Thanks to this site, I’ve personally found a number of English-teaching jobs and language exchange partners who are now my good friends.

So this website isn’t in English, sorry. But it’s so good that you must use it anyway, and plug it into google translate if need be. Several free events are posted daily that are going on in all neighborhoods of Madrid, such as photography exhibits, movie showings, music concerts and city activities. I check it out twice a day, literally.

4. Las Mesas de Vanessa – a local’s guide to Madrid’s best eateries

When it comes to finding good food, nothing beats a local’s advice. Vanessa, a foodie from Madrid, has always eaten well, whether she’s in Tokyo, Chicago or Edinburgh, thanks to the advice of local bloggers. Now she’s returning the favor by creating her own blog about her favorite restaurants in Madrid, and her choices are divine.
