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.
AIL recommends staying with a Spanish host family for students wanting to learn Spanish quickly and get the most out of their Spanish course in Madrid. Staying with a Spanish family allows you to be totally immersed in the Spanish lifestyle and customs in a relaxed and comfortable environment conducive to study.
You will find your Spanish hosts welcoming, kind, talkative and friendly. Many of our students stay in touch with their Spanish host family after leaving Madrid.

AIL ’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.
You will be able to contact our support team at any time during your stay. And, if for any reason a student is unhappy in a host family, they will be moved, no questions asked.
Staying in a host family is ideal for students who are looking for a culturally enriching experience, giving you independence in your host family, as well as making friends in our school.
