In Castile-Leon’s accredited schools, you will find a great deal of flexibility, with courses that adapt perfectly to your needs and schedule. You can review each school’s course selection on their respective webpages: intensive or super-intensive courses, specialised courses on specific subjects (business Spanish, medical Spanish, legal Spanish, etc.), courses combined with various activities (tourism, Spanish culture, sport, cuisine and wine, etc.), DELE exam preparation courses, private or individual classes... For groups of students, the schools can design customised courses to meet your preferences or the teacher’s needs. And all this within a family environment, with personalised treatment, in which all students form part of the family, and each is a name, never a number.
The quality of academic services at universities and educational institutions teaching Spanish in Castilla y León is monitored and guaranteed by the regional government of Castilla y León. In Castilla y León, you will learn Spanish using effective, modern and fun teaching methods at institutions with broad experience and specialist staff. All students without exception will take a test to determine their level as soon as they arrive in the city, which will enable the institution to assign them to a group that is in line with their knowledge of Spanish: whether they know only a few words or wish to reach the highest possible level. Throughout the courses, the student's progress is monitored closely in order to achieve the maximum teaching efficiency. In the majority of cases, language learning is combined with the study of modern Spanish literature, art and history, which gives the student a much broader and more complete vision of Spanish culture and idiosyncrasy.
