"The DWS Spanish School is not only a school but a place like a home with wonderful people"

Claire FANTINI, student from France

I arrived in Argentina from France without speaking Spanish at all and I had only three weeks to learn for my travel in South America.... and they did it with me !! All the team is very great and they really adapt theirs lessons to your needs and progress. The organization is top and the location too in a nice part of the city. I spent three wonderful weeks in Buenos Aires thanks to them, I was really enjoying to go to my Spanish lessons every day and meet the teachers and other students. Thank you so much !!

Philip we really enjoyed your stay at DWS !!!! I hope to see you son.

"Great time!"

Roxana Valea

I loved the school. The teaching method was fantastic. I had two teachers, Aries for a week then Santiago for the rest of the course. Both were great. Santi did an absolutely amazing job to teach me Spanish and we went very rapidly though the levels from A2 to C1 in 3 months. Feeling like a got a lot out of it!! I very much enjoyed Santi's teaching methods, conversations, and he even managed to make me absorb the subjunctive topic- a great teacher!
The location was great. I did not stay at the housing provided, so cannot comment about it. The social activities were not that great. In 3 months of attending the school I have only been invited to 2 activities, I did not know about the rest of them. The 2 activities that I went to were in not so nice locations.... I think the school could do more in this respect.
But overall I had a fantastic experience and would definitely recommend the school to anyone I know!
Muchas gracias a todos!
