Instituto Hemingway Reviews

learning Spanish in real Spain

I had a fun learning experience at Instituto Hemingway, Bilbao It was wonderful to have teachers that taught in Spanish only and since the classes are small, I had many opportunities to practice my conversational skills. They also provide a wide variety of activities & day trips to see the beautiful country of Spain! I would highly recommend Instituto Hemingway.

Best Spanish School ever

I would recommend this school to everyone interested in learning Spanish in Bilbao. I had a wonderful experience with Guadalupe, that is a teacher in Instituto Hemingway.
This school also organise extra activities, that from my point of view have been important to a faster learning. The classes were intensive and well programmed! The leaning environment was great and productive. Oscar & other teachers were amazing in organising classes , i still impressed. Wish all the best

Fantastic Experience!

I highly recommend this school. It truly distinguishes itself from other language schools. I spent 3 months at the school and thus encountered 3 different teachers all of whom where fantastic teachers, truly. Moreover, the school offers daily activities which alows you to really get to know the other students, leading to a 'family' and secure feeling within the school!

Incredible Company

I will always remember the moment in which I came across the the Cervantes Institute and my time studying at Instituto Hemingway. The chance to be endorsed by them inspired me to pass my language course as they are eminent educators of Spanish. I received my certification and not only that, but the opportunity to be part of a great team that every day encourages the good use of Spanish. Instituto Hemingway's courses and programs at very reasonable good prices in Spain. I would highly recommended Instituto Hemingway to students from different countries around the world - the experience and the company is great!
