Accommodation

Host Family

Living with a Spanish host family is a great way to experience life in Madrid, learn more about Spanish culture, and of course, an additional opportunity to improve your Spanish. We recommend staying with a Spanish host family for students who want to learn Spanish quickly and get the most out of their Spanish course in Madrid. Staying with a Spanish family allows you to be totally immersed in the Spanish lifestyle and customs in a relaxed and comfortable environment conducive to study.

You will find your Spanish hosts welcoming, kind, talkative and friendly. Many of our students stay in touch with their Spanish host family after leaving Madrid and become lifetime friends. You will learn the delights of Spanish cuisine eating typical Spanish dishes prepared by your Spanish family. Breakfast and dinner are included.

The school will ask you to complete a questionnaire two weeks prior to your arrival. This will allow them to identify your preferences and dislikes (such as smoking, pets, young children) and enable them to ensure you are placed with a suitable Spanish family.

Students should be prepared to adapt to the rules and ways of life of the Spanish family (such as meal times). You will be given your own keys so you are free to come and go as you please. Guests are prohibited. Host families can be couples or single people, with or without children.

Students can choose between a single or shared room (if sharing with a friend) on a half-board (breakfast and evening meal) basis.

Shared flat

We recommend shared apartments for independent students who enjoy being able to cook for themselves. In pleasant residential areas of Madrid, these simply furnished apartments offer great value self-catering accommodation and the opportunity to meet other young international students, travellers and working people.

The shared flats typically consist of 4 or 5 bedrooms.

Students can choose from a single room, shared room or a shared room for single use.
