Andrea is a guest blogger, Madrid enthusiast, and AIL Madrid evening course student. As a French girl who just recently arrived in Madrid, she faced to some linguistic issues that led her to take AIL Evening Spanish Classes twice a week after work.
I arrived in Madrid for an internship almost 3 months ago but I ha
ve to admit that, at the beginning, I didn’t have a strong handle on the Spanish language. For that reason, I wanted to take some Spanish classes but, as I was working the whole day, finding appropriate Spanish classes was pretty difficult. I decided the AIL Madrid Spanish evening course was the best solution, as it took place after my job and was located in the center of the city (Calle Nuñez de Balboa, nearby Retiro Park). In fact, with an hour and a half of Spanish course twice a week (Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday), it allows you to learn more vocabulary and grammatical constructions very fast- so much so that your Spanish friends will be shocked by your quick progress!!
What I really appreciated is the small numbers of course participants (maximum 8, though there are 5 in my case) which is why everyone learns to express themselves easily and can participate constantly during any one class. What’s more, classes are available for any level (from A1 to C1) and the atmosphere is perfect, since we all come to class with a relaxed mood to improve our grammar and conversation skills. We are all professionals, international students, expats… and, for us, Spanish is a necessity!!
These AIL Spanish classes have formed part of my Spanish experience in Madrid for 6 months now: indeed, I learned many daily Spanish vocabulary words and expressions that I now hear myself using
every day. After a few classes, they also hugely improved my ability to work in a Spanish environment. So don’t hesitate and sign up for AIL Madrid Spanish evening courses– I’ll see you in class!
