When I enroll, how many weeks can I book?
As many as you like! Most activities are not repeated until the fourth week so if you enroll for one, two or three weeks you will participate in different activities each week. We add new activities from time to time in order to meet all of our students’ interests and to meet our main objective: that you learn and improve your Spanish whilst enjoying yourself.
Will I be able to practice written Spanish?
The CELEoral teaching model centers only on the practice and improvement of your spoken Spanish (listening/talking). Our method is effective and our knowhow is unique in Spain and our promise to our students is to improve their spoken Spanish. Nevertheless, we are flexible of course, and our teachers are certified Spanish Language Teachers and will answer and help you with certain questions you may have on written Spanish. Additionally, some of the activities you will participate in involve the indirect use and practice of written comprehension (for example, class discussions on a current topic after reading a digital Spanish newspaper).
Will I be able to take grammar and vocabulary classes?
There will be constant learning and practicing of new Spanish vocabulary and your teacher will correct and teach any grammar that he or she deems important. Your teacher will answer any vocabulary or grammar questions that come up during an activity or workshop.
