A typical day at Babylon Idiomas Madrid
Just as she does every morning, Sabine meets up at 8.30 am with her classmates in a café on the Plaza de Santa Ana and starts off the new, exciting day with a Spanish ‘desayuno’. Juan, the waiter, smiles broadly when Sabine orders in her best Spanish. The warmth and helpfulness of the Madrileneans is also noticeable in the school. The students are greeted by name after just a very short time and the door is always open should they have any questions or problems.
Sabine quickly lost her early fear of speaking in front of the class in this trusting atmosphere. She is impressed by the teaching staff, who are very lively but also very competent – typical Spaniards! Two other students are also staying with her host mother, a single, older Madrilenean: Clyde from South Africa and Nanami from Japan. The concept of never having two students with the same native language staying with the same host family pays off: the students are forced to speak Spanish. And because Sabine, Clyde and Nanami always have so much to tell each other, this is also an important part of the learning success.
