Intensive Small Groups
We will check your level and interests in a free session and we will enroll you in one of our intensive small groups (up to eight students).
The levels and curriculum, designed by Instituto Cervantes (www.cervantes.es) is organized in six levels:
This course accredits that students will be able to use elementary language in communication situations involving immediate needs or very common everyday matters.
It is an internationally recognized certification tool that connects people from their first contact with Spanish and evaluates their level in Spanish from the beginning of their studies.
A2 When you finish this course you will be capable of understanding daily phrases and expressions frequently used related to areas of experience which are particularly relevant to you. That means basic information about yourself, family, shopping, places of interest, occupations, etc.
B1 This course provides the students sufficient knowledge of the language to handle situations which require an elementary use of the language. It is also known as intermediate, threshold, or just middle level.
B2 High intermediate level, also called “Diploma Básico de Español” accredits the student with the necessary knowledge of the language to allow communication in everyday situations which do not require the use of specialized terms.
C1 This accredits the sufficient linguistic competence to cope in common situations of daily life which require a specialized use of the language.
C2 The “Diploma Superior de Español” accredits an advanced knowledge of the language which allows communication in all situations requiring advanced use of the language and a knowledge of cultural background.
What happens when I am done?
Once you finish a course level (commonly in six months if you attend with regularity and actively participate in our classes) you will receive a certificate of approach and the possibility of re-enrolment in the next level without paying a new enrolment fee (you will only have to pay for new level books) … or you can either decide to go for the official international examination from the Instituto Cervantes (we will be offering examination next semester).
If you are especially interested in the official certification, we also will be offering EXTRA intensive groups focused only in DELE examination or you can even just register for examination.
Anyway, Madrid in Austin is not still an official examination center for DELE but we will be ready next semester. For more information about DELE examination visit www.diplomas.cervantes.es.
