A Spanish course specially designed for non-native teachers of Spanish in accordance with the standards proposed by the Council of Europe.
What is the Spanish programme for teachers?
With approximately 572 million speakers as a first or second language being testament to the growing importance of the Spanish language worldwide we have designed a Spanish course for teachers of Spanish as an additional language.
It is a course in which teachers will share and collaborate with colleagues from different backgrounds: nationalities, experiences, teaching and communicative techniques, and they will learn, above all, to teach Spanish with appropriate and proven methodologies.
What does the Spanish course for teachers include?
Our programme is developed around the mastery of the main communicative skills of the language, that is to say, oral expression, written expression, oral comprehension and written comprehension. But much more, we explore various pedagogies used by teachers to then apply advanced techniques to the teaching of Spanish.
The course is aimed at developing practical aspects of interactivity and communication for non-native Spanish teachers. At the same time, anticipation of possible problems that may arise in ELE classes are evaluated.
I am a Spanish teacher, what will the course bring me?
A professional, insightful and very practical vision. Our Spanish teachers achieve an advanced teaching level and are qualified to teach to students whose first language is not Spanish.
At the same time, we work on the communicative aspects for the classroom, deepening the teaching of Content and Language Integrated Teaching (CLIL) classes.
What extra costs will I have with this course?
All our budgets and prices are as quoted. We value transparency and we want the students of our Spanish school to feel comfortable and to have the certainty of fixed pricing from the outset.
What are the features of the Spanish course for teachers?
