Before commencing their language course, students take a placement test which helps us to place them in the correct level and also to reveal the linguistic weaknesses particular to each respective group.

With consent of the teacher, students can change groups during their duration of their course. All classes will be held completely in Spanish, because we consider this to be the best method to learn a foreign language.

Besides, there will be a change of teacher every one to two weeks, which helps the students get used to different native speakers. All students take a written test prior to the course which will help us to determine their level of Spanish.
