Level test

Firstly, in order to determine the group in which the student would improve the fastest, we do a free, no-commitment level test. This consists of a personal interview, a grammar and vocabulary test, and a writing. Then, according to the results and the student’s objectives and availability, we recommend the most appropriate groups.

 

 

Duration

Our usual courses include two hours of class a week but, if the teacher deems it necessary for the student’s objectives, more hours could be recommended either in a group or 1to1 in order to meet the initial objectives. Groups have a maximum of 5 people. This is the only way for all students to take part and interact, therefore making the most of the lessons.

 

 

Material

All required materials are handed to the students either by e-mail before the class or at the beginning of each lesson. The student is at the centre of the learning process and immersed in real-life situations so that they can apply what they have learned in class. This teaching method prepares the student for real communication —both oral and written— with other speakers of the language. For this purpose, texts, listenings, and authentic materials are used, as well as activities that imitate reality.

 

 

Exams

We know that exams are important, but we do not want classes to exclusively focus on their preparation. We believe that actually learning the language is far more important in order to eventually succeed at exams. For this reason, and in order to complete the course, we offer two weekly hours for exam preparation, when prior notice is given to the teacher. These additional hours are completely free.

 

 

Course hours

There are groups of all levels from A1 to C2 both in the morning and in the afternoon. For more information, contact us.

Exams that we prepare you for

EXAMS THAT WE PREPARE YOU FOR WITHOUT BEING AN OFFICIAL EXAMINATION CENTRE

Escuela Oficial de Idiomas (EOI)

The exams of the EOI are demanding and require thorough preparation. They consist of four parts: reading comprehension, listening, writing and speaking. Levels A2 to C1 are tested. You can register either as an independent candidate (in June only) or as a student of the EOI (in June or September).

These are the only exams that provide points for primary and high school teachers looking to work in the public system.

We prepare both independent candidates and EOI students.

 

 

CELGA exams

In order to have access to numerous jobs, scholarships or employment as a civil servant, you must certify your level of Galician with a CELGA exam, namely CELGA 4 (equivalent to C1). CELGA is the certifying system for the Galician language according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

These certificates are obtained through an exam that is organised by the Secretaría Xeral de Política Lingüística. CELGA can also be granted due to previous studies (CELGA 4 is granted after completion of the last year of high school in Galicia).
