WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

I spent two weeks at Aula Toledo to improve my written level of Spanish. Maite, the school director, was very helpful with organising the trip and tailored a course to my specific needs.
My teacher, Cristina, was fantastic. She provided great material to work with and I feel she has helped me immensely with my Spanish.
I stayed with a host family and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
A well-run school with dedicated staff that truly care about their students. I highly recommend this school, it will surpass your expectations!

HIGHLY RECOMMANDED !

We sent our children aged 7 and 12 to Aula Toledo. Maite, director of the school, is looking for all her students personally. She arranged classes for both children which were perfect for their individual level. Isabel, our teacher , was perfect for both of them as well. They learned a lot and we all enjoyed Toledo which is a great place to stay and to get closed to Spanish life and history.

The classes were very well prepared, interesting and diverting at the same time. The facilities at school are very good, also the material used during the classes. Toledo itself is a beautiful old city and offers a lot to see and to do - and everything is within walking distance. I can highly recommend Aula Toledo.

AN ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE!

I recently spent ten days learning at Aula Toledo and was thoroughly pleased from start to finish. Maite and her staff were extremely communicative before and after my time in Toledo, and very professional at all times. The class was taught in a small group setting, with individual attention paid to each student. Our teacher, Isabel, went above and beyond with tons of great tips on how to enjoy Toledo /Spain as well as personalized language learning tools. Toledo is a great place to learn Spanish and the folks at Aula Toledo know the city inside and out. They gave us a personal guided tour of the city and a very helpful info packet with dozens of restaurants (affordable and atmospheric) as well as all the main sites of the city, when to see them, and why they are significant. I learned so much and after a very short time felt comfortable communicating in Spanish. Aula Toledo exceeded my expectations from start to finish and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone looking to discover Spain and the language.

COULDN’T HAVE ASKED FOR A BETTER EXPERIENCE

My 16 y.o. daughter and I spent two weeks in February 2014 studying at Aula. From the first time I contacted Maite, the owner, from the minute we all hugged goodbye, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Maite and her team of teachers adapted and adjusted the instruction to meet the unique needs of my daughter and myself. Classes were varied and engaging, homework was appropriate, and humor was always present! Maite also helped us find a perfect apartment for our stay. The entire school staff was welcoming and very friendly. When my daughter caught a stomach bug, the entire staff was so helpful, going out of their way to be sure we were ok. Toledo is a perfect city in which to enjoy learning Spanish. There is so much to see and do and the city is very walkable. You can't go wrong with Aula - you'll love it!!

MY BEST SPANISH IMMERSION EXPERIENCE

Aula Toledo provided a wonderful immersion experience. Maite provided a wealth of assistance prior to my travel to Spain and set me up with the finest host family I could imagine. The language instruction at the school is excellent and Maite provided a tour of Toledo that made me love the city even more. I highly recommend Aula Toledo. I had good study experiences in Salamanca, Spain and in Costa Rica but this experience was the best of all.

MY LOVELY TOLEDO TRIP

I spent two weeks staying with a wonderful Spanish family in the heart of Toledo's old city.
I was extremely lucky to practice Spanish every day and evening with my hosts, and to receive such excellent tuition in a small, professional and friendly language school.
I would recommend it to anyone!

GREAT EXPERIENCE

I spent a week at Aula Toledo this summer, and it was a fantastic experience. The classes were tailored to my level and well organized with many different activities to keep things interesting. The teachers were great, and Maite was so helpful with organizing the entire trip. I stayed at a nearby hotel, which was very convenient to the school. Toledo was a wonderful place to spend a week and explore.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND

My experience at Aula Toledo exceeded my expectations. Maite, the director, was helpful from our first contact. My teacher, Christina, was excellent. She came to each lesson prepared with an interesting activity and quickly identified my level and helped move me forward. I have been to other langauge schools and the quality of teaching here is by far the best.

