This course combine the Intensive 20 Course with complementary classes focused on conversation. It is intended to improve oral skills through informal chats, about real topics, between teachers and students. Games and fun activities will be used in order to strengthen weak areas that students may have. In addition to putting into practice grammatical constructions learnt in class, participants will learn expressions, idiomatic sayings and specific colloquial terminology.
If you wish to do only the conversation classes, without doing the Intensive Course 20, please ask us.
The Intensive Plus Course consists of 20 lessons of 50 minutes per week, and 10 complementary classes focused on conversation, from Monday to Friday.
The schedule is usually between 10.00 and 16.00h or between 13.30 and 19.30h. However, this schedule may suffer slight modifications, depending on the season and the quantity of students at the school at the moment.
Intensive Plus Courses begin every Monday, unless it is a public holiday.
On public holidays classes will not be held, however they will be made up throughout the week. If there happens to be two public holidays in one week, only one day will be made up for.
*Important: To be able to participate in an A1 Conversation Course, it will be mandatory to have taken at least two weeks of intensive course or to show an elementary knowledge of the language (through a previous 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 8:45)
The Intensive Plus Courses’ teaching materials (textbooks and supplementary worksheets, supplementary cards and diverse activities) are carefully prepared, updated and improved by our teaching staff.
All learning materials are included in the price of the course.
The school provides a tutor for you to discuss any questions that you may have without charging any extra cost.
In general, these tutorials take place from Tuesday to Friday, from 1.30 pm to 2 pm or from 3.30 pm to 4 pm. You can ask your teacher to make use of this service.
At the end of the language stay, students will receive a certificate of participation in which they will be credited with the level and type of course taken, the total hours spent on that stay (divided into teaching hours, independent work and participation in socio-cultural activities) and the contents studied during the course.
If you require an official certificate accrediting your Spanish knowledge, we recommend taking the DELE exam (Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language). 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.
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:
- In case of having only 3 students in the Intensive group, the daily class will be reduced to three sessions of 50 minutes each.
- In case of having only 1-2 student in the group, the daily class will be reduced to two private sessions of 50 minutes each.
- In case that there is only 1 student in the complementary classes, the daily class will be reduced to one lesson of 50 minutes.
The original price will be unaffected.
Apart from our Spanish language courses, we also offer up to four extra-curricular activities per day. Participating in these activities allows students to put into practice the skills they have learnt in the classroom in an easy-going and fun way. As well, it is a good opportunity to get to know Valencia’s culture and people.
The sociocultural modules consist of conferences, debates, talks etc. 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 and others) put students in contact with a rich variety of aspects of Spanish and Valencian life.
