The language school,located in the business district in the city centre,is easily accessible from the four corners of the capital. This area, which is very pleasant to live in, offers a top-class framework for students who wish to study in Madrid. The school has been recently renovated and stands out with its clever blend of modernism and functionality. All of the classrooms are very well-equipped and enjoy a very good level of natural light. The students also benefit from common areas such as the cafeteria and a computer room with Internet access. These also offer programmes of media studies complimentary to the classes, where a system of on-line lessons permits students to continue to have access once they have finished their classes in Madrid.

Ich habe Spanien wiederentdeckt und bin begeistert, vor allem von den Regionen, die nicht besonders touristisch erschlossen sind. Sprachschule und Madrid als StaSt sehr empfehlenswert! Die Schüle ist empfehlenswert. Die Stühle in Schulungsräumen mit den Klapptischen bieten etwas wenig Platz für die Unterlagen. Gutes Lehrpersonal und gutes didaktisches Konzept. Es gibt sogar eine gute Cafeteria, die auch noch günstig ist.

International House, Madrid
Duration: 9 weeks

My two-month stay in Madrid was a very enriching and unforgettable experience. Madrid is a city where you can’t get bored… a trip to the museum, a drink in one of the many tapas bars or just enjoying the sun in the Retiro Park. The quality teaching I got at International House enabled me to make a lot of progress. Moreover, as Spaniards are warm and open, I was also able to make progress by talking to the locals. As my residence was the city centre, everything was within easy reach. What more could I ask for?

Santa Ana Residence
Opened in 1994 in the Chamberí district, around 10 minutes’ walk to the school, the Santa Ana residence welcomes Madrid college students as well as international Spanish learners. Its central location, just a few minutes to busy Paseo de la Castellana and transport links, make it an ideal starting point to explore Madrid. The residence includes 30 furnished, air-conditioned single rooms with private bathroom, along with several study rooms with TVs and coin-operated laundry facilities. You will have breakfast on site and enjoy free Wi-Fi access throughout the building. Supervised on a 24-hour basis, the residence provides linens and towels, with weekly housekeeping.

For all of the proposed activities, there is an emphasis on countless points of interest offered by the rich cultural heritage of the Spanish capital. Art lovers will be delighted with the wide choice of exhibitions and galleries that the city offers. Its political and historic situation rewards it not only the role of capital of Spain but also that of the Hispanic world. Every week, excursions outside of Madrid are organised and the school also proposes nights out to allow you to merge into the Madrid nightlife. The city has numerous clubs, theatres, concert halls, flamenco tablaos, cinemas and…Real Madrid!
