    Discover Madrid and its surroundings – Hostel.

    This program includes a wide range of diverting and educative activities that will make the students get in depth into the Spanish culture. This way, they will get a complete overview of the historical facts that have made of Madrid the city we know today. It’s a full-immersion experience, in which the participants will have to use all the linguistic resources within reach, so as to communicate and understand what is happening around them. The trip is designed as completely as possible, addressing many of the expressions of the Spanish culture: history, gastronomy, painting, urban art, music, cinema…

    Moreover, our instructors, who will be accompanying the group 24/7, will also create a relaxed and participative atmosphere, where all students feel comfortable to participate, learn and enjoy. Additionally, they will always be happy to hear the teachers’ and participants’ suggestions and ready to help with any enquiry. They will also organise night activities so as to close the days in a funny way: contests, films, shows…

    Doubtlessly this is the perfect program to get in love with Madrid!

After lunch, we will start discovering the city with a touristic scavenger hunt that will reveal some of the secrets of the capital of Spain. Afterwards, we will go to the hostel, where we will have time to check in and relax a little bit. We will have dinner at a restaurant nearby and later, the instructors will run some funny activities to close the day in style!

A qualified guide will show us the graffitis and will explain who the artists are, as well as their motivations, meanings and technics.

    And to finish the day… what activity will have the instructors for us today?

    Before leaving Madrid, we cannot forget visiting the Prado Museum, where we will enjoy an entertaining didactic visit. Afterwards, we will go walking through the Barrio de las Letras up to the district of Sol, where we will have free time to look for a place to have lunch.

    With our batteries recharged, we will go shopping to Gran Vía, where we will have free time to buy some souvenirs or even have an icecream enjoying the sun. We will meet again to go all together and admire the sunset from the exotic Debod Temple.

    And then, as usual, our team of instructors will be ready after dinner for a very diverting activity: today we have a TV contest!

    Today, we will leave the capital again, this time we are off to Segovia. A town with so much history has a lot to offer, so we will spend all day here. In the morning, we will visit the awe-inspiring roman Aqueduct, the gothic Cathedral, the Alcazar –old residence of the Catholic Monarchs-, the Mint, placed in an ideal spot, and we will go for a walk to the Fuencisla Park. There, we will sit on the grass and enjoy the incredible views. Afterwards, we will walk along the river to go back to the town centre, where we will have free time to go shopping or to look for the best souvenirs to take home.

    Finally, we will go back to Madrid and, after dinner… the instructors have prepared a little surprise!
