I had an amazing time in Debla. I`ve learned a lot, because the teachers were incredible. The teaching program, inc. all the materials seems to me very good as well. I did not even expect that I could have such a good experience – in the school is very friendly atmosphere and everybody was very nice to me – whenever I asked for some help (even if it was not part of the teaching program) everyone tried to help me. I really think you can not choose the better school than this one. Very grateful for this opportunity.

Traveling alone to Spain from the US, our 16yr old twins had a wonderful time at Debla Language School in Malaga. They learned much in their limited time, felt safe in the community and enjoyed the teaching staff and methods tremendously. We received ample information in advance, safe travel to and from the airport and great communication from the school while the kids were in the program. Unfortunately for us, both kids contracted Covid while abroad but even then, the school was responsive to our questions and concerns and made adjustments to support the kids. We would highly recommend and our kids would love to return for another session.

I’ve just spent a hugely enjoyable week at Debla, having signed up for the over-50s course. For anyone seeking high-quality tuition in a fun, pressure-free atmosphere, it’s a great place to study.On this occasion, the older students were allocated to classes related to their language level (so they joined younger students for lessons), but came together for cultural activities.I have done several classes at other schools in the past, including two in Málaga, and this was easily the most enjoyable and useful experience I have had.Lessons at those other schools were slightly intimidating, which knocked my confidence a little. But there was no such problem at Debla. I found the tutors to be not only talented and professional, but huge fun too. It was education with a smile, and there was always a really positive, happy and friendly atmosphere, which helped me to seize the opportunity to learn.There was a great mix of language and culture, and I and my group of student friends took part in everything that was on offer. We also spoke Spanish all the time, in and out of class. At the end of the week, two or three people said to me how they felt their Spanish had improved by throwing themselves into the experience in this way.I was delighted to come away from the week with my knowledge of the subjunctive in particular much enhanced, and with great memories of excellent tutors and lovely students.Debla is a special place and I will definitely be back in the future. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

I only had one week of super intensive Spanish with Deba, but they really accelerated my Spanish capabilities. I absolutely loved having Antonio Jose “Tony” for my teacher (his teaching skills were equaled by his massive level of energy & humour), and meeting Amaya (who’s super friendly & quirky), and Olga (who’s really helpful with all my questions & requests). The school is housed in a large beautiful sunlit building with so much space inside as well as outside: the terraces and yard are all overlooking the gorgeous city. It’s close to so much: beaches, restaurants, and walking distance to the city centre. There were not so many students (since we were among the first to join in person), but the level of attentiveness to health and sanitation is extremely high – I felt very safe there. I was hesitant choosing a school in Malaga, but I’m so happy to have gone with Debla – you feel so happy in that place, while learning lots (and yes, I know I should have written this in Spanish, but this is for all you other non-Spanish people) 🙂 I’ll go back again for sure!

Absolutely recommendable Is has been a great overall experience to study at Debla for a while. The professors are all great, they all have a different approach and way of teaching, which I liked a lot. Everything was perfectly set up and the accommodation was very good and ;located in the middle of the city center. I met a lot of new people from all over the world during my stay and I have improved my Spanish a lot, especially the grammar and speaking part. All in all, Debla is the perfect school to really dive into the Spanish culture!
Volvería Para mí, la experiencia fue fantástica. La escuela es muy bonita y yo disfuté cada momento allí. Todas las habitaciónes son cómodas, y la terraza es la mejor parte, porque es puede ver al mar. Todos los profesores son muy agradables, simpáticos, y con ganad de ayudar. Para mí, las clases estaban bien organizadas. Creo que he aprendido mucho, pero sobre todo he hecho muchos amigos nuevos. Definitivamente recomendaría esta escuela de idiomas a cualquiera persona que quiera aprender a español, conocer la cultura española, y hacer nuevos amigos.
Erlebnisreiche Sprachreise Die Schule ist sehr familiär. Alle Mitarbeiter dieser Schule sind sehr nett, kompetent, motiviert und hilfsbereit. Herzlichen Dank. Ich kann Debla nur weiterempfehlen.
A very special school in Malaga Great school! I’ve done Spanish courses in 3 different schools, and this one is very special. Definitely recommended!
Excellent Experience My experience at Debla was fantastic. The teachers were all very welcoming and helpful. Classes are taught in a fun and interactive way. This really helps to make learning enjoyable. Progress is quickly evident which gives motivation to continue learning Spanish. The school is bright and in a great location. The staff are always on hand to offer assistance when needed. I highly recommend studying here and I look forward to returning.
Debla Schule Ich habe vier Wochen lang in der Schule mein Spanisch intensiviert.Die Lehrer sind sehr professionell und kompetent. Ich war überrascht, dass man in so kurzer Zeit seineSprachfähigkeit verbessern kann! Abläufe in der Schule sind sehr gut organisiert. Man spürt von der erste Minute an, dass für die Lehrer ihre Arbeit Leidenschaft ist! Vier Wochen sind vergangen wie im Flug. Die Schule bietet viele Freizeitaktivitäten, mit denen die Schüler auch in der Freizeit viel erfahren können über Land und Leute.Ich kann Interessenten die Schule bestens empfehlen!
Fantastische Sprachschule mit engagierten Lehrerinnen an Top-Lage mit hervorragenden Lehrmitteln Tolle Sprachschule mit engagierten, sympathischen LeherInnen an guter Lage mit Sicht aufs Meer. Die Schule bietet, neben dem Unterricht, ein vielseitiges Freizeitangebot zu fairen Preisen an.
Excellente Recommandé à 100% pour: le contexte, les professeurs, l’ambiance, les activités, le contenue !!! Merci à vous pour avoir de mon expérience un pur bonheur.
Curso de idiomas muy eficaz En agosto de 2022, hice un curso intensivo de español de tres semanas en debla. Las lecciones se dividen en una parte de gramática y otra de conversación, de modo que se refuerzan numerosas competencias. ¡Pude mejorar mucho mi español durante las tres semanas y sólo puedo recomendar esta escuela de idiomas!
