Spanish courses in El Prado del Rey
Our Spanish courses are designed either for very small groups or private tuition. The classes are always focussed on conversation and practical communication. Grammar is taught in a communicative context and adapted to the specific needs of each student. Our lessons are personalised, offering a balance between grammar, writing, comprehension and oral expression.
At the beginning of the course a written and oral evaluation is made. On the basis of this each student is placed in the group which suits his or her level. All levels are offered from Beginners to Advanced. Our 6 levels follow the European Framework of Reference for Languages and the guidelines of Instituto Cervantes. At the end of your stay you will receive a school diploma stating the duration of the course you have completed as well as the language level you have reached.

Our teachers are all native Spanish speakers, hold a University Degree and have extensive experience in teaching Spanish language and culture to foreign students.
