Spanish courses in Marbella
At our Spanish language school in Marbella we believe that real learning is not simply confined to memorising a series of facts isolated from their context and the surrounding world. Our Spanish school wishes to immerse students in the Spanish life style and culture, through the most modern and effective teaching techniques (using role-plays, rhythm exercises, word games, etc.). At the same time, we prepare students for real intercultural communication.
At the beginning of the course a written and oral evaluation is made. On the basis of this each student is placed in the group which suits his or her level. All levels are offered from Beginners to Advanced. We distinguish 6 levels of ability and work in small groups of 2 to 8 participants in order to enable you to learn in the most effective way. Our levels follow the European Framework of Reference for Languages and the guidelines of Instituto Cervantes. Students completing their courses successfully will be granted the diploma and academic report which certifies the type of course, the number of hours studied and the level of proficiency attained.
Guarantee of Quality
Our language school in Marbella is an Accredited Centre by Instituto Cervantes. Our Spanish courses in Marbella are accredited with the CEELE, a main quality certification for Spanish as a foreign language. Our committed team consists of qualified native speakers who have considerable experience in working with foreign students.
