BEST LEARNING OPTION: ONE-ON-ONE

Our teaching method centers on offering students individualized courses, working one on one with a professional, experienced teacher.

We have developed five levels of Spanish courses, in alliance with the Common European Framework (CEFR). These consist of two basic levels: A1 and A2. The intermediate levels: B1 and B2, and finally the advanced level: C1. These levels include a variety of learning programs and activities that include courses to prepare for your DELE. These programs are designed specifically for each individual student according to their previous knowledge, abilities and language learning needs.

Upon enrolling in our school, your teacher will give you an exam to determine your current Spanish level. This exam will include the four communication skills (reading, writing, speaking and listening) based on the Common European Framework (CEFR). Using this exam, your teacher will be able to plan your classes according to your wants and needs. At the end of your studies you will have a final evaluation to determine your progress.

Normally the classes run Monday to Friday, from 8am and 1pm or 2pm. However we are flexible to your needs.

ALTERNATIVE: TWO-ON-ONE

One alternative that we offer is to study Spanish in pairs, two students with one teacher.

In order for this option to be effective it is very important to know the level of the students according to the Common European Framework (CEFR). We have developed five levels of spanish courses. These consist of two basic levels: A1 and A2. The intermediate levels: B1 and B2, and finally the advanced level: C1. These levels include a variety of learning programs and activities that include courses to prepare for your DELE. These programs are designed specifically for each individual student according to their previous knowledge, abilities and language learning needs.

Personalized Courses

Whether you’re interested in sprucing up your Spanish ability for travel throughout Latin America or refining your intermediate Spanish for medical or missionary purposes, we have a tailored solution for you.

All our courses are one-on-one with a professor, personalized to suit each student’s unique ability and personal goals. We have worked with individuals with near zero language ability up to advanced ability and have helped them improve tremendously in their first few weeks. Our students are children, university students, backpackers, young professionals and retirees. With each individual we create a curriculum that is based on their needs and their learning preferences, to help them achieve Spanish fluency at the level they desire.

We also offer more structured preparatory courses based on the DELE examination levels (Diplomas de Español como Lengua Extranjera).  The DELE exams are given and scored by accredited institutions from the Instituto Cervantes on behalf of Spain’s Ministry of Education, and offer official accreditation of mastery of the Spanish language for citizens of countries in which Spanish is not their official language. These exams test your ability to read, write, speak, and understand Spanish and look great on a resume or C.V. for future job prospects.

On your first day, you will take a Spanish proficiency test to determine which course is best for your needs and abilities, and we will work with you to reach your objectives in a relaxed and friendly environment.
