Everyone is so friendly and funny and focused on helping you learn, this is possibly the first time in my life I could use the words “fun” and “intense” to describe the same experience. 10/10, I would recommend LAE if you’re looking to do more than just learn a language, and want to experience the culture and make new friends as well.
Libby“fun” and “intense”!
What a brilliant course! My teacher created dynamic and energetic classes that kept me smiling, even through the dreaded subjunctive. The wide range of activities and games played ensures that there is a never a dull moment, and learning seems to be so much more organic. I’ve definitely learnt a lot! Thanks to my teacher’s patience and encouragement, I feel so much more confident to use it all. I couldn’t ask more. Thanks again.

Learning a new language can be a daunting challenge for anyone. Yet, when learning Spanish at LAE Madrid, rest assured you will find a fun and engaging classroom environment. At the same time, the material was challenging and stimulated my desire to learn and study. It was clear to me that the professors make sure students are in a class that suits their abilities. With everyone feeling comfortable and at ease, it is much easier to get your Spanish confidence up, which lets you really practice speaking during the class sessions.

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.

LAE Madrid has been vital to my journey in Spain, learning Spanish quickly is the most important thing when you want to integrate and enjoy your life in Madrid.
The teachers at LAE are very efficient at doing just that, Within one year I have reached an intermediate level and can easily have conversations.
Their methodology is very effective as they use a lot of games and audiovisuals to impart their knowledge and your mind learns a lot more while you are having fun.
The best thing I learned at LAE is to start thinking in Spanish and not to translate my sentences from English. I would recommend LAE Madrid to anyone who wants to have a strong foundation in Spanish and learn while they enjoy the language.

The classes at LAE Madrid have been fantastic for me. It was a great way to learn and I thoroughly enjoyed being in the classes and in the company of the teachers. What was important for me was that there was a very comfortable environment in the class which gave me confidence to speak in Spanish and be able to express myself. The teachers create a friendly atmosphere and are always there to help. The classes were also very enjoyable, yet challenging too, with a mixture of different materials contributing to making the experience very fun and engaging! It was a great experience and I picked up a lot from my lessons, thanks!

My La Aventura Española experience has been one of a kind. The professors and the staff are the friendliest persons I’ve met and they make you feel at ease. The ambiance during the courses are amazing. Throughout these courses, not only have I gained more confidence in Spanish but I also made a lot of good friends. I highly recommend you to embark in such an adventure. Even if it is for only 2 weeks, it’s amazing how much you can learn thanks in these courses (games+exercices) and the cultural activities. I give this school Five stars!

The teachers are “trocitos de pan” and the administrative staff is amazing. Be careful, this school is absolutely addicting. The teachers and staff are top notch! Most importantly they are dynamic and fun. I planned to stay 2 weeks, but stayed for 8!

I was in Intensive group for only two weeks over the holidays. The classes were perfect and exactly what I needed to force me to speak Spanish. Staff are great and very helpful. Irene, as a teacher, was enthusiastic and encouraging. So organized with a variety of activities. I really enjoyed her classes!
Diane Vagnini``What I needed...``
I spent 7 weeks this summer studying at LAE and had an extremely positive experience. I am a French professor in the US, so I can be pretty picky when it comes to language instruction, but I can say with complete sincerity that my two teachers at LAE--Maria and Susana--were top notch. They were both skilled at organizing fun and well-paced classes, with a range of activities designed to help students practice Spanish and increase their proficiency. I looked forward to coming to class every day and--even more importantly--I could see that I'd improved my Spanish in just a few weeks. What more could I ask for?
I'd like to add a special note of thanks to Susana, since she was the instructor I had for the majority of my time at LAE. Susana was extremely good at explaining tricky concepts and vocabulary in Spanish and at pointing out various aspects of Spanish culture. She's intelligent and engaged and knowledgeable and kind, it made us want to be around her and engage with her and with each other. I know the other students in my class felt the same.
Finally, I want to mention that LAE is also a very well run language school. The administrators are extremely organized and responsive. I never participated in any of the school's excursions or activities, but they offer a really nice range of things to do outside of class. I felt very supported during my time at LAE and will definitely come back if I have the opportunity!
