What our students say
Ryan Parma. TEXAS USA
My time at the Delta has been one of the most influential and exciting periods in my life. That may sound like an over-exaggeration, but it's all true. From the time I arrived in Santander, I was taken in with so much respect and kindness that I knew this was going to be a great environment to learn. Immediately, I was put with a Spanish family that was the perfect fit for me, and the Spanish classes I started taking were spectacular. One of the best aspects of the Delta Language program is its emphasis on spoken Spanish. To me, this is so important. Anyone can learn how to write and understand another language's grammar, but to speak it, that's a whole other challenge. Delta pushed me to use my Spanish in every moment possible, therefore, I was able to leave the school with a much improved fluency and understanding of the language. Finally, the most important part about the Delta Language School that makes it perfect for any student is the staff. The Director, Head of Studies, and the teachers make sure that you are getting every opportunity to learn as much Spanish as you can while being extremely flexible in meeting your every need. I loved this program so much that I recommended it to one of my friends here in the U.S., and he ended up signing up immediately. I can't wait to return to Spain and revisit mi familia española there. I will never forget this experience.

Delta is a very serious school in the city center. My course for Dele preparation was very good and interesting. If you want to study Spanish in a very relaxing city full of beautiful beaches for surf lovers come to Delta.
Delta Language School ; una scuola seria nel centro della citta. Interessante anche il corso per preparale il DELE. La consiglio a chi voglia imparare lo spgnolo in una citta tranquilla e piene do spiagge per gli amanti del surf.

To improve my level of Spanish as fast as possible, I decided to book private lessons at Delta language School in Santander. My lessons exceed my expectations. Teachers were flexible, kind and very professional. Carmen, was always ready to help with good advice for extra curricula activities. Everyday we had various activities like concerts, conferences, presentations, art exhibitions , ... Best of all they were free! Santander is a beautiful city with nice beaches, parks and beautiful paths for walking. Wide network busses allow you to easily visit the Countryside. The school and the people of Santander are very welcoming. Progress is guaranteed !
Pour améliorer rapidement mon niveau d’espagnol, j’avais décidé de prendre des cours particuliers à Deltalang. Les cours ont été totalement conçus en fonction de mes objectifs. Les professeurs sont flexibles, attentifs et très pédagogues. Carmen est toujours prête à vous guider, conseiller pour les nombreuses activités extra scolaires. Tous les jours, diverses activités sont proposées (danse, musique, conférences …), dont la plupart gratuites. Santander est une ville très agréable qui possède de magnifiques plages, parcs et sentiers de randonnées. Un réseau de bus étendu vous permet de visiter la région très facilement. Vous serez chaleureusement accueillis à l’école et par les Espagnols en général. Progrès garantis !

Wonderful experience. The school is situated in the heart of Santander with plenty to do, see and enjoy. Throughout the course my Spanish has improved immensely and would highly recommend it. Effective teaching methods, with staff that are always willing to give a little extra in order to help the students.
Sandra Werner GERMANY
I really enjoyed my stay in Santander. The school was great and I learned a lot! I think all of them are wonderful persons and they really care for all the students. Moreover, the lessons were great. I especially liked the classes with Raquel because I think she is a great teacher and you can tell that she had fun teaching us. But the others are great teachers as well.
John Stroup Washington DC USA
I came to Delta after writing to several schools and they responded so pleasantly. I have been very pleased being here. All the other students were kind, serious and fun. Santander seems larger that it is since there are so many cultural activities and a huge night life. I loved dinners with other students, trips to the beach and the many spectacles and shows in the city I was in a shared apartment that was very comfortable and clean. I am happy to recommend this school.
Monica Lundin SWEDEN
Hello, "Hello, I spent two lovely weeks in Santander during July 2009. I felt that I really could combine efficient language learning and discovery of Santander and its region. The latter implies for instance enjoying breathtaking views over the Santander bay and strolling on the lovely beaches. Not to mention the good food you can have at the typical Spanish restaurants. My favourite was the fish restaurants located on some of the beautiful beaches. T he teachers at the school are very friendly and the combination of grammar lessons and conversation classes on various topics made the learning process more interesting and fun. I can recommend the school for anyone interested in learning Spanish as the organisation at the school is very flexible and adapted to your own needs. S o, good luck with the Spanish (and more) in Santander! Monica" .
