Learn Spanish in Madrid
Madrid is undeniably one of the most beautiful capital cities in Europe, with its many parks, monuments, museums, shops, restaurants, theatres, cinemas, galleries and numerous places of historical and cultural interest. This makes Madrid an exceptional location in which to learn Spanish.
A visit to the city of Madrid offers you an insight into the magnificent cultural and historical heritage of Spain. Where better to learn Spanish than in the capital city of Spain, a modern, thriving and dynamic city, a mixture of centuries-old traditions and the bustling cosmopolitan Spain of today.
With countless restaurants, bars, theatres, cinemas, and places where you can dance, talk, and meet people - Madrid offers you plenty of extra opportunities to practice the Spanish that you've learnt on the course! This is a city where you can live, learn Spanish and enjoy yourself at the same time.
Located in the very centre of Spain, Madrid is also an ideal base from which to explore the rest of the country, with cities such as Avila, Salamanca, Toledo, Zamora, just a couple of hours drive away.
Because of its height above sea level (over 600 metres) and inland location, Madrid has the ideal Spanish study climate. Madrid enjoys predominantly dry and sunny weather, chilly in winter (but sunny!) and hot in high summer.
The dry climate means the hottest summer days do not feel so hot, making Madrid a comfortable place to learn Spanish and immerse yourself in the culture of Spain today.
Madrid really has to be experienced to be appreciated. This is a charming, seductive city, where life is good. Come to Madrid to learn Spanish, explore the city and experience life 'Madrid-style' (la vida madrileña)
