I stayed for 2 weeks at Babylon in Barcelona to study Spanish and I had a great time!! The teachers are really motivating and I feel that I learned a lot in this short time. The organised activities with the other students made me feel very comfortable from my first day on and we spent a great time inside and outside of the classroom!

My experience at Babylon was amazing. What I appreciated the most were my teachers (each group has two teachers, one for each block of classes), they were competent and fun at the same time, great at giving explanations and also offering help even when the classes were over. I could always count on them. The classes were interesting, I didn't get bored even once. The reception desk works smoothly and is willing to help you with any problems/questions you have.

Is a nice place to be. Near to the city center, funky teachers, spanish spoken environment. Teachers are very open to all their students, students are open to meet new people around the world to study spainish. Its one of the five star schools in BCN!!

I enjoyed my stay in Barcelona tremendously. My classes in Baybylon Idiomas were in the evening and there was always a group of people that would have lunch after class and explore the city. It is very natural to learn spanish this way.

Great program with excellent teachers and staff. Knowledgeable and helpful customer service with the patience to answer any kinds of questions to ensure that you have all of the information you need. There are plenty of opportunities to bond with students and professors outside of classes with various organized activities. I really enjoyed my time there and would recommend no other school than Babylon.
