Spanish classes for foreigners
We focus on a conversational and communicative methodology for teaching Spanish. The language is learnt through the recreation of real contexts, such as meeting people, going to the store or the airport, or even participating in a debate. The formal components of the language (e.g. grammar) are not the centre of the teaching-learning process, but they are studied in easy-to-understand communicative contexts in order to strengthen the knowledge acquired.
We don’t use a specific textbook; instead we prepare each class in a personalized way and we use authentic materials, this is, videos, conversations, texts, and others, that can be found in everyday life and that have not been designed for Spanish learners, but for native Spanish speakers in a Spanish-speaking environment
