Course text books are included in the price, and lesson times can easily be rearranged in advance. Your tailormade course depends on your chosen package:
General Spanish courses can be to the advantage of anybody, whether you are a rank beginner or already have some experience of the tongue. By focusing on grammar and vocabulary skills, Listen & Learn's general courses are perfect to develop your fluency in speaking, listening and reading everyday Spanish. They are perfect for those who want to start making their Spanish work for them, and a great precursor to a business course.
Our Spanish group courses are targeted for sets of 2-12 people, all of whom have the same requirements from learning Spanish. Everybody should be at about the same level at the start of the course, and the entire group should be able to meet at the same time and place each week. Grammar and vocabulary form the backbone of the general course, helping the student gain fluency in conversational topics whilst increasing their overall working Spanish knowledge. For groups who wish to engage in further Spanish study, the general course is an excellent starting point.
With our one-to-one Spanish business courses, you can develop your current Spanish skills to incorporate them effortlessly into your job - perfect for those employed by multinational organisations, moving abroad to work, or in search of employment overseas. Lessons are designed around your sector of industry and field of work, and tutors can aid learners in improving individual skills required by your role, such as giving presentations, writing reports or composing formal written correspondence.
Group business Spanish courses are intended for small groups (of 2 to 12 students) who already have a working knowledge of Spanish, and want to extend their skills in the arena of business language. Your group should have approximately the same level of Spanish, whether that be intermediate, upper intermediate, or advanced. You should all be available at the same time every week, and have complementary learning aims. Your trainer will develop your course around your group's language goals and particular field of business, and can incorporate any specific areas of focus, such as improving negotiation or presentation skills. Group business language courses are suitable for a wide range of organisations, including multinational companies, and those whose employees require a higher level of Spanish to develop international business relationships.
Specific purposes Spanish courses are a great boon to people who have already studied Spanish and wish to develop certain facets of their Spanish skills. This can include an array of helpful guidance, including the following:
