October 26, 2015 | Blog, Education

Learn Spanish with hundreds of language schools to choose from in the capital city, Madrid,  it can be overwhelming to decide which is the best for you. Dominique, a regular blogger for MumAbroad Life takes you through a few top places that offer flexible Spanish lessons that fit around family life.

Learning the Lingo

La Aventura Española

This language school adapts to fit around a new Mum in Madrid’s pace of life. There are classes to suit every need and every timetable. They have recently launched a special service to families re-locating to Madrid so that the children can learn Spanish at the same time as their parents, with them learning similar material so that they can practice together afterwards. They can also talk the family through the school system here and what to expect. In other words, LAE gives support in the areas that are not traditionally the business of language schools… perhaps this is because the owner is a mum and foreigner herself and knows how frustrating those first few years can be!

The best thing about Sampere is the emphasis on Spanish culture, from the basic (what does “musica bacalao” mean?) to the sublime (guided tours around museums and galleries). This language school offers intensive sessions for those who require a thorough grounding; with more relaxed classes on offer for students who are juggling language learning with a busy family or work schedule. The language school is located on a stately street in Madrid’s Salamanca district, an area full of boutiques, cafés, galleries and health & beauty salons. It is also only a stone’s throw from the Retiro Park. Speaking purely subjectively, this contributor to Mum Abroad Life would much rather take language classes in this part of town than in Sol or Gran Via!