PERFECT COMBINATION

I came to Toledo and Aula Toledo in order to refresh my knowledge about the use of the subjuntivo and to practice speaking Spanish.
As this is probably not the standard program for a language course, I asked for individual classes and of course for staying in a host family.
Both turned out to be just perfect.
The teachers at the school put a course together for me, which fit perfectly my level and abilities. Now I only have to use all what I learned there.
And my host family - well it was like visiting an old friend!
Finally, the city. Well I guess I don't have to tell you what a beautiful city it is and how important it once was for our European culture. And it is really convenient to reach from Madrid airport. It is always worth a visit, but "living" in this city for a whole week (the house of my host family was in the old town 10 minutes away from the school) is a completely different story. Every morning on the way to school I could explore other parts of the town. My absolute favorite was San Roman, located very close to the school, but not for the museum but for the frescos!
So, if you want to learn or improve your Spanish and you have some interest for culture - don't wait to book your language trip to Aula Toledo.

¡LO PASÉ FENOMENAL!

I first heard about Aula Toledo whilst visiting expo-langue in Paris and really liked the idea of practising my Spanish. This summer, therefore, I decided to attend Aula Toledo. The family who I stayed with were really friendly and they made a real effort to make me feel welcome.
I found the classes quite challenging (being placed in the B2) group but really beneficial- I feel as if my standard of speaking and listening in Spanish have significantly improved since taking the week long course.
I would highly recommend Aula Toledo to anyone wishing to practise their Spanish given the high standard of teaching and the friendly atmosphere of the school.

AULA TOLEDO IS THE CLEAR CHOICE

Aula Toledo's top priority is the student. I studied there for four weeks and enjoyed every second. Every aspect of class was designed to help me and my classmates tackle our problem areas, and by the end of my time there, I felt that my Spanish had improved significantly. Big thanks to my instructor Cristina F. and the rest of the school's team.
The class sizes were perfect for studying a language, with plenty of time dedicated to conversation and practice. There were also activities outside of class that were really fun and engaging, like movie nights, games, and tours around Toledo (now one of my favorite cities). One thing I was able to do through the school was schedule meet-ups with native Spanish speakers to practice my Spanish outside of class. Aula Toledo's director, Maite, is incredibly helpful and definitely wants each student to enjoy and take advantage of the experience as much as possible.
I highly recommend Aula Toledo, and I can't wait to visit again someday!

