Course: 2 weeks, 15 hours/week, homestay, September 2015
Hello, everyone! If you are reading my review now, you are obviously thinking about your further education. It is a ticklish question and an important choice. As for me, several months ago I made up my mind and chose a Spanish school in Madrid. Lucky I am! Ailola Madrid School justified my hopes to the full extent. The school I attended for 2 weeks gave me a great opportunity to travel, to learn a foreign language of this country and different academic disciplines. With a wonderful team of talented teachers I could not only study, but I also knew many interesting facts about the Spanish culture and its people. Many remarkable people who I made friends with are true beyond question. My new good friends are from all over the world. We share many topics and interests and fortunately we have much in common. It’s a pleasure to communicate with people of different nationalities in the same language when you learn Spanish together and you are on one level with them. I got unforgettable impressions when got acquainted with Madrid myself. The capital and one of the largest cities of Spain is worth visiting. It’s rarely warm in autumn in Russia, so Madrid made me feel happy and comfortable during my study there. What is more, I developed my knowledge of Spanish greatly and now I feel easy talking to my foreign colleagues. Ailola Madrid School, thank you a million for my self-reliance and great success in my career and work!
I visited Ailola Madrid in July this year for 2 weeks. I stayed in a shared flat with two other girls (one from the US and one from South Korea). I have never been to Madrid before and it's a great place.
The school was excellent, too. It is not directly in the city center but just a few subway stations away. At the end it was perfect because in July Madrid bursts of tourists and it was great to be in an area where you heard mostly Spanish and could use it when buying something.
I had classes in the morning. My teachers have been very good and "funny". We have been just 6 students in the class which was perfect to advance with my Spanish.
In the afternoon the school offered activities like Salsa classes, visits to restaurants and tapas bars, etc. which I joined several times. Sometimes we (my companions in the apartment) did things on our own like traveling one weekend to Toledo.
All in all I can recommend the school and team. If I travel again to Spain, I would book again with Ailola Madrid but taking also some private lessons to practice more speaking.

Good teachers, great location and prices have been affordable
Next time I would take extra private lessons because in the group lessons you have limited opportunity to practice speaking
