Methodology and Teachers

Methodology

  In order to achieve an efficient communication, we stress on combining the learning of linguistic and grammatical contents with practice and also by interacting with Spanish-speaking people. 

 

 

For this, we use modern and updated teaching methods with audiovisual equipments, true communicative situations are dramatized and students take part in social activities (cinema, theatre, visits to museums, among any others that they may request).  In this manner, our objective is to generate within each student the need to express itself effectively and to encourage the development of his abilities regarding comprehension, as well as to the oral and written production of the language.

Personalisation: Since the day you take the first interview and level test your individual needs are identified. You will receive the appropriate material for your level and to accomplish the objectives you will set with your teacher.

Progress: We help you to progress more quickly through the feedback from teacher assessments and they will give you recommendations for guided independent study. They continuously monitor your progress and analyse your strength and weaknesses. As a result of this evaluation, you always know where you stand and what areas you still have to work on.At the end of your stay you feel confident about what you can now do in the language and you will receive a certificate defining your language competence.