COULDN’T HAVE ASKED FOR A BETTER EXPERIENCE

I originally came to Aula Toledo expecting to stay and study for four weeks, but after loving the school, the town, and the people so much I ended up extending my trip an extra two weeks (I would have stayed even longer had I not been the best man for my brother’s wedding the next week, and even then I considered staying!) Overall, Toledo is a great city to enjoy yourself and an equally good one to learn Spanish, as the lack of English speakers (and preference for speaking Spanish even among those who do know English) provides for a legitimate immersion experience that in my opinion can’t be matched by bigger cities like Madrid or Salamanca (where it’s much easier to fall in to the trap of speaking English everywhere you go due to the number of expats and English-speaking locals). It’s also less than an hour away from Madrid, so it’s easy and relatively cheap to take a weekend or afternoon trip over there if you decide you want a changeup from the “Toledano” atmosphere.
That being said, although I now know that Toledo is a special place, I’d be lying if I said that my enjoyment of the city and my appreciation for all its places and people were not almost directly correlated to my experience and treatment by those at Aula Toledo. For starters, the director of the school, Maite, was absolutely amazing in terms of her kindness and helpfulness throughout my entire experience, whether it was offering me advice on places to stay, eat, and visit both inside and outside the city walls; lending me a Spanish cell phone so that I could talk with people back home much more cheaply than on my own cell phone; or even coming to pick me up and bring me to school after I had gotten lost amidst the streets during the first day of class. She also put me in contact with a number of locals with whom I was able to not only practice my Spanish but also learn a lot about the region’s culture/lifestyle and make a ton of new friends (almost all of whom I have been able to stay in contact with thanks to facebook, whatsapp, and skype!)
As for the classes, they were as fun and beneficial as I could have possible imagined, thanks in large part to my knowledgeable, patient, and approachable teacher Christina, who must have worked tremendously hard to put together all of the engaging and useful lesson plans, which along with the tremendously small classroom sizes (which never exceeded two people and for the most part it was just me) provided me with an incredible learning environment that put to shame all those of all my previous Spanish courses (no offense to any of my high school spanish teachers, who were pretty awesome but unfortunately not up to snuff in comparison to Christina). She was also very flexible with what she taught (normally preparing two or more lesson plans for a given day and letting students choose which one interested them more/most) and sought constant feedback from us students to make sure we were satisfied with the experience and to find out if there was anything in particular we wanted to add, takeaway, or change from the course structure. Perhaps most important was that she also gave honest, positive, and constructive feedback to each student in terms of both their progressive and remaining weaknesses, and as far as homework was concerned, that too was very flexible, as she would assign us a certain number of exercises each night while recommending a few more in case we needed or wanted extra practice (not to mention graciously forgiving those who gave a half-hearted or non-existent attempt to the assignment!)
In terms of the accommodations, I opted for staying with a host family, and was unbelievably and pleasantly surprised at how amazing the whole experience was. As an introvert who is especially uncomfortable staying in homes other than my own, I was admittedly apprehensive about going this route, but in contrast to the stories I had heard of the greedy and rude Spanish hosts who treated their “guests” with contempt and were seemingly only in it for the money, thankfully my two hosts (a young couple of engaged lawyers who lived within five minutes walking distance from the school) were as respectful, generous, and welcoming (not to mention cool, well-rounded and incredibly humble despite their well-off circumstances) as could be, providing me with full access to their beautiful and spacious apartment; cooking me a delicious gourmet dinner every night while allowing me to practice my Spanish with them as much as I wanted; and sharing with me the nuances of Spanish and Toledan culture while taking a genuine interest in my own, as well.
All in all, every aspect of the trip was phenomenal, and if everything goes according to plan I will return to the school again next year (hopefully along with my younger sister and even my mom!), and regardless of whether or not you are the fiesta, the siesta, or the studying type, I would thoroughly recommend going with Aula Toledo to any person interested in an enjoyable, gratifying, and overall worthwhile Spanish immersion experience.

AULA TOLEDO

I have really enjoyed my two weeks studying at Aula Toledo. They are very professional, provide quality teaching and are able to give personalised attention to students. They have helped me to get around the town and took the time to give some nice tips about it.
I think Toledo is a great choice to learn Spanish. It's a beautiful small town, very rich culturally and ideal for those who would like to be at a quieter place.

GREAT EXPERIENCE

We were a group of three retirees from Finland and spent two weeks at Aula Toledo. Our experiences with the school, the appartment and the city of Toledo are very positive. Aula Toledo is a great place to learn Spanish and especially we were very satisfied with the teachers patience when we had our challenges with the Spanish verbs. We can highly recommend Aula Toledo and Toledo.

SPANISH IMMERSION AT ITS BEST

Having spent a week earlier this month with Aula Toledo, I would recommend it to anyone serious about improving his/her knowledge of the Spanish language.
The team at Aula Toledo provides professional tuition for any level/need and caters for any age group. I studied Spanish some 30 years ago to A level equivalence in France. Within one week, I achieved more than in many months of evening adult classes in England (obviously, catering more for the English)
Outside the classroom, Maite went out of her way to make sure my time way used in a constructive manner in this very cultural and historical city, I also joined a guided tour and took part in a couple of language exchanges.
My stay with a local resident was also very pleasant and very beneficial.
Overall a very good experience.
Thanks to Maite, Cristina F and Cristina L

ABOVE EXPECTATIONS FROM A TO Z

That week with Aula Toledo has just been timeless. Not only because it was around New Year's Eve in that cute quiet city of Toledo but mostly because Maite was kind enough to make herself, her team and the host family incredibly available and thoughtful from the very first to the very last minute.
Here are some thoughts I've came back to the Swiss Alps with:
- There still are generous, lively, positive, responsive people out there and it is so good to meet/work with them;
- It is incredible how much one can learn within a short period of time when the teacher is good;
- How come didn't I know Toledo before?
Thanks again to the whole team and hugs to Maite,

