COURSE CONTENT AND DESCRIPTION
If you're a complete beginner at Spanish, we recommend that you take Spanish Lessons
in Buenos Aires as these will provide an excellent base to learn from. Both private
lessons and university courses are well structured and the teachers usually have
a high level of English, which makes them ideal for beginners. If you're not a beginner,
we'll ensure that you are allocated to the correct level.
These will be held at a nearby language centre with a qualified Spanish teacher.
They are monthly courses of 10 hours per week (five two hour lessons) and are individually
tailored to your level of expertise. The lessons are usually arranged on a one to
one basis where you will receive individual tuition and lessons prepared especially
for you. During your course, one lesson each week will be held at a cultural place
to enable you to practice you Spanish in real life situations.
These lessons can be taken for a period of one month or more and have no set start
and finish dates. Private lessons are recommended if you are a complete beginner
and want to spend time learning at your own pace. This is also a great option if
you want to combine Spanish lessons with another programme, such as teaching.
At the end of the course, you’ll receive a Certificate issued by the Institute your
teacher belongs to, stating that you have done the course, to what level, and the
duration in hours of the course you have completed.
