Intensive Spanish Language Course- The Intensive Spanish Language Courses (CILE) are designed for those students of every language level who wish to focus on advancing their proficiency and linguistic skills during a short period of time*. Students spend four hours per day, five days a week, in a dynamic and participative classroom setting. An essentially communicative approach, along with the use of the most up-to-date audio-visual technology, are used to teach all areas of the language including reading, writing, speaking and listening skills, as well as the cultural component. Important topics in contemporary Spanish culture and current events, local and national, are used as the basis for improving conversation skills. CILE classes are taught at every level from A1 to C1 (CLM Level 1-Beginners to CLM Level 8-Superior). The average number of students per class is 12.
Intensive Spanish Language and Culture Course- The Intensive Spanish Language and Culture Courses (CILYC) are designed for intermediate to advanced level students who wish to combine their study of the Spanish language with introductory courses in Spanish culture, history, literature, etc. Students must place into level B1 (CLM Level 4 - Intermediate) or above in order to enrol in this program. These courses are offered at B1, B2 and C levels according to demand.
