What our students said about Madrid

Rating: 5/5

5.0

Madrid is a fabulous place, even though I have been to Spain many times I'd never been able to spend any time there. It really has something for everyone, from exceptional museums to parks, restaurants and plays and music bars and ... something for everyone. The only real risk is doing too much. The metro works extremely well in Madrid and it's easy to get around.

I love Madrid! More typical Spanish than Barcelona. If you want to get to know the Spanish life, Madrid can show you.

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!
I am very happy with the week and would like to take several weeks of language teaching at the same school at a later date.

The kindness and professionalism of all the staff
As I was alone I would have liked to interact more with other students by group in their excursions to museums, neighbourhoods, Spanish cooking classes, dance classes, etc ... (but age is now a handicap or me)

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.
My highest recommendations to Academia Contacto.

Good lesson, great level of teaching by teacher David. A lack of introduction at the start of the course. Jumped straight into the course. Became more relaxed afterwards. Compliments for David's teaching.
I found the personal attention moderate. Felt like a well-oiled machine with students who attended classes for a longer period of time. Girlfriend and I were there for only a week and paid a decent amount of money for this course. Would have expected some more personal attention.

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.
A perfect place to study Spanish.

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.
