Intensive Courses

These courses are designed for those who want to improve their level of Spanish in a short amount of time. The courses comprise all of the fundamental components of the Spanish language: grammar, vocabulary, culture, etc. Students work on different skills using a practical approach which is based on real-life communication situations. Thanks to the reduced number of students in each group, students can participate actively in all classroom exercises. This ensures high levels of motivation and improved learning efficacy.  

Intensive Courses

ACADEMIC LOAD AND SCHEDULE OF THE COURSES 

The Intensive Course has 20 lessons per week (of 45 minutes each), from Monday to Friday, plus 5 hours of sociocultural modules that will be carried out during the week.

In general, these courses take place in the morning (from 10.00 to 13.30) or in the afternoon (from 16.00 to 19.30). However, this schedule may suffer slight modifications, depending on the season and the quantity of students.

NUMBER OF STUDENTS PER CLASS 
There is a minimum of 1 student per class and a maximum of 8, there are usually around 4 or 5 students per group.
STARTING DATES 

Intensive courses begin every Monday of the year (except if it is a public holiday), regardless of the level of the student. On days of public holidays, classes will not take place. However they will be made up during the week. If there happens to be two days of public holidays in one week, only one day will be recovered.

LENGTH 
Minimum: 1 week. Maximum: selected by the student.
LEVEL TEST 

Before starting the Spanish course, students must take a level test, both written (multiple choice questions plus a little composition) and spoken, in order to assess their level and place them in the correct group.

This test has no cost and it always takes place outside the course schedules. If the student is already in Valencia, it may be taken on the previous week; if not, the test will take place the same day of the beginning of the course (usually at 9.00)

TEACHING MATERIALS 

The Intensive Courses’ teaching materials (textbooks and supplementary cards) are carefully prepared, updated and improved by our teaching staff.

All learning materials are included in the price of the course.

TUTORING SERVICE 

The school provides a tutor free of charge for you to discuss any questions that you may have.

In general, these tutorials take place from Tuesday to Friday, form 13.30 to 14 or from 15.30 to 16.00. You can ask your teacher of the Intensive Course to apply for this service.

CERTIFICATE 

At the end of the course, the students receive a certificate of participation stating the hours taken as well as the kind of course taken and the level reached.

If you require an official certificate of your Spanish knowledge, we recommend the ‘Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language’ (DELE). These are official qualifications, which accredit levels of competence and mastery of the Spanish language, granted by the ‘Instituto Cervantes’ on behalf of Spain’s Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports.  

TIMING REDUCTIONS 

With the aim of guaranteeing that each and every student is in the appropriate level and to avoid groups of students with different levels of knowledge, the school reserves the right to implement the following changes to lesson times: for the intensive course, in the case that there is only one student in the group, the daily class will be reduced to two private sessions of 45 minutes each. In the case that there are only two students, the daily class will be reduced to three sessions of 45 minutes. The original price will be unaffected in both instances. 

FREE-TIME ACTIVITIES 

Apart from our Spanish language courses, we also offer up to four extra-curricular activities per week. Participating in these activities allows students to put into practice the skills they have learnt in the classroom in an effortless and fun way. On the other hand, it is also a unique opportunity to get to know Valencia’s culture and people first-hand.

We refer you to our updated program of free-time activities.

SOCIOCULTURALS MODULES 

The sociocultural modules consist of conferences, debates, talks and usually include a visit to some touristic sites, such as museums or monuments. They last approximately 5 hours a week. The topics addressed (festivals, Spanish politics, gastronomy) put students in contact with a rich variety of aspects of Spanish and Valencian life.
