I was travelling for only 1 week and, frankly speaking, did not expect much progress. I studied Spanish long time ago and forgot everything) However, to my great surprise, in Madrid I started speaking Spanish immediately! The teachers at Academia Contacto are great (Anjela was my teacher) and the conversational classes are very effective. I just couldn't imagine I would be able to make a whole presentation in Spanish (it was one of the tasks)!

The school is small with family atmosphere. The staff knows every single student and you may address to them if you have any question. The classes are small, in mine there were about 6-7 students at grammar classes and 3-4 at conversational ones, which is a mini-group.

Every evening from Monday to Friday we were offered some activities - they were rather dynamic and, which is good, most of them were free. I went to karaoke and also to an intersting event- Meet and Speak where people from different countries gather and speak Spanish.

I liked the accommodation, too. I lived not far from the city centre in a student flat in a private house. The housemistress was very nice and she liked to have a chat with me. I was pleased to hear that my Spanish is good and I almost don't have accent.

So I highly recommend this school!

Ich bin nach Madrid gekommen, um Spanisch sprechen zu lernen, da wir an meiner Universität vor allem die Grammatik durchnehmen. Ich kann diese Schule nur empfehlen, da wir während des Unterrichts die spanische Grammatik je nach Sprachniveau wiederholen, wobei jedoch der Fokus auf dem Sprechen liegt, was mir sehr gut gefällt! Wir reden über verschiedene interessante Themen, wobei jeder zu Wort kommt und seine Meinung ausser kann. Der Chef und alle Lehrerinnen sind sehr nett und offen.

I spent one month doing a Spanish language course at Academia Contacto in Madrid. I learned a lot, because the professors there have a lot of a experience, they are young, kind and helpful. I can guarantee that I spent there a very good time and I also learned a lot. After classes, you will never get bored because the school offers many interesting free-time activities.

I recommend Academia Contacto to everyone who would like to study Spanish in a great atmosphere.

I attended Academia Contacto in order to improve my Spanish conversation skills and I am very happy with the outcome. The professors are very good and highly qualified and the school has a great environment both inside and outside the classroom: a big number of international students from all over the world and lots of after class activities, such as trips to museums and even excursions to close-by towns. Furthermore, the school arranged my accommodation and all related issues, and everything went fine. Overall, I had a great experience in Madrid and even made some new friends. I totally recommend it!!
