Lesson duration: 50 minutes
School's administrative fee: 100.00 US$
Individual classesSingle individual lessons of tuition can be reserved 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.

    Additional information
    Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Just enjoy. I definitely recommend ECELA and Santiago to learn Spanish.
    Other comments: Sometimes the staff is not very efficient, in my case I had only one week of course so I tried to get some extra one-to-one classes, and for that I had to talk to the staff uncountable times till I got a positive answer.
