School Trips
Schools, institutes, student groups
Aimed at schools, universities and other educational institutions that send groups of students and teachers abroad to further boost their Spanish language skills - building on any knowledge already gained while studying in their respective home countries.

Our academy organizes study visits to Madrid as a way of motivating students and improving their Spanish at the same time. All of our staff are committed to making your stay in Madrid productive, safe and fun.

Our direct and interactive teaching style is based on communication, which means practical language use in real-life situations, and learning is easy, fun and efficient. The study programme is designed according to the wishes of the group's teachers and the needs of their students.

The extracurricular activities, just like the academic programme, can be chosen by the teachers and their students. Here are just a few of the various activities on offer: conferences (on history, art, literature, culture and society), workshops (writing, conversation), trips to museums, Real Madrid's stadium Santiago Bernabéu, Faunia (zoo and botanical gardens), trips to Toledo, Segovia and Salamanca, guided tours of Madrid, etc.

Alongside our academic programmes we also offer various extracurricular activities so students can have fun and learn at the same time.
