    Lesson duration: 50 minutes
    School's administrative fee: 75.00  US$
    Individual classes Single individual lessons of tuition can be booked at 40 US$. The combination of group and individual lessons is highly recommended. Individual lessons will encourage you to actively speak the foreign language and will offer you the opportunity to discuss individual problems and weaknesses.
    Comments about courses: Classes are divided into two blocks: Grammar & Conversation. Lessons are designed according to the student’s skills and level; so a student who, for example, is good at speaking but not as good at writing will be placed in two different levels, with different teachers and classmates.

    Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Participate in the organised events, it gives you insight and it is fun hanging out with other students. Try to speak Spanish with everyone, not German/English.
    The thoroughness of the instruction, the patience of the teachers, the opportunities to socialize and practice speaking Spanish.

    Other comments: It came as advertised. It concentrates not on dry drill but learning and USING Spanish though immersing the student in a Spanish-speaking environment. There are so many opportunities to not only learn Spanish but to use it through conversation and activities.
