Gerne hätte ich , wie schon gesagt, eine Einschätzung der Lehrkräfte gehabt, wie ich mich verbessert habe. Ich wurde B.1.2/3 eingestuft für die Kurse. Gewiss hat sich meine aktive Sprachfähigkeit gesteigert, aber auch wegen des Aufenthalts in der Gastfamilie ( es wurde nur Spanisch gesprochen, die Gastgeberin hat mich auch verbessert und deutlich gesprochen ) und des Lebens in Madrid für 1 Woche. Die Gastfamilie war genial, der Wohnort kaum zu toppen. Ich habe mich wie daheim gefühlt!!!!! Wie schon erwähnt hatte ich großes Glück mit meiner Gastfamilie. Ich konnte reden, musste aber nicht. Es ging sehr herzlich zu. Mir wurde alles hergerichtet, so konnte ich essen, wann ich wollte. Teilweise haben wir aber auch zusammen zu Abend gegessen. Auf meine Wünsche wurde geachtet. Abends wurde immer frisch gekocht. Das Zimmer war mit eigenem kleinen Bad. Super! Zudem sehr ruhig gelegen und optimal von der Verkehrsanbindung. 5 Minuten zu Fuß zur Schule und auch zur U-Bahn. Zu Fuß nahe einem tollen Viertel. Auch vom Flughafen sehr einfach mit der U-Bahn zu erreichen. Ich war echt begeistert!!! Danke.

Don Quijote, Madrid
Duration: 4 weeks

Madrid is an amazing town. The peaceful “Parc del Retiro” is a great place to have a walk, go jogging or lie down on the grass and enjoy the sunshine while chatting with your friends from school.

Host family
Host families are located about 30 minutes from the school and will provide you with a single room with half-board. This experience will not only allow you to practise your Spanish on a daily basis, but also to get to know the authentic Madrileño lifestyle: their customs, food and everyday language. Staying with a host family is the best way to improve your Spanish outside of class.

Shared apartments
Shared apartments are a very popular option in Spain and give you the opportunity to live with other international students. You will stay in a single room and share the living room, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom with your flatmates. The apartments each have a TV and washing machine. This is a sociable way to live and meet people from all over the world.

Spain’s cosmopolitan capital offers an abundance of opportunities, whatever your tastes. Legendary museums including the Reina Sofia, Thyssen and Prado are full to bursting with masterpieces, reflecting the longstanding association between Madrid and fine art. After class, you could also take a relaxing stroll through the lush Retiro Park or the Winter Gardens of the Royal Palace. Madrid’s shops are second to none and the local nightlife is legendary, whether you want to enjoy a rooftop bar in the warm evening air, tapas of all varieties or nightclubs that start late and end much, much later.
