Claudia and Sabine from Germany took an intensive Spanish course with us in March and we asked them what they thought of the course and of Valladolid
Why did you choose Valladolid for your Spanish course?
The airport. There are direct flights from our home town in Germany to Valladolid airport.
What did you both think of Valladolid?
Valladolid is the perfect size. It has everything from impressive historic buildings to great nightlife. We feel really safe here. The city centre is quite compact; we were able to walk everywhere. It makes a good base for exploring the region. Until we arrived, we hadn´t realized how many fascinating places there were to visit. We regret not leaving enough time for exploring the area.
We really like the tapas. Sabine is vegetarian and she managed to eat well. What we loved was that the waiters and bar staff were always very eager to help us. They took the time to explain the food and were always helpful, even making suggestions of what we might like to try.
So what did you think of your classes?
We found the level quite challenging compared to what we were used to but our teacher did an excellent job. She took great care to support us and make us feel at ease. I think we didn´t realize how demanding an intensive course can be. We really liked the fact that the course was completely in Spanish as we got a real feel for the language, especially the pronunciation.
We are now thinking of taking another course with International House Santander to discover a different part of Spain!
