During your studies with us in Spain, we want to provide you not only with practical linguistic aspects like grammar and vocabulary, but also to equip you with the concepts, skills and confidence so that you feel comfortable communicating with others in Spanish-speaking contexts. That's why all of our courses use innovate techniques and employ a communicative approach to language learning, a teaching method that has proven to be effective time and time again.
All of our course syllabi have been designed by our own team of teaching professionals, who keep in mind the guidelines and requisites set forth by the Instituto Cervantes as well as the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
Our Spanish courses are divided into six main Spanish levels, which are then further divided into sublevels to ensure that each student has his or her perfect fit. The levels are as follows:
This six-level structure follows the guidelines of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and of the Instituto Cervantes, and also matches up with the United States university system. This means that you can get credits at your home university for courses you take at our Spanish schools in Spain.
On the very first day of your Spanish program, we will determine your level of Spanish with a written and oral placement test. Results are immediate, meaning that you can go straight from taking the test to learning in the classroom!
Each Spanish level has a corresponding kit of academic materials consisting of a textbook and workbook, which will be given to you once your level has been established. Textbooks and workbooks have been designed and written by our Spanish teaching professionals, who combine their years of training and experience with our proven teaching methodology to create interesting and effective learning aids.
The carefully chosen teachers throughout our Spanish schools in Spain have been specially trained and have plenty of experience in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. Not only have they been selected for their academic training, but also for their motivation, patience, enthusiasm and interpersonal skills.
Amongst our team, you'll also find experts in a wide variety of subjects, many of whom even hold Masters or Doctorates or have published works in their field of specialization (medicine, linguistics, history, tourism, marketing, literature, etc.).
