King's College Soto de Vinuelas in Madrid reviews

Irena P.

We, admittedly, did not plan to study abroad from the very beginning, but my wife was transferred to work in Madrid, and a year later it became clear that everything was serious and he was there - that was the question of the move. We have a son of 8 years old, just went to school, so we had to translate a little in a hurry and without additional intensive training - but everything went well, we learned and live here for the third year already (the school of King's College Madrid Soto de Vinuelas ).

Of course, the main difficulties were language - Spanish since childhood, no one was engaged, I repeat, the move was not planned. But thank God that the child went to the primary classes because of age - later, I think, it would be much more difficult to switch. The school organizes additional courses of Spanish and English - we regularly attend all classes (took a full, maximum intensive course), and the school program itself is not too complicated (as for all young students, as in Russia), so we have time to learn , and the language of learning. I am glad that we picked up the school correctly: the Smapse consultants, as we found out our confused situation, immediately advised us to choose international schools: there are many foreigners, therefore the administration and teachers always take into account that children can not ideally know foreign languages. Basically, teaching, by the way, is conducted in English, which is a bit simpler (we had a kindergarten with English lessons for kids - songs of all sorts, rhymes, so that even the most basic knowledge is yes).

It's much easier now: new friends have appeared, and the program copes as a whole, and there are no such large gaps in the language (only certain terms cause difficulties, but the teachers explain everything in detail). And the rest of the school is above all that we saw and chose in Petersburg - a large and developed city, the second Russian capital, but there are not such conditions. We are satisfied and have calmed down a bit, for which many thanks to the company Smaps: we are still assisted in certain issues (documents, possible transfer to other classes or to another program, etc.). When you feel professional support in such an important matter, everything goes on easier, psychologically as well.

Hello Maria! The school operates a classic British system: a kindergarten from 5 to 7 years (grade 1-2); Primary school (grades 3-6) from 7 to 10 years; Secondary school (grades 7-11) from 11 to 15 years; And the senior school (12-13 class) - from 16 to 18 years. As part of the secondary school, students learn: English, Spanish, biology, chemistry, physics, literature, social studies, French, Spanish or German can also be chosen for study. In the high school, students must learn English, mathematics, science and Spanish + subjects of choice. As a rule, within the framework of the senior school and preparation for the university, non-Hispanic students study an average of 9 subjects.
Alexey and Inna Labo

Our daughter has been studying Spanish since childhood, and with increasing interest in Spain - we decided to give her a chance to get an education and work in this country, the blessing for this is financial opportunity. Immediately realized that the senior classes must be completed in the Spanish school (here the course for high school students is calledBachillerato ), because the procedure for translating and recognizing a Russian passport is long and complicated, and not always successful.

After Internet searches decided to contact Smaps: there are so many subtleties in foreign education that we decided not to take risks and take advantage of the help of the pros. This was the right step. First we specified the age and level of education of the child, how well he knows English and Spanish, what we want to achieve in the end and what opportunities we have - and only after that we began to select a school and a program. In our opinion, the most professional, and at the same time all enrollment is free of charge - the company cooperates with schools directly, which, you see, is very convenient and profitable.The Kings College of Soto de Vinyuelos chose according to positive feedback, official statistics, location, looked photos of buildings, classrooms and hostels. My daughter has been studying for several months and is absolutely happy: the school is cozy, many children from different countries of the world (her best friend from Brazil!), Spanish and English are actively studied. There was practically no language barrier, but here learning of language helped earlier. On weekends they go to Madrid - they always send photos, the school organizes excursions. We are confident that she will receive a certificate with good points and will continue to successfully study in Spain. Thanks Smapse for the help!