"Hej, Jag tillbringarde två härliga veckor i Santander i juli 2009. Det är fullt möjligt att kombinera effektiv inlärning av språket och samtidigt upptäcka Santander med omnejd. Runtomkring Santander finns härliga stränder och fina öppna promenadstråk. Maten är fantastisk och jag tyckte särskilt om de fiskrätter som serveras på restaurangerna belägna vid havet. Lärarna på skolan är mycket vänliga och hjälpsamma. Undervisningen är uppdelad på grammatik och konversation kring olika ämnen. Detta gör att inlärningen känns lättsam och givande. För övrigt kan jag kan rekommendera skolan för alla som är intresserade av att lära sig spanska eftersom kursorganisationen är flexibel. Skolan kan arrangera ett kursprogram som passar just dig. L ycka till med spanskan och allt annat gott i Santander! Monica"
Larissa Andrade BRASIL
To study the language abroad it is the best experience that one can have. You have the opportunity to practice all the time and also learn about the culture of the country and of the region where you are. But what it is more important is to study in a place where they give you all the attention you need, not only like business, but personal relation. It was like that, during the weeks I spent in Delta Language School. Every morning we were welcome with a nice cup of hot tea, teachers were ready to teach us, help us and also willing to answer all our doubts about costumes and habits of Spanish people, as well as recommend interesting places to visit in Santander. It was a very important experience for me and basic to get my DELE Superior Diploma.
Estudar um idioma em seu país de origem é a melhor experiência que uma pessoa pode ter, já que se tem a oportunidade de praticar o tempo todo e também aprender sobre a cultura do país e da região. Mas ainda mais importante é estudar em uma escola onde te dão toda a atenção de que você precisa e a relação é pessoal – e não de negócios. Foi assim nas semanas que estive na Delta Language School: éramos recebidos com chá quente todas as manhãs e os professores estavam sempre prontos para nos ensinar, ajudar e também tirar nossas dúvidas sobre a cultura e hábitos dos espanhóis, além de recomendar lugares interessantes para conhecer em Santander. Foi uma experiência muito importante para meu aprendizado e para que eu fosse aprovada no exame DELE Superior
Gokalp Kahraman TURKEY
It was the summer of 2006 when I have been to this beautiful northern city of Spain, in Cantabria, called Santander... I always remember a lot of nice souvenirs : Delta , my family (Sra. Adelaida !! and her daughter and son, my sincere thanks to them), beautiful beaches, sun and sea, green colours of northern Spain. You can have nearby sight seeing opportunities in the region to the fantastic historical villages, natural beauties, and the big cities like San Sebastian or Bilbao… During my stay I also had the opportunity to make different friends from several countries and continents. Of course the most important thing is to learn Spanish, and I think Delta is the correct address for this. Thanks again to Carmen and Antonio for the good organization.
Ðspanya’nin kuzeyinde Cantabria bölgesinde, Santander isimli bu güzel sehirde 2006 senesi yazinda bulundum… Pek çok güzel anim söz konusu : Delta , yaninda kaldigim aile (Sra. Adelaida !! ve çocuklarina en samimi tesekkürlerimi iletirim), güzel plajlar, günes ve deniz, kuzey Ðspanya’nin yesil renkleri. Bölgede ayni zamanda çok enteresan tarihi köyleri, dogal güzellikleri ve San Sebastian ve Bilbao gibi büyük sehirleri gezme imkaniniz da olacaktir… Ayrica ziyaretim esnasinda degisik kita ve ülkelerden farkli arkadaslar ile tanisma firsati edindim. Tabii ki en önemlisi Ðspanyolca egitimi. Delta Language School’un bu konuda dogru adres oldugunu düsünüyorum. Carmen ve Antonio’ya güzel organizasyon için tekrar tesekkür ederim.
Natalia Graditskaya Ekaterinburg, RUSIA
The school is very great! Teachers are very helpful and nice. There is a very caring and personal relation to each student. The conditions to live in Santander are also very good to study and relax. This is a very good opportunity to learn Spanish, know the culture and traditions of Spain and also to speak to a very nice people in Santander. I have very good memories. Thank very much ! I hope to see you again
Peter Vanham NETHERLAND
To learn Spanish in Santander is highly recommended. The combination of intense and professionally guided lessons on one hand, and an immersion in the culture of this authentic Spanish port on the other hand. It was possible for me only in a few weeks time, to progress much in my Spanish language skills. Add to that the friendly and helpful guidance and the opportunity to sunbathe on one of the many beaches Cantabria has - not to mention the excursions to nature or culture places such as Cabarceno and Bilbao – and now you know how useful you can spend your next vacation.
Spaans leren in Santander is een echte aanrader. Door de combinatie van intense en professioneel begeleide lessen aan de ene kant en een onderdompeling in de cultuur van deze authentieke Spaanse havenstad aan de andere kant, was het voor mij mogelijk om in slechts enkele weken tijd veel vooruitgang te boeken in mijn Spaanse taalkennis. Voeg daar de vriendelijke en behulpzame begeleiding en de mogelijkheid tot zonnen aan een van de vele stranden aan toe – om nog te zwijgen van uitstappen naar natuurpark Cabarceno of cultuurstad Bilbao - en je weet hoe je je volgende vakantie nuttig kan besteden.
Katia Darwish QATAR
I came to this school several times because I love it. The first time Carmen was so nice with me that I felt it was my second home. Teachers are very good they really know their staff. Dinners on Friday night is a great laugh. Definitely the atmosphere couldn’t be more relaxed. I will keep coming!