STUDYING SPANISH WITH A HISTORIC FLAIR

I took a one week Spanish course at Aula Toledo and I can highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a perfect combination of learning/improving Spanish and staying in a small historic town.
Even before having arrived I could experience the good service of the school as Maite, the school’s director, answered all my emails quickly and gave me necessary information, e.g. about transport. On my first day Maite took us on a tour of the city which was helpful to receive important information about the city and to get some orientation in Toledo.
My classes were well organized and effective and the content of the course was adjusted exactly to our requirements. Due to the commitment of our teacher Cristina we enjoyed every minute, but at the same time our language skills improved considerably. I had interrupted my Spanish education for several years, but because of the intensive training with Cristina I could reach the old level within short time and even improved my language capacity.
Apart from school and homework we had time to discover Toledo with its interesting historic and cultural background. I shared a nice apartment with a friend very close to the school in the heart of the city.
I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere at Aula Toledo and the excellent language training. It was a great experience there and if possible once again I will come back.

トレド唯一の語学学校

4ヵ月ほど滞在いたしましたが素晴しいの一言です。

なんといっても自由度の高さと少人数の授業が魅力です。

マンツーマンのコースでは火曜日午前に行われる市場へ行ったり実際に魚屋へ行ったりと教室の中では出来ないアクティビティーがたくさんあります。おそらく希望すれば散歩しながらの授業やバルでタパスを食べながら授業なども可能です。

また先生方も非常にフレンドリーで先生と生徒といった感じではなく友達同士で話してる感覚です。授業中は様々な質問が先生のほうから飛んできてそれをスペイン語でこちらが解説するというようなことも多々ありましたので、会話能力などは飛躍的に伸びました。

大規模な学校では出来ない非常に個人的な授業が魅力といえます。

4ヵ月ほど滞在いたしましたが素晴しいの一言です。 なんといっても自由度の高さと少人数の授業が魅力です。 マンツーマンのコースでは火曜日午前に行われる市場へ行ったり実際に魚屋へ行ったりと教室の中では出来ないアクティビティーがたくさんあります。おそらく希望すれば散歩しながらの授業やバルでタパスを食べながら授業なども可能です。 また先生方も非常にフレンドリーで先生と生徒といった感じではなく友達同士で話してる感覚です。授業中は様々な質問が先生のほうから飛んできてそれをスペイン語でこちらが解説するというようなことも多々ありましたので、会話能力などは飛躍的に伸びました。 大規模な学校では出来ない非常に個人的な授業が魅力といえます。

I have 30 years experience in teaching faculty how to teach. The teachers at Aula Toledo are absolutely excellent. So good, in fact that I just came back from a second program in Aula Toledo. The classes are kept very small so that all of the students are engaged all of the time. They are a constant mix of listening, speaking, reading, writing and grammar. Maite and all of the other teachers are great at helping you out with any question you might have, not only about current Spanish life, but history, Spanish grammar, and the current "scene" in Toledo.
I had a great family stay as well. I had a couple of personal problems that I needed to deal with and both my host family and Maite were extremely helpful in straightening them out. You really can't ask for more in a language school! I would concur with all of the other five star reviews!

AN TRULY AMAZING EXPERIENCE

I had the great opportunity to visit the wonderful city of Toledo in December of 2011 to do an intensive Spanish course at Aula Toledo. In the weeks coming up to my arrival, Maite was in contact with me helping me to organise travel arrangements and also to tell me about my host family, which in itself was very reassuring. I arrived at the train station in Toledo and was met by my family who drove me to their home. The home itself was very nice, very near the school in the old city, with my own bathroom and access to WiFi. As for my family, they were perfect. The couple had two children, so the family atmosphere was great, and they not only gave me a tour of the town on the first day, but at each meal time they always engaged in conversation with me in Spanish.
The school, and the teachers, were also amazing. I was lucky enough to go at a time when there were very few people at the school, and as a result I was the only person in my class for most of the time, although there were other students at the school. While this may seem quite nerve racking for some, I can assure that the atmosphere was very relaxed, and never awkward, thanks to my two teachers, Cristina and Maite. We always had very topical discussions, and the lessons were catered to me, and since I wanted to practice conversation, that is what we focused on while also doing grammar, reading and listening.
The schools also helped me to plan activities, such as free guided visits around the city, so I was never short of things to do, and Maite helped arrange an exchange with local Spanish students my own age (16) so I could get to know the local way of life for young people.
All in all, the 2 weeks was amazing, and my Spanish improved an incomprehensible amount, from merely conversational, to being able to have a very accurate in depth conversation with natives, with absolutely no trouble understanding or fluently expressing what I wanted to say.
If you want to do a language course in a culturally and historically rich city, at a school where you are guaranteed to have fun and improve your Spanish a lot, Aula Toledo is the place to go. Out of the 5 or so language courses I have done, this was by far the best.

