I have taken 10 months' 《intensive class》here during one year and a half,from zero of Spainsh. I've met my favourite Spanish teacher and a very nice group of friends.3 months ago I past DELE B1 and will do B2 in two o three months.I should mention that I am Chinese, Spanish is so different from my mother tongue.But thanks to my teachers and classmates that now I can hold my daily life ,travel,make friends in the Spanish world.

The class was interesting from the beginning.It seemed that we learnt when we were playing.Then we learnt more gramma and vocabulary while shared different culture and personal experience.Therefore,as all the teachers and students should speak only spainish,I think we practiced more listening and speaking at the class.For me,it was not that easy ,especially with Europeans because they learnt so fast that sometimes I felt frustrated.But all the teachers and classmates who were so nice always encouraged me and made me relax and enjoy my study.Little by little,I am not afraid any more of making mistakes o asking questions.And studying Spanish becomes a happy travel of everyday. recently we talk more about politics and the society which make me think more and learn more.I am afraid that I have made a great progress(lol)...

Above all,I gained not only an ability of speaking a language but also an excellent experience of studying with lovely guys from all of the world.What's more,you can know a local Barcelona^_^

¡No lo pierdas!

最后还是要用母语写几句给同胞.我这么深情并茂用我的破英语写了这一串是因为我真的很喜欢这个学校和这里的人.不仅仅是老师,有趣的同学也很重要,课堂上爆笑连连是常有的噢~不是排排坐记笔记那种.但是要提一句,开始一上来就直接西语讲课了所以对我们来说多少会有点不适应,我的建议是自学发音和A1的一些单词然后再上课,会适应很多的.
location:really Centro of BCN,just at the exit of metro "Passeig de Gracia",no far from Plaza Catalunya.

school:clean,lovely,bright...

Class: less than 10 persons,normally there are more o less 5 students in one class.

The best:the staff
just a suggestion for Chinese friends because the culture is different from which in China .报名以后一般上课日期就不允许改变了,请假什么的也是不给补课的,钱也不会退.另外,一年里有那么两三天是红日,几乎全体歇业学校也不例外,这一天也是不上课但不退钱的.如果在意,最好事先问清所报课程期间会不会遇到公众假期,可以避开.

Version Original is a small language school situated smack bang in the centre of beautiful Barcelona. I spent 2 weeks doing an intensive course in Spanish here and my only regret is that I could not stay for longer.

The teaching was exceptional, with formal lessons in grammar and verb structure integrated seamlessly into fluid conversation. This facilitated a dynamic learning experience, in which you were given the opportunity to learn not just from a textbook, but from your own conversations in the classroom.

Class sizes were small (3 students) which allowed for very personalised teaching and plenty of opportunity for conversation. However, class sizes may be bigger depending on the season. The atmosphere was open and friendly, and everyone there makes you feel like you are a part of the school. Everything was extremely well organised and all of the staff were friendly and efficient.

Once per week, we met somewhere in Barcelona (usually in parks used mostly by locals) for our class. Asides from being a great learning tool, these excursions were a lot of fun and were also a brilliant opportunity to get to know the other students and the staff better.

I stayed in accomodation organised through the school which I can also highly recommend - living in a Spanish household gives you an opportunity to practice what you are learning in the classes.

In summary, I cannot recommend this school enough. I look forward to coming back here; hopefully it will be someday soon!
Great teaching, really friendly staff, fun classes in the park, small class sizes

I highly recommend this school Version Original

by Zoe
Course details: 1 weeks, 20 hours/week, , October 2015
I have done three separate spells at Version Original school to improve my Spanish and I have since recommended the school to many friends and acquaintances.

I was very impressed by the excellent teachers who are friendly, committed and knowledgeable. They teach with such enthusiasm that it really is fun and highly effective. In one week of classes I could feel such improvement! The class sizes have always been quite small and very diverse yet friendly, and I've enjoyed meeting people from all over the world.

The location is ideal and the premises are really well-equipped with some refreshments available, air conditioning and even books and DVDs available for rental. Various social events take place and I was made to feel so welcome by staff and fellow students.

Really I can't fault Version Original at all, and I hope to do a couple more weeks of classes soon.
Enthusiastic and experienced teachers who make classes fun and stimulating
I can't think of any!

Amazing experience, great welcome in Barcelona. Version Original

by Ruud, 30 years old from Barcelona, Spain
Course details: 17 weeks, 15 hours/week, , June 2015
On and off I took classes at Version Original for almost half a year (4 months without breaks). They helped me with my Spanish to such an extend that I can perfectly get around in Spanish in Barcelona today. I find their teaching methods very pleasant. Most teachers talk with their hands and whole body, through which it is very easy to understand Spanish directly, without using any external language. On top of that, the teachers have a very good way of contacting with the students and adapting their method/tone/pace to them. All and all, it was a very pleasant experience going here every day and I couldn't have done it without them. Thank you so much guys! :-)
Friendly Staff, great teaching methods, very personal

el curso me ha gustado mucho. He tenido muchas oportunidades diferentes para aprender: hablar, conversar, hacer actividades, también por la calle (sitios de interés, mercados..), de verdad que el curso está organizado muy bien!
Los profesores son preparados, amables y muy simpaticos, te hacen sentir comodo y además es muy divertido.
Además la posición de la escuela es perfecta, central, cerca de tiendas, y al lado del metro.
Quizá volveré..
los profesores amables y divertidos, la posición d la escuela, el hambiente 'familiar', el metodo de enseñar.
