Program Overview

Madrid, a city where tradition and modernity are just a few steps away, offers a rich artistic heritage and a stimulating cosmopolitan life.

The unique spirit of Madrid is both serene and lively, making it a captivating place to learn Spanish and absorb centuries of Iberian culture. Students will take intensive and accelerated courses in Spanish language and culture, with planned activities, visits to museums, excursions and a three-day trip to Salamanca to highlight Spain’s incredible history and beautiful scenery.
