don Quijote students are people from all over the world who spend a very important part of their lives with us. We have dedicated this section of our website to say thanks to all of them and to let you read about their experiences.
My time at don Quijote has allowed me to deepen my understanding of the Spanish language and culture. It has been an enriching experience which I will never forget and I would love to return in the future.
I had plenty of opportunities to contribute to group discussions and I was growing in confidence in my ability to speak Spanish. Learning a language in the country in which it is spoken is the most effective way to learn and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested!
Studying Spanish at don Quijote made me understand the language and the Spanish culture more. The Spanish classes encouraged me to talk with more confidence. The courses were very intensive and the teachers were always helpful. I made friends from all over the world, with whom I am still in contact with!

Students will receive keys and will have the liberty to come and go as they please. They can also receive calls during their stay.
Choose from various meal regimes during your stay with a host family: breakfast only, half board (breakfast + lunch or dinner) or full board (three meals a day).

A university residence hall offers students the possibility to live with Spaniards who are also living and studying in the city as students. They are usually university run and are large in size. Student residences are smaller residences which may be very similar to living in large shared apartments with the main difference being that students will not be responsible for preparing their own food. These residences are open to students from all over the world, not necessarily studying at don Quiojte.
We understand that some of our students may want to maintain a certain level of privacy and standard of living while they study Spanish abroad. With this need in mind, we offer the possibility of renting a full apartment during your stay.
We offer two types of private centrally located apartments in various sizes: standard or premium.
A standard private apartment is a basic student apartment which a student can fully rent out as a private apartment. A premium apartment offers higher-end furnishings and amenities than those offered in standard apartments. Our premium private apartments also include Internet/WiFi access and a weekly cleaning service.
