This course can be freely combined with the intensive course. It comprises the study of the specific features that shape the identity of Spain. It covers an array of content: from aspects of daily life, to well-known historical events, famous Hispanics and artistic representations.
The Culture Course consists of 10 weekly classes (50 minutes each) from Monday to Friday.
The schedule is usually between 13.45 and 16.00. However, this schedule may suffer slight modifications, depending on the season and the quantity of students at the school at the moment.
Culture Courses begin every Monday (unless it is a public holiday), regardless of the level of the student.
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.
To guarantee a full profit of this course it is necessary that participants have at least, a basic level (A2) in Spanish.
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 Culture Course´ teaching materials (dossiers and complementary activity cards) are carefully prepared, updated and improved by our teaching staff.
All learning resources are included in the price of the course.
At the end of the language stay, students will receive a certificate of attendance stating the level and type of course completed, the total hours spent during the stay (divided into teaching hours, hours of autonomous 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 differing levels of knowledge, the school reserves the right to implement the following changes to lesson times: in case that there is only one student, the daily class will be reduced to one lesson of 50 minutes.The original price will be unaffected.
