Spanish for seniors
Basically, with the Intensive and Super Intensive courses, we address all age groups from 16 years, including seniors. Very many participants in these courses are older than 60 and feel they are in exactly the right place. The Intensive and Super Intensive Course starts every Monday from the end of February until November.
However, there are also older language students from time to time who prefer to learn with their peers at a slower pace and in a very relaxed atmosphere. For this group of people, we offer the senior course Spanish “Master Class 60+” four times a year.
Spanish for Seniors “Master Class 60 +”
The main linguistic objective of the Master Class course is to improve the participants’ Spanish communication skills in typical everyday Spanish situations.
The duration of the Spanish for Seniors course is designed for 2 weeks and it is held in 3 levels (A1, A2 and B1). Students learn in very small groups of max. 5, and an average of 3 students.
Classes are held from Monday to Friday and consist of 4 lessons per day. It usually starts at 09:30 and ends at 13:00, with a half-hour break in between.
As in all our language courses, our teachers place great emphasis on speaking a lot in the Spanish for Seniors course. It is taught exclusively in the direct method, i.e. only Spanish is spoken from the very beginning. Our team is very well trained, they regularly take part in further training courses and teach the material with a lot of fun, wit and inventiveness.
Beginners learn the most important vocabulary in order to easily find their way in everyday situations. For example, it is about placing an order in a café or restaurant, doing the shopping, booking a hotel room or car and the like.
Grammar is explained, but is not the main focus.
At the higher level, the focus is also often on everyday situations, because they are good for practising fluency. In addition, we are also concerned that the participant expands his or her knowledge of the Spanish way of life and culture.
Our topics are not fixed, our teachers make suggestions and then usually choose them together with the language students.
