MADRIDBABEL is an international language exchange group that has been organizing loads of exciting activities in Madrid since 2000. MADRIDBABEL’s aim is to bring together an international community of language learners and to create a comfortable environment for them to practice and meet new faces. The group has grown to more than 25,000 members on its different forums, which includes its popular Facebook group.
MADRIDBABEL organizes and hosts two weekly events at the centrally located restaurant, La Excéntrica. The language exchanges take place on Wednesdays from 20:30 to 0:30 and on Sundays from 19:00 to 0:00. The venue has a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere and the event is free to attend. There are event coordinators to welcome new members and connect them with others who share common interests and languages. The language exchanges normally attract around 200 attendees, who tend to be students or professionals, between the ages of 20 and 50, and from about 30 different countries. MADRIDBABEL takes pride in receiving the award for “Best Intercambio of the Year” from European Vibe Magazine.
Aside from hosting the weekly language exchange events, MADRIDBABEL coordinates lots of other events in the city and its surrounding areas. These include cultural activities, parties, wine tastings, excursions, tapas evenings, and many more. The events are published weekly on MADRIDBABEL’s Agenda and are offered at very affordable prices. There are also several service providers in Madrid that have partnered up with MADRIDBABEL and give special offers to its members.
