In the Salamanca district, in the center of Madrid, you will find the growing school AIL. The school is on the first floor of a modern building in a busy street in the luxury district of Goya - named after the Spanish master painter Francisco de Goya, whose works are often found in Spanish museums. Around the corner you will find the Retiro park, one of the largest parks in Madrid, which lends itself perfectly to escaping the hustle and bustle of the city center. In the school itself there is a Chill Out Room with lounge sofas where you can relax, learn and study between classes. Every teacher at the school has Spanish as their mother tongue, so they teach with ease and without any accent. The school attaches great value to the structure and quality of the lessons, which are therefore always well prepared and interactive.

I completed an intensive course last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was assigned to a level B2 class, which seemed right.

My two main teachers were friendly, enthusiastic and responded well to our needs. They explained exercises well, but also allowed us to deviate from the tasks for interesting discussion on related topics. My private lesson teachers were similarly good. Lastly the optional activities were well led and usually very interesting. I also found the the admin staff very pleasant and efficient, and generally felt well-looked after. Even with only 5 days I believe my fluency and understanding of spoken Spanish improved significantly. I can't think of anything to grumble about !

Maria, our second teacher, did a great job helping us approach the complexity of conjugating verbs in Spanish! No easy task and we learned a lot! We also enjoyed lots of conversation which helped us understand the Spanish education system. Very interesting! Thank you so much Carolina and Maria for your dedication, competence and kindness!.
And thank you to the AIL administration which was very helpful, and professional!
AIL is a truly an impressive language school!
