Official Description (Provided by language school)
Kingsbrook Idiomas has been offering courses in Spanish since 2001 and aims to provide lessons that are both pleasant and efficient while exposing students to Spanish culture in the beautiful city of Barcelona. To this end, our team consists of native Spanish teachers who are both experienced professionals and formally qualified in teaching Spanish to foreign students. Theyâ€™re supported by our international administration staff who are extremely helpful. The size and ethos of our school means that students receive individual attention and staff are also available to assist with anything you may need to ensure that you have a fulfilling and enjoyable time in Barcelona.
Classes focus on vocabulary expansion, grammar and conversation although conversation often dominates as we try to get you to speak Spanish as quickly as possible. All of our content is compiled by our own teachers, who are supported by our Spanish Studies Director. The results is an effective and well-designed curriculum that makes use of only the best content from Spanish language books that are widely popular.
Classes consist of an average of seven students with a maximum of 10 people per class. This is to ensure that the teacher can provide the necessary student support to individual needs in language learning. Finally, we divide classes according to the six levels (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2) as outlined in the EU Directive for Second Language Learning. Students take an online grammar test to determine their Spanish level prior to arrival at the school. Upon completion of the language course, students are presented with a certificate of completion that indicates their level.
All of the Spanish teachers at Kingsbrook Idiomas are native speakers who have an impressive collective teaching experience and are well-qualified. Moreover, our teacher regularly attend seminars and new courses on Teaching Spanish as a Second Language, so you can be confident that you are in experienced hands during your studies. Our team of staff are also happy to help you with anything that will improve your time with use such as information about visas, jobs, and local attractions.
