Spanish classes at our language school
A Spanish course in Granada, Spain: How does a day in a class look like?
Our language school
will send you a written level test and a self-assessment oral test together with the documents for the Spanish course. Students have to send back the filled test documents to us one week before the Spanish course
starts. All Spanish courses begin on Monday.
Spanish classes are restricted to a maximum of 8 students per level group and are held from Monday to Friday between 09.00 and 17.00 h. There are 4, 5 or 6 Spanish language lessons per day, each lasting 45 minutes. Students are placed into levels based on their placement exams. Our teachers have a lot of experience assessing students' language abilities. We will not place students into levels that are too high or too low for their abilities. However, if you are a new student and unhappy with your placement, you can talk to your teachers. Teachers will then decide if a student should change level or not. Method and contents
All Spanish classes
are conducted entirely in Spanish
and are divided into two distinct parts:
The first part deals with the Spanish language itself, explaining its grammatical structures and communicative functions.
The second part covers specific topics in order to combine cultural themes with individual oral skills. This means that beginners will learn Spanish for everyday situations whereas, in the more advanced Spanish courses, students become involved in selecting topics of discussion according to their individual needs and interests. The reality of Spain in transition, the contradictions in the socio-political and cultural developments of modern Spain, the Moorish history, the Spanish Civil War
's dictatorship, Federico García Lorca
and the Flamenco culture
, or the situation of ethnic minorities are just a few examples of possible topics to cover. Particular attention is always paid to aspects of the Andalusian culture
. Educational material
The school uses its own material. Teachers work with photocopies or a grammar- and exercise book.
We offer the following 6 different Spanish course levels
which correspond to those established in the new «European Framework for Language Learning, Teaching and Evaluation». Each level corresponds to a 4 week Spanish course.
