Encuentro Práctico ELE Madrid

April is the time of year for the Spanish as a Foreign Language Practical Workshop organised by International House Madrid and the publishers Edinumen. This will be the 19th such event and will be held in Madrid on the 20th and 21st of April.

International House Madrid and Edinumen have been working together for nearly twenty years, opting for a training event of excellent quality with different formats of participation which allow access to eminently practical lectures, talks and workshops.  This year the event will be taking place at the Círculo de Bellas Artes and at International House Madrid school.
