Yes, I recommend this program

Translated by Go Overseas:

I have been studying at this school for a year. I can't communicate with others from a single sentence in Spanish.
I think the teacher at this school has helped me a lot.
The content of the class is very interesting, from grammar to listening, but it is not limited to the content of the textbook. Sometimes the teacher will take us to visit the museum and taste the local snacks. The students can get along with the teacher like a friend.
The location of the school is very good, in the most central part of Madrid, so I can get to know the city very quickly when I first went to Madrid.
The school staff are also very friendly, they come from a large number of countries, and of course there are staff dedicated to Chinese students. I didn't know anything when I first arrived in Madrid, but the staff taught me how to do a student ID card, what materials should be prepared, and many of them were printed in advance for me.
I graduated from a Chinese university, but I am very interested in Spanish culture, so I came to Spain to study. This year I completed my language course at the NLC Language School and I am preparing to apply for a graduate degree. The staff also gave me a lot of good advice. I think if I have a chance, I will return to this school to study.

我在这个学校学习了一年,我从一句西班牙语都不会到现在可以流畅的和别人沟通。
我觉得这个学校的老师帮助了我很多。
课堂内容很有趣,从语法到听力所有方面都涉及到了,但是又不仅限于课本上的内容,老师有的时候还会带我们去参观博物馆、品尝当地的小吃,学生可以像朋友一样的和老师相处。
学校的地理位置非常的好,在马德里最市中心的地方,所以在我刚到马德里上学的时候我可以很快速的熟悉这个城市。
学校的工作人员也非常的友善,他们来自非常多的国家,当然也有专门负责中国学生的工作人员。我刚到马德里的时候什么都不知道,但是工作人员教我怎么办学生身份证、应该准备什么材料,并且很多表格他们都提前打印好了给我。
我在中国大学毕业,但是非常感兴趣西班牙的文化,所以来到西班牙学习。今年我完成了我在NLC语言学校的语言课程学习准备申请研究生了。工作人员也给了我很多很好的建议。我想如果以后有机会我还会回到这个学校学习。

I highly recommend this program Full Immersion Spanish in Madrid, I'm really lucky because I was lucky to be the first Kabyle in this wonderful school that changed my life, it was my first time to traveling to another country and living away from my family but the staff at NLCollege school were like a family to me especially teachers Javier and Fernando and student counselors who work for the school for the sanctification of the student
the school is located in the most known area in Madrid at Puerta del Sol Square where everything is needed to enjoy Spanish and Madridista life, I learned Spanish very quickly and I will not forget never support the school.
THANK YOU NATIVE LANGUAGE COLLEGE!

je vous recommande fortement ce programme Full Immersion Spanish in Madrid, je suis vraiment chanceux parce-que j'ai eu la chance d’être le premier Kabyle dans cette école merveilleuse qui m'a changé la vie, c’était ma premiere fois de voyager vers un autre pays et vivre loin de ma famille mais le staff à l’école NLCollege étaient comme une famille pour moi surtout les profs Javier et Fernando et les conseillers étudiants qui travaillent pour l’école pour la sanctification de l’étudiant
l’école est située dans la zone la plus connue à Madrid à la Place Puerta del Sol ou se trouve tout ce qui est nécessaire pour profiter de la vie espagnole et Madridista, j'ai appris l'espagnol très rapidement et je n'oublierai jamais le soutien de l’école.
MERCI NATIVE LANGUAGE COLLEGE !

I´m loving studying at NLC. The teachers are very dedicated for you to really learn. I came for a 3 months program and decided to extend it because I liked the results I´m having with the language. Besides there are the extracurricular classes in the afternoon. there are conversation classes, rollplay and culture which helps to know more about the country and not only the Spanish language.
Everyone is respectful and friendly so it's a good environment to learn. The school is very central which makes it easy to move around and do tourist things. NLC collaborates for students to interact
Classes are very dynamic and sometimes we go to visit museums and learn outdoors in parks, which makes it even more fun to learn. I definitely recommend!!

