Spanish Learning Programme for beginners

• Prologue

It should be noted in advance that our courses are adapted to the characteristics of the student. For this reason, we follow some guidelines which are detailed below.
This course is focused to two types of students according to the Instituto Cervantes criteria:

  • A person who does not speak anything in Spanish.
  • A person who knows just some words in Spanish.

Therefore, this course is focused to build an introduction to the Spanish language in a practical and efficient way, considering such beginning as an essential step when learning Spanish. Thus, the techniques, methods andstrategies used during this course differ from other course levels.
