I love this school!! I had such a good experience here. First of all, I learned more spanish than I ever have in any other spanish class. This was due to the small class size and the amount of time we spent actually practicing speaking spanish in class. All the staff are the nicest & coolest people.

It was a great support network for me after moving to Madrid on my own. I really would recommend it to anyone of any level of Spanish as they have classes for all levels. Thank you to all the wonderful teachers who made my experience so great.

I just recently completed a full academic year at Luis Vives from September 2018 to June 2019 and I highly recommend it if you REALLY want to leave Spain SPEAKING Spanish. All classes are authentically taught ALL in Spanish. This is the best way to get the most out of your money and really learn the language as if it were your own. It’s hard at first, but it’s the most strategic and effective way to becoming fluent. The staff really have it figured out here. They are always incredibly prepared and organized. Every single professor has their own unique style of teaching that in a special way matches their personality. It’s super cute, and so great. The friendliness level is also off the charts.

Not only this, they have uncountable resources on Madrid! Everything you might want to know to help you find your way around, make your living situation easier, where to go to get a SIM card, and best anything, they can help you with. I can not overstate this. Prices are relatively the same as they are at other schools in the area, too.

You MUST give Luis Vives a chance! It’s incredible!
