Spanish Learning Programme - Intermediate levels
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:
- B1 – Enough language skills to understand and respond appropriately to the most common situations of everyday life and to communicate desires and needs of basic needs and desires during a normal day.
- B2 – Enough language skills to engage in ordinary situations of everyday life, under normal circumstances of communication that do not require any specialized use of the Spanish language.
Therefore, this course is focused to improve the Spanish skills to get these language capacities. Thus, the techniques, methods and strategies used during this course differ from other course levels.
