We get this question from students like you many times. Answer is: it depends. If you know a little Spanish is good, as taking an intensive Spanish course we’ll make you feel comfortable and improvements will easily show.
Also, we highly recommend for short stays to include family accommodation, that way you make sure to practice your newly gained skills in a relaxed, natural atmosphere. Short stay students who choose this formula: intensive Spanish course (4hrs/day)+home accommodation always tell us they are impressed how their Spanish boosted in so a short time period.
For new beginners in Spanish, a two week course might be a little too short, so it’s better to look for a longer stay, or making a Spanish introduction course before coming to Madrid, that way you’ll better profit your stay in Madrid.
So if you’re thinking on polishing/learning Spanish this summer, don’t wait any longer. Contact us now, we’ll provide the course and family accommodation. firstname.lastname@example.org
