"Our program emphasizes what students can do with language rather than simply what they know about it"

 

The best way of really getting to know a new culture is by learning its language. In our schools we offer different Spanish courses fitted to all ages and skills. Either in group lessons or private lessons you'll get the hang of Español and live an exciting new adventure. Spanish is one of the most spoken languages in the world 

 

In the teaching of Spanish, our Spanish school offers you much more fun and efficiency than anything you have tried before! Because with our unique course concepts you can learn Spanish in no time and dive into the Argentine culture from the very first day on.

 

Intensive Spanish Course

This course helps you rapidly acquire fluency in Spanish, no matter what your ambitions and level are. Group courses allow you a high degree of interactive learning. Groups are usually between 2 and 10 students. There are different levels to ensure a certain homogeneity necessary for faster learning. In case there is only one student in the group, classes take place anyway, but the amount of hours per day is reduced from 4 to 2. More information click here.

 

One-to-one Spanish Classes

One-to-one classes give you the possibility to follow a course that is entirely tailored to you. In this format, one of our teachers gives individual tutoring to a student. This is a very intensive format and especially suited to students who either want to speed up the learning process or show special needs. Individual lessons also mean flexibility, personalised content and maximum student speaking time. More information click here.

Methodology
In order to make best use of all the productive and helpful aspects of the different Spanish teaching methods currently en vogue, We have developed an approach that selectively picks the most valuable elements of each. Our objective is to take full advantage of the different pedagogical principles for Spanish language education. This way, our methodology combines the latest strategies and methods (process and communicative approaches) with the more traditional ones that have proven to be efficient over many years (formal and functional approaches).

 

Our selective methodology was developed to meet the requirements of learning Spanish in an immersion context, and is based on the specifications proposed by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. This comprehensive teaching method allows students to develop simultaneously and in a harmonic way all the foreign language learning skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing), together with strategic skills. This way, it facilitates the integration of the students’ different learning styles and abilities. Our experience shows that this approach is significantly enhancing our students’ progress in acquiring content and developing language skills.

 

Indeed, learning a language is not only about learning grammar and vocabulary, but requires students to be able to put into practise their knowledge in different real-life situations. This also motivates our choice to integrate specific cultural contents into the learning process. Communication requires knowing more than simply the structure of a language: it requires implicit knowledge of the cultural context in which interactions take place.

 

Levels
We offer an open and flexible teaching approach that takes into account the situation, aspirations and necessities of our students. Our aim is for students to use their Spanish with confidence in real situations (be it in a personal, public, professional or academic context). That is why we chose an integral and progressive acquisition of the language.

 

Our teaching plan is based on the extended European Reference Framework for learning languages. On every level, professors use a great variety of learning situations, mixing oral communication and listening comprehension using audio and video, text reading, etc. Every level has one part of its content dedicated to the social, cultural and political life in Argentina and to Argentine and Latin-American history.

 

Elementary Spanish I and II

Each level test allows the student to communicate in simple, predictable and touristic situations. Formulate and understand short phrases referent to the basic needing and greetings. Have a vocabulary and a minimal cultural comprehension, but enough to diary situations and necessary interactions.

 

Intermediary Spanish I and II

Each one of these levels allows the student handle diary and touristic situations of Elementary Spanish and crescents the Market access. It allows too improving the writing in an easy but efficient way.

 

Advanced Spanish I and II

Each one of these levels allows the student to conquer a satisfactory vocabulary and the ability of communicate with writing in an efficient way in a professional and academic range.
