Your children will be captivated by the city's vitality as they explore the streets of Madrid with their new international friends, improving their Spanish skills by talking amongst themselves and with the local madrileños,who are known for being accepting of people from all different backgrounds.
In addition to becoming more independent and feeling more confident facing new situations (while also knowing they can always count on getting help from the specially trained professional staff at don Quijote), students are free to fully explore their passions and discover new interests while they bike along the River Manzanares in Madrid Río Park, visit cutting-edge expositions at the Matadero art center, and discover secret corners of the historic neighborhood known as Madrid de los Austrias.
Benefits of the Junior Program
The inspiring variety of activities and places a big city has to offer makes Madrid the perfect place to give your children between the ages of 14 and 18 the opportunity to get out of the house and experience the world. In addition to learning Spanish with the 20 or 30 weekly classes included in our Junior Program, students will also enjoy participating in the activities organized three afternoons each week and exploring the areas around Madrid during the full-day excursion. Not only will they have lots of chances to speak Spanish with native speakers and their classmates, they will also improve their social skills, boost their self-confidence, and expand their horizons thanks to their new friends of different nationalities.
