Agualivar Spanish School Reviews

Many years ago, I attended a Spanish immersion program in Mexico. In a short period of time, I learned much of that wonderful language. I decided to, once again, participate in an immersion program. What better place to study Spanish than Spain? The many positive reviews received by Agualivar convinced me that this was the perfect place for my wife and me to study. The reviews were correct! The classes were tailored for our individual needs. The all-day use of our learning made it possible to advance beyond our expectations.
Anyone who truly wants to learn Spanish should strongly consider Agualivar. The beauty of the surroundings, the superb food, and the warm family atmosphere are bonuses!

A warm welcome awaits at AGUALIVAR . Two hard working and very patient teachers provide a positive learning experience . The classroom work combined with the cultural visits and family life give you a total immersion in Spanish culture. The accommodation is first class and the view from the house is breathtaking. An uninterrupted view of the Mediterranean. .

The Agualivar Spanish School was exactly what I had hoped for and I can’t recommend it too highly. The welcoming family environment, amazing food and fantastic views made my stay a complete pleasure. In the morning classroom sessions Estefania and Elisabeth worked on my (considerable) difficulties with grammar, reinforcing the information with role play and language games. They also designed the lessons around topics which interested me, and it’s hard not to talk a lot when you are having an interesting discussion. My main aim had been to improve my spoken Spanish and the total immersion course was perfect for that. Like many learners I have had very little opportunity to speak Spanish with native speakers, and I was very nervous about being able to cope in Spanish for a whole week, but I can honestly say I spoke only a handful of words in English during my stay. I spent a day in Malaga after the course, and, when I spoke to receptionists, shopkeepers, waiters etc. in Spanish, for the first time ever they didn’t immediately switch to English - what’s more, I was able to understand their replies!
A very pleasant and productive week!

Having only dabbled in Spanish in the nine years since I last studied it, I chose to go to Agualivar for a week to get up to speed ahead of taking regular lessons back home. I'm very glad I did. The teaching is really, really, really good. Your weaknesses and development areas are identified before you arrive and they are addressed using the topics that interest you and the vocabulary associated with them - it is a really effective way to learn. The techniques that the Eli and Fani use are really fun and engaging. The fact that you are living with a Spanish family, eating Spanish food, watching Spanish TV and listening to Spanish music means that you never really stop learning even when it doesn't feel like it. The immersion is so total that you will find yourself speaking Spanish sometimes without thinking about it. On the flight home I started chatting to the (very clearly English) air steward in Spanish, much to his bewilderment, before I realised what I was doing. Since I've been back my wife has fairly regularly had to remind me that she doesn't speak Spanish and therefore would I mind speaking English to her! The experience gives you a great deal of confidence to use the language naturally in a way that you can't learn in a non Spanish speaking environment. I think it really accelerates your learning, particularly if you have some knowledge before you go.
Aside from the learning aspect, all of the family are great characters, fantastic company and extremely generous and hospitable. The house and accommodation are beautiful, the surroundings are utterly idyllic and the food is sensational. I heartily recommend this experience on all fronts, my only regret is not going for longer!
Superb by any standards!

Truly a fabulous experience! Although I was initially a little intimidated by the idea of immersion in a different language with another family for two weeks, Eli, Fani, Carmen, and Jose were incredibly welcoming and encouraging. The household environment was very enjoyable and everyone had great patience. Morning classes were full of useful language skills as well as in-depth information on culture, heritage, and social issues. There was always time for relaxation after lunch (siesta!) and most days had outings planned.
Along with classes and extra-curricular outings, the house is amazing. Everything is beautiful and well-kept, the rooms are comfortable, the gardens are perfect for winding down, and the view is beyond compare. Overlooking the Mediterranean with almost every meal was an unexpected perk. And the food--all fresh from the adjoining farm and prepared with expertise by Carmen and Fani--was scrumptious!
This school is, without doubt, one of the most personal, heartfelt immersion opportunities available.
