Our competitive bilingual teachers
Your Spanish lessons will be handled and taught by our competitive Spanish teachers who are also fluent in speaking English. Since they are natives, then you may expect an exciting learning journey.
Our program curriculum and syllabus are approved and certified by the Spain’s Ministry of Education, aligned with DELE International test standard. We want to ensure your high-quality teaching and learning are relevant and recognized world-wide.
We have two unique systems for students. The first half of the class is all about acquiring knowledge about grammar. This is to help our beloved students master the structure of Spanish language.
After learning grammar from the first half of the class, we then go to the second part which is about speaking and listening. We make sure that our students get many opportunities to apply the knowledge about Spanish grammar by speaking. Also, we give them the chance to learn Spanish accent and intonation through listening.
Our Spanish Courses are based on Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEF or CEFR) was put together by the Council of Europe as a way of standardising the levels of language exams in different regions. It is very widely used internationally, and all-important exams are mapped to the CEFR.
There are six levels: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2.
Level A1 – This is the beginner’s level for students eager to learn Spanish. A topic example in this course covers common greetings. After completing this level, you’ll be able to understand basic phrases and terms used in day-to-day situations.
Level A2 – This course covers basic knowledge of the Spanish language. Topic examples include personal information, employment and local geography. When you complete Level A2, you’ll be able to articulate yourself in basic Spanish.
Level B1 – This level is also referred to as pre-intermediate. A course topic to expect will cover regular life encounters particularly at work or school. After this course, you’ll be able to communicate effectively in varied situations, especially while travelling. You’ll also be able to air opinions and provide relevant explanations for them.
Level B2 – Also known as the intermediate level, this course deals with complex texts. A topic example here is technical discussion. When you learn Spanish to this level, you’ll be able to speak the language with fluency. In addition, you’ll be capable of writing detailed and concise texts.
Level C1 – This is the upper intermediate level. Topics are varied in this level. They consist professional, academic and social contexts. Graduates can write detailed texts using well-organised patterns.
Level C2 – This is advanced Spanish. A topic to expect when you learn Spanish to this level is the reconstruction of arguments coherently. At the end of Level C2, students can summarise complex info, express themselves fluently and distinguish meanings in complex settings.
The DELE system is broken down 3 broad levels of competency with a total of 2 sub levels each.
“A” level competency standards cover a rudimentary introduction to Spanish and use of Spanish in everyday situations. Focus is less technical, and improvements can be seen fast. Contents focus on more breath and exposure rather than technical semantics.
“B” level competency standards cover the use of the language both, spoken and written in more depth. Focus will be on proper usage in different situations, effectively communicating more complex topics where Spanish is spoken, as well as being able to communicate and debate general topics. Progress may seem slower at this stage but ability upon achieving relevant competencies result in a richer understanding and appreciation for the language.
“C” level competency standards ultimately result in langue mastery. Students at this stage will be able to understand subtle nuances, spontaneously adapt to different and complex situation and be able to discuss and produce detailed text on technical and complex topics.
For learners to interact with teachers and classmates, you may also participate in group classes wherein you can practice or do some activities using the target language.
Kids at the age of min 4 years old can start learning this beautiful language along with others similar age group friends. Our Spanish teachers are also mostly trained in early-childhood to better understand how children can best learn Spanish.
