On the Intensive Business course you will learn the basics of business Spanish. You will study alongside active professionals taking the course to advance their careers and current university students on the brink of graduation.
The two or four week long programme is made up of twenty general Spanish classes per week, plus ten specialised classes focused on business Spanish.
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 eight 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, read and understand more and Spanish better. 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.
On the business element, (two classes each day), of the course you will build on what you have learnt on the intensive Spanish module and focus on the following:
- Practical case studies
- Balance sheets
- Chairing business meetings
- Negotiating tactics and skills
Options and information
While we recommend you complete the entire course, the school have designed a flexible curriculum to allow you to join the class at any time during the programme for 1, 2, 3 or 4 weeks. The maximum number of students for the business element of the course is 12 per class.
If you have limited time and a strong command of Spanish, you may opt to take the business specialisation portion of the course, two classes daily of business-focused classes, without the general Intensive Spanish course.
By completing the full four week program not only will you enjoy the advantages of studying all of the material in logical order but you will also leave the course well prepared for the Basic Spanish Certificate in Business granted by the Madrid Chamber of Commerce.
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.
