Madrid, a historic city with a fresh cosmopolitan spirit is the number one destination for a Spanish study tour at any time of the year. Located in the very centre of the Iberian Peninsula, Spain´s fascinating capital is the only place where people and traditions from all Spanish regions meet and mix.

Whatever it is that you are looking for, Madrid has it all; breathtaking historical architecture, world-class museums, modern art galleries and extensive picturesque parks. Here you will enjoy a multitude of cultural events and leisure activities, vibrant nightlife with endless clubs and pubs as well as the delights of Spanish cuisine in the country’s finest restaurants and tapas bars.

GRAN VÍA

Madrid’s most renowned sites are must-sees; the vibrant Puerta del Sol with its “El Oso y el Madroño” (the Bear & the Strawberry Tree) statue – the symbol of Madrid - the splendid Plaza Mayor, the Royal Palace (home to the Spanish Royal Family), the Plaza de España

Your Spanish teachers make a difference Our teaching team have been handpicked for their qualifications, skills and warm personalities, are native Spanish speakers, educated to at least degree level and with several years of experience in teaching Spanish to students of all ages, nationalities and levels.

They are career Spanish teachers who love what they do and are passionate about sharing their language, culture and heritage with foreign students - nothing gives them greater pleasure and pride than seeing you improve your Spanish skills and communicate with greater fluency.

The teachers work as a team, share knowledge and benefit from the huge bank of internally developed learning materials and up-to-date publications. This ensures they select the most appropriate approach for each student or group, explaining even the most difficult grammar and language issues in a simple and memorable way. Additionally you will find our teachers to be fun and innovative, creating a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, giving you the necessary confidence to interact and practice Spanish at all times.

Proven teaching method to guarantee maximum learning Our courses integrate the development of all linguistic skills, bringing into the classroom situations that you are likely to encounter in your daily life and making the learning process truly meaningful.

Student Care Team The team consists of young, open-minded and multilingual professionals who are always on-hand to assist you, from the initial point of contact until you safely get back home.... and beyond. The Student Care Team enjoy their work and will gladly help you with the selection of your Spanish programme and accommodation, be your guides to Spanish customs and culture, give tips on the highlights of Madrid life and answer any other questions or concerns you might have. They really care and do their very best to make sure your language experience is as comfortable, enjoyable and memorable as possible. The Student Care Team encourage you to communicate in Spanish, but if it is easier for you, they revert back to other languages (they speak English, German, French, Italian, Polish, etc.).

BLANCA’S CLASS

We employ an innovative communication-based methodology, proven to be the most effective in learning a foreign language and producing immediate results.

Our teachers introduce creative techniques and highly participative activities, such as role-plays, discussions, practice with authentic press, video and audio materials, interviews, games or pair-work, backed up by a textbook. Having classes in small groups with a maximum of 8 students (6 students on average) will maximise your participation and interaction with the teacher allowing constant guidance and feedback. During your programme you also get an in-depth understanding of the different socio-cultural aspects of Spanish life. And of course, all teaching takes place exclusively in Spanish.

”I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to AIL Madrid for making our stay in Madrid so memorable. I brought a group of 18 children from Nigeria to spend a week at AIL. Although apprehensive at first, the children (aged 1115) loved the classes and the teachers did a great job in integrating them into the group. The cultural activities that were organized in the afternoon were engaging and exciting, helping the children to familiarize themselves with Madrid. I cannot say thank you enough to the team who organized everything from accommodation to restaurant reservations. As a teacher it made my life much easier and gave me some time to enjoy some of the delights of Madrid whilst the children were in class. Since we returned to Nigeria I’ve had so many children come to me and say ‘I miss Madrid, when can we go back’. So thanks again for making an amazing experience for us all.

See you again soon!” Natalie Jayne Larkin, Spanish Teacher, Nigeria, Spanish for Groups
