The study programme of our Spanish classes 

Based on a communicative and language immersion approach, the students learn Spanish according to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). This comprehensive approach will help students develop the linguistic skills that are included in the Dictionary for ELE keywords of the Cervantes Virtual Centre.

From the beginning to the end of each session, priority is given to the use of Spanish in the classroom. It should be noted that when carrying out comparative grammar exercises or giving important instructions, we use vehicular languages. By prioritizing Spanish in the classroom, students quickly learn to communicate effectively and naturally in everyday situations.

The CEFR classifies students into 3 main categories; each category is divided in two sub-categories. The six reference levels are being widely accepted as qualification standard for language proficiency.

Our classrooms are lively and interactive spaces, equipped with all the resources needed to make students quickly reach their Spanish learning objectives through several kinds of tasks and activities.
