Combine a rapid acquisition and long-term retention of key Spanish language skills and cover a range of topics on modern day Spain (cultural, social and economic). Classes at the Spanish school in Salamanca combine grammar with practise of the 4 skills – reading, writing, listening and, of course, speaking.
We understand that the word “grammar” doesn’t’ appeal to everyone! But the basics have to be covered, as they offer a way of building knowledge and retaining it, not just for the duration of your course, but in the years to come. The school’s teachers know a lot about classroom dynamics and are careful to create an inclusive atmosphere in which students have the confidence to talk Spanish. Of course confidence and plenty of practise are the keys to success.
This Spanish language programme is aimed at Beginners to Low Intermediate abilities, who want to see serious linguistic improvement and are aiming to achieve fluency over a number of months. Classes are then held from Monday to Friday each week and the Spanish language school is open throughout the year (closing only over Christmas). Once you have successfully completed your course you will receive a college certificate attesting to your level of Spanish language proficiency, this will include the duration of course attended.
Some people study Spanish for self-enrichment or want to know how to tell the time or talk on the phone in Spanish or to satisfy short term language requirements in high school, college, university or career goals. Others however, such as university or Gap students, aspiring teachers, translators or others with long term career goals, study the language as part of a formal training programme. For this latter group of students, formally proving competency in the language is a requirement and this is where the DELE Exams are of great value.
