Julie Washburn

We loved our classes at Expanish! It was one of the highlights of our trip to be able to refine our Spanish skills while being in Spain. I took private lessons with my 3 kids. The teachers and staff were all so kind. They were very understanding when we were running late too!

Avatar of Constanze

Absolutely satisfied. I did my course with Expanish, which is accepted as "Bildungsurlaub" in Germany. Everything was well organized. During the course, I
learned in short time a lot and received valuable recommendations.
Expanish is absolutely recommendable for everyone that wants to learn or improve their Spanish.

Stayed for 9 weeks, it was great. My friend and I were in a host family together and they were amazing. The school itself was really fun and my Spanish improved a lot. It's also a great social experience. Super easy to make friends from loads of different countries at the school.
