LAE Madrid is the kind of language school that makes you want to get out of bed and head over cause you know that every day it’s a new adventure. I took three months of intensive spanish course, (and still wish could have continued longer) which is 4 hours per day but always felt like 20 minutes.
My professor was Gabriel Pistarini and I salute him for getting down to our level and taking the time to learn about the likes and dislikes of each student and preparing classes accordingly. One gets to also interact and learn from a variety of professors as you also get to mingle with other groups and perform activities together thus making you more competent. The teachers are super creative and make each moment fun. I will never in my life forget about the time we reenacted ‘Que hora es’. Still makes me LOL. And re-writing the Manu Chao song! Very fond memories.
Other than that, you also get to meet very cool people from different walks of life and everyday is a new interesting conversation. You learn about diverse cultures, do’s and don’ts of various countries, gastronomy and how different phrases have complete different meanings. When you leave, you leave with a new list of contacts you can count on cause you know they had your back when you couldn’t figure out whether something was ‘ser’ or ‘estar’, ‘el’ or ‘la’ and so on.
Spanish can be a difficult language but LAE provides a fun, friendly, it’s-ok-to-make-mistakes environment, that will forever live in your heart.