AULA TOLEDO: A GREAT EXPERIENCE

Aula Toledo mirrors the remarkable city it nestles in. Located in the historic centre of the city, it is small, intimate and welcoming. The standard of teaching is high and classes are small. The team is headed by Maite Lopez — a charming hostess and talented teacher. Maite has gathered around her a team of similarly talented young women who share her good humour and passion for teaching. Doing business with the school is also easy: transactions are prompt and any changes are dealt with efficiently and fairly. The school is impeccably honest and open in its dealings. There are no hidden costs or attempts to factor in additional profit through delaying payments or withholding refunds. There is a family feel about the school and you immediately sense there is a genuine interest in you as an individual. Everything about the school has a personal touch and it is done with real generosity of spirit. On several occasions, I was helped with personal matters such as credit cards and train bookings and, although not strictly business, this help was offered freely and without demur.
Maite also takes particular care in choosing home stay arrangements for her students and placements are excellently matched to the individual's tastes and interests. Having had a few bad home stay experiences this was something I particularly appreciated. My home stay could not have been better and I count my stay in Toledo as one of the best experiences of my life. Aula Toledo is nothing like your usual "pump them through" language school and I'll be heading back as soon as I can.

AMERICAN @ AULA TOLEDO

Great experience! Attended a two week intensive Spanish immersion course in January. Professors were extremely versed in grammar and practicality, as well. They quickly adjusted to my level and moved forward with repairing bad habits. Quaint school that is very comfortable. Toledo is the place to go to learn Spanish, particularly if you are going to live with a local family which I would highly recommend. It is a small town with a lot of charm that allows you to blend in and experience the Spanish lifestyle. Madrid is a short train ride from Toledo. What really makes the experience worth while is the passion of the staff at Aula Toledo. They work extremely hard to help accomplish your goals. I will return to this school in the near future.

GOOD LOCATION, GOOD SCHOOL

Aula was a great place for learning Spanish. Maite and Cristina, my two teachers, were both patient and enthusiastic and made learning easy and enjoyable. Aula also helped me meet local Toledanos who were studying English at the school. It was great to have that opportunity to practice Spanish outside of the classroom and make friends at the same time. I definitely recommend Aula to anyone who wants to learn Spanish.

SCHOOL CAN BE GREAT – IN TOLEDO!

I spent a most interesting and enjoyable week studying Spanish in AULA TOLEDO. Our teacher was super: she made us speak, write, discuss and even teached us grammar and all that with great expertise. We also got a wery good material, a book and CD, which were made with a great professional skill. I´ve used them both many times at home and found them very helpful.
Even if I had to work quite hard doing the exercises in the evenings because of my poor knowledge of Spanish, it was FUN! And most delightful was to notice how much you can learn in a week when teaching and learning materials are on high level.
The spirit of AULA TOLEDO was free and easy, friendly and jovial, so it is no wonder I enjoyed my school week very much.
Toledo itself is a charming city with a special atmosphere and has lots to offer. So it would be a great choice to travel to Toledo to study Spanish at AULA TOLEDO and have an opportunity to enjoy the city of Toledo.

GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR FAMILY TRAVEL!

We came to Toledo for two weeks of language class with our two daughters (7 and 11) and a friend of theirs (12). Aula Toledo organized classes for all of us, with lots of individual attention. The classes were serious and covered a lot of ground quickly, while also being fun and entertaining. In this type of language class, the personality of the teachers is so important and the teachers here could not have been more warm and friendly. Going to class was fun--as was the break in the middle of class each morning, in which the teachers took us out to different cafes in the city to have a coffee or the kids' favorite--Cola Cao. We would highly recommend this language school for students of all ages and levels.

