Activities every day

Each week we offer a range of optional activities included in your course. They are designed to help you practice your Spanish outside the classroom, and to get to know your classmates and teachers. They are carried out by our teachers and are basically free. Some of these didactic activities are: language exchanges, cooking classes, culture classes, Walk and Learn routes, welcome paella…

Welcome paella party

At the beginning of each week, we always celebrate our evening with a welcome paella. All the students of the school and the teachers meet and enjoy a Valencian paella. This is a perfect way to meet your classmates and teachers in a relaxed atmosphere. Everyone is invited! But remember, it is essential to speak Spanish. Otherwise, you will not eat paella?

Language exchange

One of the activities we frequently organize is a language exchange so that you can speak Spanish with native speakers. There you will meet Spanish people and be able to practice what you have learned in class. At the same time you will help them to learn your language. The best way to practice Spanish and make friends with Valencia!

The teachers are amazing and the job the interns do with the activities is just as amazing. I spent 3 months there and I could not had imagined doing anywhere else. Many great and exciting activities, the best Paella

Walk & Learn

Have fun and discover the most important, symbolic buildings of Valencia’s city centre, and be entertained at the same time as you continue to learn Spanish along our marvellous routes.

Spanish cooking lessons

Every week you can attend a Spanish cooking class where you will learn, in the most fun way, to make different recipes of the Spanish gastronomy with the great Chef Nando!

Other weekly activities at extra cost

At TARONJA school, apart from the didactic and social activities included in the courses, which we have explained above, we organize many other activities during the week, such as: flamenco, tapas route, parties, dinners, cinema, theatre... We try to give our students something to do every day. Thanks to this, Taronja students will have many possibilities to get to know each other, and also the city of Valencia better, whilst practicing Spanish. These activities are optional and have an extra price, but always very reasonable and economical.

Spanish culture class

Another educational activity that we like very much is the classes on different aspects of Spanish and Hispanic culture. Be it the about most important cultural figures, the most symbolic locations, most important cities, most famous traditions and fiestas, cinema, art, or music that characterises us...

Weekends

Every weekend, we organize different activities, for example, trips to historical or touristics towns near Valencia, like Xàtiva, Sagunto, Peñíscola. We also organice trips to the La Albufera, Cullera Valencian beaches. We love to attend popular festivals, music concerts, clubs and fairs. Valencia is a county where there is a lot to do so we try not to miss anything!

I spent a fantastic week at Taronja in May 2019. The booking process was really straightforward (and I appreciated being able to sort out my accommodation through the school too) albeit a little embarrassing when recording a video of myself to have my level assessed 🙈. The booking information I received indicated that someone would be there to greet me at the accommodation upon arrival, but this wasn't the case – I didn't mind though because I'm a grown up and don't really need looking out for like that. The teachers and supporting staff were really friendly and helpful. The classes were challenging and taught entirely in Spanish, which I think is really beneficial and, for the level I was at (~B1), falling back to English shouldn't really be necessary. In the week I was there we alternated between days studying grammar (the present subjunctive) and more 'relaxing' days where we dived deeper into other topics such as ser/estar and por/para (though I would have been happier doing even more grammar studies, but maybe I'm just a glutton for punishment). I think what really stood out about my week at Taronja was the effort put into the social activities. There were things to do every evening and a weekend excursion had been organized too (but unfortunately I had to fly home that day and couldn't attend), so even if you arrive as a solo learner/traveller, you'll be able to find people to hang out with fairly quickly. In case it isn't clear, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend studying at Taronja, however I feel that attending for 1 week simply wasn't enough. Many of the people I met were staying for any amount of time from 3 weeks to 3 months. It's for this reason that I intend to return to Taronja next month for 2 weeks to try and really press on with improving my Spanish (and escape the miserable Dutch summer).

La escuela estaba muy divertida, había actividades cada día y los personas que vienen son muy simpática. De verdad la experiencia estuvo fantástico y mi español ha mejorado mucho, yo sé necesito mejorar más pero si yo pude quedar más tiempo en esta escuela yo tendría fluidez español rápido.

If I can learn Spanish then anyone can! In a space of 6 weeks I went from saying "sin comentarios" in class to speaking short sentences with lovely regular, irregular and reflexive verbs ?. Teachers and administration staff are professional, friendly and supportive. I am going to miss my "chitty chats" with the Reception desk ?

I enjoyed my week very much but should have joined in more of the social activities! Also I think a week is too short as most other students were there for much longer but that was not possible for me Since returning back to my weekly class on Zoom, I am speaking much better so thank you ! Staff were lovely ....

4 week intensive course I spent 4 weeks at Taronja on their intensive course (20hrs/week with 4hrs of lessons each day). Class times alternated between the morning and afternoon which meant plenty of free time to enjoy the city. The teachers made sure lessons were interesting and varied, and organised lots of different activities during the evenings at which you were encouraged to practice speaking Spanish. I would highly recommend Taronja!
