Getting around Madrid
Central Madrid is a great place to tour on foot, but like all capital cities it is quite large, so if you want to go further afield use the public transport. The best value ticket is called the “METROBUS” which gives you 10 one way trips on either the subway/underground or public buses.
Public transport in Madrid is both clean and safe, however it shuts down around midnight (apart from a few night buses) so any travel after that is either on foot or in a taxi.
You can easily get to our TEFL course Madrid Spain programme training centre by either Metro or bus.
TEFL course Madrid Spain training Centre
The Santiago Bernabeu Stadium five minutes walk from our TEFL course training centre in Madrid Spain
Your TEFL course Madrid programme is given in our purpose built, air conditioned training centre right in the heart of Madrid’s “mini-Manhattan” business district.
Our training centre is conveniently located within a 3 to 5 minute walk from the Nuevos Ministerios metro stop or number 27 bus stop. Both public transport stops are on Madrid’s prestigious Paseo de la Castellana.
Local landmarks are the Santiago Bernabeu stadium, home to Real Madrid. The Torre Picasso, the highest building in Madrid and home to many multinationals. The BBVA tower, part of Spain’s national architectural heritage. The Joan Miró convention centre and El Corte Inglés, the biggest department store in Spain. There are also plenty of shops, restaurants, bars, banks (including a Citibank and Barclays), a health club, a catholic church and Madrid’s Holiday Inn.
Our TEFL course Madrid Spain program training centre is located in central Madrid so you can easily get to the old part of the city.
In addition to the teaching rooms, the TEFL course Madrid Spain program training centre also has a study room where you can do your course work. The centre is equipped with WIFI so, if you bring your WIFI ready PC, you can work in the study room with free internet access.
