Both courses have a modular design to enable you to book a course for between 1 and 4 weeks. They are in "mini-group" format: a class size of no more than six students.

To make the course more intensive or more specific to your particular needs you could add one lesson of individual tuition each day.
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.
