"It was just an incredible experience and so worth it"

Alexía Eyenga, student from Germany

I was learning Spanish with the Academia el capitán for about 4 weeks and it was definitely worth it! I was able to work on the grammar I was struggling with and really got better in it. I met so many new people from different countries, which was amazing! Everyone is just so kind, funny and chill there!! The lessons were great and always funny, and if you had any questions you could just ask.The school activities were always fun and you could learn something about the canary history , which I really liked. I really did have a great time there and I will definitely book another course there in the near future!! I seriously do recommend it!!

"Small school focus on students in 100%"

Dominika

The school is located on the city center, easily accesable. Classes were adjusted to my level, in small groups and diverted. Teacher was very nice, well organizer and with positive energy. Also, the offer of additional activities was wide, diverted and very interesting letting students to use a language in practice. Contact with school was very good and the atmosphere very warm and welcoming. I strongly recommend the school

"Incredible"

Lars Christian Moen

The teachers at the school were well educated, helpful, scholastic and good at teaching. Every time we had a pause in our classes we went to a cafe in the area and continued speaking spanish. I found this really creative and fun. In addition to normal classes we had out-door classes each Friday, which were fun, and a really helpful and active way to learn. They were also making excursions, among others flamenco and hiking.

The location of the school was very central in Las Palmas. Easy to come buy bus or car. The rooms of the apartments the school rented out was really comfortable, had a good location, and were equipped with whatever you needed.

I'm really happy I got to experience this language school, the people working there and for all i learned. I would highly recommend it.

"Easy going learning!"

Tereza Ritterová

I been thinking quite a while in which school to choose a Spanish course, because is not a cheap investment for someone from center-east Europe. I chose Academia El Capitán and I do not regret my decision! I stay for 2 weeks and enjoy every day a lot, especially because we been a small group and could really do a lot and also thanks to our great teacher Reyes, who been always supportive & bringing so uplifting energy into the class. I especially like that we did not stay with one topic all day and she nicely change activities, so we could stay focus, which is in intensive course not easy task! The school is located very near by San Telmo, which is a biggest bus station easily accessible for everyone in Las Palmas. Even though sometimes the travel in guagua can be a bit adventures :) Facilities been sufficient and also is nice that there been some cultural program behind the "regular" Spanish classes. I would definitely recommend it!

"Excellent spanish course in Las Palmas"

Elin Vaaland

I attended a week's course at Academia El Capitán in November. The teachers and staff are excellent. They do everything they can to make you feel good. The classes are small and it gives you time to practice the language as much as possible. They also organize great activities you can attend if you want to. The location was perfect for me, just walking distance from Vegueta, the old part of Las Palmas.

"Exellent experience"

Susanna Müller

Ich habe die Schule im Januar 2018 besucht.
Es gibt Orte und Zeiten, die man nicht vergisst.
Der Unterricht war sehr gut (Grammatik aufgefrischt, viel Konversation)
Während Ausflügen viel Information über Kultur, Geschichte, aktuelles Leben der Kanaren erhalten.
Unterkunft Nähe Meer / zentral und sehr schön!
Kurz, ich bin begeistert von dieser Schule und ich danke der Leitung (Angel und Monika) und Allen nochmals ganz herzlich!

I visited the school in January 2018. There are places and times you won't forget. The lessons were very good (grammar refreshed, much conversation) . During excursions you will get a lot of information about culture, history, current life of the Canary Islands. Accommodation near sea , central and very beautiful! In short, I am enthusiastic about this school and I would like to thank again the management (Angel and Monika) !

"More than just Spanish lessons"

Bettina Bizien

I immediately registered for a continuing course. Great support, small groups and varied additional program. You learn the language and also a lot about the culture. Parts of the lesson take place "outdoor" in Gran Canaria's life ". A great concept. I took three courses right away.

"Learning Spanish and making new friends!"

Carmen Gonzales

I spent four weeks in Las Palmas to improve my Spanish skills and it was absolutely worthwhile and payed off! Not only did I enhance my Spanish knowledge, but also did I meet wonderful people that I already miss! Anyone who is interested in learning or improving Spanish and making new friends, should definitely choose the courses provided by "Academia El Capitán". The team makes every effort in terms of language enhancement as well as regarding personal issues! I very hope to return to these lovely guys to participate in the course B2!

"A Time In Your Life For A Lifetime Experience"

Ronja Kok

Not only is one improving her/his Spanish skills tremendously thanks to enormously skilled teachers but "El Capitán" also offers a wide variety of cultural programs in order to get to know the country's history, its culture and experience the diversity of the Island. I can only highly recommend spend at least two weeks over there and also staying at their apartments is extremely recommendable.

"Spanish with all senses"

Josef Ettinger

my conclusion after 4 weeks of Spanish course (level A2): anytime again, the school not only does courses like many others. She offers to live in a small community near the beach during the course, taking you right into the heart of the city. Whether you go in the morning to the bakery around the corner, in the supermarket or just the neighbors in the house over the way. Zig small situations to practice the Spanish language skills. This is something else than staying in a pension or hotel, where everyone changes to English as soon as you want to put a few words.

The courses run near the old town of Las Palmas next to a lively pedestrian area with many cafes, where you can enjoy the daily break in nice weather, usually it is nice, together with a cup of coffee, a sweet piece or a sandwich.

My teacher (Reyes) was very attentive, always noticed, and when someone did not understand everything and explained patiently. However, you have to adapt to participants from different countries, is taught Spanish, only for once an English word. But is half as bad as long as the teacher does not pass at the speed of the locals. You can quickly get used to the Spanish language which is never possible at home.

Rounding off the language course through joint ventures such as trips to beautiful places on the island, cinema and theater visit (here it is then literally violent) and eat out in restaurants away from tourism. All this at a proportionate cost to a part of what you have to spend on booked excursions.

Seen in this way, the four course weeks were not just Spanish learning but an unexpectedly varied experience.
