The basis of our methodology is communication. Our objective is that the student will be able to use the new knowledge in the correct way. In view of this, as well as studying grammatical structures and linguistics, we stress the necessity of achieving communicative competence.
Our methods for teaching Spanish courses to foreigners are structured for various levels to meet the requirements of the European Common Framework. Our goal is to give students the strategies and necessary know-how to cope in a Spanish environment by being able to communicate.
Encouraging our children to learn Spanish and making it easy for them is one of the biggest gifts we can give them. It’s a fact that knowing more than one language opens plenty of doors, not only work-wise, but also socially, mentally and culturally. Some benefits of learning a language at an early age are better linguistic skills (ever heard of children referred to as “sponges”?), higher academic achievement and cognitive benefits such as enhanced creativity, better critical thinking and problem solving skills, among others.
