This is a four lesson per day programme of General Spanish includes an added four lessons a week of communication practice. The course is offered at all levels from total beginner to advanced and covers all aspects of the Spanish language including:
- General Spanish
- Grammar structures
- Aspects of Spanish culture and customs
There are four lessons each week that specifically focus on oral communication skills. These classes are in groups of no more than 6 students to enable maximum participation.
Each day's class work is further reinforced by an average of 1-2 hours of integrated homework.
The teaching programme has been carefully designed to provide an intensive, progressive course, with a good balance between the various skills and continual practice of the new points introduced each day.
The school uses an eclectic, integrated method combining many aspects of the communicative approach with structured learning of grammar and syntax.
Each day, according to the progress of each class and our detailed course syllabus, a new area of language is introduced and practised in a systematic manner.
This involves some elements of traditional teaching methods, as well as classroom activities such as language games, pair work and role-plays aimed at developing communicative fluency. Students are actively encouraged to speak in Spanish from the very beginning.
After class study
Integrated homework exercises are used to practise and reinforce the previous day's work and students are also encouraged to make use of the excellent self-access study centre either as a place to do the homework or as a resource facility for further study.

You can also go to Africa for the weekend and you will be able to see first hand a little of the modern-day Moroccan culture that in the past had such an influence in forming the traditions, way of life and architectural heritage that we see in Andalucía and Málaga today.
