FAQ about Speakeasy, Barcelona

  • Once you have some knowledge of the Spanish language, you will always take a language test on the first day of school, or before, to make sure you are placed in a good group for your level.

    In your case, you have only completed the first 9 hours of course, so repetition is still very important, although they will often cover something new as well. A good teacher always knows how to adapt to the student. In a group course, this is sometimes more difficult because there are several people with learning needs. So if you really want lessons exactly at your level, I recommend private lessons.
