The NSI was everything I needed out of a Spanish language school. Great teachers, atmosphere and service. They offer a truly authentic experience. My family homestay was a great addition to an already great experience. They also offered cool outings in and around the area.”

Solid, enjoyable and enlightening. Totally satisfied with the experience. Excellent teachers. I especially liked the use of logic with the language, because that helped me understand many areas where I was confused. Great administration. Thank you.

Extremely helpful, patient, knowledgeable and interesting. Nice mix of humor and a great personality. [My teacher] was very organized and used a mixture of teaching techniques which were very effective. The school was impressive and beautiful.
