The best bookshops in Valencia

Bookshops are small temples of curiosity and knowledge where lovers of reading and writing can spend hours and hours dreaming.

Many of them are part of our lives, as we have visited them as children, teenagers and adults, which gives them a truly unique charm. Moreover, they do not only sell books: many of them have become cultural spaces and organise presentations, writing workshops, exhibitions and so on.

My experience with Taronja School in Valencia was a positive one without any exception. The teachers were very well-trained and well-prepared, the lessons in perfect-sized groups interesting as well as creatively organized and the activities varied, informative and entertaining. Furthermore the school offers a library as well as some DVDs to practice your spanish at home. Regarding any wish or request the employees of Taronja were more than willing to assist or to help. They were constantly trying their best to keep their students happy and satisfied. I highly recommend Taronja to everybody who wants to learn spanish in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere with a lot of professionals to help you to reach your highest personal results in this new language.

Taronja is a wonderful place to be. The atmosphere is pleasant, always a friendly and warm welcome and it makes it easy to feel at home in Valencia. I like the style of teaching at Taronja: it is innovative and creative. The people at Taronja are passionate about their work, are in it with their hearts and love to teach. I benefited a lot from the special combination of learning a language and exploring the culture with all my senses (e.g. cooking class). I can warmly recommend Taronja...

I spent 3 months at the Taronja School and had the best time ever! I started from scratch but the school and its methods taught me Spanish very well. You can make a lot of friends through the activities and experience a lot of culture for a small price. I'd recommend going there for your Spanish studies as well as for the fun.

Superb course and lovely teachers, willing to give you their time and attention to solving complicated questions and issues within the Castellano Spanish language. Really benefited from this course. It has a more speaking approach instead of an examination. They want you to be fluent not pass a test.

Aprender Español en Valencia Esta escuela es una lugar muy estructivo. Los profesores son pacientes, divertidas y estan explicando la lengua español muy bien. La escuela organiza actividades culturales después las lecciones. El deficio está en la centra de la ciudad y es muy preciosa, hay muchos restaurantes cerca de la escuela. Me encanta mucho esta escuela.
