SPEAK TO ME is a medium-sized, independent language school in the centre of Madrid. It was originally founded under the name of Madrazo Language School in 1997 by a group of English and Spanish teachers with considerable teaching experience.
The school holds a reputation for offering a wide range of language courses along with experienced teachers and excellent customer service. Our courses and teaching methods are designed to provide effective training for students who need languages for work, study or travel.
We understand that each person has different needs and objectives. From the moment you begin studying with us, we will give you personalised attention in order to help you obtain your goals.
SPEAK TO ME’s mission is to provide professional and high quality teaching, especially in the area of business. As a result, we have established long lasting and sound relationships with our clients based on trust and teaching satisfaction.
Our staff is made up of a permanent team of qualified teachers, many of whom have been working with us since the school was established. We prefer to use teachers we know and trust when working with a new client, in the hope of satisfying and even improving our client’s expectations.

All our teaching staff are regularly evaluated both by SPEAK TO ME and our students. This includes regular class observations and students are also given the opportunity to provide feedback to express their personal opinion of the classes they receive.
We use well-tried and recognised material combined with modern and innovative learning methods, which make for classes that are both interesting and practical. We provide our students with regular progress updates so that they can track their personal development in language learning.
