Academia Pradoventura offers different types of courses in all levels all year round (except winter holidays).
From our course program, you can choose the course that best fits your expectations and needs. Our entry-level test, which you will complete on the first Monday of your course, allows us to find the right group for you. After the test you will be introduced to your teachers and have an introductory lesson where they will determine your language level and learning needs. After a communicative breakfast break, you will start the classes with your learning group. The classes are very intensive due to a maximum number of 8 students per group. In class, you speak only Spanish from the beginning, which is proven to be the most effective method. Your teacher gives you the tools to make questions and sentences in Spanish from the beginning.
You practice the four language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing and learn grammar in a fun and interactive way. In many practical exercises, you apply the learned structures directly and retain them effectively this way. In the Spanish course for beginners, you learn to express yourself clearly and confidently in everyday situations in the Spanish language. At higher levels, the classes get more challenging with more and more complex themes.
The daily classes for intensive courses are from Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 12:30 and if necessary in a second shift from 12:30 pm to 16:00 having a break after 90 minutes. The superintensive courses with 30 weekly lessons are from 9:00 to 14:30 with a break after every 90 minutes. The one-on-one lessons usually start after 12:30. One teaching unit (in the text also referred to as lesson or class) has 45 minutes.
We work with our own teaching materials, created by the Academia Pradoventura’s team of teachers.
Additionally we make available the textbooks PRISMA in the levels A1 to C2, which are adequate for the direct access to the Spanish language in Spanish immersion situations, in addition to our own teaching materials. These books are available for purchase (€ 20-23) or rental (€ 6) from the school office.
For upper level students literature, newspaper articles, magazines, texts and grammar exercises designed by the teachers team are used. We intend to relate the classes to the contemporary issues in politics and society, as it helps to understand the Spanish culture.
Tailor-made Spanish courses for groups
If you are a group from a school, a club, or a group of friends with a common aim you have the possibility to attend a course especially adapted to your requirements (e.g. preparation of an exam, preparation of studies abroad, technical language or a course with a special activity programme). Please contact us and we will send you our quotation with special group rates. The dates for groups can be arranged according to your needs.
