Spanish and Internship

My name is Paloma and I have been teaching Spanish at AIL Madrid since 2007. I’m from Madrid, this is where I grew up and studied, but before joining the School I went on an amazing adventure in Thessaloniki, Greece. I experienced so much there and there are no words to describe how beneficial it is, both professional and personally, to live abroad.

AIL Madrid has more than 10 years of experience providing Spanish courses and internships to candidates from different backgrounds and countries. Our intensive courses are accredited by Cervantes Institute and offer you the opportunity to improve your language level quickly and successfully. All our teachers are Spanish highly experienced and native speakers.
