Spanish school in San Sebastian?

Hello all,

I am planning a Spain trip for next Spring, and San Sebastian has always been my favorite destination. I will have a week to kill, before I hook up with some family members and I was thinking of taking Spanish classes for a week.

Can anyone recommend a school in San Sebastian? There seems to be a ton of options. Most seemed geared towards college students, which I am not. I am 43 years old, but young at heart so I don't mind taking classes with a younger group.

Anyone have experience with any of the schools? Any recommendations?

Thanks !!!

You can flip a coin, but Donostia is not the best place to study Castilian Spanish, although it is possible. Now if you wanted to study Euskara, that is a question of another color...

Thanks for the quick reply, and I already speak Euskara. Looking to add some Spanish before hooking up with family members.........some of which only speak Spanish.

I emailed a couple of the schools.....waiting on their replies. Excited to try something different in Donostia, besides my usual drinking, sightseeing, drinking, eating, and drinking :)

I have no experience of this place myself, but the website certainly looks friendly and interesting: http://www.elaulaazul.com/

Hi,

you can take a look a lancunza, they have many languages and clases, people usually go for more than a week but on the prizes you can see that they have and option from 1 to 3 weeks. Here is the link:

Hi,

You can ask for a request to KOMA LINGUA as well. They have different classes and also one to one sesions to go further in the language you might need. I have heard very good comments from them because they have a very well organized teaching system that suits to your level to get most of your time: www.komalingua.com

Hope that it will be helpful.

Greetings,

Aitor
