9 + 1 reasons to study Spanish in Valencia

1. Weather

In Valencia, we have more than 300 days of sunshine and more than 2,500 hours of natural light per year. Maybe that’s why Valencians like to spend a lot of time outdoors, and maybe that’s also why they are open and welcoming.

2. Location

Valencia has a unique location. One of its main attractions is its proximity to the sea. We have several urban beaches where you can stroll, play sports, relax or, weather permitting, take a dip.

3. Size

Not to brag, but our city is a perfect size: it is big enough to be cosmopolitan and small enough to be very family-friendly. And it has all the amenities – you’ll have everything you need!

Here you can study scientific and technical subjects (engineering, architecture, biotechnology, medicine, etc.) as well as humanities and arts (history, philology, philosophy, fine arts, etc.).

Valencian gastronomy is an emblem of “Mediterranean cuisine”. One of the best-known dishes is paella, famous the world over. In Valencia, it is also common to go out for tapas and “lunch” (esmorzaret). In addition, our city also has restaurants serving creative and avant-garde cuisine.

Some of Valencia’s popular festivals are renowned all over the world. The most important are the Fallas, which are held in March and fill the streets with large paper-mâché monuments, light and colour.

I had an absolutely amazing time at Taronja!! I loved my four weeks here (May-June 2019)! I felt that I managed to learn loads in the short time that I was here - the school was very professional and organised, providing lots of excellent resources to aid learning! The lessons were very interactive and always lots of fun - loads of opportunities to practise speaking! Also, the social side was superb - every day there was at least one optional social activity organised, often more! I would love to return one day in the future! A big thank you to all the amazing people here! 🙂

I would highly recommend this language school, with its competent teachers who are innovative and interested in their students. The material used is always of an excellent standard. The school has two bright buildings and there is a calendar of events each week both for students attending and those taking classes online.

La scuola numero 1 a Valencia Scuola eccellente con uno staff preparato e cordiale sempre pronto ad aiutarti per ogni necessità. Gli insegnanti sono tutti molto bravi, disponibili e simpatici. La struttura e moderna e funzionale con aule dotate di lavagne elettroniche, ipads e sala comune con computer. La scuola inoltre organizza attività molto belle e coinvolgenti, tra cui: lezioni di cucina spagnola, escursioni e paella di benvenuto. Sono stato alla Taronja per 4 settimane nelle quali ho migliorato molto il mio livello di spagnolo e conosciuto gente splendida. La consiglio vivamente a chiunque sia interessato a imparare lo spagnolo a Valencia

Оно того стоит Были каникулы в университете, и решила на недельку поехать в Испанию,заодно и испанский получить. Очень классный опыт, даже за неделю я почувствовала, как мой испанский с почти нуля дотянули до основ. Очень вдохновляющие, разные совершенно люди из разных стран были в классах и на мероприятиях, много классных знакомств случилось. Если хотите много практиковать испанский, то вперёд. Ещё в семью заселитесь - не будете говорить ни на русском ни английском вообще. Я общалась с хост мамой с помощью переводчика на телефоне
Учителя преподают не скучно. Мероприятия не дают сидеть дома.
Единственный минус то, что иногда учишься по вечерам, мне было очень тяжело.
И, конечно, самое грустное - уехать после одной недели. Кто-то приезжает на 3 месяца, кто-то на 6,кто-то переехал совсем. А ты погружаешься в эту атмосферу и уезжаешь через неделю. 🙁

Estupenda escuela, amables profesores, muchas actividades y una experiencia de vida fenomenal! I did an intensive course at Taronja last summer and all I can say is it was an amazing, unforgettable experience. Everything is organised very well, relaxed study environment and a certain way to make you love the language even more. Very sociable, amusing and the location is just perfect. Not to mention that Valencia is such a lovely place that since then I have been dreaming of moving there for good. I will definitely do a course there again and I would recommend it to everyone :-)))
