Overall
Ich habe 11 Monate dieses Jahres an der Schule AIL verbracht. Die Zeit hier war für mich einfach grandios. Die Schule bietet alles, was einem hilft, sich in einem „fremden“ Land einzuleben. Neben dem Erlernen der spanischen Sprache wird hier auch ein immenses Pensum an Freizeitaktivitäten angeboten. Ich habe an der Schule sehr viele Menschen kennengelernt und die Motive eine Sprachschule im Ausland zu besuchen waren sehr unterschiedlich. Aber in einem waren wir uns alle einig. Die Qualität der Schule ist einzigartig. Die Professoren bei AIL sind meiner Meinung nach die besten, die man sich vorstellen kann. Ein jeder von ihnen versucht, auf die speziellen Wünsch und Bedürfnisse der Gruppe einzugehen, was nicht immer leicht ist, aber sie machen das mit sehr viel Charme und Professionalität gleichzeitig. Man kann hier Spanisch lernen, nebenbei sehr viel Spaß haben und auch Freunde finden. Die Schule liegt sehr zentral, aber auch in der Nähe des bekannten „Retiro-Parks“, wo man in der Mittagspause die Seele baumeln lassen kann und das gelernte nochmal verinnerlichen kann. Ich kann AIL nur an jeden empfehlen, der sein Spanisch verbessern oder aber von Grund auf lernen möchte.

Pros
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.
Cons
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 :)

Overall
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!

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.

Course: 1 weeks, 8 hours/week, homestay, May 2015
AIL Madrid
5/5
Overall
Fui a AIL Madrid una semana en mayo de 2015, en un grupo de nivel B1. Aprecié la organización durante toda la estancia. Me asignaron una familia acogedora cerca de la escuela. La escuela estaba situada en el centro de Madrid cerca de transportes públicos y de parques, museos y edificios históricos. Estaba en un grupo de mi nivel con estudiantes de diferentes países, lecciones bien construidas con un equilibrio entre gramática, vocabulario y conversación, preposiciones de actividades extra y lecciones que permiten el descubrimiento de algunos aspectos de Madrid, así como crear relaciones de convivencia con algunos estudiantes.

La semana pasó demasiado rápida, pero he hecho algunos progresos para atreverme a hablar y a construir frases correctas. He querido también visitar a Madrid durante el tiempo libre.

Con una “low cost” compañía el viaje no es demasiado caro. El coste total de la semana fue razonable.

Una única semana es una buena experiencia y buena solución para aprender la lengua.

Can't speak highly enough of AIL!!

Only spent 4 weeks there and wish I'd spent more, will definitely be going back.

Jesus was my teacher and he was brilliant, I started out as a low intermediate in Spanish and am now speaking confidently with Spanish people.

If you want to improve your Spanish and explore an amazing city, definitely go to AIL!!!

5/5
Overall
I cannot believe a month has already passed since I came to Madrid. I thoroughly enjoyed the one week that I spent at AIL Madrid. My teacher, Ana, was excellent and overall I received a very favourable impression of AIL. It is difficult just parachuting in for one week but and my school  teachers over here say that it has given me a lot more confidence with my Spanish (in fact my teacher has been considering sending her own daughter to do something similar with you next Feb.)

I would also like to thank you for finding us such wonderful accommodation. Lourdes was an absolute star and so kind, making me vegetarian food every evening. She is an extremely nice woman - and her son was lovely too.The position of her flat was great. Our accommodation really couldn't have been better.

Overall
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!!!

Overall
During the summer I have had 3 weeks of semi intensive course at AIL. Before arriving to Madrid I have had contact with Hugo from the AIL team and I can not be more satisfied with the way I was helped by email/phone. He took all the time to answer all my questions and explained everything that I needed to know. Upon arrival I met the AIL team and my class. My class consisted of 8 students and we had an amazing time during and after the classes. In general the program is intensive, although it depends on the teachers and their teaching methods. This is great because you can choose what type of method suits you best. In my experience the AIL team is quite flexible and willing to help! 

In addition there are interesting and fun after class activities that will make your stay in Madrid even more fun!