Joechen Giese GERMANY
After two weeks in your language-Institute I´m back again in Germany - welcomed by typical October-weather. It was a pleasure to take part in your Spanish-classes which have been very interesting for me. Learning in small groups made it easy to socialize and to participate. Using my Spanish actively just came natural under those circumstances. It was a pleasure to be integrated by intelligent and qualified teachers. Your open and friendly team made it easy to feel at home right from the start. Hoping to come back and wishing you all the best for the future
Nach zwei sehr interessanten Wochen in Ihrem Institut bin ich nun wieder zurück in Deutschland und leide unter dem typischen Oktoberwetter mit viel Regen. Der Spanisch-Kurs in Ihrem Institut hat mir sehr gut gefallen und war für mich sehr interessant. Die kleinen Gruppen ermöglichten es mir, mich jederzeit gut einbringen zu können und meine Sprachkenntnisse aktiv zu trainieren. Ich habe es sehr genossen von intelligenten und qualifizierten Lehrkräften auf herzliche Weise in die Gruppen integriert zu werden. Ich fand Sie alle sehr sympatisch und wünsche Ihnen für die Zukunft alles Gute. Bis zum nächsten Mal
Margret Ludvisksdottir ICELAND
For personal reasons I could only spend one week at the Delta Language School in Santander. I had no previous knowledge of Spanish, but by the time I left, after only 20 hours of lessons, I felt I had learned very much. One reason for this is that the classes are small and the teachers are therefore able to interact with all the students. Another reason for this is that the teachers approach the subject each in a different way, each applying different method, so that the classes are never monotonous. Finally I would like to stress that the atmosphere is personal and both teachers and staff seem to take real interest in what they are doing.
Monica Strassen GERMANY
I very much enjoyed beautiful Santander and the language course at “Delta”. Since I took the course during wintertime, the group of students was small and thanks to the very professional teaching I made great effort in understanding the language. Thanks to Estella, who very enthusiastically brought us close to nature, history and literature of Cantabria. As well I very much appreciated the warm and helpful hand given in any cases of daily life here in Santander.
Mein Kus in der Delta Sprachenschule und Santander haben mir sehr gefallen. Da ich den Kurs im Winter belegt habe, die Gruppe klein war und der Unterricht sehr professionel abgeholten wurde, konnte ich sehr gute Fortschritte im Spanischen machen. Darueber hinaus hat Estella uns mit viel Enthusiasmus Cantabrien, seine Natur, Geschichte und Literatur nahe gebracht. Sehr angenehm ist, dass bei den kleinen Problemen des Alltags und des Eingewoehnens hier in Santander immer eine hilfreiche Hand zugegen ist.
Marlene Ammon AUSTRIA
Summer 2005 I decided to improve my level of Spanish a bit, and therefore packed my bags, heading fort the wonderful North of Spain, SANTANDER, in the heart of Cantabria. DELTA Language Schools gave me an ideal possibility to improve my level dramatically. Not only caring teachers and small groups of students, but also good books and the best surroundings a student could wish for, contributed to my success. You should also bear in mind that everything around you is Spanish, AND I JUST LOVED EVERY SINGLE SECOND OF IT. I definitely fell in love with the beautiful city, the landscapes, the Spanish traditions and mentality, and last but not least the Spanish cuisine. By the end of the 5 weeks of class, I was able to have fluent conversations and to watch TV. ONE THING IS FOR SURE: THIS CITY IS GOING TO SEE ME AGAIN!!
Im Sommer 2005 beschloss ich, dass mein Spanisch ein bisschen aufgebessert werden könnte und ich mich somit sofort aufmachte ins Herzen Cantabrias, ins wunderschöne Santander. DELTA Language Schools gab mir die Möglichkeit mein Level drastisch zu verbessern. Unsere Lehrer die sich herzlich um uns bemühten, kleine Lerngruppen und gute Grammatikbücher trugen sehr viel zu diesem Lernerfolg bei. Weiters sollte man auch bedenken, dass einfach ALLES herum Spanisch ist. EINFACH PERFECTO! Ich habe mich während meines Aufenthalts in die wunderschöne Stadt, die Landschaften, die spanischen Traditionen, die Mentalität und nicht zu guter Letzt auch in die Köstlichkeiten verliebt. EINES IST SICHER: SANTANDER SIEHT MICH BESTIMMT WIEDER!
Pascale Dessennes FRANCE
Hello, I am a 40 years old woman a little demanding. I needed to learn Spanish but didn’t want to get bored. I wanted to enjoy, travel and discover Cantabria’s culture. Everything happened thanks to the dynamic teachers and good advices from the Head of Studies. I had a very good time!
