SPANISH COURSES

High performing courses

 

We provide custom Spanish learning for every specific need. Both extensive courses (two days a week) and intensive courses (five days a week) are taught in small groups (five students on average), which allows a higher interaction between students and teacher, and therefore significantly boosts the fluency of every single learner. There is also available at your disposal premium private tuition, either One-to-one or One-to-two (ideal for couples), in order to deal with your particular goals, whether academic or professional.

Whichever course you prefer, absolutely all the lessons are run by a qualified and experienced Spanish native teacher, who not only performs highly engaging classes, but also keeps an eye on the weak points of every student in order to later provide them with specific tools and exercises with which to strengthen their skills.

Regarding our educational immersion programme, we use a deeply communicative approach that will allow you to get steeped in both language and local culture from your very first lesson. Our classes are also structured under the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and observe the recommendations set by the Cervantes Institute.

So how would you like to learn?

INTENSIVE COURSES

We are talking about our fastest and most effective small group learning method. The intensive courses are a great investment to finally boost your Spanish through tailored and accurate classes that include all the required approaches and contents according to each different level of learning. This program is aimed for people willing to develop their skills very quickly by attending daily lessons from Monday to Friday in small class size. Although the Intensive courses are absolutely recommended for students from any level, it is an excellent way to start engines for those who still are beginners or absolute beginners. You can choose whatever option that best suits your needs: either the 10, 15 or 20 hours courses, or even to combine group lessons with additional private tuition in order to take a further approach on your specific goals.

That is why we have a super dynamic and varied course with engaging lessons led by the best teachers, who ensure that you get the best academic performance regarding your hours in class.

CONVERSATION 3

Have you ever started a conversation in Spanish and they answered you in English? Our conversational program is developed to give you a substantial boost in both fluency and confidence when communicating with native Spanish speakers. Whether you attend the conversation lessons independently or in addition to other intensive or extensive course, as in all our courses we guarantee that you learn in a small group in order to maintain a high interaction ratio between students and teacher. Our aim is to make you improve your fluency, your structure, your vocabulary and your pronunciation, through several engaging activities, language games, short discussions on local or international current issues and events, and more. Though the lessons are mainly focused on your speaking skills rather than grammar aspects, there is always a brief space of time open to comments on the flaws detected by the teacher during each session. Moreover, these errors are individually listed in order to make you aware of your progress throughout the classes. The course is strongly recommended for students from A2 level onwards.

All of them are fully tailored according to your specific needs. Your teacher will recommend you the most suitable topics, contents and engaging activities regarding your level and goals. Regardless of our suggestions, please feel absolutely free to lead the way and choose to what specific approach you prefer to tip the scale. Perhaps you may want to focus on boosting your grammar skills or your fluency when speaking, or maybe you need to widen your Spanish business vocabulary, prepare for the DELE official exams, or maybe you just want a balanced program.
