Spanish courses for teachers
We focus our Spanish courses on teachers' needs. We help teachers to meet their subject requirements according to Teachers’ Standards. Our courses will help you to brush up your Spanish level but, at the same time, they will emphasise on how to teach Spanish. We will highlight the main problems British students face when learning Spanish.
Courses in Spain
We offer Face to Face courses in Spain. You will be taught in small groups focusing on your Spanish level and teaching skills.
You will be full-board accommodated in a family environment in your tutor's home. You will share our family lifestyle but you will have your own privacy in your bedroom with en-suite bathroom. By the way, Merche's food is already quite famous among British teachers!
You will always have the support of our tutors who will interact with you and correct the work published by you on the online forums. There will always be a person to help you and not just a machine.
The course is based on what you publish on the online forums. Your tutor will highlight your mistakes and you will have to correct them. If you are not able to, your tutor will explain what the problem was.
You will be able to practice your speaking skills with our videoconference lessons. Your tutor will prompt and give you all the opportunities to speak in Spanish.
You will be able to practice what you've learnt on your online course and you will revise your work with your tutor. You will be able to ask your tutor everything you need in your One to One lessons. Your tutor will solve your problems.