"Bonjour ! je suis une femme d'un peu plus de 40 ans, un brin exigeante... Je voulais étudier l'espagnol mais ne pas m'ennuyer dans son apprentissage. Je désirais voyager, découvrir la culture cantabrique et me reposer. Cette expérience, j'ai pu la vivre grâce aux dynamisme des professeurs et aux conseils de Carmen. J'ai passé du bon temps !"
Steven Kennington II LAS VEGAS USA
My experience in Santander is one that I would classify as life changing. The Delta gave me the resources needed to enhance my Spanish skills as well as enjoy my time in one of Spain’s most elegant and fascinating cities. The staff was nothing but attentive to any questions, concerns, or comments, and in addition, they exceeded far beyond my expectations. I have studied in Spain before with other language schools, however the Delta, to me, felt more personal and warm welcoming. They hosted excursions as a school to historical sites in Spain, which improved the relationships between the staff and students. To say the least, I felt so pleased with the Delta and I would recommend them, without doubt. The Delta Language School is now my home away from home!
Claudia Brunner SWITZERLAND
I came to Santander just for a few weeks and I stayed for a long time. It was more than one reason to staying here. I loved the beaches and the possibility to go surfing, surrounding by a beautiful landscape where I relaxed a lot. The people also help me. But I would especially mention the good atmosphere at Delta and all the effort of the teachers and staff, to make students feel comfortable. They gave me a lot of possibilities to be able to realize my desires and always with very flexible solutions. I have learnt a lot of Spanish without a strict program. I felt all the time comfortable and if I come back to Spain I will choose again Delta at Santander.
Robin Connolly ALASKA USA
Everybody at the Delta makes you feel right at home. They go out of their way to help you in any way possible. I felt totally comfortable. I especially like the way all the students get to share the culture of Spain. The people at the Delta School make it easy. Accommodation staying with a family gives you the opportunity to practice Spanish daily in al the activities of everyday life. You can also get to experience a variety of Spanish cuisine lessons. Students work together in group activities, where they can express themselves in an atmosphere of camaraderie. The activities in the class are varied and what is concerned can be used right away on the street.
SØREN KLITCOU NORWAY
Thanks to my enthusiastic teachers and other students in the same situation, I managed to greatly increase my speaking and writing command of the Spanish language. When at Delta I made friends with students from all around Europe and North America. Thanks for the good fun of exploring Santander! Santander has it all: beach, fun and an easily understood Spanish. I tried both the memorial experience of living with a Spanish family and living in an apartment that the school had access to. I would highly recommend students to try both if they get the chance as each possibility offers something different.
Mitt opphold i Santander fikk en ’flying start’ takket være Delta Language School. Lærerne og mine medstudenter hjalp meg med å forbedre spansken. Under min tid på Delta møtte jeg andre fra hele Europa og Nord-Amerika. Til dem vil jeg si tusen takk for alle opplevelsene i Santander og i Nord-Spania generelt! En utrolig flott region. I Santander bodde jeg både hjemme hos en spansk familie, som jeg fortsatt skriver brev med, og i en leilighet som Delta ordnet spesielt for meg. Jeg vil anbefale å prøve begge deler ettersom de begge bidrar med en unik opplevelse av byen og livet i Spania.
Renate Will GERMANY
Staying in Santander to learn Spanish is a perfect combination of a great language school, a friendly host family and a beautiful city full of cultural events. The school was just the right size for me, not too big; the teachers really took care of you individually. The groups were a great mix with students coming from all over the world and ranging in age from 18 to 80 years. I loved every minute of it and just wished I could have stayed longer!
Spanisch in Santander zu lernen ist perfekt: die Delta Language School ist sehr gut, es gibt nette Gastfamilien und die Stadt Santander selbst liegt wunderschön am Meer und hat ein großes kulturelles Angebot. Die Schule hatte für mich genau die richtige Größe, alles war überschaubar und die Lehrer betreuen uns wirklich ganz individuell. Die Gruppen waren eine tolle Mischung von Studenten aus der ganzen Welt, und alle Altersgruppen waren vertreten – von 18 bis zu 80-Jährigen! Mir hat es großen Spaß gemacht und ich wäre gern noch länger geblieben.
Francesco Grimaccia Milano ITALY
I felt very well in Santander. It is a fantastic city surrounded with beautiful beaches and landscapes. The school is great as well as the accommodation with a family.
Mi sono trovata molto bene in Santander. La citta' e' fantastica, con spiagge stupende e paesaggi mozzafiato. La scuola e' otima e anche la sistemazione in famiglia e' gradevole.
Katarzyna Czapnik POLAND
I loved Delta . My host family was great .The teachers just wanted to help you and Santander is beautiful. I made a lot of friends. Thank you. I would recommend Delta to all my friends!