AMAZING

During my stay in Toledo there were 2 things that were extremely important, and central to the whole experience: The school itself, and the host family. I am happy to say that for me, both of these were perfect!
The host family was amazing: The house was brilliant and in a great location, and all of the people in the family were really friendly and helpful. It was great to return from class each day and have a delicious (and often enormous) meal waiting for me, and I could never have learnt so much without being able to practice speaking with the family. It was also great that they had such a wide range of ages in their family, with 2 sons aged 23 and 26, and a daughter aged 3 who always great fun.
For me the school was also amazing. When I had to fill in the questionnaire on my last day, there was a section for suggestions, but I really couldnt think of any way in which the lessons could have been improved. I have had Spanish lessons in the past in the UK, and always found the materials to be poor, and didn't really learn a lot. The materials here were good, and the lessons were fun and interesting, and I think I have greatly improved my Spanish over the past 4 weeks. When I arrived in Spain my host family didn't think I could say anything in Spanish, and to be honest this wasn't far from the truth! After just a few weeks at Aula Toledo I have been able to have lots of interesting conversations with people in Spanish, and have generally been able to understand what people have said to me, and have made myself understood most of the time.
Outside of class, Maite has organised lots of things for me to do in the evenings, such as watching films in Spanish, going to concerts, going on tours of the city and having intercambios with students who are learning English. This has been great, because I don't think I would have found any of these activities on my own.
For me, the best part of this whole experience has to have been all of the lessons that I had, especially in the last 2 weeks when I was the only student in the class. My teacher was excellent, and we got on really well. She was really easy to talk to, and always showed a great amount of interest in what I had to say. I'm going to miss her a lot!
Overall, Toledo is a beautiful city, and the school has been excellent. I have learnt a huge amount of Spanish during my time here, and can't really think of any ways that the course could have been better.

AULATOLEDO:2 SEMANAS INCREÌBLES

Hola,
soy un chico italiano y he transcurrido 2 semanas en Toledo.Cualquier adjetivo para hablar de esta experiencia serìa desperdiciado.El casco antiguo de Toledo es una cosa ùnica en todo el mundo. El curso es muy ùtil y combina mucha conversaciòn con la justa parte de gramatica. Los profesores son amables,preparados y te ayudan para cualquiera cosa. La directriz es extraordinaria y disponible para cualquira cosa, y si hay un problema te ayuda sin duda. Si queréis disfrutar en todo Espana desde el idioma hasta la comida os aconsejo alojar en familia como yo. Mi familia fue muy acogedora y ahora la echo de menos.:-) Id sin vacilaciones no os arrepentiréis. Ah y Madrid està a media hora con el tren. Adìos

Wonderful time in Toledo!


Hello, I spent a wonderful time in Toledo! The two weeks organized by Aula Toledo were so rich! First, I wanted to go to Toledo, because it is a very old and culturally interesting town. The old part of Toledo (el casco) is very nice and you can visit a lot of sites (old Roman bath, mosque, synagogue, churches, cathedral, museum of El Greco and so much more… and there are so nice bars and restaurants).
Then, I looked for a language school and found Aula Toledo. Although I organized my time in Toledo very spontaneously, Maite López, the director of Aula Toledo, was very committed and found a host family in a few days. The contact (e-mail) was very reliable I always got help and answers very quickly. The Premium Intensive course (24 hours/week) was very helpful to improve the knowledge of Spanish language. The main focus was communication, but our teachers were always ready to revise grammatical problems etc. if we wanted to do it. Our group was very small: 4 students and one teacher, so we always had the opportunity to talk and our teachers found good and varied occasions to speak about. They were very interested in our persons, our lands…They are humorous people and had a very good sense of what every student wanted to learn and was able to do. We enjoyed the time together!
After school I lived in a Spanish family, so nice! They gave me the opportunity to become integrated into their family and were so open to me. They showed me interesting sites and gave me some good advice what to do. And they spent a lot of time with me. So I had another good occasion to talk and to learn about the Spanish culture. And it was a wonderful human experience.
Thank you so much!

