2. COURSE INFORMATION
These courses will be held in small groups and provide you with the opportunity to enjoy your free time in the afternoon and at weekends. Classes offer general Spanish tuition focussed on oral activities but where all competencies are covered, including pronunciation and understanding Spanish culture. They will be taught exclusively in Spanish, in a relaxed atmosphere, under the supervision of friendly teachers specialized in teaching Spanish as a foreign language.
Lessons will encourage you to communicate and discuss with other students and meet real Spanish people. Due to a mix of Spanish lessons and your daily life in Murcia, this course effectively combines cultural and language immersion.
At the end of the course, in accordance with the guidelines of the Swedish CSN scheme, you will sit a formal graded exam in our school. You will be issued with a certificate stating the level achieved.
Having the same structure, content and timetable as our Intensive Spanish course, this course runs from 13 weeks to a whole academic year, and will prepare you to be fluent in a Spanish speaking world.
