Courses designed for students who want to learn Spanish or improve their knowledge of the language in a short period of time.
These courses are designed for students who want to learn Spanish or improve their knowledge of the language in a short period of time.
Intensive courses have the following characteristics:
- A maximum of 8 students per class.
- Classes cover pronunciation, grammar, usage, conversation, reading comprehension, textual analysis, and composition.
- Students have the same grammar teacher for the whole course. In conversation classes, teachers are rotated every 3 days so that the student becomes used to different tones of voice.
- All students are required to do homework consisting of grammar exercises and reading assignments to be discussed in class.
- There are 6 levels: Beginner I and II, Intermediate I and II, and Advanced I and II (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2).
- Students have access to a program of activities and excursions, meals with a teacher in a private room of a local restaurant, and housing (with a Spanish family or in a studio or shared flats).
- 09:00 - 11:00 Grammatical block (correction of exercises, development of grammatical subject and practice of grammatical subject)
- 11:00 - 11:30 Break
- 11:30 - 13:00 Communication
Most of the schools offer 45 minutes per lesson. That means that the actual duration of the class is 3 hours a day. With our schedule, students have 3 and a half hours a day. That means that in a week they get 2 and a half more hours, almost one more day of class.
