" I chose Sprachcaffe because my classmate who studied in this school recommended it to me. I compared this school with other private language schools in Madrid. Sprachcaffe has very good location, quite reasonable price and very nice services. Their staffs are very nice and patient to me when I was asking them details by email.
I like teachers in Sprachcaffe most. I’ve studied here for more than 3 months so far. Five teachers taught me in different courses. Although they have different teaching styles, they are all very patient to us. They encouraged each one of us to talk about our daily life here and special events we met, so that we can get familiar with classmates and improve our oral language skills quickly and easily. Take myself as an example, I even could not speak a simple sentence in my first lesson here but now I can go out alone in my daily life." Emily Lau (China)
I have chosen Sprachcaffe Madrid, because I had been studying in this school in Malta several years ago. Then I enjoyed it and, in general, I had no doubt that this time everything will be fine. So it turned out! I spent 3 weeks of January here, and although there were not many students, the school all the time prepared different joint activities: trips to museums, restaurants, salsa classes, etc. A huge advantage of the school is that it is located in the heart of Madrid, and the apartments are two floors lower than classrooms. I also want to admit the goodwill, friendliness and attentiveness of all the staff! Perhaps this feature is a general characteristic of all the Spanish people, but at this school it did particularly caught my eye! Thank you to all teachers and classmates for an unforgettable, very interesting and useful time!" Anna Shyapnikova (Russia)
"The school located in the center of Madrid, and since there is a Metro station very close to the school, it is convenient commuting to. The school is not too big and not too small, it’s a perfect size!Teachers are really kind, and their lesson is clear to understand well." Sawako Matsuoka (Japan)
