Spanish Classes Profile

The Philosophy 

At the end of each term the students will be able to interact with their peers asking and answering question about these topics.

In our classes we use different teaching strategies to attend the student’s different communicative needs. To be able to achieve this we work with small groups with similar ages, facilitating the learning process. Each student is unique and she/he deserves special attention in the process of acquiring a new language.

Our courses are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR): Learning, Teaching and Assessment. And our methodology is based on the Communicative Approach, through which the four language skills are promoted (listening, speaking, reading and writing), and on the Task-Based Approach, which presents the real use of language though analysis of specific situations.
