Spanish for Adults
Our Adultos classes, Spanish for adults, cover all levels. And we are never too young to learn something new!
We currently offer 3 groups for adult classes:
- Adultos 1: A1 level
- Adultos 2: A2 level
- Adultos 3: B1 level
Group classes run on weekdays, typically in the evenings, and last 90 minutes. There is a maximum number of 6 students per class.
Lessons are taught by experienced and qualified teachers who are either native or near-native speakers of Spanish. They enjoy teaching the language and seeing motivated adults acquire new skills and "the gift of tongues".
For the sake of progression, we advise starting the course in September, at the beginning of the academic year. However, every case is different, so if you are thinking of starting the course, and/or you prefer morning lessons, do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your individual requirements.
Available courses for adults
Our lessons are based on the Communicative Approach to language learning. The primary focus of all our lessons is on the student, and the ultimate aim is that our students can communicate and interact in the target language.
True learning happens during independent learning. This is why we combine the Communicative Approach with the Flipped Classroom Method. The essential premise of the flipped classroom is that we’re gaining the knowledge on our own.
How do we do that? The way we learn has changed: we are constantly stimulated both online and offline, and we want to reflect that in the choice of our materials.
For years we have been looking for the right methodology that allows our students to learn independently. And we have finally found the right platform to learn both on- and offline: Campus Difusion. Students can use the time away from the classroom to gain further knowledge and apply that knowledge in the classroom.
What is Campus Difusión?
Campus Difusión is an online platform with tons of resources to teach and learn Spanish: digital books, videos, grammar clips, articles on current affairs, and much more!
