Stroll through Cibeles, go shopping in Sol, go to the cinemas and theaters on Gran Vía, barhop in Huertas, or listen to music in the various nightspots in Malasaña. Madrid offers tourists an infinite amount of possible plans, and those who live in the capital know all the different ways they can spend their free time and have fun. But what about American students that are going to be in Spain’s capital for a time? What activities should they be up on? What is their life like in Madrid?
Brandon is an American student who, in Escuela Sampere’s video, shows what a normal day is like in the life of an American in Madrid: visiting the school to learn Spanish and discover the secrets of the language, walking around the city, meeting people from all over the world, having lunch or dinner at restaurants or going for drinks and tapas in the most authentic neighborhoods, and also the possibility of going out on the town any night of the week. There are countless things to do.
Here’s the video The Life of an American in Madrid. We invite you to take a look and tell us what other activities you like to do in the capital, be them educational, for fun and leisure, shopping, related to history and culture, music, sports, or shows and performances.
The video was designed and filmed by Escuela Sampere, a Spanish academy for foreigners that offers courses in five different cities: Madrid, Salamanca, Alicante, Havana, and Cuenca, Ecuador. Thousands of students have studied at their centers, and in addition to learning Spanish and sharing experiences with classmates from all around the world, have enjoyed the extracurricular and free time activities offered in each of the cities.
