WHY MADRID

Madrid is the political, legal and the economic center of the country, and one of the leading capitals in Europe and is ideally situated by its geography to facilitate excursions to all other worthwhile points of this fascinating country.

Madrid is also the city for museum visits, classical and modern theatre, tapas, endless gathering and other cultural activities.  Over the summer the main avenues of Madrid are filled with outdoor cafes to chat with people around the world.

Madrid is a cosmopolitan city, a city with an open character and a meeting point of different nationalities and cultures.  That’s Madrid, the world capital of the Spanish language, a language that is becoming more and more essential throughout all disciplines.

Students from around the world find Madrid an exceptional place to learn and a language that is already spoken by more than 400 million people worldwide.  Exhibitions, shows and an endless array of artistic initiatives and leisure activities, help those who visit Madrid to improve their linguistic skills and increase their knowledge of the Spanish culture.

Furthermore, it is home to some of the most renowned institutions aimed at nurturing and promoting the Spanish language, such as the National Library or the Cervantes Institute.  The latter bears the name of the author of Don Quixote, who lived in the very city and where he put the finishing touches to his great masterpiece.
