The school is closed on the following public holidays. Group lessons are not made up or refunded.

When courses start on Tuesday, instead of Monday due to a public holiday, students will take their placement test and go on a tour of the city on the Monday.
4 cultural activities per week (Museum visits, wine and tapas tasting, traditional dinner,
flamenco show, etc.) and an Excursion to Toledo
Placement tests take place usually between 9.00 am and 10.45 am. Students taking morning group classes will then receive two lessons that first day, from 11.00 am. If you are timetabled to have afternoon group lessons you will have the full 4 lessons on the first day, from 3.30 pm. This only applies to the first day of the course for group courses. Whether you are assigned to a morning or afternoon group lessons is entirely dependent on your placement test and ability and is not a matter of personal choice.
To be confirmed
When studying in Madrid you can choose to live with local Spanish hosts to give you the best exposure to Spanish culture and the language out of class or select to stay in a 2* or 3* Pension or local Hotel (all categories) if you’d prefer your own space.
Arrive: Sunday PM
Depart: Saturday AM
We recommend students fly to Madrid’s Barrajas airport and then take a taxi, bus or train/metro to their accommodation. Public transport in Madrid is good value for money, efficient (allowing for traffic congestion) and easy to tackle even if this is your first visit to Spain. You are welcome to take the college transfer service at additional cost from Madrid airport to your accommodation if preferred (one or two way service offered).
