Individual Spanish Course
The individual Spanish course at the Jerónimo de Ayanz school lasts a total of 6 months. It is divided into two trimesters, which include a final evaluation of each trimester, with which it is possible to assess the student’s results and progress. It should also be noted that payment for the course is made at the beginning of each term, so the student may not take the second term if he/she is not satisfied, free of charge.
One of the advantages of individual Spanish courses is that they offer the student great flexibility and, at the same time, the greatest possible effectiveness when learning Spanish. This is because you receive the full attention of the teacher and, at the same time, because at the Jerónimo de Ayanz school we offer personal courses: the student’s materials and notes are prepared exclusively for him and his needs.
In fact, there is also great flexibility in the duration of the course, as you can choose a course of 30 minutes per week, 60 minutes or from 90 minutes per week. This is the modality chosen by those who want to learn quickly and efficiently. The length of time depends on the needs of the student. Finally, it must be said that in each of our courses we offer all the necessary materials for the student. The price includes the enrolment fee, so the price offered is the final price: without any additional costs. In the case of our preparation courses, we base ourselves on the criteria of the Instituto Cervantes for each level.
