Individual Spanish classes
The individual Spanish classes are designed for students who have specific needs. At the same time, they are also designed for those who need the greatest possible flexibility. The reason for this is that with this type of lesson you can choose the time and day of the week, allowing you to choose from a wider range of timetables, depending on the teacher’s availability.
These are lessons in which the student can choose the specific aspects he/she wants to work on. For example, explanations on the subjunctive or on a specific aspect of Spanish. These lessons are also suitable for the preparation of the DELE exam of the Cervantes Institute. For this reason, they are a good alternative to prepare for your Spanish exam.
In them, we offer you personalised content, which will be sent to you before the lesson and which will be used to teach the class. After the lesson, we will also send you the corresponding notes and practice tasks. In this way, it is possible to plan intensive periods of several lessons during the week before the final test.
It is also a good alternative for preparing trips, conferences or, in general, any task that aims to improve in Spanish or to learn Spanish in the most efficient way. For all these reasons, we can say that individual Spanish classes are the most effective way to learn the language. This is because they combine flexibility, personalised attention and specific content for specific purposes.
The duration of the individual classes is a minimum of 30 minutes per week. There is no time limit: there is only a limit to how much you want to learn and how much time you have. Below is a list of the skills required for each level, according to the Instituto Cervantes.
