Students of Tandem Madrid are offered a professional lodging service with different alternatives available so that we can satisfy the personal interests and needs of every student. Your accommodation will be carefully selected as we strive to provide every student with the same quality level.
TANDEM Madrid also offers the option of lodging with a Host Family within the Road2Spain program. With this option you will be accommodated in a single room (breakfast included). TANDEM believes this is the ideal option for you as it will allow you to focus all your attention on the TEFL course and immerse completely into the Spanish language and culture.
The following factors are taken into consideration when TANDEM carefully selects the families:
Students can easily get to the home from the school. The maximum distance between the school and the family homes is of 30 minutes by foot or by public transport.
These flats are comfortable, cozy and clean and have a bedroom with everything you may need just for you.
The host families are usually interested in interacting with their student guests and enjoying the time they stay.
Note: not every family is necessarily made up of a mother, father and children. The concept of family we offer includes many types of accommodation which may be: a couple with no children, or single mothers or women who live alone, etc.
Every student that comes from outside the European Union needs to apply for a Student Visa or a Tourist Visa.
As TANDEM Madrid is an Instituto Cervantes accredited centre, once you enrol a Spanish course with us, you will be provided with an authorisation letter which you need in order to obtain the Student Visa, with which you will be able to stay in Spain for a year.
This letter and other papers will be sent via email and normal postal services. You can also hire an express system at the extra cost of 60€ if you want a fastest and more secure service for the processing of your documents.
