Spanish Host Family

Living with a Spanish host ("homestay") family is a great way to experience life in Madrid, learn more about Spanish culture, and of course, an additional opportunity to improve your Spanish. Staying with a Spanish family allows you to be totally immersed into the Spanish lifestyle and customs in a relaxed and comfortable environment conducive to study. Students should be prepared to adapt to the rules and ways of life of the Spanish family (such as meal times) but you will be given your own keys so you are free to come and go as you please. Guests are prohibited and breakfast and either lunch or dinner are included. Host families can be couples or single people, with or without children.

 AIL Madrid’s Accommodation Advisors will ask you to complete a questionnaire two weeks prior to your arrival. This will allow us to identify your preferences and dislikes (such as smoking, pets, young children) and enable us to ensure you are placed with a suitable Spanish family. If a student is unhappy in a host family for whatever reason, they will be moved, no questions asked.

Shared Flat

AIL Madrid recommends shared flats for students who want a more independent lifestyle and prefer to cook for themselves.  The apartments are simply-furnished and are located in pleasant residential areas of Madrid. Living in a shared flat is a wonderful way to meet other international students, travelers and working people. The flats are shared by 3 to 6 people.