John Nohlgren FLORIDA USA
"I spent several months studying at the Delta and found the classes to be stimulating and effective. I started with only minimal proficiency speaking Spanish. Through both grammar and conversational lessons, I became reasonably fluent in only a few weeks such that I could hold a conversation with native Spanish speakers. Learning, however, doesn’t end once you leave the classroom. What I found to be equally as beneficial as the in-class lessons were those interactions I had with my classmates and locals. During a coffee break from class, take the opportunity to have a conversation in Spanish with your French or German classmates about the best beaches and restaurants in Santander. Talk to the waitress about how to make a Spanish tortilla or how she makes her coffee so tasty. I have used this holistic learning experience to my advantage in both my professional and personal lives; an advantage I credit to the Delta Language School."
Ulla Steck Nuremberg, GERMANY
When I came to Santander, I couldn’t speak any Spanish. But this changed very fast, because the courses in small groups were very effective and we had lots of fun. Thanks to our motivated teachers! In school and during our interesting trips I got to know many nice people from all over the world. Some of them are still friends of mine. I n my family I felt well from the beginning on. They were so kind and we were talking so much after our delicious meals. I love the Spanish way of cooking! All in all, the language journey with its great people and my friendly family in such a nice town was so much fun! The mixture of beach, people and school was great! Nürnberg, Deutschland
Als ich in Santander ankam, konnte ich kein Wort spanisch. Dies änderte sich aber schnell, weil die Kurse in den Kleingruppen sehr effektiv waren und der Unterricht sehr viel Spaß gemacht hat. Ein großes Dankeschön an die motivierten Lehrer! Ich habe in der Schule und bei den interessanten Ausflügen viele nette Leute aus den verschiedensten Ländern kennen gelernt zu denen ich heute noch Kontakt habe. I n meiner Gastfamilie habe ich mich von Anfang an wohlgefühlt. Sie haben mich sehr nett aufgenommen und wir haben uns nach dem leckeren Mittagessen immer lang unterhalten! (die spanische Küche....hmm!) Alles in allem war es eine echt gelungene Sprachreise mit coolen Leuten und einer netten Familie in einer schönen Stadt! Die Mischung aus Strand, Menschen und Sprache lernen war einfach genial!
Miriam de Luca SWITZERLAND
I had to live half a year in Santander so I decided to have a Spanish Course to be able to integrate more and to perfect my Spanish, I looked for a school on the internet and immediately I found Delta -. I went to visit it , first of all I liked its situation and its facilities .The school is in the city centre so it is near everything; buses, shops, beaches. My first contact with the staff it was very kindly and helpful. My course has been very flexible, interesting and attractive. I learnt very fast. Teachers are high qualified and they know easily what the students want to learn in each moment. They also have a very detail and clear teaching material. They prepared me very well to pass my Diploma Superior in the DELE exam. At the end, I got my Spanish Diploma and a lot of good friends all over the world, thanks to Delta. For all this I am very happy to recommend “La Escuela Delta” for anyone who wants to learn well the Spanish in Spain.
J'ai vécu un an et demi à Santander et pour pouvoir plus m'intégrer et perfectionner mon espagnol, j'ai décidé de suivre des cours. Comme je ne savais pas quelle école choisir, je l'ai cherchée sur Internet et j'ai pu trouver tout de suite Delta. Je suis allé la voir et ce qui m'a plus en premier lieu, ça été ses installations et sa situation géographique. Elle se trouve au centre ville et près des plages. C'est-à-dire qu'on a tout à proximité (bus, plages, magasins, etc...). Le premier contact avec le personnel a été depuis le premier instant très cordial. Les cours étaient très flexibles, intéressants et attractifs. Si bien que j'ai appris très vite. Ils ont des professeurs hautement qualifiés et la facilité de savoir ce que veut étudier précisément l'élève. Ils ont en leur possession du matériel d'apprentissage très détaillé et clair. Ils m'ont très bien préparé pour l'examen supérieur DELE et je l'ai obtenu. Grâce à Delta j'ai pu me faire de bons amis un peu partout dans le monde. C'est pour tout ça que je recommanderai « La Escuela Delta » a toute personne qui désire apprendre bien l'espagnol en Espagne.
Mark Atkinson USA
Santander was such a beautiful city to study language in and experience Spanish Culture during my teacher sabbatical. I searched for language schools that would be able to accommodate my needs. After contacting almost every school by email, I visited four schools. Delta Language School was the friendliest and most willing to design courses to meet my needs, both individual and group instruction. When I wanted to connect with a local school, the Head of Studies arranged a meeting and accompanied me to the first meeting. They also included my young daughters in some English class to help them with their Spanish. Thank You Delta School!
Claire Richards UNITED KINGDON
Delta is very welcoming and all the students feel really well looked after. The facilities are good and the school is the meeting point for arranging social events, as well as for studying. I have been very happy with teachers and staff at Delta. I will recommend the school and come back myself.
