How do we teach?

A few words from Estefanía, Director of Spanish
“We believe our students learn best through a practical and personal approach. At EUROACE we achieve this by teaching interactive and interesting classes, making sure they are specific to each student and student group.  
We rely on our experienced teachers to follow our general syllabus but we also adapt classes to the needs, interests and abilities of the students. Our students are the focal point. We try to understand their strengths and weaknesses from day one and build our classes with their success in mind.  
Personally, I love to teach in a practical way, teaching complex things like grammar, sentence structures, and pronunciation within context. This means students come away from the class with a better ability to use Spanish in everyday life, and they enjoy the process too!”

Why Valencia?

Valencia is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe – if you don’t believe us, you’ll just have to come and see for yourself!
To describe Valencia in a few words is hard.  It’s Mediterranean location gives the whole city a beach vibe, not to mention the year round sunny weather, palm trees, and glorious beaches.
It boasts modern architecture alongside ancient monuments and classic buildings. Valencia is home to just under 1 million residents, giving it a cosmopolitan feel yet a feel for local Spanish life at the same time.
It’s a favorite among international students and there is so much to see and do when you visit Valencia!
