Learn Spanish in Madrid Junior Program

With all the energy you'd expect from a European capital, an explosive cultural scene bursting with expositions, independent markets, and the best music around, and historic neighborhoods that hint at what the Spanish capital must have been like centuries ago, Madrid is a destination that has everything and more. With an open and warm-hearted population used to welcoming foreigners, its status as one of the safest cities in Europe, world-class museums like the Prado, neighborhoods known for their tapas culture, and expansive pubic parks like El Retiro to enjoy the good weather, your children will never run out of ways to enjoy the city and discover new things.
START DATES: 3/7, 17/7, 31/7
AGES 14-18



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.

I had an amazing experience in Marbella, it was a great combination of learning, glamour, and fun in the sun. I loved being able to go to the beach every day after class, and my roommates and I practiced our Spanish together at home. After my experience with don Quijote, I’m motivated to continue studying the language so I can keep traveling and learning about other cultures.


What better place to learn Spanish than right on the Mediterranean coast? There’s nothing like having an authentic paella on the beach! Valencia was everything I imagined and more. Studying at don Quijote took me out of my comfort zone and gave me the courage to speak Spanish and interact on another level. When you study in Spain, you learn more than just the language: you interact with the locals and they show you their traditions and way of life.


The island of Tenerife is incredible. There’s so much to do, you can enjoy life in the city or get away from it all by going on a beautiful hike or taking it easy on the beach. Learning Spanish here at don Quijote was a dream come true. The teachers were very patient with me, and every day I felt a bit more comfortable speaking in Spanish. Now I can have real conversations in a new language, which will open doors for me the future.


I never thought I’d meet so many people from so many different countries. The classes at don Quijote are very international, plus there’s a great student atmosphere in Salamanca thanks to the famous university. I picked up a lot of Spanish words and phrases just by talking with locals. My roommates and I also put sticky notes all around the apartment to help us remember our new vocabulary. The city itself was great, you can see the most incredible architecture just walking to the supermarket. I can’t believe how much I learned, both in class and in the real world. I would definitely recommend studying at don Quijote in Salamanca.
