What do our students think about the Teacher training programme?
Hello Españole! Hello everybody! I am Mandy from Germany. At university I am studying Spanish to become a teacher of this wonderful language. In summer 2016 I went to Valencia for the second time to practice more. Already in 2015 it was a stick! The city of Valencia has completely captured me, yes, I am in love with Valencia. The city of Valencia has completely captured me, yes, I am in love with Valencia. The teachers at Espanole are great, very competent, so during the lessons we learnt a lot and had a good time. I like to reminisce about my time in Valencia suffering from low temperatures in winter. In Valencia I lived the time of my life! I will certainly come back. I miss you!
