MADRID: LEARN SPANISH AMONG THE LOCALS

Learning Spanish in Madrid is a very intelligent decision, because:

  • In Madrid, Spanish is the only official language and the accent is very clear and easy to understand.

  • Don’t forget that in other Spanish cities, like Barcelona and Valencia, they also speak other languages similar to Spanish, which can create a lot of confusion for foreign students. There are regions, like Andalucia, where the strong accent can be difficult to understand, including for some native Spanish speakers.

  • Madrid has an intense cultural and leisure calendar throughout the whole year (in coastal areas, outside the summer months, there is little to do).

  • Madrid is the economic and business capital of Spain, for this reason it is perfect if you want to combine your Spanish course with a job or work experience.

  • From Madrid, it is very easy and cheap to travel to all the cities of Spain, because it is in the very centre of the country.

  • And most importantly, the people in Madrid are very welcoming and always want to speak with and meet foreign visitors. As few people speak good English, you will be able to practice your Spanish as much as you want!
