Experience the novelty of becoming a student in a typical Spanish Secondary school, while visiting some of Madrid´s most famous sights, including the famous Theme park “ Parque de Atracciones”.

In this programme the student does not take just Spanish lessons, but Maths, History,... in Spanish from Monday to Friday. It is a very intensive programme in which the student, aside from living with a Spanish host family, spends 5-6 hours every day at a Spanish secondary school, learning new vocabulary related to every school subject. This way he/she is experiencing new friendships as well as being introduced to the most characteristic features of the Spanish culture and life, allowing him/her to gain greater experience about the global world.
