Ellen Heidi: "The classroom was cold. The offer of activities and excursions looked good, and I would probably join if I were to stay for several weeks, but I did not use it since I only was there for a single week."

Patrick: "I had a great time learning Spanish. They put you in a class of your own level and the teachers are very capable with their tasks. They have a program but also give space for your own needs and stories. It was a very good and pleasant course. "

Jonathan: "The intensive course was extremely good, and backing it up with two extra hours one-to-one really made an enormous difference. The main course had four students, all adults about 25-60 with various reasons for being there, different abilities and different rates of learning. The teachers were very skillful at managing this without leaving anyone out. My extra two hours of one-to-one were organised as one before the main classes and one after, and so it possible to really prepare and then reinforce the topics of the day. The extra tuition might appear expensive, but if you are serious about learning quickly were really very good value for money. My teacher began by asking why I was learning Spanish and what I needed from the course, and every lesson had material specifically for me, focussed exactly as I'd wanted. I was really delighted with how much progress I made in just the one week and how easy and supportive the teachers were."

What students liked about Academia Contacto, Madrid
It's really a very professional school, they do care about the students and their progress. The atmosphere of the school was very warm and lovely. There were many events organized for the students that made my stay unforgettable. The teachers are very kind and professional. The structure of the class was just perfect as it had grammar, conversation, listening etc.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: I wish I had booked the Intensive 20 course. Next time I will go for that.
Other comments: A perfect place to study Spanish.
I had lessons for 2 weeks own the morning. The school provided textbook which was appropriate to my level and broad enough to extend my learning. The teacher, Pablo, was experienced and inspiring. He was able to include all students, 7-9 in active learning experiences. Lessons were interesting and engaging.

Other comments: My highest recommendations to Academia Contacto.
My teacher was very good, prepared various materials in the class, such as movies, songs, flash cards, and going outside the school to practice Spanish etc. I've been encouraged a lot by her. It was also a good thing that she directly warned lazy students to study.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Joining the event organized by citylifemadrid (ex. Meat & speak) is recommended to those who want to have friends in and outside the school.
The enthusiasm, dedication, and skill of the teachers were outstanding; speaking very clearly (and only in tenses we knew!) and staying in Spanish throughout. The printed and website materials were very good, as was our homework (we voted every day to have it).

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: If you have breakfast at one of the nearby cafes it only takes 55 seconds to get to class. Our classes were organised all before (Madrid) lunchtime, so make sure you have snacks!
Other comments: The school is small and friendly and the classrooms are small, which means you don't have to raise your voice at all and everyone can see and hear perfectly. The administrator is very friendly and very able and knows everybody by name, and also speaks fluent English and native French. Although listed as a having a library and a cafe these are really pretty minimal. Wifi worked perfectly, including for whole class playing interactive word games.
An enthusiastic and talented teacher, Paola, who joined the whole group and really taught me a lot. Also the nice and helpful staff in the administration, both Fanny and Mario!
