  • Students acquire knowledge of the language and grammar through direct experience and in an intuitive manner.
  • Students are in direct contact with Spanish, and experience interactive situations in the classroom, designed to be as real as possible.
  • Students develop communicative abilities that allow them communicate with native speakers in situations of real, everyday life. We emphasize this skill because we know that this is important for their stay in Perú and other Spanish-speaking countries.
  • Students give presentations about cultural themes and ideas. This allows them to become more secure and to be more fluid in their communication within group settings.
  • Lectures are offered about a range of diverse themes and texts, adapted to the level of Spanish of the students. This allows them to develop their ability to comprehend and analyze text.
  • Interactive classes are offered in which students are in charge of their learning experience: conducting workshops, presentations, individual exercises, or group exercises.
  • Audio-visual materials are used to provide students with greater ability to listen and to understand diverse themes.
