Native Spanish teachers
All of the teachers at IELE are native and accredited Spanish teachers. Not only do they have a lot of experience teaching Spanish as a foreign language, they are also constantly updating their knowledge. Their average age is 30.
Every teaching method is put together by our team of instructors and adapted to suit four different ability levels (A1-A2, B1-B2, C1-C2). With our communicative method our students begin speaking Spanish on the first day of class resulting in fun and easy learning.
These are the objectives proposed by IELE for all of its students: Oral expression and comprehension. Written expression and comprehension. Knowledge of the modern Hispanic world.
Here at IELE we follow these three steps to obtain our goals for our students: Level assessment test upon arrival. Class lessons are divided into grammar and conversation. Small class size to maximize effective learning.
The normal schedule is as follows (depending on specific course exact times may vary): from 10:00 to 13:30 with a 30 minutes break between 11:30 and 12:00. Afternoons and evenings are reserved for cultural and optional activities.
Your Spanish Level
Upon arrival at IELE there is a written and oral evaluation administered by one of our teachers. This allows us to help you by placing you in a class appropriate to your level. At IELE we have four competency levels. Students of a similar level always study together in classes with a maximum of 8 students.
