The Fundación Ortega-Marañón is a highly prestigious Spanish institution, with an outstanding reputation in the Humanities and Social Sciences. The Fundación has extensive experience in the organization of courses, conferences and seminars for teachers and students of Spanish as a second language. More than 1,600 teachers of Spanish and 4,000 students have completed courses at this institution, organized by the Fundación in its centers in Madrid and Toledo.
In Madrid students live with carefully selected Spanish families. They eat breakfast and dinner with the family and participate in their activities. The time the students spend with their Spanish families gives them the opportunity to learn and understand first-hand everything related to current events in Spain, the Spanish cuisine, the lifestyle, the colloquial use of the language and the customs of Spaniards.
In Toledo students can choose between living with a Spanish family or being accommodated in San Juan de la Penitencia Residence Hall, where classes are taught. The Residence Hall is located in the center of the city, near the Gothic Cathedral.
