AIL Madrid is here not only to help you achieve your goals, but to go way beyond them: we will send you on an unforgettable immersion experience that will soon have you dreaming in Spanish!
It is vital that you develop the full range of Spanish skills, so we make sure you have a balance of conversation, listening, reading, and writing activities throughout the program. The classes also feature interactive games, debates, music, and films! You will be amazed how quickly your Spanish comes to life as you work through a whole range of practical situations and you will soon feel as comfortable interacting in the bars, restaurants, and shops of Madrid as you do in the classroom! The Madrileños love to talk, and we will give you the skills to get you talking with them!
But your education doesn't stop there: The Spanish language means so much more when you understand Spain's unique history and culture. A big part of your AIL Madrid experience are the daily fun after class activities in Spanish such as educational workshops, cooking classes, visits to Madrid's finest museums, as well as guided tours of the city's historic neighborhoods. We want to take you to the heart of Madrid, because we know you're going to love it!
We also want to make sure you leave with a mountain of new friends and memories that will have you smiling when you're back home in the frozen food isle, at the gas station, or sat on the bus on a grey Monday morning: our Welcome Tapas evening on the first day of class, and the notorious "Fiesta con AIL" every Friday are a guaranteed way to get to know your fellow students from around the world! All in the company of the exceptionally friendly AIL team!
