OUR SPANISH COURSES IN SANTIAGO AT A GLANCE
Our Spanish courses differ from those of other language schools in Santiago in terms of progression and, related to this, the short duration.
We work with 8 different levels. Each level has 1 week of duration, which means, that we pass the fundamental Spanish grammar in only 8 weeks, whereas other schools take 3 month for the same offering only a three level structure! This is your fast track to the Spanish language.
In the Beginner 0 and Beginner 1, Basic I + II and Intermediate I + II level we work with a workbook, which each student receives for free.
In the Advanced level videos, newspaper articles, literature and music of Chilean songwriters are used as a basis for discussion and work.
The emphasis in the Spanish classes is on the acquisition of active and passive oral Spanish language as well as the written one. In the Advanced I and II Levels we also use Chilean films, music and literature for the improvement of your Spanish language skills.
All our Spanish teachers have long years of experience and are native Spanish speakers with university degrees. In accordance with the TANDEM®-Method, we arrange for you a Chilean language exchange partner.

Spanish Crash Courses (30 lessons in group + 5 Private Lessons = 35 lessons/week)
A Crash Course is the Spanish Super-intensive course + 5 private lessons. Best for those who want to make most of their short time. You have one private lesson per day for the last 45 minutes, where individual questions can be answered.
