On Saturday 10th October, the first Madrid Student Welcome Day will take place at the Ayuntamiento de Madrid’s Galería de Cristal (Cibeles).  This is a festive and recreational event intended specifically for foreign students who have recently arrived in Madrid.ç

The aim is to give students a warm welcome to the city of Madrid and an opportunity for them to get to know what cultural and leisure activities are available.  There will be a range of activities – concerts, raffles and free gifts as well as free food.

The event is subsidised by the Ayuntamiento of Madrid and the Comunidad de Madrid as well as by businesses and organisations who, like ourselves, want to take part in this interesting initiative.

The Instituto Cervantes will have a stand and will provide various activities throughout the day.  They will have a twenty minute spot on the main stage for dynamic group exercises for students of Spanish as a Foreign Language.  Immediately following this there will be raffle of four tickets for the AVE Global for people who have previously taken part in activities at the stand.
