Methods of teaching and levels

Each Spanish class has a maximum of 5 students. This class size assures that each student receives the individual attention they need. Additionally, the smaller class sizes allow for better group interaction.

The classes begin each Monday and combine a mixture of grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing, pronunciation, culture, and various other aspects of learning, depending on the class level.

At Plateros Spanish School, we like to use a variety of teaching methodologies in order to best match each student's learning style and needs.

The objective of the classes is not only for the student to have a good understanding of Spanish grammar, but also to develop competence in Spanish reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
