Language courses in Barcelona
The school offers Spanish classes given by young enthusiastic teachers in an enjoyable and personal atmosphere. We have been dedicated to teaching Spanish exclusively for many years and take pleasure in sharing our knowledge of Spanish culture, gastronomy and customs aswell as our language.
Our teachers are all native Spanish speakers, hold a University Degree and have extensive experience in teaching Spanish language and culture to foreign students.
Our Spanish courses are designed either for very small groups or private tuition. The classes are always focussed on conversation and practical communication. Grammar is taught in a communicative context and adapted to the specific needs of each student. Our lessons are personalised, offering a balance between grammar, writing, comprehension and oral expression.
Each group has a minimum of five and a maximum of ten students, so everyone can participate actively, while at the same time receiving individual attention. Students are welcome to make suggestions and contribute to the course structure.
Classes run from Monday to Friday and the number of classes per day depends on the type of course you choose. This normally ranges between 4 and 5 a day with each class lasting 50 minutes.
No classes are held on public holidays.
Camino Barcelona offers all levels from Beginners to Advanced: A-1, A-2, B-1, B-2, C-1 and C-2. Our levels follow the European Framework of References for Languages as well as the guidelines of Instituto Cervantes.
At the end of the course you will be given a certificate of attendance indicating the length, intensity and level of your course.
