I am totally satisfied with my language experience in Jerez and Tenidiomas. The teachers are very helpful and prepare for lessons properly. I do appreciate my staying with the hosting family and I am really grateful to them for being so careful and sociable.

"Fun, efficient and great teachers"

Sara Davy, student from UK

I had a brilliant time at Tenidiomas Jerez. The school was very efficient, clean and the lessons were fun and thorough. I really like my teachers, in particular Nay and Isobel. The extra curricular trips (to San Lucar and Yoga) we a great addition.

"They were extremely welcoming and offered competent teaching in a very personal atmosphere."

Waltraud Meux, student from Germany

The class was very small, varying from 3 to 6 students. Half of the time I benefited from the one-on-one teaching meathod which was super as the teacher could attend to my personal linguistic needs. The school itself is in the old part of Jerez in an old building, but the classrooms were very modern and quite fashionable with up-to-date teaching facilities. My teacher was young, competent, likable and very dedicated to the job. I did not book housing. There were not any social activities available. All in all it was a very positive experience.

"It was inspiring and demanding, but I always felt supported and never overwhelmed."

Judith Elbert

The location is wonderful right in the middle of the city, the teachers are very nice and well-adapted to teaching Spanish as a foreign language.

"It was an awesome and amazing time in Jerez and Tenidiomas even made the experience better!!"

julia baumgartner

I was totally satisfied with my personal experience at Tenidiomas. There were never any problems that occurred, teachers are the best you can wish for, classes were always fun. Also the facilities and the location were pretty amazing and central. Tenidiomas always offered special activities, some for free and some for very affordable prices. I really enjoyed my time with this language school; they made my time in Spain special and from speaking 0 Spanish they got me to a very good and advanced Spanish level. I literally couldn't speak a word when I got there and came back with a wide range of vocab, grammar and speaking experience. I'm now the best in my Spanish group at university.
And the best part of it, it never felt like hard work or studying because it was always fun!

"Very nice and useful, I just loved it."

Julia Makoushina

Me and my daughter received personal Spanish lessons during a month in summer 2013. Jerez is a lovely city, with Tenidiomas placed right in the heart of it, so each time we went to the school, we had a mini city tour. The only (apparent) problem is parking, so we just went on foot. There may be just queues of parents picking up or dropping off their children.

The school looks very small from the street, but it's really spacious in fact. The rooms are pretty nice, there are also places to self-study or take a rest, vending machines, etc. The equipment is pretty good for learning. Teachers are nice and helpful and very resourceful. They won't say a word in English though they can, so you totally immerse into the language environment.

And activities were also great. Carlota tried to organize much more than we could attend, but it was always fun. It was nice to meet other students from different countries learning Spanish and share our experiences. Carlota selected activities that we haven't tried so far, although all her students have been living for a while in Jerez and have already seen the main things in the city and around. She always provided helpful hints on where to go and what to visit and was ready to talk for a long time about Jerez, Andalucia, Spain, its culture, lifestyle, education and any other topics you may be interested in.

I cannot say anything about housing because I rented an apartment myself before enrolling in the school.

I totally love that month and wish I could come there again.

Apparently my level of Spanish has dramatically improved, and I could use the language while travelling throughout Andalucia.