Jonas GERHÄUßER Augsburg GERMANY
Regarding my grades in Spanish in University, I decided to go to Spain to improve it. To be honest Spain wasn’t really my favorite country I only went there to pick up the language. So I booked a flight and flew in to Bilbao in the end of the summer. I took the bus from Bilbao up to Santander. The only think I planned in advance was to sign up in Delta School for an intense language course. Which turned out it was the right decision. The first two weeks were really tough. I’ve had two semesters Spanish in Uni before but that was different. Actually I couldn’t understand a word in the beginning. It took me almost two hours to get a hostel. Because they didn’t speak English and my Spanish was too bad. It worked out in the end and I stayed there for 4 weeks. After the first week I started the course. Were I meet other students which were all super nice. The same has to be said about our teachers. Classes were exhausting but so good for my Spanish I learned a lot! Even how to play Roulette, which we practiced in the lovely old casino right next to the beach. And even better Antonio( one of our teachers )– he obviously didn’t play the first time - won a lot of money so he invited us to the best paella place in town and about 5 wine bars. We had an awesome evening all together. This is just one story I could tell way more. I really enjoyed my time in Santander. And I felt in love with the country and the helpful and great people there. In Uni I got the best grade in my Spanish exam and my teacher back there was really impressed about my Spanish. I cannot wait to go back to Santander! If you want to learn Spanish I can definitely recommend Delta School!
Bezüglich meiner eher schlechteren Spanischnoten in der Uni, habe ich mich entschlossen nach Spanien zu gehen um dort mein Spanisch zu verbessern. Um ehrlich zu sein Spanien gehörte nicht zu meinen Favoriten, ich wählte es eigentlich nur wegen der Sprache. So buchte ich einfach einen Flug nach Bilbao am Ende des letzten Sommers. Nur den intensiv Sprachkurs bei Delta Schools, buchte ich schon von zuhause aus. Was sich als eine sehr gute Entscheidung rausstellte. Die ersten zwei Wochen waren durchaus hart. In der Uni hatte ich schon zwei Semsester Spanisch vorher, dennoch war es unglaublich schwer zu verstehen. Wobei ich später feststellen sollte, dass sie dort ein sehr klares und verständliches Spanisch sprechen. So kostete es mich fast 2 Stunden um ein Hostel zu buchen, da sie dort nur sehr wenig Englisch sprachen und ich noch weniger Spanisch. Nach einer Woche startete ich meinen Kurs bei Delta Schools und durfte dort sehr nette Studenten kennenlernen. Das gleiche gilt auch für alle Lehrer sie waren sehr hilfsbereit und extrem nett. Der Unterricht war sehr anstrengend aber es war so gut für mein Spanisch. Ich lernte so viel, sogar wie man Roulette spielt. Das mussten wir natürlich testen und so sind wir in das alte aber wunderschöne Casino, welches sich gleich am Strand befindet, gegangen. Das Beste war, das Antonio (einer unsere Lehrer) – er spielte offensichtlich nicht das erste Mal ;) einiges gewonnen hatte. Mit seinem Gewinn lud er uns zum besten Paella Platz in der Stadt ein, gefolgt von min. 5 Weinbars. Wir hatten einen sensationellen Abend zusammen. Und dies ist nur eine der unzähligen Geschichten. Meine Zeit in Santander habe ich sehr genossen. Ich habe mich in Land und Leute verliebt und versuche so schnell wie möglich wieder zurück zu kehren. In der Uni hab ich sogar einen Einser geschrieben und meine „Professora“ war sichtlich beeindruckt von meinem Spanisch. Ich kann es kaum erwarten zurück zu kehren. Und wenn jemand Spanisch lernen möchte kann ich Delta Schools nur ans Herz legen.
Kelsey Machicado HOUSTON TEXAS USA
Delta School was a great place to meet new people and learn Spanish. The teachers are fun to work with and easy to talk to about anything. Santander is an amazing city with its culture, beaches, people, and food, and Delta School is a wonderful place to help you truly enjoy your stay. ¡Me gusta mucho!.
Mario Lingua ITALY
I really enjoyed the time that I passed in Santander. I have found it really useful for my Spanish lessons at the university. Classes are so small that teachers can really help every student one by one with their problems. Delta does not only organize the teachings but also activities (quads) and dinners, besides that people are really nice so it's easy to create a group of friends from all over the world. The school also choose well the families to stay with, and this let you naturally improve your level with the language.
Ho molto apprezzato le settimane passate a Santander. Le ho trovate molto utili per le mie lezioni di spagnolo all'università. I corsi sono composti da poche persone, così i professori possono aiutare singolarmente ogni loro studente. Delta non organizza solo gli insegnamenti ma anche attivita' (quad) e cene, inoltre tutti sono molto amichevoli, così è facile farsi un gruppo di amici, anche se provenienti da tutto il mondo. La scuola sceglie inoltre sceglie bene le famiglie da cui stare, e questo aiuta a migliorare naturalmente il proprio livello di spagnolo.
