-Usual schedule: Monday-Friday, 9:00am until 1:00pm (class break from 10:50am until 11:10am).
-Average of 4 students per class, being 8 the maximum.

The Program A is an intensive Spanish course designed to improve general Spanish skills and to help develop a comprehensive understanding of the Spanish language. This course is most suitable for participants who aim to devote half their day to improving their Spanish.

The course is provided in 8 levels, from beginner to Superior, and starts every Monday. The curriculum covers subjects such as general conversation, essential reading and writing, comprehension as well as improving grammar skills, pronunciation and vocabulary. Since there is no fixed time limit, students can attend this course for as long as required.

All students take a placement test in the first day of classes (20 minutes befote the first class) to determine the exact language level and the exact Group. The school will regularly monitor your study progress and help you switch classes as your level improves.

-Schedule: Mornings or afternoon.
-1-to-1 classes.

Private Spanish Course is a highly effective and intensive type of language tuition in which emphasis is put on the individual study goals and focal points of the participant. Instruction is constantly adjusted to the language skills of the individual student. A big advantage of this course type is that teachers can exclusively cater to a student’s strengths and weaknesses. Covered subjects range from all aspects of general Spanish to topics like business Spanish or specific professional topics i. e. law, medicine, marketing, etc.

We also welcome students to inform us prior to their arrival on the topic or theme they would like to cover. For example if you have a seminar or meeting you wish to prepare for we encourage you to send any information directly to your private teacher who will then adequately prepare for your arrival. Courses are normally made up of 20 or 30 lessons per week however it is also possible to arrange private tuition as a compliment to a group course of 1-2 lessons per day alternatively.

The only difference with the private program is that students booking/coming together can book the same classes, taking semi-private lessons: 2 students-1 teacher. Both students must have a similar language level and must book together.

Additional Information: Group classes versus Private classes:

Both alternatives have there own advantages. It really depends on what you as a student are looking to get out of your time at our school. Individual classes are recommended to those who require personal dedication to their learning progress or those that have more restricted schedules. Also, we recommend private classes for students who need to learn specific areas of the language (Medical, business, etc) or related to their specific fields. One-on-one classes are more expensive; however, the learning curve is steeper and fluency can be attained in a much shorter period of time.
Group classes are more economical as your teacher's time will be divided between you and the rest of your group. However, group classes also have their own advantages. You will be able to develop much stronger group skills, and have more opportunity to practice Spanish with your peers both in and out of the classroom. You decide!
