Course description

The intensive course + 5 consists of 20 group lessons each day, plus conversational activities in the group. As in the general Intensive course, students will have at least two teachers every week who will rotate every day. The first block of two lessons is with one teacher and the second block is with another teacher who also continues with the culture lessons. That way we make sure that all our students will learn to interact with different people and also be able to understand different accents.

The conversation lessons are perfect for speaking as much as possible as they consist mainly of debating about topics like history, arts, film, music, politics, business or about cultural differences like, for example, gestures.

Students at the Instituto de Idiomas Ibiza are supposed to learn how to communicate by speaking or writing. The objective is always to speak while learning the necessary grammar to speak directly.

Additionally, the 5 experiences "Vive en español" include Ibiza Town Immersion, Pronunciation, Food Market experience, Historia de Ibiza and Spanish for Business experience.

The intensive courses are meant to increase the knowledge of Spanish of all students as much as possible in a short time for which the class speed is relatively high and we encourage students to use everything they learned when they are outside the classroom at the beach or while enjoying the spectacular offer of leisure activities of the island.

In order to measure the success of every student, a small progress test takes place every Thursday so students and teachers can see what the student is able to put in use and, if necessary, difficulties can be solved easily.

"Teaching very good, supervision in the 50+ program not satisfactory, accommodation poor."

Sibylle Kreutner-Albrecht, student from Germany

The school program was very good, unfortunately it was not up to my standard. I started again at absolutely zero. We were only 3 students and progressed somewhat faster. In the second week came again beginners. Although the same program was offered the second week, but because I was the only one of the first week, I would have to repeat a lot of grammar and verbs again. The announced 2nd book in the second week was only based on my demand on the last day in the last hour.

The announced events took part only partly, some were canceled because of the season. The 50+ course consisted of 3 people, who had different levels. Unfortunately, we also had different accommodations so that you could also sit evenings alone without spending money.

The accommodation was 7 min walk from the school. The room was small and scarcely furnished. It reminded me more of a youth hostel. The window pointed to a dirty courtyard, but was relatively quiet. The bed was so low that I had problems every morning to get out of bed. The bathroom was tiny, a window opened straight into a dark bay. The fittings were rusted and moldy. The kitchen was a large room with a well equipped kitchen. The TV was unfortunately broken, a living room did not exist. The room was cleaned once.

"Perfect! couldn't asked for more"

Claudia Schindele, student from Germany

Everybody was very friendly and helped solve problems quickly. I felt very welcome! The private lessons were really amazing, my teacher prepared my classes for the whole week with the things I need to know and I asked her for specifics specially for my job. Absolutely well prepared for my subject! I was very surprised how she prepared and helped me!

"Lovely teachers, professional and efficient"

Aleksandria Migova

I really enjoyed these 2 weeks of studying. It was very fun and it helped me to progress in Spanish. Facilities are clean and comfortable. Location is more than perfect as it was two minutes from the bus station. Only one thing that I didn't like was when some of the teachers smelled like cigarettes while giving a class. I don't have anything against smokers; let them smoke if they want, but in a class, students shouldn't experience any annoying smells especially from the personnel.

Thanks and warm regards!

"A great combination of learning and relaxing"

Tania De Metsenaere, student from Belgium

I was only there for one week. My teachers were Anna and Maria. They made a great team, each with their own specialties.

Today, I contacted an evening school about a course in Spanish. The course I did in Ibiza was a great motivator!

The Instituto de Idiomas Ibiza selects host families carefully and inspects them regularly. This accommodation type allows you a detailed insight into Spanish life style. Here you will experience directly how the Spaniards organize their daily lives.

The majority of our host families are within a 5-20 minutes walking distance from the school. Host
families may be found in many different constellations: families with father, mother and
child, single mothers with children, couples without children, etc.. Therefore, it may be that this accommodation is a single household. The experience of the Spanish lifestyle remains the same.

Unless agreed differently, you will get a single room including breakfast. Linen will
be provided to you and you can use the washing machine 1 x per week. A private
bathroom and ironing service is usually not available, but maybe it can be agreed
with the family. Talking to the family is exactly what makes the homestay experience
particularly valuable!

Host families are suitable for those who are open to other cultures and are willing to
learn about a different way of life. In Ibiza Town as well as in San Antonio the most typical
way of living is in an apartment block.

It is not possible to book meals, but you will have access to a fully equipped kitchen. An International group in an apartment requires some sense of responsibility by all residents in order to allow a comfortable way of living together. Therefore, for example, it is not allowed having parties in the apartment.

To complete a reservation for a shared apartment, we require a deposit of 150 €. You will get it back at the end of your stay if no damage happens and if the key is returned. This is the option for all students who want to meet as many people as possible, who want to keep the costs low and who want to organize their stay independently.
