Spanish courses in Madrid

Madrid, the capital of Spain, is a dynamic, modern city with a population of around 4 million. Full of charm and contrasts, it is a city that appeals to all visitors, not least because of its architecture, which harmoniously combines the old and the new. Madrid also has plenty to keep you entertained at all hours of the day and night: shopping on the Gran Vía (Madrid’s main thoroughfare), Real Madrid football matches, the Rastro flea market, concerts, discos, exhibitions, tapas bars, etc. All these activities make Madrid a lively, bustling city where it’s impossible to get bored.

Enforex Madrid is located in the heart of the city, just a 5-minute walk from the university and Plaza de España. The school is surrounded by the San Bernardo and Argüelles metro stops and is served by no less than 9 bus lines. It is a 10-minute walk from Malasaña, a lively and festive district with many restaurants, bars, cafés and nightclubs. The school has recently been refurbished and is fully equipped to ensure maximum student comfort.
