Yes, we organize a lot of activities such as going out for a drink, visits to museums, guided city tours, excursions, dinners, concerts, etc. We also go scuba diving in summer, and we love it!!!

Can we borrow books or films from the library?
Of course, you can check them out here or take them home for a week. It´s free but we will ask for a 5 € per item which is refunded when you return the items.
Can I use the WC/restroom?
It´s next to room 103. Go ahead and use it at your convenience.
What can we do during the break?
You can have a coffee with the 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 eat your food after class.
If I miss one class, can it be made up?
I´m afraid only you are responsible for your attendance, so the answer is no. Only PRIVATE classes can be rescheduled as long as you let us know at least 24 hours in advance. This is always dependent on room and teacher availability.
Can I pay with a credit card?
In order to avoid uncomfortable card frauds we only accept cash and bank transfers.
When do I have to pay for 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 eat out on a budget?
Yes, there are a lot of inexpensive tapas restaurants as well as inexpensive vegetarian restaurants near the school. We can recommend some of them, but remember to buy 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 public parking right at the end of Enrique Villar Street (1 €/hour) but we suggest looking for free parking 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 distance from the school.
