It consists of a four-week course or an eight week course of 25 lessons per week, just before the official dates of the exams, from 9:00 to 14:15 Monday to Friday. Students have 2 daily lessons of general Spanish plus 3 daily lessons dedicated to aspects specifically related to the exams. For exact dates consult us in advance.
Lessons start at 9:00 in the morning and end at 14:15. However, PLSI reserves the right to change the times of the courses when circumstances necessitate such changes.
The lessons last for 55 minutes and take place from Monday to Friday.
Students will be assigned to a suitable group and level, from Beginners level (without any knowledge) up to Superior.
The groups will have a maximum of 10 students and a minimum number of 4 students (if there are only 1, 2 or 3 students per group, PLSI reserves the right to reduce the number of lessons per week).
At PLSI the students are the centre of the learning process. The main aim of the lessons is to develop the communicative skills of the students. To achieve this, teachers at PLSI use material from varied sources, such as textbooks, material from the press, cinema, Internet, etc.
