"My experience in Spain has been the best experience of my life. I´m from Paris and I'm used to living in the capital but Madrid is different. It is a lively city where it is pleasant to live, the people smile a lot and you´re never bored! It is easy to meet up alot. Also, the buses and trains make it easy to leave the capital and visit Spain. Toledo, for example, is beautiful!
IED and Erasmus allowed me to live this experience in my life I will never forget. I just got back to France but I'm already planning to go back to Spain. I have met people who left their mark on me for life and have lived an unforgettable experience. Also, IED Madrid is an excellent school where I felt good, was well received, learned a lot and grew thanks to them."
