A new period of the year has arrived, with a more pleasant weather and longer days, and that means that summer is around the corner! Now it is time to decide what to do during your holidays: relaxing, active, or cultural? To a different city or to the countryside? For how long? It is always difficult to decide, but in this article, we will try to give you strong reasons to spend the summer in Madrid.
Based on a study carried out by the University of Tampere (Finland), on the perfect holidays, we can prove that one of the best options to spend your summer vacations is learning Spanish in Madrid. If you are looking forward to learning a new language while you discover a new place, Madrid is the place to be, as it offers culture, history, nature, relaxation, gastronomy and sun, a lot of sun.
Reasons to spend the summer in Madrid
- Studies show that international trips increase cognitive flexibility, a key component in creativity. In fact, the longer a person stays abroad, the greater their innovation capacities are developed. Madrid, with its cultural offer and dynamism, will be a source of energy for your brain.
- It has been proven that from the second day of holidays the general health condition is improved, as well as the energy levels. The wellness peak is reached on the eighth day of holidays. From this day, the resting effect will be the same regardless of the length of the stay. That is why our Spanish school in Madrid offers weekly Spanish learning programs. Every Monday of the year you can start a unique experience that combines Spanish classes in Madrid with cultural activities and excursions to discover Spanish culture and history. The duration of the program depends on you and the available time you have, but do not forget that just five days away from your daily routine is enough to improve your response to stress.
- According to different research teams, spending time in sunny places increases your levels of vitamin D, a molecule that reduces blood pressure and heart diseases, and which increases the cancer survival rates. A summer in Madrid means a feast of vitamin D!
- And let us not forget nature, because Madrid has an exceptional environment with mountains and pine forests, which can be reached with a simple 50-minute train ride, to enjoy peace and fresh air. It is well-known that living at higher altitudes is related to loss of weight and a healthier heart, and that hikes reduce stress, hostility, and depression. Did you know that Madrid is the highest capital city in Europe?
We are sure that summer in Madrid will provide you with the perfect holidays you are looking for. In Tilde Madrid, our Spanish school for adults specialized in Spanish cultural programs, we think so, and we will be much pleased to share this experience with you!
