Pre-Arrival Language Test
All students fill out an online Spanish test prior to their arrival so they can be assigned to the right classes. If you have beginners Spanish, it’s still a good idea to take the test as it gives you a nice introduction to the course.

Choose between two types of accommodation in Madrid: Apartment or Host Family
The shared apartment is part of our concept of communicative learning and provides you with the opportunity to enjoy your free time activities in Madrid with the other students. If you communicate with your flat mates in Spanish, you can quickly and almost effortlessly improve your language skills. All apartments offer the choice of single rooms and double rooms. Bed linen is provided, but please bring your own towels. Course participants share the bathroom and kitchen with the other students, and cook for themselves.
If you choose the homestay option, you will have the chance to experience the Spanish way of life and the opportunity to practice your new language skills in conversation with individual family members. The host families are open, helpful and friendly. On your first day they will help you become familiar with your new daily life: keys, meal times, use of the washing machine etc. The family provides bed linen, but please bring your own towels.
