How do I find the right Language School?

To learn a language it is important to find the right surrounding. The best is to look for a School in the country of the target language, because it is easier to learn a language when you are in that country and apply what you have learned. Of course there are also Language Schools in the own Country. You just need to know what is best for you. Therefore you need to think about a couple of things:

To learn a language it is important to find the right surrounding. The best is to look for a School in the country of the target language, because it is easier to learn a language when you are in that country and apply what you have learned. Of course there are also Language Schools in the own Country. You just need to know what is best for you. Therefore you need to think about a couple of things:

Do I want to go abroad or stay in the own country? If I want to go abroad, how long do I want to stay and where will I live? There are schools who offer different kinds of accommodation, for example Host-Families, student residences and apartments. For Students, who set their focus on learning the language very good and fast, a host-family would be the best option, because beside the language you will also learn something about the culture and the daily life. Students who prefer to live together with others should live in an apartment or a student residence. The question about the flat leads to another question: How much does the accommodation costs?? The money is mostly a big issue and a very important aspect. It is necessary to know how much a language course costs and also the cost-benefit-ratio does matter. What kind of activities and further offers can I find at the school and is that an important aspect for me? Many schools offer excursions, visits to museum or other places of interest, visits to a cinema or other activities. Are the activities included in the price or do I have to pay for them extra? Do I want to go to a big language school or a small, familiar one? Do I prefer renowned and famous schools with recognitions and decorations or do I just want to do a normal language course? Of course it is necessary to know where the school is located. Do I get a certificate after the course? Is there a possibility to get a language certificate like the DELE or ELE test? How much does it cost and how comprehensive is the preparation for the test? Also it could be good to know if the school has a lot of students from my own country, because after all you want to learn another language and do not want to talk in your mother tongue for the whole stay. There are different kinds of schools; some specialize in grammar and other set their focus on communication and conversation. The best way to find the right School is to compare different Schools and then decide which one suit you best…As well we would like to emphasize that it’s not important to go to the cities more known through the Medias. For example: Barcelona, Sevilla, Granada, Malaga, Madrid.

It could also be interesting for you to know that the Spanish people almost never go to Barcelona or other famous cities as a tourist, also the chance to be robbed increased more and more.

In general it is that you should choose a language school which is situated in a smaller city where you can do more things than learning Spanish, that means where are for example beaches and also mountains. Can be Instituto Hemingway one of these top Schools? It is on your fingers.
