Why and how do we determine your level before you start?

Getting the entry level correct is key for you to be able to optimize your learning, neither too high nor too low, but just the right level, ensuring that you’re constantly improving on your Spanish. In order to save time, you will be sent a link to an online Spanish test a few days before your course starts. Later, upon arrival, you will have a personal interview with one of our Spanish teachers to accurately assess your strengths, weaknesses, and objectives. After the interview you will be placed in a class fitting to your level.

Why no more than 10 students per group?

Each group has an average of 8 students and the maximum per group will never exceed 10. This is essential for you to be able to practice during classes while still having your teacher’s full attention. Unlike traditional language teaching, our teaching methodology is student-centred and requires students to learn by actively participating during class.

Why do Intensive Spanish Courses in Seville take place in the morning?

Your classes will always be scheduled in the morning in order to give you time to take part in all the free leisure and cultural activities that are organised every afternoon. These activities are also a key element to the success of your Spanish learning, they include: guided tours, workshops, language exchanges with locals, company visits, and dozens of other activities that will help you develop your listening and speaking abilities, making for great complements to your Spanish language course.

The overall approach in the language development classes is communicative using a task based learning approach. This covers all aspects of Spanish language skills – speaking, listening, reading, writing and mediation as well as pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar activities.

Class dynamics include individual, pair and group work, discussions, debates, roleplays, presentations, written tasks and listening exercises. A friendly, supportive atmosphere encourages participants to share their own ideas and experience while sharing with other international students.

Participants receive weekly focused feedback thanks to both self-evaluation and a personal pedagogic session with the teachers, reviewing objectives and setting homework if necessary.  Students have regular tutorials with their teachers to discuss progress and ways to maximise their autonomous / informal learning. Areas for improvement are addressed through revision sessions, progress tests and additional language and cultural workshops.
