Courses

GENERAL SPANISH COURSE: we know that your needs change, so that is why we offer the possibility of changing your course each month. We offer courses of 4, 6, 8, 10, 15, and 20 hours per week. The Spanish courses allow you to choose your own schedule each week. You only need to call us and book your schedule. You will need a minimum of the 80% of the attendance to receive an “Attendance certificate”.

Types of courses

INTENSIVE SPANISH COURSE: The intensive courses are especially thought for those students who are going to stay for a short period of time in the city and want to learn as much as possible, or for those students who need a VISA. Each student can attend the Spanish lessons as many times as he/she needs, at a pace of 20 hours per week. Moreover, we offer you a linguistic tutor. The linguistic tutors are teachers who monitor your progress. When you start a Spanish course, we assign one of the most expert teachers to solve any doubt you may have. Each fortnight you can hold a meeting with your tutor and talk about your needs when learning.
