The Extensive Courses are specifically designed for students who are going to remain in Valencia for several months working as Au Pairs.
We issue a certificate for the ‘Kindergeldkasse’ in Germany.
The Extensive Courses are composed of 4 lessons (of 45 min. each) distributed in two sessions per week, plus 5 hours of sociocultural modules that will be carried out during the week.
These courses take place usually during the morning (from 10 to 11.30) or in the afternoon (form 18 to 19.30).
These courses are organized during the period between the months of September and June. During the Easter, Fallas and Christmas periods classes will not be held.
If lessons coincide with a public holiday, lessons will not be held, but these lessons will be recovered on Friday. If there happens to be two days of public holidays in one week, only one day will be recovered.
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 takes place outside the course schedules.
The Extensive Courses’ teaching materials (composed of dossiers and complementary cards) are carefully prepared, updated and improved by our teaching staff. All learning resources are included in the price of the course.
We issue certificates for German Au Pair students who wish to take profit of Kindergeldkasse.
At the end of the course, the students receive a certificate of participation stating the hours taken as well as the level reached and the kind of course taken.
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 the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports of Spain. You can join our preparation courses and take the DELE exam in the April, May or July sessions.
Apart from our Spanish language courses, we also offer up to four extra-curricular activities per week. Participating in these activities allows for 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.
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.
