I came to Babylon to learn Spanish, instead, teachers were on strike and didn't keep classes, because they weren't paid for a few months. I asked my money back, but they said they CANNOT give me back my money. So, I lost 400 euros. They...More

Great teachers but this school is going out of business. The Barcelona school isn't paying their teachers and, as a result, they are on strike - only working Tuesday - Thursday. Avoid at all costs!! Its a shame since their teachers are all good and...More

The teachers are on strike on my very first day of class due to the fact that they have not been paid since December (almost three months). Therefore no class took place. I undestand the teachers but what I don't understand is that the owner...More

I found learning Spanish as an immersion experience quite difficult. There was a great deal of support and the teachers were fantastic. The organised tours were excellent. I suggest that during the time you are a student you don't schedule much else! It is important...More

I wish I could write two separate reviews for Babylon idiomas: One for the teaching staff and one for the rest. The teachers were way above average (of what I have experienced in many other language schools). I stayed for four weeks, so I had...More

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
