LET US ANSWER YOUR ?'s ABOUT...
Our small group courses cost US$170 per week. This includes the cost of all class materials, cultural workshops, access to on-site facilities, complimentary tea and coffee, and a class certificate. There are discounts available for multiple week bookings.
Our group classes only require participation in units of 1 week, four hours per day, Monday through Friday, for a total of 20 hours per week. This allows travellers who will only be visiting Buenos Aires for a few weeks, as well as business travellers and expats who may be here for months at a time, to all take advantage of our group classes.
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 small 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.
We offer an adaptability and flexibility that is impossible in traditional language learning programs that are based on textbooks, audio/video systems, or computer programs.
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.
Because of seasonal changes in demand, as well as the ongoing cycle of student assessment and placement, the number of students in any given class fluctuates throughout the year. Our goal isn’t to ensure a consistent class size, but rather that all students are learning effectively and efficiently. This can only be achieved by making sure that students of similar, compatible skill levels are placed together in the same classes.
As a result, some classes may be smaller than others.
We usually average around 3 to 5 students in our group classes.
This allows everyone to have the necessary level of interaction and practice with one another, and personal attention from their teacher. The structure of our classes is adjusted depending upon the number of students in a class, as well as their exact level of skill.
Because our classes are taught mainly in Spanish, we don’t have to worry about having a blend of native languages in our group classes. As a result, you will benefit from learning alongside a diverse and ever-changing student body. Students join us from all over the world, resulting in an invigorating mix of cultures, ages, and first languages. This gives our students the opportunity to not just learn about the culture of Argentina, but about cultures from all over the world.
