Frequently asked questions

What will the classes be like?

100% tailored for you!

You will be able to discuss with your teacher beforehand your needs, interests, strengths and weaknesses.

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.
What does 'immersion' mean?
Immersion means that from the moment you enter the classroom you will be encourage to speak only in English. You may be wondering, “how can I speak and understand English 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 English, how can you help me?
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 English teachers speak some Spanish. They always aim to do the entire class in English and are successful most of the time, but they can help you out with the occasional Spanish translation if necessary. There are also several translation tools available online if you don’t speak Spanish. You will be amazed at what you can understand and say, with the correct structure and guidance from an experienced teacher!
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.
