Grammar is explained by the teacher using texts and exercises. The activities planned are designed to complement the lesson plan so that you are always sure of how to use each grammatical structure and you won't forget anything.
Reading: we use subject-specific material that may be academic or non-academic, which will help you to better your understanding of the language, to acquire vocabulary and to get you moving in Spanish in a range of different scenarios.
Writing: letters, emails, application forms: whatever excuse is a good enough to practice this skill. A magnificent opportunity to revise the grammar learnt in class and to acquire new vocabulary.
Break: 11.30 - 12.00. a great opportunity to speak to fellow students, check your emails or pop in to one of the numerous bars close by for some tapas, chocolate with churros or a coffee. And of course, always in Spanish!

The second part of the morning concentrates on speaking and listening skills.
Listening: we use both academic and non-academic material. We use adapted listening sequences, audiovisual material, film extracts, songs and other such elements that make learning a language easy and motivational.
Speaking: Dramatizations, games, presentations and rhythm and pronunciation exercises are some of the proposed ways for practicing your spoken Spanish in the classroom.
