Spanish as a foreign language

Level test

First we do a level test, which is free and without compromise. This allows to determine the group in which the student would make the most progress. This test consists in a personal interview, a grammar and vocabulary questionnary, and a writing.

MCER

The Common Eurpean Framework of Reference for Languages recommends the following hours in order to pass the different levels:

MCER

However, the amount of hours may vary depending on factors such as the candidate’s attitude towards studying, facilities, number of students per class... Therefore, our students usually achieve these levels quite sooner.

Duration

Spanish courses are designed for the student to be in a situation of linguistic immersion. Thus, to make the most of the course, we recommend that students take no less than 6 hours a week in the case of long stays and 15 hours a week in the case of short stays. In addition, the groups will be of a maximun of 10 students.

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 situations in which to use what has been learned in the class. This teaching method enables the student for a 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. If necessary and in agreement with the student, the teacher can recommend buying a book.

Course hours

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