A Spanish school trip to Madrid will surely leave your students with a newfound enthusiasm for their studies!

Madrid, as the Spanish capital, is renowned for its fantastic variety of cultural attractions, including the Prado, Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Reina Sofia Museum, as well as the mass of art galleries and lively plazas that will give your students an authentic taste of Spanish culture and history. Students will also be able to put the theory of the classroom into practice with opportunities to converse with native speakers in real-life situations.

Nothing can beat the passion for the Spanish language that a Spanish school trip to Madrid can instil in your students – the beauty, history and culture in Madrid will have them hooked! And if you'd like them to really focus on improving their level of Spanish, perhaps in preparations for exams, we can also arrange lessons at a specialist language school.
