Students have fun!.

All classes can be offered in a GROUP SETTING or PRIVATE TUTORIALS.

DETAILS ABOUT OUR CLASSES

We would like to provide you with as much information as you require about the Spanish classes. That is why we encourage you to give us a call at:

( 905 ) 648-9969

We have small groups with personalized attention or private tutorials where the class is designed for your needs only.

The instructor will find out the best way for you to learn, as some people learn better visually, others aurally, etc. The instruction is also designed to fulfill your needs as a learner while using the communicative and situational approach.

Our courses help you learn how to think in Spanish, rather than translate from English to Spanish. The use of the Spanish language is from the first class by getting into different “day to day ” situations (e.g. asking for directions).

Four Skills Classes:

You will develop competency in the four skills, which are speaking, listening, reading and writing.

We believe that an important factor in learning a language is by enjoying the learning process and we guarantee that this will be fun! It will keep your motivation up. Students are encouraged to participate actively during our classes.

Through experience, we are convinced that learning occurs in the classroom, only if the material is meaningful. Please feel free to let your instructor know what you would like to learn. Since the course is designed for small groups, you will have a greater opportunity to express yourself in the class. We also hope that you will have the motivation and the time to do some work out of class. You will advance more quickly.

At the end of the course you will receive a certificate of attendance.

Flexible Schedule:

We understand that you have a busy schedule, reason for which we offer classes during the morning, afternoon, and evenings. Classes are held once a week for two hours for eight weeks in a group setting or a package of six hours to complete a level for private tutorials that you book as needed.

There are 9 levels of Spanish: 3 Basic, 3 Intermediate, and 3 Advanced. In one term you will be able to advance one level, for example, from Basic I to Basic II.

Basic I will give you the necessary basic survival language (e.g. asking for directions, ordering in a restaurant, greetings, etc.)
