Locations in Spain

Most host family placements tend to be in the larger cities, such as Madrid, where 80% of our host families live, as well as other cities such as Seville, Barcelona, Malaga, Santander and more.

Applicants may request specific locations; however, we cannot guarantee placements in those locations, but we will try our best to accommodate their preferences.


Madrid is the capital of Spain and 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.

Madrid is a cosmopolitan city with an open character and a meeting point for different nationalities and cultures. Students from around the world find Madrid an exceptional place to learn 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 (shopping, dining out, clubbing, etc) help those who visit Madrid to improve their linguistic skills and increase their knowledge of the Spanish culture.

There is also plenty of things to be done and seen in the surrounding areas, such as day trips to Segovia, Toledo, Aranjuez, El Escorial, etc..
