This school and it's partner school Don Quixote, are a waste of MONEY!!!! Their websites boast that their teachers are all university educated and speaks multiple foreign languages, FALSE! Most of the teachers do not, which is not a problem unless you are the in beginner's level like I was. None of the staff members did either, making inquiring about anything (school related, accommodation, or even excursions) very difficult. The Spanish teachers are out of work Spaniards that can't find a job in their field of study during the country's Economic Crisis, therefore will take this teaching job that only pays them 8Euros/hr. And their work ethic reflects their wages. I had a teacher that sat in her chair just talking to the students about their weekend, and when she's ask to spell anything out, she'll just pronounce it really slowly. When you asked her to slow down (the Spanish have a reputation for speaking fast), she'll yell at you and say that, "this is how Spanish people speak and if you were going to live here, you will have to catch up"!. Remember, this is a beginner's course and you are paying thousands of dollars to take lesson from this person. When I complained about it, they just said they spoke to her and apologizes on her behalf. That's it, that's how much my thousands of dollars paid for.

SAVE YOUR MONEY! There are so many accredited language schools out there all over Spain that are much MUCH cheaper and much better in quality. Enforex & Don Quixote care more about showing the students a good time through the many planned repeated excursions than in quality learning.

the low quality teachers: most don't really care

Actually I did go to Enforex Barcelona but to Enforex Madrid... but it was not suggested in the list. For speaking with other students who went to both, I know that they were exactly the same.

Maybe it would be quite fine to make Enforex students meet real Spanish students in order to improve even more the level of language.

My 11-yr old daughter attended this summer camp after studying Spanish in school for two years.  The program was a complete waste!  They do not do placements for kids under 13, so she was completely bored!  The brochure for English speaking parents make is sound like the child will be rooming with Spanish kids learning English, actually they room with kids from all over the world learning English - so Spanish is rarely spoken. 

The staff was very friendly, but there was way too much time spent "hanging out" and texting.  Everytime I visited the camp, there were loads of kids in the main hall on their phones.  The afternoon programs were great - but they keep the kids up until past 11pm and get them up at 7:30am - not enough sleep for most kids to be in the position of learning.

I would not recommend it for anyone under 13!

The Staff was very friendly and nice
Inconvénients
The actual language courses were very weak!  Furthermore, the program did not allow kids enough sleep to be able to be in a learning mode.  Also too much downtime given to kids to allow texting.

Sorry for my English (google translator). I left teh same review in other webs because this is what I think:

I'm French, but my mum was from Spain, she married with my French dad. I know some Spanish because my mum but she died and I don't want to forget my mother's language and I want to read in Spanish.

Enforex gave me all I wanted: good accomodation, good classes, good environment, good people. Everything was good for me. That was my experience. And I am not a child.

I went to Enforex Marbella last summer bt I can't find the page about it here, so i write in Barcelona. I can say the school and teachers are quite good and accommodation was quite comfortable, air conditioned (Marbella is hot!), clean and not too many people.