What would you improve about this program?
the school structure , cause is in an old city building

It was great studying at NL College! The school has an excellent location and structure. Also, I would like to recommend due to the quality of the classes, I was surprise how much I could improve during 3 months there! It was lovely to meet the teacher Fernando and all the team (the staff always help you when you need something, even if it is not related to the classes).
The method is based on dynamic activities which I really enjoyed...I am kind of distracted student, who cannot pay attention for a long time if the class is boring! One highlight I would say that is the class in the park, usually Fridays. Madrid is a vibrant city with the best weather in Europe (it never rains), so it was a way to learn without feel, we could literally live the content. I strongly recommend studying there.

I definitily recommend the school. I like the way they teach the language and that´s way I´ve learned a lot in NLCollege. They have lovely staffs who are always willing to help you. The location is also great, it is close to everything (pubs, restaurants, trains, subways, supermarkets, etc). The City has a good atmosphere and people are nice and helpful.
I really enjoyed the time I was there and I am already missing Madrid.

Nicole Maiterth

Job Title
Student Advisor & Marketing Representative

Originally from Oregon, Nicole has spent seven years living, studying, and working in Norway and recently moved to Spain to experience a new country. She now enjoys helping students come to Spain and embark on cultural and language experiences that they will cherish for the rest of their lives.

What is your favorite travel memory?

One of my favorite travel memories was my first trip to Spain. I had heard so many stories from my friends about how nice the city of Barcelona was and how nice the beaches are here. My first trip was to Madrid and the Basque country so I did not know what to expect. I ended up being blown away!

Madrid offers everything a big capital city offers without being as overwhelming and crowded as New York or London. The landscapes and cultural traditions of the Basque were so beautiful, and I was even lucky enough to participate in the local festival wearing the regional dress. These first memories of Spain are something I will carry with me forever, and I enjoy making it possible for other people to experience the same.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

I’ve had many jobs where I just followed a routine where the daily tasks were basically the same. This company is about taking initiative, being creative, and finding innovative solutions to help our students and develop the school. I also love that, through my work, I am able to help young people from all parts of the world begin the same amazing journey abroad that I have been so lucky to have.

What is the best story you've heard from a return student?

We have had multiple students returning to Spain from their home countries either to re-enroll and learn even more Spanish, or to visit their host families and friends they met while living here. Even in one instance, there was a student that had passed the DELE exam after taking our DELE preparation course. This certification enabled that student to qualify for many jobs in Spain. A year after he had passed his exam, this student was able to move back to Spain after receiving a job offer just outside of Madrid.

It’s always very rewarding to see students inspired by learning a new language and how it can lead to many doors opening for them in their future.

If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?

This is a hard question because I would love to enroll in all of our programs. However, I think that I would combine my general Spanish course with an au pair placement. This combination would allow me to learn at school during the day, receive extra immersion with the host family and kids, along with free accommodation and a nice allowance. This has been a popular program for our school for those reasons, but also because of the flexibility of the program compared to other au pair placement programs in Spain. Our students are able to choose what kind of au pair they would like to be and interview with several different families.

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

I think that the programs we offer are especially unique because the students can tailor-make their own language and cultural experience in Spain. Not only do we offer a variety of Spanish courses, but the opportunity to combine those Spanish courses with host family placement, au pairing, service learning, or to take part in various cultural activities in the capital of the country. These aspects give our students the opportunity to learn in an incredibly immersive way and to make connections with natives that they would otherwise not be able to make.

Our marketing and student advisor team is comprised of a wide mix of internationals that can provide information and support in eight different languages, which can be very reassuring for young students who are maybe leaving their home countries for the first time. I’m always really proud of the members of my team helping and providing advice for people from their home country. In addition, our students come from all over the world to Madrid to learn Spanish so they will have the opportunity not just to make Spanish friends, but international friends as well.

All of our programs are designed for students who want to learn Spanish in an immersive environment enriched with cultural activities. Aside from offering general Spanish courses, we offer language exam preparation programs for students wanting to use Spanish in their educational and professional careers. Overall, I believe that our school provides a platform for anyone wanting to come to Spain to learn the language and the Spanish way of life through an immersive environment.

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

I think the success of any company, school, or enterprise is reflected in the level of satisfaction of their customers and staff. Specifically for our school, we measure our success by how happy our students and staff are, how much they learn, and how much they benefit from their experience in Spain. Our school always provides extra support to help enforce those dimensions and make sure that all of our students and staff are happy.
