What our students say
The Methodology course for Spanish teachers seemed very interesting to me and has met my expectations. The truth is that the content of the course was very interesting, and I realized that it was necessary to learn in all subjects: grammar, auditory and written expression, conversations, culture, etc … This course was interesting also for the explanations given on the role of the teacher in class, and the different methods he can use to teach his classes. In addition, the summary came in handy to help memorize what I learned from the course. As for the teacher, she was very kind and always willing to give me all the explanations I needed, about the content of the course or about other things, For example, when he sent us an email that contained all the Spanish books that I can use to teach older people and children. And he also always asked me several times if I had questions or doubts, to make sure I was understanding everything he said. The questionnaire exercises have also been important because they have allowed me to do a kind of self-evaluation. Course that I recommend 100%.
I found the course very interesting and very enjoyable. It has exceeded my expectations since I did not expect it to be so complete or that it was so personalized. The material created for it is very practical and summarizes in a clear and simple way techniques and specialized resources in teaching Spanish. On the other hand, the summary of the components of Spanish grammar and the list of resources and editorials is very useful to start moving in the world of teaching Spanish. The tutor is always at your disposal to answer any doubts, although he does everything so pleasant and simple that they do not even think about it. This course clearly introduces us to the world of teaching Spanish and is highly recommended as it refreshes aspects of the Spanish language and culture.
