Valencia is a sunny destination on Spain's Mediterranean coast, and is a wonderful place to learn Spanish. The weather is nice year-round, the beaches are plentiful, the people are friendly and the food is remarkable.
The Taronja Spanish School is an independent family owned institute in the heart of historic Valencia. The school accepts adult students of all ages and the staff likes to claim that their courses are for “the young and the young at heart.” The school building itself is one of the most unique in all of Spain, with each classroom and common area displaying a custom, hand painted artistic theme. Students will also enjoy high speed WiFi throughout the campus. All Taronja programs are accredited by The Instituto Cervantes and The International Association of Language Schools.

Host family students are given a private room and their own key so they can come and go as they please. Half board (daily breakfast and dinner) is included in the price of the host family. Families are hand selected by the accommodation staff and are very accustomed to hosting students from around the world. They can accommodate virtually any diet, allergy or preference. If you have any special needs, please indicate them on your registration form.

The school will be closed on the following public holidays. The school will make up missed class time during the rest of the week on which the holiday falls.
Students are encouraged to fly into Valencia International Airport. Students are required to inform the school about their arrival details including day, time, and flight number at least one week before their arrival date. This is very important in order to ensure that someone will be waiting for the student in the accommodation.

The school organizes a variety of activities that are open to participation from all students. Students will be presented with a list of available activities each Monday, and there is no need to reserve in advance. Weekday activities are organized a few evenings per week and are usually free or between $5-10 USD. Some of these include:
Taronja uses a total immersion approach to teaching Spanish both in and out of the classroom, encouraging maximum conversation and student interaction. Each student will take a placement test upon arrival and be placed in one of the 6 core levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (A1-C2). Classes consist of a combination of exercises, role playing, reading, conversation, and grammar. Each Spanish teacher will then customize a program based upon the level of the participants in the class.
All programs are offered starting each Monday for those with some Spanish experience. Total beginners have specific start dates. (See registration tool for exact dates)
