    Language classes were excellent. 1-to-1 cookery demonstration was good for language practise and interesting to witness, but maybe you should make it clearer that it is demonstration only with no hands-on cooking.

    A great language school in Malaga. Rafael and his team were really helpful. Our teacher Noemi was very patient - which was brilliant as we were beginners...:)! Enjoyed the cooking sessions with Ana. Learned about local dishes. A quality experience. GoLearnTo were efficient too.
