Cultural & Educational Programs for Foreigners

Have you dreamed of coming to Madrid to learn a bit of Spanish, visit its fantastic museums and artistic exhibitions, taste the extraordinary Spanish gastronomy and also get to know the city and its people?

At The British Academy we have two programs to satisfy your tastes. They will be the following:

  1. Spanish Lessons & TAPAS Tasting
  2. Madrid Art & Language Tour

Next we will describe each oner of them:

1. Spanish Lessons & TAPAS Tasting

We will start the day with easy-to-follow Spanish classes from Monday to Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in our academy in Calle Alcalá in Madrid with professors accredited by the "Instituto Cervantes" of Madrid. All teachers must have at least one C1 level of English so that they can make the most of each lesson

We will teach you simple language and useful phrases that you can use during the rest of the day during your visit to Madrid, so you will be ready to take action immediately what you have learned in class

After class we'll go either to a couple of extraordinary galician tascas near the academy or other days we will get the metro straight to the Salamanca district or to the city center so we can try more traditional bars in that area.

Not to forget about the great quality of Spanish wines, and in each local we'll have a wide variety of theses excellent beverages to blend with each menu

Every day we will try a new tasca and so we'll always taste different style from a different Spanish region

You can book a single day (49€), but you would not learn too much Spanish nor would you really enjoy Madrid tapas, so our recommendation is to join us in this wonderful experience for at least five days (129€)
