FUNDAE (Fundación Tripartita)

Most courses for employees are elegible for subsidies in Spain from La Fundación Tripartita para el empleo en el trabajo.

The amount awarded depends on the number of hours and students in the course, as well as the credit available to your company. Even the smallest companies have at least 420€ credit available annually. For larger groups – for example a group of more than 5 people – it is possible to obtain a subsidy to cover 100% of the cost in some cases. With smaller groups the subsidy covers part of the course cost.

To compensate the extra paperwork of applying for and justifying the subsidy, an administrative fee of 10% is charged and is also covered by the subsidy. If you have any questions or concerns about subsidies, you can contact us to find out more about what’s available.

Frequently asked questions

What will the classes be like?
Fun, engaging and dynamic!

The classes will be held in your place of work and typically in groups of 6 students sitting round a table. Our teachers are very adaptable and it’s not necessary to have a whiteboard or any specific equipment. The classes are all student centred, which means that the focus is on the students speaking and practising, led by the teacher. The classes are carefully prepared and structured by a professional teacher, with each lesson focussed around one or two topics and language points. There will also be plenty of time for reviewing and recycling previously learned material, giving you the practice necessary to achieve fluency in Spanish.

What does 'immersion' mean?
Immersion means that from the moment you enter the classroom you will be encourage to speak only in Spanish. You may be wondering, “how can I speak and understand Spanish if I’ve just started learning?” The answer is that all our qualified and professionally trained teachers use a range of techniques to help a student understand, without using any translation.
I feel shy about speaking Spanish!
We are here to help! It’s completely normal to feel shy or silly speaking another language for the first time. All of our teachers are experienced professionals and are here to gently encourage you in the classroom. You won’t be put on the spot and you won’t be made to talk if you are uncomfortable. We strictly limit our groups to 8 people maximum (the average group size is about 5 students per class) so you won’t feel overwhelmed. You’ll also enjoy our excellent customer service – all our coordination and reception staff are very friendly and helpful and are here to make your time at the school as pleasant and stress-free as possible!
I am a complete beginner. Does the teacher speak my language?
All of our Spanish teachers speak some English. They always aim to do the entire class in Spanish and are successful most of the time, but they can help you out with the occasional English translation if necessary. There are also several translation tools available online if you don’t speak English. You will be amazed at what you can understand and say, with the correct structure and guidance from an experienced teacher!
What is the communicative approach?
The communicative approach is a method of language teaching that emphasises students interacting in real, ‘authentic’ scenarios in order to learn a language. Nowadays it is considered one of the most effective ways of learning a language. You can read more about it here.
Which level is best for me?
You will complete a thorough level test with one of our experienced teachers in order to place you in the most appropriate level. This consists of an initial online test, followed by a speaking and listening test completed at the school. Once we have studied the results we’ll let you know shortly afterwards which group is best for you. If you feel the group is too easy / too challenging we can easily move you into a different one more appropriate for you. You can start the online level test here.
All of our classes are going well, kudos to your team for the hard work. Angel does a particularly great job in the business Spanish class as he seems to really understand the context of the work that we do. Alejandro Ugarte
