Intensive Spanish Programs in Madrid
Our Intensive Spanish courses are our most popular product. don Quijote’s unique teaching method has been developed and perfected over time to ensure that students learn the most Spanish possible through constant interaction and communication. Exercises can range from reading articles to giving interviews, reading or working on oral skills through listening to songs or conversations.
The General Intensive course consists of 4 classes a day from Monday through Friday while the Super Intensive course combines the General Intensive course with a Spanish Communication course for a total of 6 lessons a day. For those who already have a great grasp of Spanish grammar and wish to only improve their communication skills, the Spanish Communication course is a great option with only 2 lessons a day, leaving ample time to immerse oneself in the local culture.
Our Madrid school provides extensive options for students interested in focusing on specific Spanish skills. We can customize the perfect program for your group by adapting course content and even organizing specific excursions or cultural visits. We also provide specialized courses for those interested in taking the DELE exam, learning about History, Art or Literature, brushing up on their skills teaching Spanish, or improving Business Spanish. Additionally, students in Madrid can benefit from one-on-one teaching with our Private Spanish class packages.
An important part of learning a language is to familiarize and integrate oneself with the people and culture as much as possible. don Quijote facilitates this process not only through offering home stay experiences or free daily cultural classes, but also by providing students with fun programs that help them experience the local culture. In Madrid, students can learn to express themselves through different dance forms. Salsa classes will provide them with rhythm as they learn to move along with the famous fusion of Caribbean and Cuban beats; or they can experience the artistic expression of Flamenco, originating in Andalusia among the gypsy community, an art form that has been officially recognized by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
Every summer don Quijote hosts popular international summer camps filled with fun and excitement for kids and teens aged 5 to 18 years old. Foreign students learning Spanish will be integrated with up to 60% Spaniard students studying English to create the perfect immersion experience. We offer various program options including a full board residential experience, a day camp only possibility in which students do not sleep at camp facilities, or a language course only option.
Our summer camp in Madrid takes place at the prestigious Francisco de Vitoria University about 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) from the city center. The camp organizes full and half day excursions to nearby cities and places of interest such as El Escorial, Salamanca, Segovia, Toledo, Avila, or within Madrid. Also, in addition to all of the organized activities and workshops, campers can sign up at an extra cost to participate in sports like tennis, horseback riding and soccer.
