I read a review above that sums it all up really. Where the teachers may be lovely and actually rather good at teaching, the inherent lack of customers means you are put in a group that is well below your level and spend a lot of time learning the basics. The office is a bit of a joke as well,... More

I found learning Spanish as an immersion experience quite difficult. There was a great deal of support and the teachers were fantastic. The organised tours were excellent. I suggest that during the time you are a student you don't schedule much else! It is important to do the homework and put a lot of effort into learning. There is no... More

I wish I could write two separate reviews for Babylon idiomas: One for the teaching staff and one for the rest. The teachers were way above average (of what I have experienced in many other language schools). I stayed for four weeks, so I had a lot of different teacher. Of couse, some of them were not very motivated, but... More

Babylon Barcelona is in a good location, with helpful and enthusiastic staff and interesting classes. I did the intensive course - 6 hours a day with culture classes and conversation classes and I had a brilliant time. We learned a lot of interesting things, and all classes were in spanish, which gives a great feeling of achievement- to know youve... More

I did a one week intensive course here, including a private 1:1 class for medical Spanish. It was a wonderful learning experience; the intermediate intensive class I was in was quite enjoyable and fun. The instructors were great and very helpful as well as the staff. Even the lady downstairs in the building was very helpful: she gave me instructions,... More

I attended a basic intensive course at Babylon Idiomas for 4 weeks; I am a beginners' beginner when it comes to Spanish. I chose Babylon because of these factors: City and location of school, flexibility of course schedule, competitive pricing. In addition, I was most impressed with the help given by the enrollment staff when I called them while I... More

I chose Babylon Idiomas Barcelona from among the many choices in the city, primarily because of its convenient location and competitive pricing. In two weeks I learned and practiced a lot of Spanish and was extremely encouraged in my langage learning! I truly hope to return because of the excellent teachers and the overall atmosphere of the school. There are... More

I was at Babylon Idiomas Barcelona for three weeks. The school is very conveniently located. It's only on street away from a metro station and two to three street from the busting Passeig de Garcia. I had studied twice a week for one year in Bangkok but did not get very far. At Babylon Idiomas I had learned more than... More

I visited the school for 8 weeks for an intensive course and it was absolutely worth it. The teachers are dedicated to their jobs, the whole learning atmosphere was great and I learnt a lot during those weeks. My classmates were great and I found a lot of new friends there. I highly recommend this school to everybody who wants... More

I spent a week doing an intensive spanish course at Babylon Idiomas in Barcelona in January 2012. The teachers are of a very high calibre, and create a fun environment for learning.
