Upon arrival, your teacher will help you determine your Spanish level, and you both can discuss an appropriate amount of hours for your studies. We usually categorize our students into the following experience levels:
For those who have had little exposure to the Spanish language, we offer a dynamic learning method which is accessible to all ages and experience levels. We focus on basic pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary necessary for everyday living. For a Basic learner, we recommend a course that covers at least 20 hours of Spanish instruction time.
At this level, students are able to communicate and focus is given to more complex grammatical principles and vocabulary development. We recommend that the Intermediate learner enroll in 20 to 40 hours of instruction time.
This level is for students already quite familiar with the Spanish language who would like to deepen their grammar, pronunciation, and vocabulary. In addition to fluency, we focus on writing, expression, literary and cultural knowledge through a variety of media. At this level, students and teachers have the flexibility to determine the topics of interest to be studied, as well as the materials, methods, and time-frame.
