Excellent Exciting Extraordinary Expanish!!!
I'm the academic manager at Discover English, a high quality English language school in Melbourne, Australia, so I feel pretty well qualified to provide an assessment of Expanish. And I absolutely loved my experience there!
The school has a great atmosphere due to the lovely, genuine, helpful staff. Reception is always ready with a smile to assist you in whichever way you need, the admin staff make the enrolment process a piece of cake and give an awesome orientation, both to Expanish and BA. The teachers go to every effort to make the classes interesting, motivating, easy to understand and will always give you extra help in the breaks and after class. Gabriel, the academic manager, makes it his business to know every student who is attending and ensures they are happy and getting the most out of their study experience.
The school fosters a holistic Spanish-learning experience by providing a range of excellent extra curricula activities lead by the teachers, such as excursions to places in BA eg La Boca, tango lessons, mate drinking, nights out and much more. These activities are a great way to practise your Spanish in a less structured environment, to make friends with students from other classes and to get exposure to the culture of BA.
The school is in a great central location and facilities themselves are excellent. It has well-sized classrooms filled with natural light, a lovely big colourful common area, computers to use and nice clean bathrooms and tearoom. There is lots of information on the notice boards about things to do in BA as well as the school's own activities, and coffee, snacks and water available.
The learning materials provided in class are comprehensive and extremely useful.
The school also generously provides extra classes the day after a public holiday.
May is a wise time to visit as it's low season and classes are very small, meaning you get to know your classmates very well, have lots of opportunity to speak in class and get a great deal of attention from your teachers.
Last but not least, the people you meet at Expanish are terrific. They are all genuinely there to learn Spanish and have a good time. And there is a nice age range so older learners like me don't feel awkward.
I had such a fantastic time Expanish...I couldn't recommend it more highly!!
