Intensive Spanish group Course (Course A)

4 group lessons per day / 20 lessons per week

This is the standard and most popular course, available at all levels from beginner to advanced. Groups will be made up according to the results of the Level Tests done on the first day of classes. Two hours daily will be dedicated to grammar, in which you can expect a teacher-led explanation of an area of grammar, with spoken and written examples, exercises, and opportunities to practice and ask questions. The focus in these classes is on understanding and accuracy. Two hours daily will be dedicated to conversation, with a discussion appropriate to the level led by the teacher but taking into account the students' interests and views. The focus in these classes is on self-expression and fluency, although the teacher will correct errors or clarify grammar as appropriate.
