Our Students' Opinions

          Rahima Haddassi, Mombassa. Kenya.


          I wanted to integrate to this interesting society, so I was looking for ways to learn the language in order to fit in with the native people, the customs, etc. So after a few weeks of studying at Your House, I could communicate with the people and that makes me very happy.

          I was on my hometown wanting to travel and get rid of the monotony of my life. One day by chance, I came across the Your House website, I applied for their Spanish courses, filled in the registration form and here I am now in Torelló, happy to study Spanish in a new environment. My life has totally changed.

         
Virgine.

The first minute I saw Your House on the net, I felt I wanted to study there, its bright colours and the design of their logo appealed to me, then I learned about its favourable situation in the city and I wanted to check it out. The quality of their teaching turned out to be better than anything else.

I enrolled in Your House as a Spanish illiterate, but within a year I had achieved different levels of difficulty and at the end of such time I could secure my place at the University of Barcelona to study Economics and Jurisprudence.

I found a friendly atmosphere at Your House and their teachers helped me a great deal with my Spanish from the very first day. I can only thank them for what they did for my new language knowledge.
