would definitely recommend Escuela Montalban-Granada to anyone who is looking forward to learn or improve their Spanish.

I've already been to some Spanish schools in Spain, but I've never felt so welcome as in the school Montalbán. In my opinion the great advantage of the Escuela Montalbán in Granada is its size. It is quite a small school, so if you look for personal and individual treatment, it's the perfect option. Concerning classes and progress in learning Spanish, they try to find the perfect level for you and don't mind to open a „new“ level for 3 students. Anyway, mostly there are just about 5 to max. 10 students in each class, which makes every lesson very intensive. Furthermore, all the staff is really nice and open as far as wishes for changes were concerned and I felt that they really cared, if I or others had a problem.You can see in every detail that the owners want to create a nice atmosphere – you will recognise the school as soon as you enter the street for all its plant decoration and in the classrooms there are nice pictures of the city and cultural events.
Studying here you don't only learn Spanish, the qualified teachers (who even manage to make shy people talk) will provide you a hugh range of information about the Spanish culture, even more if you take part in the extra activities in the afternoon, which I highly recommend!!! And there are so many options!!! You can go to the impressive Sierra Nevada for a long walk or for skying, depending on the season, you can see a lot of dance festivals and even take classes at school by Carina and „William“ - they were so patient with us!!! - and don't miss the arabic baths to relax enjoying a massage. Really, it's impossible to be bored in Granada! Even the beach is just about 50km away and there are buses with a good frequency... So, what are you waiting for? :-)

Merhaba Arkadaşlar!

Ben Ispanya´nin güneyinde „Girnata“ adiylada bilinen Granada şehrindeki „Escuela Montalbán“ dil okulunda 3 aylik bir staj yaptim. Hem şehrin kendisine, hemde ordaki yaşam tarzina hayran kaldim.

Endülüs tarzindaki hoş bir avluya sahip olan okulda, bilgili ve neşeli öğretmenler sayesinde, stajim çok eğlenceli ve rahat geçti. Bu okul yaklaşik 20 senedir yabanci öğrencilere ispanyolca kurslari vermekte. Buradaki kurslarda, ispanyolcayi daha çabuk ve verimli bir şekilde öğreniyorsunuz. Ayrica farkli ülkelerden gelen öğrenciler sayesindede ingilizcenizi bile geliştirme ve yeni arkadaşlar edinme şansiniz var. Kursda öğrenmiş olduğunuz ispanyolcayi, burdaki günlük hayat´da kullanabilmek, çok faydali oluyor.

Granada şehri çok farkli bir karaktere sahip. Bu şehir en parlak çağını, Müslümanların yönetiminde olduğu 13-15 asırlar arasında yaşamış ve günümüzde caddelerde, arka sokaklarda, binalarda ve anitlarda bu izler hala görülmekte. Hiristiyanlarin görkemli katedralleri ve kiliseleride görmeye değer. Elhamra sarayinin eşsiz bahçeleri, havuzlari ve zarafetide bugünkü zamana adeta meydan okumakta.

Ayrica dünyaca ünlü yazar Federico García Lorca ve Flamenko sanatçisi Enrique Morente gibi bir çok Flamenko şarki ve danscilari bu şehirde doğup büyümüşler. Genelde akşamlari, muhteşem bir atmosferde büyüleyici Flamenko ve müzik şovlarini muhakkak izlemelisiniz . Granada´nin farkli semtlerinde değişik etkinlikler sunulmakta olduğundan, burdaki zamaniniz çok renkli ve macerali geçecektir.

Granada´da her zevke göre bir şeyler bulmak mümkün: kültür, tarih, sanat, eğitim, eğlence, yemek, müzik vs.

Bu staj benim için unutulmaz bir tecrübe idi ver herkese buraya gelip bu güzelikleri yaşamanizi tavsiye ediyorum!!!

Muchos saludos!

Mam na imię Sylwia i w ciągu miesiąca uczestniczyłam w kursie języka hiszpańskiego w szkole Montalbán. Moja podróż językowa okazała się być świetnym doświadczeniem i bez wahania mogę polecić tą szkołę :)

Co więcej, Granada jest miastem naprawdę różnorodnym i z pewnością przyciągnie tych, których ciekawi historia muzułmańskiej epoki miasta i jego piękno! To właśnie ten aspekt sprawia, ze Andaluzja aż kipi mieszanką kultur i ma swój wyjątkowy urok!!

Mimo, że zajęcia z języka hiszpańskiego były prowadzone na wysokim poziomie i nieraz trzeba było przyłożyć się do nauki, to zawsze pozostawało trochę czasu wolnego na rozrywki :) Szkoła oferuje wiele ciekawych programów, ja postanowiłam wybrać się na spektakl Flamenco w ogrodach Generalife, zwiedzić Alhambrę, Sewillę i zarzyć kąpieli w arabskich łazniach, które mogę serdecznie polecić! Pobyt w Granadzie zdecydowanie podniósł mój poziom języka hiszpańskiego, ale był również czasem zawarcia międzynarodowych przyjazni, które mam nadzieję przetrwają lata! W szkole Montalbán miałam okazję poznać wspaniałych ludzi z całego świata, razem uczyliśmy się języka, zwiedzaliśmy Andaluzję i bawiliśmy do białego rana w weekendy!!!

Pozdrawiam wszystkich, których miałam okazję poznać podczas moich wakacji w Hiszpanii i nie Adios, ale Hasta Luego Compañeros!!!!!

Saludos de Polonia!

Studying at the Escuela Montalban has for me been a great experience from both a cultural and linguistic point of view. The classes, always organised in small numbers, are interesting and dynamic, and the teachers always make sure to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere so that it becomes a pleasure to learn Spanish! You also study in a truly international atmosphere with students representing cultures from all over the world, which you discover in addition to the Spanish lifestyle. What I enjoyed most about this school was the staff and the students’ friendliness and openess, which definitely helps to make you feel at home in a foreign country. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone who is looking to improve their Spanish in a friendly environment and keep great memories of Andalusia!
