Great teachers but this school is going out of business. The Barcelona school isn't paying their teachers and, as a result, they are on strike - only working Tuesday - Thursday. Avoid at all costs!! Its a shame since their teachers are all good and deserve better!

The teachers at this school (at least in Valencia) are on indefinite strike after not having been paid for the last several months´ work. If you book this school you will not receive your classes and it is unclear whether we will receive our money back. Disaster. Choose a different school! In addition, they will not confirm any of this to you in writing, and certainly not before you actually arrive in Spain to find the school closed.

The teachers at this school are wonderful but unfortunately it might not be around for much longer. At the moment there are only classes Tuesday to Thursday because the teachers are on strike Monday and Friday, the reason being is that they haven't been paid for months.
It is still possible to pay for courses in the future, but this is an highly inadvisable thing to do as the school in on the brink as the school is barely functioning at the moment.
My advice would be to find another school in Barcelona.

The teachers are on strike on my very first day of class due to the fact that they have not been paid since December (almost three months). Therefore no class took place. I undestand the teachers but what I don't understand is that the owner does not pay them. This will be my last language class at Babylon.

I read a review above that sums it all up really.

Where the teachers may be lovely and actually rather good at teaching, the inherent lack of customers means you are put in a group that is well below your level and spend a lot of time learning the basics. The office is a bit of a joke as well, the lack of organisation is very clear.

Although they have some great teachers and lovely people, I would advise going only if you are new to Spanish and don't have a decent understanding of the language.

Also watch out, they have some cranky people in the school too!
