DURATION: 14 weeks lessons, at 2 hours each lesson, plus work to do alone.
METHODOLOGY: Lessons are divided between theoretical Spanish classes oriented to business and as well as practical activities one would encounter as a tourist. The course will be presented with a communicative focus and will systematically apply the focus on tasks, always paying due attention to the learning of the 4 skills (oral, written, listening and reading) being oriented to real life situations.
The facilitator will be the vehicle of stimulus so the student puts into practice the procedures for a significant, autonomous learning, consolidated through self-discovery.
The tasks and activities propose functional contents and real life situations and every day events.
The program provides the students with tools that help understand the structures, roles, media and various idiosyncrasies within tourism and business situations. In addition, the course enables the students to both understand and write the language in a natural, fluent fashion. Moreover, our course allows the students adapt to formal or informal discussions with ease.
Every day, the more theoretical in-class activities are complemented by practice-oriented activities to do at home. As you incorporate the supplementary work into your everyday routine the more absorbing and rewarding the course work becomes.
