European & LATAM Spanish Course

This gap year programme is the highest and most advanced level established in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. It certifies the level of Mastery.

The programme combines a unifying international focus with a multidisciplinary approach, enabling students to develop their language skills, social, historical, geographical and cultural knowledge, while also being introduced to European & LATAM politics, civilization, art, economy, literature, and international communication awareness to perfectly handle any kind of situation, proving a spontaneous capacity of adaptation to any context, with a great deal of semantic and grammatical precision and complexity of the Spanish-speaking world and other assorted countries at the European level from various perspectives. 

We understand that every student has different needs and different goals when they learn a new language. That is why we offer a wide variety of classes and activities to develop a substantive knowledge of study skills, critical thinking and group work while obtaining the international certification DELE. Students can also specialise in their studies with afternoon classes, recorded lectures and more.