Jessica Buickerood CALIFORNIA USA
The head of Studies and the other staff at Delta were very welcoming. Each day I looked forward to attending class. Not only did they teach me Spanish, they taught me about the Spanish culture and the city of Santander. As an Aupair they were flexible with my time schedule and always accommodating to my needs as a foreigner. I highly recommend attending Delta."

Jeg bodde i en fin leilighet som jeg delte med to andre kursister. Leiligheten lå meget sentralt, med fantastisk utsikt over bukten, og var bare noen få minutters gange fra skolen.
Katherine Spreacher BOSTON USA
In three weeks, my Spanish has advanced rapidly. The courses at Delta School have been a turning point for me in my Spanish language development. One reason, I think, is because the classes are small enough to allow for great flexibility. I was able to begin the course when I wanted to begin and even extended my stay. Yet, still, the instructors were able to tailor lessons in a way that meet my learning level. The activities were well- planed and extremely interesting. I was surprised and impressed at how thoroughly Carmen researched and typed up activities for us on a daily basis. There were always multiple choices every day. It helped me really enjoy Santander and the company of my classmates without having to plan much at all.
Annemarie Schotten-Klein GERMANY
Santander is a great and clean city with interesting architecture and beautiful beaches. Compared with the other language courses I used to attend ( English, French, Rhaeto-Romanic), this language course was very effective. I appreciated the competence of the staff: the teachers were open-minded and offered a good mixture of serious systematic teaching and humorous Spanish ease. Carmen, the good spirit of the school, was very helpful whenever there were any questions. The classrooms were well-equipped and certainly contributed to an agreeable atmosphere. All in all my stay at Santander was really successful and I can recommend this language school because of its quality and the beautiful surroundings.
Santander ist eine sehr schöne, gepflegte Stadt mit herrlichen Stränden. Der Sprachkurs war sehr effektiv, vor allem im Vergleich zu früheren Sprachkursen in Englisch, Französisch und Rätoromanisch. Die Lehrerinnen waren sehr offen und boten eine gesunde Mischung aus ernsthaftem, systematischem Arbeiten und humorvoller, spanischer Leichtigkeit. Carmen, der gute Geist der Schule, stand bei allen Fragen hilfreich zur Seite. Die Schulräume sind sehr schön und tragen zum Wohlbefinden bei. Diese Sprachschule kann ich allen nur empfehlen wegen der Qualität des Unterrichts und der schönen Umgebung.
Eileen Bernardette Moran Boston USA
And excellent combination of teaching/learning activities- using games, stories, videos, music, cartoons and basic grammar. The classes are small, allowing great attention to individuals needs of students. The professors are great highly skilled, personable and creative. Teaching is designed according to the level the student is currently at linguistically. I was extremely comfortable in the school: it is modern, spacious and has multiple student facilities. It was grateful for access to internet, the large social room complete with tv/vcr and the Spanish video collection.
Eun Seok Kim Choi KOREA
I have had a great time in Santander and at this school. The teachers in the school are excellent, friendly and patient. I have greatly improved my Spanish. The school and program is well run and everyone here is very helpful in answering your questions and helping you to plan things to do while in Spain and making sure that everything is well done. I stayed with a nice host family, I was missing my food so I changed to in a nice apartment with two more students where I could cook ”The food I liked” I definitely recommend this program.

Although I stayed only for a week, I was able to improve my ability to speak greatly. The teachers work very professional and are very nice. As there are students from all over the world, I could learn a lot about the different cultures. I highly recommended this school, which is very well organized, to anyone who wants to learn Spanish.
Obwohl ich nur eine Woche Zeit hatte, konnte ich in dieser kurzen Zeit meine Sprechfähigkeit sehr verbesseon. Die Dozenten sind sehr professionell und symphatisch. Da die Kursteilnehmer aus allen Teilen der Welt kommen, konnte ich viel über die verschiedenen Kulturen lernen. Ich kann diese Schule, die sehr gut organisiert ist, nur jedem weiterempfehlen, der Spanisch lernen oder verbessem moechte.

The course is arranged according to levels of fluency in Spanish. The classes are small and each student has ample opportunity to practice speaking Spanish. The teachers provide materials that cover many different aspects of life from which lessons of grammar, pronunciation, reading and writing are drawn.

