Intensive Spanish module
On the Spanish Intensive course there are twenty Intensive Spanish language classes a day from Monday to Friday in groups of no more than 8 students.
In addition, with the 'formula +1' you have the option of attending an extra and completely free daily class covering different topics of cultural interest of Spain and Latin America.
We know that for Intensive Spanish courses to be successful, it is not enough to offer excellent teaching. Other factors, such as socio-cultural aspects, also play an important part in its success.
Each day, the class takes you one step closer to achieving your goal: to communicate more and better in Spanish and to passing your DELE exam. For this reason, the school integrates all skills in the classroom, combining the intensive Spanish language classes with various tasks and activities in which you are the main protagonist.
Course content examples
- Reading, analysis and debates on newspaper articles.
- Telephone conversations in Spanish.
- Viewing and discussing films and documentaries.
- Listening to songs.
- Debates on current affairs.
- Learning grammatical rules in specific context.
The school runs an excellent leisure programme , (at extra cost), that will help you get more out of the Spanish intensive course by getting under the skin of the wonderful and varied culture of Spain.
As part of this course there are two hours of DELE exam preparation each week.
DELE stands for Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera, or "Spanish as a Foreign Language Diploma". It is the only certificate for non-native Spanish speakers that is officially recognized by the Spanish Ministry of Education.
This diploma is of great international value for those who are going to study at a Spanish University and who want to work, or are going to work in a Spanish speaking environment. In fact we advise everyone taking a long term Spanish course to take the DELE examination.
DELE Exam process
The exam courses are structured to help you pass the DELE exam and they focus specifically on the key components of the exam. To enrol on a DELE exam course you must have at least the same level of Spanish that is taught on the course. So, for example, if you want to take the DELE A1 exam your Spanish needs to be at the A1 level. If you want to take the DELE A2 exam your Spanish needs to be at the A2 level etc
There are separate preparation courses for each exam, according to the level of qualification (A1, A2 ). Although a very high percentage of students have succeeded there is, as with any exam, no cast iron guarantee that you will successfully pass the official DELE exam, as this always depends upon various circumstances.
