Madrid Alcobendas students drive their own learning process in collaboration with their teacher. Our classes boost their communicative skills so they can use English as a tool to achieve their professional, academic and personal goals. Our students can also keep on learning out of class with our free programme of activities and resources.
During the academic year, students of all ages develop their speaking fluency, as well as improving their reading, listening and writing. They also revise and enhance their command of English grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. Some choose to prepare for IELTS and Cambridge exams (First, Advanced and Proficiency). Cambridge exam preparation courses include a mock exam (Term 2) and free workshops (Term 3 for First and Advanced) for more practice on the exams’ components.
Summer provides more free time for adults, teenagers and children to learn English, so why not enrol in one of our secondary general English courses (12-17 year olds), a thematic course called Story Plus (8-13 year olds), or exam courses for adults (18+). Summer courses, like our academic year courses, are based on a participative, dynamic student-centred learning programme.
