Our Spanish courses are designed to help you get the most out of your time with us! We make sure that our classes never have more than 8 students in them, so that we can give you personalised attention to help you improve the aspects of your Spanish that most need it.
We work hard, but try to make it seem as little like working as possible! We also play hard too - there's always something going on and we guarantee you won't be bored!
This is our standard course with 4 classes per day; it is a perfect course for those who want to stay several weeks with us. Optionally you can supplement intensive resedential course with the addition of 1 or 2 extra classes per day. You will be able to choose the content of the extra classes according to your needs, for example you may wish to receive conversation classes, or concentrate on vocabulary, Spanish literature or history. If a student has difficulty in keeping up with the other members of the same class, free support classes will be offered at no extra charge in order to bring the student up to the level of the other students if the teacher considers that it is necessary. This ensures that all the students will be able to make optimum progress at all times.
Classes usually start at 9am. We study Spanish grammar for two hours, and then the whole school has a break for half an hour. Most of our students usually go to one of the many nearby cafés to sip a coffee or freshly-squeezed orange juice and chat. After this we have two hours of conversationally-themed activities, which could be debates, games, lessons about Spanish culture or films. Students doing the 4-hour-a-day option are then free to go, while the others have another break and then some more classes specifically targeted at their needs.
All this means that you will have finished your lessons around lunchtime, and so the rest of the day is yours to do what you like with! Often students get together and organise things, such as trips to the beach. On the other hand, many like to grab a quick siesta in the afternoon and then head out in the evening to enjoy Granada's popular and diverse nightlife.
The school often organises things for the afternoon and evening too, such as guided tours around the interesting parts of Granada, film showings or tapas tours.
DELE (Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera) is the official state qualification for those learning Spanish as a foreign language. It can be taken at 3 different levels (elementary, basic and superior) and consists of an exam in either May or November. Should you wish, we can provide preparatory classes specifically targeted at passing the DELE, and those of our students that have attempted it have an outstanding pass rate. Should you wish to take the exam you will receive complete information about it in the school.
