It was a great experience for me AIL Madrid

I spent 11 months in AIL. It was a great experience for me. This school offers everything to make living in a foreign country easier for you. Besides learning the Spanish language they offer a huge variety of leisure time activities. I got to know a lot of people in this school and the motivation to visit a language school in a foreign country was a different one for each of them. But there was always a common agreement amongst all of us: The quality of AIL is great. The teachers are the best ones I’ve ever had. Each one tries to take into consideration the wishes and needs of all of the students, which is not an easy thing, but they manage and they do it with a lot of charm and professionalism at the same time. One can learn Spanish at this school, have a lot of fun and even make friends. The school is situated quite central but also beside a huge park, called Retiro-Park. An incredible place to chill out during lunch time and to recuperate the Spanish you learned during the day. I just can recommend AIL for everyone that wants to improve his Spanish knowledge or also for those who want to learn the language from the very beginning.

Me matriculé en la escuela AIL por pura casualidad... AIL Madrid
This review was found useful by 4 users 5
by Francesca, 39 years old from Venice, Italy
Course details: 4 weeks, 20 hours/week, shared flat, September 2014
Tras una serie de llamadas a escuelas de idiomas en Madrid, encontré una chica muy maja al teléfono que me explicó muy rápido las ventajas de AIL e intentó además entender mis palabras incoherentes en español: decidí que aquella tenía que ser mi escuela de español.
Entonces, imaginar volver después de muchos años a una clase con estudiantes con los que no compartes nada menos tus faltas gramaticales no me apetecía mucho...De verdad, desde el primer día la escuela y las clases me gustaron mucho, y de repente cambié mi opinión: podía aprender y conocer a gente, que como yo, también sentía la necesidad de comunicarse a través de palabras (pocas) , sonrisas (muchas), y gestos (sólo entre algunas nacionalidades en particular ;).
Los compañeros de clase eran todos simpáticos, aunque al principio demasiado callados. Me acuerdo que las conversaciones durante la primera semana se desarrollaban sólo en el tiempo presente: no conocíamos otro tiempo verbal. Me encantaba esta situación: nadie tenía planes, ni pasado, pero todos estábamos muy centrados en vivir el momento.
Si alguien quiere aprender español en Madrid, AIL es una excelente oportunidad para estudiar, conocer gente y descubrir Madrid a través de las actividades sociales organizadas por la escuela durante la tarde y a veces por la noche.
Lo que más aprecié de AIL fue la metodología de la enseñanza, que parecía más una charla entre amigos que una lección.
Lo que más me gustó de AIL fue que el profesor nunca se rió de nuestra manera de hablar, que de verdad, a menudo no tenía ninguna lógica (un besito a Edu)
Lo que AIL podría mejorar son las bromas de algunos profesores (No te enfades Edu)

¡Que todos los próximos estudiantes tengan tanta suerte como yo y puedan disfrutar de una escuela tan buena como esta!
Lo que más me sorprendió de AIL fue la paciencia del personal de la recepción que siempre tenía respuesta aunque no entendiera la pregunta (bravo a Francesca, Roxana, Laura y los demás..)

Course details: 2 weeks, 20 hours/week, homestay, December 2013
I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 weeks in AIL Madrid. Not only was I placed in the appropriate level, the pace and quality of teaching is superb. Cultural activities were really interesting as well, giving us a glimpse of life in Madrid.

I strongly recommend AIL Madrid to anyone looking for a good learning experience. I must add that their customer service is quite excellent and you should contact them for any clarifications.

