Learn Spanish in Madrid


Discover Madrid

Madrid is an electric city. It’s old traditions mixed with modern movements, glamor and grunge all at once, quaint or cosmopolitan depending on where you look. It’s a city that will grab you and pull you through its winding streets, into bars with the clatter of clinking coffee cups, shouting waiters, laughing Spaniards sharing stories; through stunning parks surrounded by architectural treasures; traditional plazas humming with the sounds of happy people having a caña with friends at just about any time of day. There’s a special light that glows on the buildings of the city’s buzzing Gran Vía, a special energy you’ll feel as you explore the different flavors to be found in its many different barrios. Madrid is a truly special city with an energy that just may grab you and never let go.

What we love about Madrid

Just about everything… The lively crowd at the city's best tapas bars, the elegance of the Palacio Real, the fact that you can start a conversation (the best way to learn Spanish) with a complete stranger on any terrace while sipping your coffee, the Spanish culture to be found around every corner whether it's at the magnificent Museo del Prado or a little jazz bar in Huertas. We love Madrid's tradition (see: markets where you can buy the freshest culinary treats) and its modernity (check out Chueca); we love that Madrid is a place where you can learn Spanish in all the senses of the word. Madrid is the perfect place to begin a journey into the Spanish language and culture in Spain.

"I love this place! I was in the school (the building is amazing!) for two weeks in october and enjoyed also the residence, a shared flat 5 minutes walking from the school, because it's a multiculti environment and... you have the neighbourhood of the university students 10 minutes walking! I met many people and now we're friends!"
