I've contacted them to ask an information what levels of Taronja school Spanish language courses (named like intermediate/advanced, lower intermediate, intermediate, advanced, etc.) correspond to the officially recognised B2.2 level. They told me that they cannot tell this, but teachers will decide on my level and have sent me loads of unnecessary advertisement. Then I repeated my question, that I need to know specifically this question and that I do not ask about MY level, I ask which one of their levels correspond to the officially recognised B2.2 level. Following six more email exchanges, they still repeated me the same useless information and did not provide a reply to the question which I asked. What a waste of time and disrespect of people. I doubt if this school corresponds to Cervantes method and that they would be able to issue a certificate indicating the officially recognised language levels. It did not sound trustful at all, in additional to much higher prices of their courses than in the other language schools in Valencia. leer menos

I am pleased to give it 5 stars. All lessons were well prepared, engaging and fun. All staff members were supportive yet challenging. I was pleasantly surprised not to feel my age as a handicap among students largely much younger than me. I had fun with them and met many other older students as well. As to the activities offered by the school, there were so many of them that you could pick and choose. My husband (studying at a different level than mine) and I, did exactly that. We didn't go to all but enjoyed what we had chosen. We enjoyed the cooking class, the songs, the movies, the Saturday excursion. I saw a critic among the reviews concerning a bull fight and I thought that was totally out of line. If you disagree with an offered activity that is part of the culture you are supposedly trying to learn about, just don't go. But don't blame the school for offering other people with different values than yours a chance to experience that activity! Anyway, we had such a good experience that we are seriously thinking about going back to study in Taronja next spring for a couple of weeks at least. Well done Taronja staff, the whole team, teachers, office staff, organizers. We loved the school, we adored Valencia. We will be back. Thank you all so much! leer menos

The teachers are extremely friendly, the school is small but really nice and the activities were amazing. On the weekends, there are trips to other cities or places and throughout the week, the school organises other activities like paella evenings, city tours or cooking classes. The appartment i stayed in, was clean and big. I have no complaints at all and had the best summer vacation ever leer menos
