6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?
Enrolling in language classes at M17834 has not only benefited me in learning Spanish, but also served as an incredible resource to Spain and its amazing lifestyle. Growing up in Florida, USA gives me an innate love for the beach, but didn’t prepare me for the beautiful landscape of Almunecar. You have the Mediterranean Sea literally down the street (a 5 minute walk from the school) and a backdrop of the Sierra Nevada all around you. It’s safe, lively and warm all year!. While I had other choices of language schools, I chose CICA because the professors have excellent credentials (and a proven history of successful language training) and the school has the best connections to extra-curricular activities.
