This has been a long-cherished wish of mine to go to Andalusia and to learn Flamenco dancing. I have been at Escuela Carmen de las Cuevas to participate in a beginners class in September 2013 for 3 weeks. I can only recommend to do this. The classes are well organized and you meet like minded people from all over the... More

I had taken years of Spanish in high school and college but these courses were by far the best. The classes were really small and the teachers were very enthusiastic.

I just got back from a two week stay at Carmen de las Cuevas. My reasons for attending were exclusively for improving my Spanish (which is at a B1/B2 level). Each day started with a 1/2 warm up class, followed by a 1 1/2 hour grammar class , where we were only 3 - 4 students. Then a 1 1/2... More

Lovely setting with great views. Nice to see the caves presented in such a delightful way. If you don't like walking up hill get the city minibus up to the top and walk down

Escuela Carmen de las Cuevas arranged such a great two weeks for me in Grananda! Every day we had spanish and flamenco courses. Every night flamenco shows, tapas and drinks. It was an awesome experience. I picked up some spanish grammar and words, some new flamenco techniques and falsetas and made some new friends.

I took beginner level Spanish along with Flamenco guitar in May 2014 at Escuela Carmen de las Cuevas. I spent a month there and I don't have enough words to say just how amazing they were! My expectations were exceeded by a huge margin. I learned more Flamenco guitar in a short period than I ever thought possible. I learned... More

I had an amazing time at Carmen de las Cuevas! My beginners tecnnique and choroegraphy classes were both challenging and inspiring, the accommodation provided was comfortable and our living area a great place to meet and socialise with others at the school. Staff made it easy (and more affordable with the school discounts!) to book for some of the fabulous... More

I wanted to learn more Spanish and this school was recommended by a friend. Teachers are excellent and some excursions and other program was also arranged for the students. I will go there again as Granada is also a wonderful city.
