Great teachers but this school is going out of business. The Barcelona school isn't paying their teachers and, as a result, they are on strike - only working Tuesday - Thursday. Avoid at all costs!! Its a shame since their teachers are all good and deserve better!

The teachers at this school (at least in Valencia) are on indefinite strike after not having been paid for the last several months´ work. If you book this school you will not receive your classes and it is unclear whether we will receive our money back. Disaster. Choose a different school! In addition, they will not confirm any of this... More

The teachers at this school are wonderful but unfortunately it might not be around for much longer. At the moment there are only classes Tuesday to Thursday because the teachers are on strike Monday and Friday, the reason being is that they haven't been paid for months. It is still possible to pay for courses in the future, but this... More

The teachers are on strike on my very first day of class due to the fact that they have not been paid since December (almost three months). Therefore no class took place. I undestand the teachers but what I don't understand is that the owner does not pay them. This will be my last language class at Babylon.

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

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
