These courses are aimed at foreign students who want to achieve a high level of Spanish at the time that they experience Spanish culture first hand. Through our long-term courses, students will achieve the level of Spanish required by institutions for higher education (undergraduate and postgraduate education) in Spain.
Our Long-Term Spanish Language and Culture courses offer meaningful practice in grammar, vocabulary, oral and written expression, all of it by using real situations and texts and are offered at all levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for languages (A1-A2-B1-B2-C1-C2).
Apart from their regular schedule, students will be able to enrol in our preparation courses for DELE and take the official exams while in Spain.
- Intensive: Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 12:30pm (with a 30-minute break).
- Superintensive: Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 12:30pm (with a 30-minute break) and from 13:00 to 14:00. (see Tables below)
This superintensive course offers students the possibility of combining a Spanish Language and Culture intensive course (15 hours per week) with a 5-hour per week Conversation or a Spanish for Specific Purposes course.
You will be asked to complete the oral part of the online placement test on the first day of classes so that we can determine your level of Spanish more precisely.
Optional: Airport transfer: 50 EUR.
