Good evening, I'm a beginner, I don't know Spanish at all. What programs do you have?

Hello! Our programs are of many kinds depending on the requirements of each student in our area. These are mainly classes that, with a 5-hour weekly schedule from mid-October, reach B1.1 at the end of May of the same academic year. The 5-hour class takes place over two days, either Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday. If you choose the Department of Communication, it is 3 hours a week which in the same time period, produces the A2 level.

What do you mean when you refer to these levels > A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2?

According to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, all European languages ​​are divided into the following six levels: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2. This Framework offers a common basis for teaching and organizing material in textbooks or exams across Europe. Based on the Common European Framework, the language levels, the organization of the teaching material for each level and, in general, the purpose and teaching objectives for each European language taught as a foreign language are planned.

It describes in an understandable way what the student needs to learn in order to communicate in a foreign language and what skills will help him cope in any situation, whether orally or in writing. It also describes the cultural environment, of which this language is a part.

With the Common European Framework, the knowledge of each student can be easily assessed and thus their progress in learning any foreign language, beyond the educational system of the country in which it is spoken as a mother tongue, can be ascertained.

Take a look at "Levels and Degrees" to see what each level is in detail.

After how long can I be considered for a degree? I'm in quite a hurry and would like to fast forward to the Lower equivalent... but what is that in Spanish?

We are talking about B2 which is a demanding level and if there is no reason to rush, we recommend that you perfect it in 2 school years with 5-hour programs per week. If this is not possible, then you can attend the intensive part which is 6 hours a week and lasts from mid-October this year to mid-November next year with summer holidays. It makes the two school years in one calendar year. It also has very good results due to the fact that students choose it consciously and with a lot of appetite for dealing with the language.

Which test do you recommend? That of the Greek Ministry or Cervantes?

Whichever you choose, it's official. The difference between them is that the State Certificate is graded so that one is examined with one exam at 2 levels. For example, you take exams at level B together and not at B1 or B2 separately. Depending on the percentage of the score you get either B1 or B2. Then it matters where you will need it. For example, in the private sector it depends on each employer what degrees they would like their employee to have.

How many people do your classes have?

From 5 to 9 at most.

Are the prices listed in the offer?

All prices are very affordable, but those listed in the offer are for those who want to pay in one or two installments. For more doses, prices are adjusted accordingly. We will give them to you in writing and you decide in peace until your registration.

Does the enrollment cost?

Your enrollment is done by paying the amount of 100 euros, which, however, is deducted from the total amount of tuition fees. That is, it is essentially free. This way, however, your place in the department is guaranteed.

The enrollment can be made online HERE

If I decide to start later, will there be classes for me?

Of course. We start new beginner classes in mid-November and mid-February and in the summer. There are many options.

I am not a beginner. I had once taken some lessons. How do I get into the right class?

You can do the level test found on the website which will show us (in parallel with the discussion between us) which is the most suitable class for you.

Are the professors native speakers and philologists?

Of course. Those of us who work in Castille are Spanish speakers and philologists with many years of experience in teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language. We also collaborate with the Cervantes Institute and the Ministry of Education as evaluators/examiners in Degrees.

Can I attend online?

Of course. The courses are held both online and live (except during the ban on live courses due to the pandemic).

What do you advise to learn the language properly?

Learning a foreign language opens the doors to an unknown culture. Just as a small child gradually and slowly learns his mother tongue, so does a foreign language. We recommend (in addition to lessons with us) daily contact and personal engagement with the language. There is no such thing as an "easy" language. Mastering it is as wonderful as mastering our mother tongue. And today with the means at our disposal, it is something very simple. On our page you have audiovisual material (TV, radio...).

You just have to love it.

I decided to sign up. What should I do;

We will now go to our website to fill in your registration application with your personal information, the program you are interested in and the payment method you will choose and approximately 10 days before the start of the courses, we will call you.

Which books should I buy?

For starters, it's Edelsa's “Experiencias” series. We will start with the first book in the series along with the exercise book. For now we won't need anything else. When we receive your enrollment, we will send additional materials to your email along with the program per week. You will also be given a password to access "Alumnos de Castilla".
