• Accredited Center

    Our Spanish school is accredited by the Instituto Cervantes. This guarantees that our Spanish courses achieve the highest standards of quality: we use the best teaching methods and most current materials plus our teachers are specialists in teaching Spanish. We also organise a variety of interesting and varied cultural activities.

  • A welcoming school

    Our school is small, this makes it easy to feel comfortable, meet people and make friends. We understand it can sometimes be hard traveling to another country so far from your friends and family, so we do everything possible to help you feel settled. In our school, students, teachers and staff form one big family and between us we create an environment to not only learn, but where learning is fun.

  • International environment

    At Cronopios Idiomas we have an international environment where there is no predominant nationality. We have students from all over the world and we work to ensure it will always be this way. We believe it is important at our school that the students meet people from different countries and therefore receive the most enriching experience possible.

  • Specialised and motivated teachers

    All our teachers are specialists in teaching languages; they each have had specific training and gained years of teaching experience. Our methods of teaching have been certified by the Instituto Cervantes after thorough assessments. However, the most important point is our motivation! The teachers who set up Cronopios Idiomas did so with all the enthusiasm in the world. Our dream is to be as happy as possible doing the very best in our jobs.

  • Learning by doing

    We use the most advanced methods of teaching Spanish: using a task-based approach. The aim is that students learn through actual use of the Spanish language by doing fun activities, communicating and relating to real life situations. Grammar, of course, is fundamental and we teach it, but we believe that class participation is the best way to learn it and use it.

  • Small groups

    Our courses are organised in small groups with a maximum of 8 students per class. The students work in teams performing practical and communicative tasks. In this way, the students learn in both a fun and an effective manner at the same time.

  • Actual hours per week

    Many schools speak of “lessons” yet fail to mention the number of actual hours their courses are per week. Why might they do this? In reality, this is a commercial strategy; one lesson = 45 or 50 minutes. We do not use the term “lessons”, we use actual hours: one hour = 60 minutes. Our main courses have a name that relates to the quantity of hours each week:

    • Intensive 15 = 15 full hours per week
    • Intensive 20 = 20 full hours per week
    • Intensive 22 = 22 full hours per week
  • The best value

    We are a school managed by a team of teachers, so quality teaching is our priority. Our methods of teaching and our educational materials are accredited by the Instituto Cervantes, however, the prices of our courses and enrolment fees are lower than the majority of other schools. We offer both quality teaching, and affordable courses. So how is this possible? Our main goal is not money, but to acquire a fair wage and be happy doing what we love; teaching and managing our own school in the best way.

  • Personalised attention

    It is very important for us that our students are happy and feel comfortable in our school. Pedro, who is responsible for attending to the needs of our students, has fantastic people skills and handles with great care everything a student may require regarding advice and assistance for their time with us. Pedro can help you book the most adequate course, buy tickets, find cultural activities and a multitude of other things besides.

  • Cooperative business

    Our school is a co-operative establishment, this means that the teachers and admin staff are the owners and are involved in 100% of everything we do. There are seven partners who collaborate as a team daily to constantly improve how we work every day; we asses our work and pay the closest attention to detail so that there is always a great atmosphere in the school.

  • Social Commitment

    We believe in an economy that serves its’ people and that’s why we work with small local suppliers and participate in social economy projects such as Coop57 and the Social Market of Madrid. Also we try to provide, as far as we feasibly can, reduced price or free courses for students with lesser resources:

    • Long-term students who need continuous learning but do not have an income.
    • Students that collaborate with us in exchange for group lessons.
    • Students without resources that come to us through social organisations and NGOs which are dedicated to teaching Spanish through the efforts of volunteers.

    Another thing that sets us apart: Host families receive 100% of the money paid to them by the student for the duration of their stay in their home. We charge only 30 Euros per student for the management cost, but we do not receive any additional commission from the host families.
