Program content

General Spanish courses

We provide lessons at all levels, from beginner to advanced. These courses cover all the necessary grammar and vocabulary for spoken and written Spanish in a wide range of communicative situations.

The objectives, contents and specific criteria for each level will be developed according to the levels of CEFR: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 y C2.

We offer our General Spanish courses in two lengths:

  • 90 Hours: Ideal to reach the level you want.
  • 40 Hours: Perfect to consolidate a level or start preparing it.

Spanish oral and written skills

This course focuses on the communicative skills practice. Our goal is to provide the students with the necessary tools to improve their comprehension and expression skills: listening comprehension, reading comprehension, oral expression and written expression.

Spanish for business purposes

If you want to learn Spanish to use it in a business environment, this course is for you.The contents of this course Spanish focuses on language business use: how to write business reports and use appropriate language in business settings, including aspects of business culture and social conventions.

Spanish Culture

In the learning of a language, the knowledge of the culture of the target language community is of great interest from a communicative perspective, since there is a direct relationship between the cultural elements and the communicative performance of the language. Therefore, it is fundamental to provide the students with a wide and integrated basis of cultural knowledge.

The goals of this course are to learn and interrelate the main facts, moments and aspects that determine the Spanish history and cultures, as well as, the different hallmarks coexisting in the area. Furthermore, to improve knowledge about different aspects of the Spanish culture and civilization; understand and value other perspectives of the world; apply cultural knowledge to the communicative field and improve intercultural aptitude.

Spanish Literature

Literary language is the most beautiful and elaborated within the linguistic manifestations. Knowing the most important literary works of a language not only give us access to magnificent language samples, but it also provides opportunities to understand the world from a different perspective.

The main objectives of this module are three: bringing students close to the Spanish literature, contributing to the development of the intercultural competence of the apprentice, as well as, helping to build and develop their literary competence.

To do so, we will offer an overview of the most relevant works of Spanish literature, from El Cantar de Mío Cid (The poem of the Cid) or Don Quijote (Don Quixote) to the 20th Century. Meaningful and engaging learning isparamount. In fact, to achieve the objectives set out above, we consider the comprehension and the enjoyment of the literary works essential.

Furthermore, students are expected to discover some peculiarities of the Spanish culture through literary texts, but they are also expected to recognise universal ideas concealed in every story or poem.

To access this course, we recommend you to have passed a B1 or higher-level exam.

Spanish Language and Culture

Our course Spanish Language and Culture is actually a pack of courses with a very convenient schedule and financial benefits for the student.

Within the new perspectives that have to be considered in a Spanish course is the increasing interest in the presence of the cultural issues in the programmes, according to the conviction in that learning a language without reference to the community who speaks that language is a difficult task and not particularly enriching. Moreover, the communicative approach, that has been shown to be the most efficient for language learning, requires the inclusion of cultural aspects as it deals with a didactics orientation that keeps in mind the idea that it is not only important the linguistic competence, but also the extra linguistic competence.

This course makes it possible to harmoniously integrate different aspects of language learning and, at the same time, pay attention to different areas of professional development.

This course consists of the following modules:

  • General Spanish course.
  • Spanish oral and written skills.
  • Spanish for business purposes / Spanish Literature (you can choose the one that suits you best)
  • Spanish Culture.
