The methodology you'll find on our Spanish courses

Speaking Spanish from the start

The main objective of most of our Spanish courses is to improve your communicative skills and so the emphasis of classroom activities is the development of your ability to speak and understand spoken Spanish.

For this reason, classes are conducted entirely in Spanish and you get plenty of opportunity to practise the sort of language you're likely to need outside the classroom. We don't just want you to "know" Spanish, we want you to be able to use it!

Due attention is also paid to grammar, vocabulary, reading and writing skills, and a wide variety of materials is used including published materials from many sources as well as materials which have been written by our own teachers | more about our teachers.

While the atmosphere in the classroom is generally relaxed and informal, you should be prepared to work hard and participate fully.


All materials you need to work with are provided free of charge. This includes one Spanish coursebook which is given to you at the beginning of the course.

If you take private classes, your course materials are designed specifically to meet your particular needs.

Course design and supervision

The teaching and the course programme are carefully supervised by the Director of Studies, who is also responsible for ensuring that you are placed in the appropriate levels and that you make good progress.
