Susana, Director of Studies, talks about the Intensive Course

¡Hola a todos! My name is Susana Marqués and I would like to talk about our Intensive Spanish Course

The majority of our students choose the Intensive Spanish Course as it offers them the right balance between classroom study, self-study and of course enough free time to explore Madrid in all its beauty. This course is the perfect recipe for fast results since classes are taught at a quick pace and of course completely in Spanish - so you are immersed in the language from your very first step into the classroom! It´s an excellent teaching technique that actively engages you in what you learn, making it a lot easier to memorise.

We meet for four class a day, where we work on improving your communication skills, widening vocabulary, learning useful phrases and practicing grammar, whilst getting to know each other better, every day.

The priority is making sure every student takes on board the day's key learning points to return home not only having significantly improved their Spanish but also with a suitcase full of laughter and good memories.

So why not come along and study with us! I look forward to welcoming you into my class!
