What You Can Expect
Standard Course Program
This course will help you to improve your Spanish rapidly using different skills. The course consists of 20 lessons per week in a group of maximum 6 students from all over the world that balance on the same level of Spanish. All teachers are native speakers that will guide you through the course using different teaching methods that cover interesting topics.
Classes will be in the morning from 8 a.m. to 12 a.m. or in the afternoon from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. depending on your level of Spanish. Each of these sessions includes a break of 20 minutes.
Courses begin every Monday and a minimum stay of 1 week is required. On this first day, we will take an evaluation of your Spanish through a written and oral test to best determine your level of Spanish so that you can take the most out of your course. Normally your schedule and teacher will switch every week depending on the duration of your stay and progress.
The classes will be divided amongst the levels of Spanish according to Instituto Cervantes (DELE).
