What our students said about Madrid

Rating: 5/5

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.

The transport is very convenient. With a youth card of 20 euros, you can take all kinds of transportation in Madrid for a month, and you can go to some nearby cities. People in the city are friendly, but most of them don't speak English. Overall consumption is about the same as in Germany.

Rating: 4/5

Very expensive for students like us. Great nightlife but the bars are also quite expensive and the police are very controlling. Nobody speaks English which is great for learning Spanish but at the same time people are not very friendly when they notice you don't speak Spanish.

Madrid is a big city, and as a big urban area has its pros and cons. It's a great city to visit however you must be careful in tourist areas.

The instructors were patient, encouraging students to speak in Spanish and not be concerned with making mistakes. The content provided was varied both in topics and various approaches to learning so that the classroom time passed quickly. I learned quite a bit in a short amount of time.

Q&A - Questions and answers about Madrid

  • At present (2023) we do not offer Italian courses in Madrid or in any other Spanish city, but we can offer you Italian courses in Italy (Roma, Milan, Florence...).
    Rubén De Haro, LanguageCourse.Net - Apr 17, 2023
  • Yes, we have many excellent partner schools in Madrid offering Spanish courses.
    Sawsan Zein, LanguageCourse.Net - Dec 11, 2022
  • All the intensive courses with group lessons take place on weekdays, from Monday to Friday (5 consecutive days). Considering that your daughter has a tight schedule, we would recommend private lessons for her. Private classes are fully personalized and give the student the opportunity to establish their own schedule and pace of learning. These classes are excellent for improving and progressing in specific areas, such as phonetics or reading comprehension and vocabulary.

FAQ about schools in Madrid

  • If you have already completed A1 it takes approximately 8 weeks to complete A2 if you study 20 lessons per week. If you are a complete beginner it will take 4-6 additional weeks.
    Louise Granath, Language Travel Consultant from LanguageCourse.Net - Nov 17, 2023
  • Barcelona is the perfect destination if you want to see the sites of Antoni Gaudí, enjoy a vibrant culinary scene, and spend time on the beach. Conversely, if you're looking for a less crowded, more affordable immersion in Spanish history and art galleries, Madrid is the place.
    Maksym Sterpul, Language Travel Consultant from LanguageCourse.Net - Nov 16, 2023
  • Yes, it is possible. Most schools prefer to group students by language level, not age.
    Robin Rebecca Pietersma, Language Travel Consultant from LanguageCourse.Net - Jul 07, 2023
  • Undoubtedly the best option for a week is the teacher's home programme, which allows you to make the most of your time, or alternatively a private tuition course. We will be happy to provide you with quotes and information for both options as soon as you send us more information about the period you are interested in.
