I had an amazing experience at Academia Uruguay! For me it was the best way to learn castellano from its source and take part in the life of the porteños. The entire staff was very competent, dedicated and friendly. They made me feel comfortable by being interested in my country and by personally looking after me during my whole stay in Montevideo. I took group classes for about 6 weeks combined with one on one sessions. I very much enjoyed their regular activities, such as excursions and bike tours.
Now when I look back I am very grateful to the entire team of Academia! They helped me to overcome my speaking anxiety and develop the confidence to have conversations with locals. For me it was very important to be able to communicate with the locals (especially since I wanted to discover Latin America afterwards). Thanks to my Spanish I was able to make friendships and I can't wait to be back!
There is another bunch of positive points about the school (location, teachers, atmosphere, books), and I recommend Academia Uruguay to anyone without any second thoughts!
