Learn Spanish in Madrid (Retiro Park), Spain
Also Available:• Madrid (Puerta del Sol)
If you want to learn Spanish, Madrid is an excellent choice. People here speak Spanish with no regional accent or dialect, so it is easier to learn. As well as being a fascinating city itself, Madrid is also an excellent base from which to explore the rest of Spain. We have two schools in Madrid, each school offering high-quality Spanish courses, both located in Madrid city centre. Our Madrid (Retiro Park) school is located just a short walk from the famous ‘Retiro Park’. Our other school is situated close to the ‘Puerta del Sol’.
The course was very good and I'm very happy I chose your school! After 3 weeks my Spanish is much better and it will help me in my university. I hope I'll have a chance to come to your school in Madrid next summer!
Course was very well organized. The school had lots of activities available to keep busy as well. Accommodation was perfect. The family was very friendly and the food was delicious.
I really enjoyed my time at the school, the teachers are extremely friendly and keen to help students learn and understand Spanish.
I am very pleased with my experience in Madrid and would not hesitate to book through Language Courses Abroad again. The staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful, which is very much appreciated.
The teachers are, for me, what make these courses and in this area the school excelled. All 3 of my Profesoras were great.
The teachers were excellent and also the small class sizes were excellent. The opportuinity for outings and activities was also very good.
Wonderful. I had two great instructors, and although I went as a novice, they had me speaking Spanish by the end of the week. They were able to assess my ability, teach me at my level and encourage me to speak. And we had fun!

My Pleasant Retreat to Madrid
I can confidently say that studying Spanish in Madrid was the best decision of my life! There was so much to experience in this miraculous city that I found it difficult to decide what my after-class activities would be every afternoon! Thankfully, though, everything (including the school) was easily accessible by the very efficient Metro system in Madrid.
One of the first few days that I was in Madrid I decided to enjoy the beautiful weather outside by exploring the park that is just minutes from the school... El Parque del Buen Retiro (Park of the Pleasant Retreat).
This park was magnificent - I spent so much time there! It had everything imaginable to enjoy a sunny afternoon...from beautiful gardens and peaceful little café's to artistic, amusing street performers and a pond filled with people paddling rowboats. It was the perfect retreat for me because I would go jogging there in the cool of the early morning. In the afternoons I could chill out there and sip on a refreshing drink under the café terraces. One day I even had my fortune told in the park (which left me feeling quite optimistic afterward).
