This program is designed for University students who want to learn Spanish through a linguistic immersion in Spain and its capital city, Madrid.
The experience puts together learning to communicate and practice the language through a total immersion in the Spanish culture. This is possible due to the daily routes around the city that we offer, along with practicing Spanish with specifically selected topics. Every day you will discover new places in a joint experience of talking about and visiting the most emblematic and magical places in the city of Madrid. Both the linguistic and the cultural activities will fully immerse you in the Madrid lifestyle.
