Can I use the WC/restroom?
It´s next to room 103. Go ahead and use it at your convenience. Don´t forget to lower the lid, turn off the water and turn the lights off.
What can we do during the break?
You can have a coffee with other students and teachers… or you can do your homework if you haven’t done it yet!
Is it allowed to bring food or coffee to class?
Food normally does not smell good in class so it may annoy your fellow students. We suggest you to have your food after your class.
If I miss one class, can it be made up?
I´m afraid only you are responsible for your attendance. Only PRIVATE classes can be rescheduled as long as you let us know, at least, 24 hours in advance and always depending on room and teachers availability.
Can I pay with credit card?
In order to avoid uncomfortable card frauds we only accept cash and bank transfers.
When do I have to pay extra lessons?
All courses must be paid in advance, so you will have to pay before your extra lessons start.
Where is the closest ATM or cash point?
You can find one round the corner, in La Merced street, in front of the University.
Is it possible to find cheap restaurants to eat out?
Yes, there are a lot of cheap tapas restaurants as well as cheap vegetarian restaurants near the school. We can recommend some of them, but remember our STUDENTS´ CARD for special discounts.
Where can I park my car?
Being located in the city centre it is really difficult to find a parking place in the area. There is a public parking place right at the end of Enrique Villar street (1 €/hour) and we would suggest some free parkings in the city. One is right at the end of Paseo del Malecón and another one by the old Oficina de Extranjería building, both around 30 mins walking far from the school. Please ask at reception.