2 amazing weeks in Toledo

Hello everyone!
I spend 2 amazing weeks in Toledo. I was basically looking for something serious and fun. I read so many reviews and understood that many "schools" do not actually deliver what is required to master a language.
Aula Toledo is first all a real school with talented teachers. They really sense the needs of a student and how to help him progress effectively. The program is clear and you can really notice the improvement quickly. I will also recommend a minimum of 2 weeks to really get the maximum of it.
The school is as well amazing, very stylish and you can really feel after a while at home.
I took the option to stay in a family. Everything was great and I salute the two of them as they were really kind and down to earth. They welcomed me not only as a guest but also as a friend. That makes the experience even richer.
Toledo? A great city full of history with amazing food and fun!
I highly recommend this school and strongly believe they should deserve much more credit as I can really see the improvement! Be part of the adventure and go to Aula Toledo!!!

Toledo is a wonderful city

Holá!
I studied 2 weeks in Aula Toledo and the whole experience was just great!
Toledo is a wonderful city, every corner is picture-worthy, and it has a unique and incredibly rich history. To illustrate this, the walls of the room where I lived were made of stones from the wisigoth and Arabic eras and there was a roman cistern in my closet!
I've studied in a few language schools and I can tell that the service, the whole registration process, is the best I've encountered. You really feel like you are welcomed. My host family waited for me at the train station and Maite toured with me in the city showing me the main points of interests, restaurants and bars (they are surprisingly many).
The courses themselves are great too. They are centered on conversation, but of course, all the important aspects are covered (grammar, audition, tricks to learn verbs, slang etc.), and meanwhile you learn a lot about Spanish culture. My teacher, Chus, adapted rapidly to my level.
As I said, I lived in a family, wonderful and kind people. The room was perfect (my own bathroom!) and food was fantastic. I practiced a lot with them and it was a real immersion. I made a lot of progress there!
My two weeks in Toledo were certainly the highlights of my trip in Spain and I just wished I had stayed longer!!

Todo perfecto

Pasé una semana con Aula Toledo y habría podido pasar muchas más tan la experiencia me gustó. En general, soy bastante crítica pero en este caso no había mucho que criticar.
La ciudad es fantástica y da la impresión de vivir en siglos pasados pero con las comodidades modernas. La comida está muy rica y la gente muy agradable. Por suerte no se habla mucho inglés todavía.
En cuanto a la escuela, el sitio, el ambiente, los docentes, todo perfecto. Me gustó el contenido del curso. Me gustó también la honestidad de la escuela. Por ejemplo, cuando dicen 4 horas, son 4, no 3.30. Cuando hacen una semana de 3 días por causa de vacaciones, no hacen pagar 5 días. Cuando dicen que no se fuma en la casa, no se fuma, no es que se fuma en la ventana con la mitad del humo volviendo dentro de la casa como lo experimenté la semana siguiente en otra ciudad.
Bueno, solo cosas positivas. Yo seguro que volveré (si me aceptan).

" I have been twice to Aula Toledo as well as taking some on-line courses with them and on each occasion I have been very pleased and impressed with the teaching and service I received.
The teachers could not have been more dedicated and helpful and always consulted with me closely over my needs, objectives and topics that interest me , ensuring that every class was highly productive and enjoyable. They also gave me very useful feedback and lots of resources for further study.
Apart from the classes I also appreciated the opportunity to explore the beautiful city of Toledo in more depth and learn and experience so much more than I could have done during a short touristic visit ."

Excellent school! I recommend it!!!

I booked 2 weeks course at Aula Toledo and I had a very good experience. Classes were tailored to my needs and I had 2 different teachers Cristina and Susana. I found both of them very helpful and nice. In addition, their preparation and experience with foreign students was outstanding. I really enjoyed the classes and they helped me to become more confident with the spanish language. They all made me feeling very welcome like if I was part of the 'family'. Maite went out of the way and looked for all free visits and activities that Toledo was offering at the time of my stay. She was always available to answer my questions and to look for more information for me. Toledo is a very nice and interesting town, it is also very safe and definitely it is worth to visit. The school found for me a family that offered a nice room and that made my stay very comfortable. In addition this helped me to speak spanish outside the classroom. I will probably return to Toledo for a more advanced course as I had a great experience.

