Paraninfo is a Spanish language school for foreigners centrally located in Princesa Street, in the popular and emblematic university neighborhood of Argüelles, in the heart of Madrid. Its communication and travel links are excellent.
Since 1973 students from all over the world have come to our school to study Spanish. Paraninfo enjoys well-deserved prestige and through many successful years has gained a lot experience making us an important reference in the teaching and spreading of Spanish.
The course is designed for those who want to immerse completely into the language to progress efficiently during the limited period of time.
We offer classes at all levels, from A1 to C2 in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference for Language (CEFR). These small classes focus on communication in practical situations, for example understanding your flatmates or work colleagues, or dealing with people at the supermarket.
Living and studying in Madrid will enable you to master Spanish in record time, as you use the language both inside and outside the classroom every day. You’ll be surprised how quickly your Spanish improves as you begin to feel at home here in Madrid.
Recommended for students and professionals who are too busy studying and working to attend classes every day. Ideal for people who live in Madrid but are short of time, or anybody having trouble communicating with flatmates/workmates, or even people worried about not being able to explain things properly to the doctor.
You will soon find yourself able to speak (in great Spanish) about anything you like and will quickly become a part of Spanish society.
This way you can enjoy the advantages of both types of classes. You can choose from any of the group classes on offer (20/10/8/6/4 hours a week) and combine this with however many hours of individual classes you would like.
The group classes focus on communication, both oral and written, with you interacting in small groups of up to 10 students. Then the individual classes cater more to your specific needs and complement the group classes.
For students and professionals wanting to master Spanish quickly or who are unable to attend a regular timetabled course. Individual classes can be taken alongside group classes.
We plan the classes according to your schedule and specific needs. The pace of the course is set by you, and these courses are designed to be as flexible as possible.
Aimed at people aged 50 and over who would like to learn Spanish. In small groups of no more than 6 students so that the teacher can pay more attention to each individual student. We offer classes at all levels, from beginner to advanced. The class progresses at a pace comfortable for you.
So, whether you’re just trying to unwind a little during the holidays, wanting to brush up a bit, or aiming to seriously improve your Spanish, we have the right course for you. After classes you are also invited to take part in the extracurricular activities that we offer to all our students.
This course concentrates on the aspects of language-learning that are most interesting for children: songs, parties, games, animals, food, school, the home, friends and family. The content of the course is adapted to suit the abilities (communicative, reading and writing) and ages of the students. Thanks to the wide variety of fun and creative activities, all designed to be both exciting and educational, students will learn without even realising it.
In addition to this, there are lots of arts and crafts activities to keep young hands and minds busy: colouring in, cut and stick, paper-folding etc… We also aim to encourage certain social values, like respect for others and the environment.
Alongside the classes we also offer extracurricular activities, from Monday to Thursday: games and songs workshops, a trip on the cable car, a visit to the Wax Museum, etc…
This course is designed for non-native speakers of Spanish that work as Spanish teachers in their home countries and want to perfect or build upon any training already received, whilst at the same time refreshing or improving their Spanish skills.

The exams take place in May, August and November. To do this course, students have to show that they have the required level for which they would like to take the exam.
The literacy course is aimed at people with difficulties in learning Spanish because it differs so much from their native language – students whose native languages have alphabets that are completely different to ours: Cyrillic, Arabic, Greek, Indian or Oriental, for example.
A normal Spanish course wouldn’t be suitable for such students, which is why we offer a more specialized course, designed specifically to teach these students to read and write properly in Spanish. Once they have completed this course, students are then able to start the A1 or Beginner classes.

Mass Media has transformed our society. We consider it not only important, but necessary, because without it it would be a lot more difficult to communicate, to find information, or even to entertain ourselves. What do we know about the different types of mass media? How long have they been around? Are they a tool for manipulation? Taking part in these workshops will make you think a little more critically about today´s society.
Participation is a key part of these workshops, and students are invited to do projects related to the Internet, television, radio and the press.
Folklore refers to the set of beliefs and traditions that make up a nation´s shared history and identity and give each nation its own distinctive character…
It develops slowly over time, passed on from one generation to the next, and is expressed in the people´s culture, in festivals, dances, music…
We take pride in our commitment to culture and traditions and hope our students feel the same. The main aim of the folklore workshops is to preserve and share our traditions and customs.
As members of today´s society we place a certain value on goods and services, giving the utmost importance to money and the economy.
At Paraninfo we understand that both are important and have an effect on our lives, which is why we have decided to offer Economics Workshops, in the hope that we will all think a little more about the value we place on everything.
For as long as people have existed, we have always felt the irrepressible need to express ourselves and interpret the world around us.
We have done this using the means available to us, namely physical materials and human language. Over the course of history, painting and architecture have taken on different forms depending on the resources and techniques around at the time. In the Art Workshops you will learn about some of the different artists and styles that have come and gone throughout history.
The Literature Workshops are designed for people who want to learn the techniques for writing, poetry, prose and plays and, in doing so, better understand why literature is one of the most important forms of expression for a nation.
They are also aimed at people who want to study literature, as we try to get you used to writing and help you find your own voice. The only way to learn to write is by writing, so these workshops will provide you with the means and techniques necessary to be able to write on your own.
Designed for students with an intermediate or high level of Spanish that want to perfect their written and oral expressions in practical and participative classes. The objective of the course is the reading, analyses and creation of poetic texts.
The aim of the workshop theater and creativity for foreigners is to realize one’s own body and know its expressive resources (space, gestures, voice, etc..) from an intercultural perspective.
Renting a room in an apartment that belongs to our school has various advantages.
Firstly the student can relax knowing that he or she can deal directly with us for all his or her needs and for whatever situations may arise.
Even more, Paraninfo Academy has gone all the way to satisfy as far as possible all the needs of the students that decide to stay in one of the rooms. The apartment has all modern appliances and fittings, a fully equipped kitchen, high speed internet as well as carefully selected location, only 5 minutes walking from the school. Host family Staying with a Spanish family is the best way to ensure total immersion in the Spanish language. It is the perfect complement to your language classes because the families will not only provide you with comfortable accommodation, they will also introduce you to their culture and way of life. Make the most of your stay in Spain by participating in the daily life of the family and seeing them every day; but at the same time you will have your independence, being able to enter and leave the house with your own key. University Residence Although during the school year the university residences are reserved for Spanish students, during summer they are open to international students seeking comfort. We therefore offer this option, combining a suitable study environment with high-quality facilities. The residence is a 30-minute walk from Paraninfo.
