Group lessons are a fun way for students to learn from the teacher and the other students. Groups consist of two to six students, who are at similar levels of Spanish. This gives the students the opportunity to support each other in class and outside of class. Studying in a group is a great way to get to know your personal skills while learning with other Spanish students and a wonderful way to learn Spanish!
The minimum length of group courses is one week and there is no maximum. The courses run continually depending on the levels of the students attending the school. Some students stay for one or two weeks, others choose to stay for several months. Of course, those who stay longer will achieve a higher level of Spanish, but short courses are ideal for people who want to learn intensively as part of their holiday, for example.
All the courses are available at all levels of Spanish, from absolute beginner through to advanced. Progress from one level to the next depends on the individual student, the type of course, and of course how much time they dedicate to Spanish outside of class.
We normally have enough Spanish students to share group classes with other students with their level of Spanish. If a student books group lessons but for any reason any other Student will be at the appropriate level, the course will go ahead but it will be divided into 14 private lessons.
It is proved beyond doubt that the most effective way to learn Spanish is by experiencing a total Spanish immersion. This is why our classes are taught entirely in Spanish. This way you maximize the learning experience which allows you to get the most of your Spanish studies. The classes are divided into vocabulary, grammar, conversation, readings and grammar exercises. In this way students develop a sound understanding of the grammatical basis of the language, and build on it with practical communication skills and everyday vocabulary, which they can use outside the classroom straight away. Teachers will usually set a short exercise for homework each day.
