Our course levels are completely designed according to the guidelines of CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). The Common European Framework divides learners into three broad divisions (Basic, Independent and Proficient users) that can be divided into six levels; for each level, it describes what a learner is supposed to be able to do in reading, listening, speaking and writing.

Why Spanish ?

 

Personal Development

Learning a second or third language is an investment in yourself. There is no better way to grow your skills and capabilities than by investing energy in a talent that will enable you to communicate earnestly with more human beings!

Phonetic Language, Easier to Learn

Spanish is a phonetic language; what you see written is what you say, remembering that the “h” is always silent, and that vowels are always pronounced the same, regardless of where they appear. This makes Spanish an easy language to get acquainted with.

Basic grammar is easy, advanced grammar takes some time to get to grips with but, overall, it’s much easier for a native English speaker to learn Spanish than it is for a native Spanish speaker to learn English.

Better Travel Experiences

You will enjoy your travels in countries where Spanish is spoken more when you can speak the language.

Better Business, Higher Productivity

Communicating in Spanish will help you to build better trade links and relationships between your company and Mexican suppliers, clients, contractors or others upon whom your business success depends. Better communication leads to better business deals and speaking the local language will give you a definitive negotiating edge.

Employment Prospects

Your employment opportunities widen and you become a ‘more valuable’ employee if you are able to speak other languages— especially Spanish if you are employed (or seeking employment) in the United States, Central or South America or the Caribbean.

Some companies in the USA are now insisting that certain managers and senior post-holders (or people aspiring for promotion) are able to communicate well in Spanish; particularly so in markets where serving Hispanic customer’s needs is a core (or growing) function of the business.
