Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
As a group, you will participate in a variety of in-class exercises that explore the week’s topics. Students engage in conversational situations, play games that enhance reading and verbal skills, and participate in audio and video exercises that simulate real-life interactions that you will experience on the friendly streets of Buenos Aires.
The goal of our intensive group classes is to develop your Spanish language skills to the point where you can communicate in everyday practical situations.
Our group classes focus on conversational skills, but also cover the important basics of grammar, so that you can effectively communicate in Spanish through writing, reading, speaking, and listening.
All our class material is frequently reviewed and updated by our academic director. These materials are designed to emphasize local Argentinian Spanish usage and customs and incorporate current events and cultural concerns. This means that topics of discussion are as timely and relevant as possible.
Our classes are carefully prepared ahead of time in order to best meet your needs. Before a new set of classes starts, our academic director evaluates the Spanish language skill level of all new students by using a written test and an oral interview.
The advantage of this process is that it doesn’t matter how much background knowledge of the language you have, or whether you’ve learned it through formal studies in school or informal exposure on the street. Our experience has shown that we are able to accurately assess and place all students according to their language abilities, creating the best possible environment in which to further develop their skills.
You won’t waste valuable time rehashing concepts that you already understand well.
We will meet you at your level of Spanish fluency, so you can continue to develop your understanding of the Spanish language alongside other people at your skill level.
Every Friday, classes are concluded with a short test that assesses students on the skills they have learned over the week. This allows both you and the school to keep track of your progress, and to make sure that you are only moved to the next level when you are ready.
Our curriculum is designed around this progression through skill levels, but is also adaptable to the needs of the group as a whole. Our academic director plans and oversees all group classes, and works with teachers so that she can monitor the progress of all students. This ensures that the needs of every student are met.