I would def go back AIL Madrid

Course details: 6 weeks, 20 hours/week, shared flat, November 2013
I had the time of my life and my Spanish just bounced forward!
1. The teachers I had (Nacho and Edu) were genuinely interested in my progress and went the extra mile to ensure that all students understood everything. If this meant spending an extra 5-10 minutes after class repeating, they were more than happy too.
2. The extra-curricular activities. I have studied Spanish in Malaga, Salamanca and Argentina so having activities is in itself nothing special - but these activities were. Each day there was something really different, from walking tours, to tapas tasting from Cervantes and don Quijote to bullfighting.... I could carry on, but won't. I would like to stress than the activities combined being fun and stimulating whilst being a fun way to make friends and created a real buzz in the school.
I have to say it is very difficult to find fault with AIL Madrid, but I am demanding and NOTHING is absolutely perfect so if I am being hüber critical I would say that they should invest in vending machines with drinks and snacks. It is not a biggy at all because there is a cafeteria just in front and all the students hang there at break tome and after class, but AIL if you read this, you have my tip :)

Great time at AIL AIL Madrid

by Annie, 24 years old , France
Course details: 1 weeks, 20 hours/week, shared flat, April 2013
I had a great time at AIL. The courses were good. The teacher, Asun was really nice! I made some new friends and got to tour around Madrid and discover new places.
It was a really good experience that I hope to start again soon.
That the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming, with intensive work.
Not that I can think of.

Course details: 4 weeks, 16 hours/week, private flat, March 2013
I have recently finished a four week intensive as a complete beginner. I wanted to say that I had a fantastic time. The amount of structure combined with friendliness and flexibility from all of the staff gave a fresh and professional feel to the school. I felt welcome in a place which has the potential to be rather intimidating to a new learner of Spanish, so many thanks- one to pass on to all of the staff.

By far the most important component to this, however, was Lucia. She was my teacher for the four weeks and was an exemplary teacher. I am not sure that I saw her become frustrated even once. Her activities and demeanor were always fun and engaging. She would go out of her way to give me extra material when I asked and would happily mark this work or sit with me to go through it. She was accomplished at recognising needs and tailoring activities to specific persons when required.

As a teacher myself it was refreshing to see and experience this from Lucia and the staff as a whole.

Course details: 4 weeks, 20 hours/week, shared flat, December 2012
I enjoyed very much my one-month stay in Madrid. It really gave a push to my Spanish, the Ail Madrid teachers are excellent and they give to the students not only an accurate taste of the Spanish language but also an insight in Spanish culture. All the team is very nice and helping, they give you the feeling of "family", a warm and homely atmosphere.
excellent teachers, warm atmosphere

Una semana inolvidable AIL Madrid
5
by Daniela, 37 years old from Prague, Czech Republic
Course details: 1 weeks, 20 hours/week, , January 2013
En AIL Madrid pasé una semana y fue estupendo. Quería mejorar sobre todo mi expresión oral y comprensión auditiva y creo que, a pesar de poco tiempo, realmente hice un progreso. Durante las clases todos los estudiantes tenían la oportunidad de hablar y la aprovechaban. Mi maestra Susanna era maravillosa, una gran profesional con mucha experiencia de enseňar, siempre de buen humor y sonrisa en la cara. Asistí también a las clases de actividades culturales por las tardes y fue estupendo también. Me encantó la clase de interpretación de canciones espaňolas donde me enteré de muchas cosas nuevas de la historia de Espaňa. Otro día disfruté mucho de la excursión guiada a la ciudad de Alcalá, fue muy divertido. Durante el curso conocí a muchas personas nuevas, estudiantes de todos los edades y de varios países del mundo. En total, me enriqueció mucho, gracias a toda la escuela!
- profesores profesionales con mucha pasión de enseňar
- ambiente familiar, muy agradable
- gran variedad de actividades culturales superinteresantes

I studied 6 weeks in AIL Madrid, and I improved my Spanish a lot. Thanks to my great teacher, which I think was the best teacher I have ever had in my life. I learned Spanish really good, and I understand and speak Spanish now in such a short time quite good. The classes were really good, absolutely!!! Beside that the school organizes many other things and they help the students in all kind of issues. When I came to Spain I did not expect that there a school can be so professional. The staff is very friendly, and for every question they will help you. So go to AIL Madrid!!! You will see that you did the right choice!!!
Very special is that the classes are very good, and there is every day a special activity program. I never saw this in a school before. Absolutely positive!!!