Fantastic School

I spent a week in Aula Toledo and loved it. I was worried before the course I might not enjoy it so only booked a week, but I honestly wish I'd booked longer. I will definitely go back in future. The location, course and teacher were all fantastic. I originally chose a group class but switched to 1 to 1 lessons that were really helpful. The city is lovely and very close to Madrid, so it’s easy to get to/from the airport to the school, or if you just wanted to spend a day visiting Madrid that’s no problem. 100% recommended!

Esperienza indescrivibile

Avrei passato sei mesi a Toledo, Necessitavo di un posto dove prepare il mio esame DELE. Impossibile trovare di meglio di 'Aula Toledo'. Professori preparati non solo didatticamente ma soprattutto sotto l'aspetto umano. Ti aiutano a trovare l'orario più adatto alle tue esigenze, a volte andando anche contro i proprio orari. Non posso fare altro che consigliarlo a tutti.

Great Experience!

First of all, Aula Toledo is in a great location. Toledo is one of the most charming cities I've been to. The school is in a very nice building close to the cultural center of town. I was there for 2 weeks. The first week was 1 on 1 lessons and the 2nd week was with one other student. I think my Spanish progressed significantly in that short amount of time. The teachers were attentive and receptive. I stayed with a family which also a great experience. Toledo is a great town that you can easily spend lots of time exploring.

Great week in Toledo and at Aula Toledo

A fantastic week all round! I live in Spain and have a fairly good command of the Spanish language, but I wanted to further improve my level, as well as consolidate what I already knew, and Aula Toledo certailny came up trumps. Cristina, my tutor, quickly spotted where I needed to improve and created a course especially to suit my needs. Lessons were fun and engaging, and I now feel far moire confident. Nothing was too much trouble and all the staff were willing to go the extra mile to help with any queries. I can thoroughly recommend Aula Toledo, where, whatever your level, you will be treated and catered for as an individual. Toledo itself is a beautiful city, oozing with culture, history, and great restaurants. You will not be disappointed

Totalmente recomendado!!

I recently spent one week studying in Aula Toledo to prepare for my B2 DELE exam. On my first day I was made feel very welcome by the Director, Maite. I was provided with information about my classes prior to arriving in Toledo but I was also provided with tourist information on Toledo when I arrived along with a map which was much needed! My teacher, Isabel was always very well organised and has a real talent for explaining the rules to Spanish grammar! I found classes to be fun, interactive and I learned a lot everyday. I also had some classes with Cristina who was as fun and organised and had also spent some time in my home city in Ireland! What is very clear is the passion and interest that all staff have for the Spanish language and to provide an incredible service by making their students feel comfortable in this warm learning environment. I stayed with a host family for the week. Emilio and Marigel made me feel very welcome and at home. Marigel collected me from the train station when I arrived and gave me a walking tour of the area. Each night Marigel made a traditional Spanish dinner and I was encouraged to speak as much as I could with my host family. I spent each day, after class, walking around Toledo which is such a beautiful city. I also studied in the library which I found to be very quiet. I can not recommend Aula Toledo enough. It was money well spent and such an enjoyable experience.

Not like other schools

Aula Toledo is different: it delivers on its promise.

We’ve all experienced other language schools. Schools where lazy teachers run through the programme with weary indifference. Schools where the accommodation is basic and the food miserable. Where your host family is disengaged and conversation limited or non-existent.

Aula Toledo is none of these things. The teachers are enthusiastic and present their classes with imagination and flair. The host families provide excellent accommodation and engage enthusiastically with students. The school provides the perfect environment for learning Spanish.

I have now spent two study periods of over a month at Aula Toledo and each has been a marvellous experience. My Spanish has improved dramatically and I have formed lasting friendships with my host families.

There is no better place to learn Spanish.
