The level test and group classes are based on the CEFR framework for Learning, Teaching and Assessment, which is also the basis of DELE-Diplomas (Spanish as a Second Language).

The levels are Basic (A1, A2), Independent (B1, B2) and Proficient (C1, C2). The most basic level A1 starts from 0, so students without previous knowledge will start in an A1-group. If you already know some Spanish, you’ll get a level test to see where you should start and which students can be grouped together. Also for private lessons this is a good way to create a personalized study plan already before the first class.

We put together class material from several sources and with interactive games to improve all 4 abilities: speaking, hearing, writing and reading. You’ll also leave the classroom with your teacher several times a week to practice your speaking while discovering more about the Peruvian culture.

Our Spanish classes include:

  1. Level test before the first class
  2. Interactive speaking activities
  3. Lessons targeting areas of grammar
  4. Revisions of skills (writing, speaking, listening, vocabulary, idioms and slangs)
  5. Cultural activities

Here’s an overview of the Spanish levels that follow the CEFR: Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
