Learn Spanish in Madrid (Retiro Park), Spain
Also Available:• Madrid (Plaza de Espana)
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’.
Our school in Madrid (Retiro Park)
Our Madrid (Retiro Park) school is ideally located, just a short walk from the Retiro Park. The school is in an attractive building, with 23 well-equipped air-conditioned classrooms, an Internet café, library and student common room/cafeteria.
Students can learn Spanish on a wide range of Spanish courses, as well as on a Spanish Course/Work Experience scheme. The maximum class size is 5 or 9 students per class – smaller than at most schools - depending on the course. You can learn Spanish on an ‘Intensive’ Spanish course of 20 lessons/week, or on a ‘Super-Intensive’ Spanish course of 30 lessons/week. Our school also offers ‘Reduced Group’ Spanish courses, with a maximum of just 5 students per class.
You can choose to stay in carefully selected Spanish host families, shared student apartments, or else in private studio apartments. The studio apartments are located just a short walk from the school, in the very centre of Madrid. If you want to learn as much Spanish as possible during your stay in Madrid, you should consider staying with a Spanish host family, as you will then practice with the family the Spanish that you learn on the course.
Our school in Madrid organizes full-day weekend excursions to Salamanca, Segovia and Avila. Four free ‘culture lessons’ per week are also provided by the school, as well as an extensive program of visits and activities – all designed to help students enjoy their stay in Madrid and practice the Spanish that they learn on their course. These visits include guided walks to places of interest within Madrid, museum and theatre visits, tapas tours with teachers and parties at the school.
Exploring Madrid – La Latina!
If you are planning on going to Madrid, there is a neighbourhood you absolutely need to visit. It is located in the old town of the city, has some of the most beautiful medieval streets in the world and hosts the best Tapas bars in the Spanish capital. Its name is no other than La Latina.
La Latina is one of the most genuinely authentic neighbourhoods of Madrid. On Sundays, the biggest open-air flea market in Spain is held in its grounds - El Rastro de Madrid. Whether you are looking for a new painting to decorate your walls, browse rare books, vintage clothes or even buy a new pet, you can be sure that you will be able to find it in El Rastro!
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!
The teachers were brilliant, so skilled at teaching and so patient with our efforts to speak Spanish. I found the course very helpful in targeting just what I needed to be able to speak Spanish more confidently.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course. The school has very friendly staff. I feel a lot more confident about speaking Spanish now.There was an interesting mix of students on the course.
Although I was only at the school for 4 days, I had a wonderful experience, learned a lot and enjoyed the excursions. My host provided me with excellent accommocation and food. I would definitely go there again.
