Teaching Methodology 

Our classes are carefully planned around real communicative scenarios that aim at maximum interaction and purposeful learning.

 

We keep a logical balance between the amount of grammar and functional language that is being taught at each level.

 

Content is gradually introduced and practiced through varied activities. Our classrooms are full of visuals.

 

We use PowerPoint presentations, video, audio and many authentic resources that support the teaching-learning process and motivate students to speak, read and write in Spanish.
