Interactive, Communicative TeachingSuccessfully implementing the interactive method totally depends on the personal attention your teacher is able to give you. Therefore, our groups are small and all courses are (super) intensive. The make-up of the group is determined according to the students’ abilities; the first day of the course begins with an oral and written placement test.
LevelsThere are four levels (with consequent sublevels), in accordance with the curriculum of the Instituto Cervantes and their equivalents in the Council of Europe. Each level takes between five and eight weeks to complete in full.
The beginning level is for those without any knowledge of the Spanish Language. Upon completion, the student will be able to formulate and understand short sentences relating to basic necessities and forms of politeness.
This course will bring the student to a higher level of comprehension and expression. The students will be able to express themselves, perhaps sometimes with a little difficulty, but usually spontaneously and independently, in everyday situations. This level includes a revision of basic structures and an extension of grammatical structures (past tenses).
The student will have advanced communication ability, even in complicated situations. The student will work extensively on past tenses and will be introduced to the subjunctive.