Thank you for the wonderful experience at Delta , for all your special attention, for the wonderful family-Charo-you placed me with in my first visit, for the nice apartment I stayed in my second time and of course for your neverending kindness. As General MacArthur said as he left Corrigador...."I shall return"

I absolutely loved the time I spent in Santander, both times! I loved it so much the first time that I decided I must go back there a second time! On my first visit, I remember, before I came to Santander, I could write and understand Spanish, but I didn’t have the confidence to speak it as I was very shy and afraid I would make too many mistakes and make a fool of myself. Then, little by little, you all made me realise that this was all part of the learning process and that the most important thing was to be able to communicate with a Spanish person and make yourself understood. Above all, you encouraged me to come out of my shell and studying your course has really boosted my confidence immensely. I wish to commend you all on your teaching methods. On my second visit, I was under a lot of pressure to excel in my Spanish studies here in Wales. I needed a degree in Spanish and Italian and I wanted a good grade! I remember that you devoted a lot of your time to helping me with my spoken Spanish and with the presentation I was asked to give about Princess Diana. You double checked the presentation I had prepared and we added in little bits here and there to improve it. All this hard work really paid off because these high expectations were fulfilled and I ended up with a very sound degree, a B.A. Joint Honours Degree in Italian and Spanish (2:2), which I am very proud of to this day and so are all of my family and friends here in Wales!.
The accommodation was also very beautiful with a wonderful sea view to wake up to in the morning. It was like living in a dream world that into my Spanish studies too!
Visiting Santander was such an unique experience and certainly one I will never forget! Now I am back at home in Wales and I am a teacher of English, Spanish and Italian and I am thoroughly enjoying it all! I would really love to return to Santander to visit you all sometime soon. It’s a lovely place, the Delta teachers are very helpful and attentive and I had so much fun! I look forward to my next visit with great anticipation! Thanks again Delta.

I enjoyed the Spanish course very much. Everyone is very friendly it was very easy to make good friends quickly as the classes are very interactive. I stayed with a family. It was a mother and a child and she was very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. The teachers just want to help and I never felt nervous in class if I didn’t know something.

I was very apprehensible when arriving at Delta as I was on my own. I needn't have worried! Right from the start I was made to feel welcome by staff and my classmates were friendliness itself, always involving me in activities. This continued throught my stay -I was never lonely or bored and thoroughly enjoyed the course I would be happy to recommend it to other solo ......- even one as old as me! The school allowed us to experience typical Spanish evenings which I enjoyed very much! Thank you!

Santander is a beautiful city encircled by many clean and nice beaches. Beside scores of sights there are much more to see and to do. Not only the city itself is worth a visit, but also the surrounding from Santander with their juicy green fields and the mountains. The Delta language school is located in the city centre, a calm and beautiful district of Santander. At my first day at this school they gave me a cordially welcome. The teachers are very helpful and open-minded not only concerning questions about the schooll. We were a very small group with less people and therefore we learned in a short time a lot.
Santander ist eine wunderschoene Stadt umgeben von herrlichen und gepflegten Stränden. Neben zahlreichen Sehenswuerdigkeiten gibt es hier noch viel mehr zu sehen und zu unternehmen. Nicht nur die Stadt selbst, sondern auch die Umgebung mit ihren saftig grünen Feldern und den Bergen ist sehr sehenswert. Die Delta Sprachschule befindet sich in einem sehr schönen und zentral gelegenem Viertel der Stadt. Am ersten Tag wurde ich gleich sehr nett in dieser Schule aufgenommen. Die Lehrerinnen sind sehr hilfsbereit und offen fuer Fragen die nicht nur den Sprachkurs betreffen. Da wir eine sehr kleine Gruppe waren, haben wir innerhalb kü rzester Zeit sehr viel gelernt.

I really liked my two weeks in Santander! The school is located in the city center. Classes are small (we were 4-5 pupils), teachers very nice and patient and the staff very helpful in arranging everything around the stay, things to do and to see in Santander and also around the city. My apartment was fantastic, with a view of the harbour and the bay. I would highly recommend the school and the city, not only because the Spanish there is easy to understand, but also because everything is perfectly organized and you really feel welcomed.
Ich war wirklich sehr angetan von meinen zwei Wochen in Santander. Die Schule liegt mitten im Stadtzentrum. Die Klassen sind klein (wir waren 4-5 Personen), die Lehrer sehr nett und geduldig und das Personal sehr hilfreich bei der Organisation meines Aufenthalts, bei der Organisation von Besichtigungen in Santander und auch in der Umgebung. Mein Appartment war fantastisch, mit Blick auf den Hafen und die Bucht. Ich würde die Schule auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen, nicht nur,weil das Spanisch dort in der Stadt gut zu verstehen ist, sondern auch, weil alles perfekt organisiert war und man sich einfach sehr willkommen gefühlt hat.

I have had a great time in Santander and at this language school. The teachers are excellent, friendly and patient. I have greatly improved my Spanish. The school and program is well run and everyone here is very helpful in answering your questions and helping you to plan things to do while in Spain and making sure that everything is well done. I also loved my host family, who was very accommodating and friendly. I definitely recommend this program. I have also found my true love in Cantabria!.

Grammar in situations, new vocabulary in authentic texts, training of means of speech, guided and free conversation. All this supported by up-to date materials, adapted to the needs of the learners- and taught by enthusiastic expert teachers. After three weeks my conclusion: a successful initiation to communication. Target fully obtained! Gratulations and thanks to Delta
