Spanish Courses Information

Guadalajara

The main objective of most of the Spanish courses is to improve the students' communicative skills. The emphasis of classroom activities is therefore the development of the students' abilities to speak and understand spoken Spanish. For this reason, classes are conducted entirely in Spanish and students are given plenty of opportunity to practice the sort of language they are likely to need outside the classroom.

Due attention is also paid to grammar, vocabulary, reading and writing skills, and a wide variety of materials is used, including published materials from many different sources as well as materials which have been written by our own teachers.

The teaching and the course program are carefully supervised by the Director of Studies, who is also responsible for ensuring that students are placed in the appropriate level and that their progress is satisfactory. While the atmosphere in the classroom is generally relaxed and informal, students should be prepared to work hard and participate fully.

On the first day of the course, each student with any prior knowledge of Spanish is given both an oral and a written entry test so that their level of ability can be ascertained and they can be placed in the most appropriate group. The test normally takes around 40-60 minutes (depending on the student's level).

Students who study with us for a number of weeks are asked to take a test to demonstrate how much they have learned. The results of these tests are then combined with the teacher's continuous assessment report in order to determine whether or not students can move up to the next level of ability.

At the end of their course students will be given a certificate, which indicates the number of hours they have studied with us and the level of ability they have reached.

Spanish immersion courses begin every week, on Mondays, for students with previous knowledge of the language.
