35 hours per week
Duration of the classes: The estimated effective duration of each class is 52 minutes, so that per each 4 hours of class there is a pause of 30 minutes.
Maximum number is 10 students per group.
6 distinct levels: A2 (Basic), B1 (Intermediate), B2 (Advanced), C1 (Superior) and C2 (Perfecting).
Level test: The first day of class, at 9 in the morning, you will take a test to determine your corresponding class level.
Schedule of Classes: Classes are given in the morning or in the afternoon, depending on the level.
4 hours daily of Grammar and Práctical Conversation (spoken and written) + 2 hours daily of Vocabulary and Writing + 1 daily of Conversation. This is a strictyly speaking intensive course: in addition to the intensive base course, the daily schedule includes two hours of vocabulary and writing skills, and one hour of conversation.
Students quickly improve their fluency and further practise all the communication skills by actively participating in class. By the end of the program, students feel more confident when using Spanish, as their knowledge has been highly reinforced. It is perfect for those who seek a substantial improvement in the short term.
The course is to be taken within one or two weeks, but it can be extended by request of the student.
Monitoring of the students’ progress
Beyond the initial level test, which assesses the student’s level at the beginning of the course, there is a constant monitoring of his/her progress based on continuous evaluation. This monitoring process concludes with a final exam, which determines the level of Spanish reached by the student at the end of his course.
Didactic materials used in class
Apart from the didactic materials of different publishers and levels which consist of a student book, a workbook and a teacher’s guide-book, we have the use of blackboards, TV’s, DVD’s and CD players in each classroom. This allows us to realize all the reproductions proposed in the didactic materials, and the extra material each teacher considers appropriate. Furthermore, we have a laptop with internet access which the teachers can use at any time. The school also offers computers with internet access for the students.
Normally each level is completed with the lecture of an adapted version of a Spanish book or novel, once a week; an hour is devoted to this material including summaries, vocabulary, and comments. On higher levels, we propose an audiovisual presentation every two months as extra class material.
Final student satisfaction survey
At the end of their course and stay at Tía Tula, students receive a satisfaction survey which will be considered for further improvement.
