I am very happy to have booked the Senior Course in Malaga! The course was perfectly designed for all of us, even though we all had different ages. My teacher was great as person, as well as teacher and we learned much more than just Spanish. In the afternoon we could all participate in activities designed especially for us “seniors”. They were very interesting and fun; we enjoyed it a lot!.”
The decision to go the International House in Málaga was the best I could make! Malaga is very beautiful and the school as well. My teacher was very kind and engaged us to participate in class. I really liked that the classes were all mixed, so that you find many different ages in one room. This leads to great discussions and all of that in Spanish! I learned a lot during my stay.”
