Mr Roberts: 16 week Standard Course
“I expected a more intensive course (in the style of a regular school in England) and for the accommodation to be smaller, but with more Spanish speakers.
The accommodation met my expectations. The lessons were well planned and presented, with a good mix of textbook learning and oral practice.
The Spanish school in Santiago was very pleasant. The staff were very helpful if I had a problem, and the teachers were brilliant.
The best part of the course was being asked to translate for a waiter to a tourist in a café in the central playa!
The other students were really nice. I made some great friends. The activities were fun, but a little repetitive. I would have loved to go on a few more weekend trips.
The main areas of Santiago were fine, with a little petty crime, but generally safe. Going out was fun. The nightlife as good – loads of places to go in different areas, Bodeguero!
My accommodation was fine, I stayed in an apartment.
I only had one query before I left that CESA quickly dealt with. I would recommend the experience to other students!
