My review with Instituto Hemingway
I had a great time there in Bilbao. The School was GREAT!! I loved the city and staff was very helpful. I learned so much that now I can communicate with anybody irrespective of country origin (more than 20 Spanish-speaking countries) I also had time to go around the superb surroundings and fantastic beaches and all in all thumbs up!!

I loved Bilbao! I was right when I chose this city and this School as I did not want to go where all people go due to media advertising. This city is real Spain and I enjoyed very much my experience improving my Spanish with Instituto Hemingway. They do a lot of interesting things
