Itinerary

Depending on your level of Spanish and your goals for your time studying with us, there are a number of courses which you can get involved with. All our classes emphasize speaking abilities, but we consider the Spanish language as a whole; therefore, our methodology takes into account its different components: grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, cultural understanding and pragmatic use. You will be placed in classes according to your Spanish proficiency level, which is determined by a written test sent by email and an oral evaluation exam before starting your course. Your level will be confirmed by your instructor based on your performance during the class. As a Beginner student, you will study basic sentence structures, learn everyday vocabulary and develop the ability to clearly communicate basic ideas in Spanish. As an Intermediate student, your course will emphasize the cultural aspects of the language and its real usage. The course’s emphasis is on culturally authentic reading and writing, along with continued development of listening/speaking competencies. As an Advanced student, your course includes cultural, social and historical aspects of different Hispanic speaking countries as a way to explain the relationship between language, history, and culture. The objective of this course is the proficiency and fluency in the Spanish language. Furthermore, an emphasis is placed on the comprehension and use of the language in unrehearsed situations in culturally appropriate ways. Specialized: We also offer medical Spanish for nurses or doctors, business Spanish, Spanish for lawyers and special courses for Spanish teachers. If you would like a more detailed breakdown of the course structure related to your level, please do get in touch with one of our advisors and we can provide you with some more details.
