Our goal is to help you communicate in Spanish. There are four areas of communication: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. In our program we consider all four areas. Because we have an emphasis in Spanish conversation; even our group program includes two hours of individual conversation, to get your conversation skills up as quick as possible.
Our standard program has eight levels: from Beginner to close to Native Speaker. Upon your arrival at the Institute you will take a written and an oral exam that will help us determine in which level you will get the most out of the program. You can take our placement exam (The result of this exam is approximate).
The duration of each level is 3 weeks. You may take one level or several consecutive levels at a time. Our courses are intensive 6-hours a day in which two of them are actually hands on Spanish in Conversation.
You will receive as part of your course a Textbook / Workbook with CD according to your level, a Verb-conjugation book (5,000 verbs), a Spanish Encyclopedic Dictionary and notebooks.
Morning classes are from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (maximum 6 students). Our morning classes are completely interactive. In the morning you will cover different components of the language. You will have Spanish Grammar, Spanish Vocabulary and Practice, Interactive Lab, Spanish Reading, Pronunciation, Culture, Writing, etc.
Afternoon classes are from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. (one student per instructor). In the afternoon you will have one-on-one hands on practice of all the topics you learned in the morning classes as you practice your Spanish Conversation with a Native Speaker. The Native Speaker will escort you to places of interest and talk to you in Spanish as he or she corrects your pronunciation and builds your vocabulary. You will be given a list of all the places of interest in Puebla, so you will be able to decide which places you will like to visit.
