SPANISH LANGUAGE COURSES

Our Intensive Spanish Programs merge language and culture. We believe that the best way to learn a language is by living it through its traditions, culture, business, music, art, architecture and most importantly its people.
Therefore, our Intensive Spanish Programs include 20 Spanish Language classes plus 5 specialized classes per week, where students can choose to study the subjects that inspire them the most (Oral expression and communication classes, business and economics classes, general culture, history and art classes, or DELE Exam Preparation classes).
Groups are small with a maximum of 8 students, and each class lasts 55 minutes.
In addition to the language classes, students will have the chance to practice their new skills in a bilingual working environment and in their day-to-day life, by connecting with locals in various activities.
At the end of the program, students receive a certificate guaranteed by Instituto Cervantes, stating the Spanish Language Level that the student has achieved.
This certificate can be used to transfer these studies to the student’s home university depending on their academic itinerary and Spanish Language level.

SPANISH LANGUAGE COURSES AND PART TIME INTERNSHIP

This is the perfect program for those interested in learning Spanish Language and having the possibility to apply this knowledge in a working environment without any previous Spanish Language level.
