Study Abroad Spain: Living in Madrid
Here are some great insights from one of our current International Business students:
When living in Madrid it would be a plus if you spend a few weeks with a host family before finding your own place. This will force you to practice your Spanish while you’re at home and have traditional Spanish meals prepared right in your kitchen. It will also give you some time to learn which areas you should be looking into for your apartment instead of going for it blindfold.
Madrid is a big city which has so much to offer that it might seem impossible to do all the must-see sites and some exploring of your own without getting lost. This is where Madrid’s great transportation system comes in. I cannot stress how great the system truly is! It doesn’t even matter where you go, chances are there is a metro, bus, or train headed that way. Buses, trains, and metro cars are clean, safe and punctual. Even if you do not use public transportation back home it will take you very little time to get accustomed to this one. They are so practical, opening from 6am to 1:30am, which is a step up from the Barcelona metro which tends to end at midnight.
Although over 6 million tourists visit Madrid every year, the Madrileños are very keen on their language. This is why you should definitely plan on taking a few Spanish classes or brushing up on the ones you took in high school. Spanish is a fairly easy language to grasp, especially if you are out and about with friends, going to restaurants, the movies, bars and other places. Wherever you might be from, Madrid will be somewhat of a culture shock, but this is part of what makes this city such a great place – its unapologetically Spanish with deep cultural roots.

Today we observe Veteran’s Day in the United States of America. A nation formed “Under God, with liberty and justice for all.” The origin of this observation dates back to November 11, 1918. According to the Office of Public Affairs of the US Department of Veterans Affairs:
“In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day with the following words: ‘To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations….’” http://www.va.gov/opa/vetsday/vetdayhistory.asp
“Armistice Day” was later renamed in June 1, 1954 to “Veterans Day” in order to honor American Veterans of all wars.
Schiller International University would like to extend its gratitude and thankfulness to every US Veteran that has served to defend this great nation. To those of you who had the privilege to have worn the unmistakable uniform representing patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good, we say “Thank You”. We would also like to express our gratitude to all service members currently serving this great nation. Your bravery inspires us all.
From our Tampa Bay Campus Director Fabian Fernandez
