Spanish for everyone in Madrid is our largest school, with more than 1,500 foreign students and 400 Spanish students attending courses here each year. You will study in the prestigious Salamanca district, just one block from Retiro Park and a short walk from the Prado Museum and other magnificent buildings. Transport connections are excellent: many buses and two underground lines stop nearby. The school has 25 air-conditioned classrooms, a social area, video room and library, and has recently been refurbished. Foreign students per year: 1,800 (2005). Average number of students: 150.
Lessons last 45 minutes and are normally in blocks of two. Punctuality, classroom participation and homework are essential to your success. Groups are small - there are never more than nine students and the number is lower in many courses. Every course includes Spanish Culture four times a week. Every student who attends at least 90% of their classes and meets the requirements of each level receives a certificate showing the length of course and level of Spanish achieved.
Our seven language levels range from beginner to proficient. Your level is assessed on arrival to ensure you are placed in the right class. If you have chosen a specialised or individual course, this helps us to design or fine-tune your programme. All our teachers hold a college degree or diploma, and are chosen for their enthusiasm, commitment and team spirit. Family is important at Spanish for everyone, and many of our teachers have been with us for years. The school director organizes the groups and supervises your individual progress. All course materials are included in your fees and are yours to keep after the course, but please bring your own pocket dictionary.
