I have taken Spanish lessons twice at Academia Contacto in Madrid. Both times have truly been fantastic experiences, and I am so happy to have discovered a Spanish academy that is so dedicated to its students and their learning. The teachers are highly qualified and experienced foreign language instructors, and they understand how to work with a variety of different learning styles and student demographics. Class sizes are large enough for diverse and vibrant interactions, but small enough to give each student personalized attention (5-8 students normally).

I appreciated how there were a variety of classes and levels offered, so that I always felt pushed to improve my Spanish without feeling as though the class was too easy or difficult for my level. Both times I chose to do 20 hrs of classroom instruction with 5 hrs of individual lessons. I enjoyed this option since it allowed me to practice multiple types of language skills while focusing on specific areas I needed to improve in. It was especially enjoyable getting to know my teachers, and the one-on-one lessons enabled me to greatly improve my conversation skills on a variety of subjects. I always felt that my teachers were prepared, knowledgeable about their language, and truly cared about their students. The instructors are not simply native Spaniards, but true masters of their language who understand the grammar and how to teach it to foreign learners.

For both of my visits I opted to stay in housing arranged by Academia Contacto. I selected a single room in a shared apartment, which meant that I was given my own room within a larger apartment shared with other individuals studying in Madrid. The accommodations were comfortable and located not far from the academy and other places of interest. The school itself is very centrally located and easy to get to, with great classrooms and a very modern/professional feel that made me feel comfortable and at home. The language school is mostly attended by Europeans in their 20s-30s, but also attracts some Americans and individuals from other regions. I found the students at the school to be friendly, interesting, and open to conversation.

Overall, an incredible language Academy, and I can't wait to come back! As an American, it can sometimes be scary to commit to something abroad, but taking lessons at Academia Contacto has definitely been a great choice.

I've been taking classes here for 2 weeks, I'm a beginner (A1). The school is great, the classrooms are clean, and the staff and teachers are friendly. The course is well designed, and the Spanish is specific to Spain. I'm taking the intense course and I've learn a lot very quickly. Also, Laura is a great teacher! I'm very happy with my decision to take classes here.

I spent three weeks at the school in fall 2019 and my spanish improved immensely! Lessons focused on practical and relevant information that was immediately applicable to life in Madrid. The teachers were attentive, knowledgeable, and made the classes highly interactive. Also was a great place to meet other language learners and make friends, with a host of activities the school recommended every day of the week.

A small, well-organized school. Close to metro station. The staff is pleasant and welcoming. I studied there for two weeks during August, and I felt that my Spanish was improved. In my personal experience, one teacher was less good, but another teacher was excellent. Also, there were days when the class was with too many students. In my opinion up to 6-7 students it is excellent, but there were days when there were 9-10 students which is too much. Overall I was very pleased and I recommend this school.

One of the best language schools I have ever been to.
Very friendly atmosphere in class, central location and perfect balance between grammar / exercises and conversation. The professor encourages talking in class, brings supplementary materials to clarify the most difficult points and uses media contents as a support to teaching, enabling students to improve on a daily basis. Alba, my professor, was extremely passionate, dedicated and made us enjoy every single day in class. She also organized out of class dinners and activities. I am really grateful for the good time spent in the class and for the progress in my knowledge of spanish. I would definitely recommend this school to all spanish learners and would be glad to come back here in the future.
