Content

The Spanish course for one semester has been developed to improve and consolidate your communicative competencies in Spanish. The course content is oriented towards the acquisition and consolidation of linguistic skills in all possible contexts, such as everyday life, tourism, academic and professional life, etc. It includes written and oral skills and formal and informal usage. You can begin the course whenever you want, all year-round and on all levels from beginner (level 1) to very advanced (level 8).

Through our communicative approach and personal and individual coaching we guarantee that you will always be placed at an adequate course level, so that you will make progress quickly and effectively. Our objective is for students to learn the language and use it at ease. Different teaching situations (oral expression, listening comprehension, audio and video material, reading texts), theoretical and practical exercises and the emphasis on intensive communication will make you advance quickly. And you will not only learn to speak or improve your Spanish, but also immerse in the social, cultural and political life in Uruguay…and maybe even feel like a Uruguayan!
