LEVELS

Our schools use a framework of six levels of language proficiency developed by the Council of Europe Language.

Basic User: A1 and A2
Independent User: B1 and B2
Proficient User: C1 and C2


A1
This course is intended for absolute beginners offering an introduction to basic elements of the Spanish language. Grammar Focus: "ser" and "estar"; present, perfect and future forms of regular and irregular verbs. Communicative exercices, role-play and informal expressions are also used by the teachers to help you learn Spanish used in everyday situations.

A2
After some revision and consolidation of the basics, the course focuses on the forms and usage of the past tenses ("imperfecto" and "indefinido"). Authentic material such as easy newspaper articles, comics, songs and simple literature will also be used. Conversational practice will increase your confidence to take part in simple discussions.

B1
The grammatical focus of level B1 is on indicative tenses and an introduction to the subjunctive. The development of conversational skills is of particular importance, you will learn to speak more confidently in a variety of situations. The learning of a language is closely associated with culture, history, society and politics of the country, so that humour, songs, lifestyle, culture, history, literature, film, expressions and also suggestions from students are all part of the programme.

B2
The grammatical focus of level B2 is on the correct usage of the subjunctive in all tenses. Students can interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party.
In the course, we will examine demanding texts and teaching materials in order to create an authentic picture of modern Spain and to some extent Latin America.

C1
Students can use language flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes. The course will analyse typical problems presented by non-native speakers and will improve your grammar competence in some of the more complex forms such as periphrases. The students will be able to discuss with the teachers any topic affairs they would like to tackle.

C2
Students can express themselves spontaneously, very fluently and precisely, differentiating finer shades of meaning even in more complex situations. The Spanish course will help you to express your ideas in a natural and accurate manner, giving your Spanish a more authentic sound.

TEACHING MATERIAL
Together with the material we provide, some schools use a text book which is not included in the price of the course.
