Expanish is a language school with a positive athmosphere, with small group sizes, personal support, a nice host family and located near the parc ‘El Retiro’, which is beautiful. A nice coffee bar (Religion) is on 5 minutes walking distance, to have a delicious cup of coffee during your break moments :) You can also easily walk in about half an hour to the interesting city centre neighbourhoods after your lessons.

Really enjoyed my time at Expanish. The teachers were great, school itself was really nice & the schools close to a lot of the main attractions in Madrid.

Would recommend the free afternoon activities that the Expanish do as well.

Muchisimas gracias

I really enjoyed my week in Madrid. The location and facilities are perfect, and all the staff are really friendly and helpful. The B1 class I was in had a good mix of conversation and grammar focus. One or two weeks is obviously not enough to master the subjunctive, and I still don’t find myself using it when speaking in spanish, but it was still good practice. One thing for improvement, personally I would’ve appreciated longer breaks I really enjoyed my week in Madrid.

I attended Expanish in Madrid for 7 weeks during the summer of 2023, and I had a great experience. The classes are relatively small, and the teachers are excellent. The teachers rotate every 2 weeks, so students experience different teaching styles. The administration and teachers are friendly and welcoming, and the building is very comfortable. I highly recommend Expanish Madrid! I attended Expanish in Madrid for 7 weeks during the summer of 2023, and I had a great experience.
