It’s right in the center of Spain, where all the
roads and main railway lines converge. It’s the biggest and
most lively city. It’s the capital.
It’s Madrid! It has that artistic taste and some
of the world’s most famous museums. The Madrilenians work very hard but
know how to live well. Here, people eat very well, love going
out at night, and enjoy the best of life! They enjoy going out with
friends for “cañas and tapas”. This is Barrio de Salamanca,
one of the best Madrid quarters. It’s full of bars,
shops and restaurants. Our school is very well located, close to the centre.
Here we are! Here we have
the classrooms. They are very comfortable and spacious
because the groups are small. We have 10 or 12 students
per class on average all of them at
the same level. We offer Spanish
courses for all levels, from beginners, who have
never studied the language, to the most advanced ones.
We also offer courses of special interest, such as culture courses,
Spanish cinema courses, or Spanish business language,
for people who need it in their job. The atmosphere in this
school is wonderful, because it’s a new school and there are many
people here who are really kind and happy, too, and there’s a lot of sun and
a lot of light here, so it’s, yes, it’s very nice
to study here! The classes are very
amusing because here you have different classes,
like Communication. And also the i-Lab, a class
where we use computers a lot! In Madrid, the students can enjoy
two different kinds of accommodation. I live with a family here in Madrid,
and I like this very much. The family normally cooks the
typical food from Spain, like “paella”, “gazpacho” and
different kinds of salads, and that’s very delicious.
I love it! It’s very interesting to talk to them,
cause they know many things about Spain! We are living in the
students residence and we like it a lot
because we feel really free. There are students
coming from all over the world.
It’s very international. Each day we schedule visits for the
students who want to do things together. We go to see a football match
with Real Madrid or Atlético, and we visit
all places of interest. The other day we were in Toledo,
which is the ancient capital of Spain, and it’s very beautiful,
very special. It has very beautiful streets,
and it has different styles, arab style, very classical Spanish style, Yes, I liked it very much,
it’s a beautiful city. I like Madrid very much because
you have a bit of everything, and also there is a lot
of culture and art. The architecture is very beautiful,
you have many museums and many terraces. And Madrid has many parks,
and that’s something I like a lot, too, that you can relax,
read a book, whatever.
