The Student Activities Office organizes a variety of activities to give our students the opportunity to learn about different aspects of the Spanish culture by enjoying Madrid the way locals do.

Students have participated in a variety of authentic activities:
  • Tasted tapas on a tour of Madrid's most historical taverns.
  • Visited El Rastro flea market and discovered its history and treasures.
  • Had a traditional 'cocido madrileño' for lunch (a typical winter stew with chickpeas).
  • Enjoyed classical Spanish theater at Teatro Español and other emblematic theaters.
  • Practiced their Spanish in the several 'intercambios' (language exchange) to make the language come alive with native speakers via games and conversational activities.

Each semester, we repeat some of the most popular activities and plan new ones to discover more interesting aspects of the Spanish culture - all the while having fun in Spanish.

If you are serious about having fun and getting immersed in the Spanish culture, join us for these activities.
