Below are the available course levels:
A1 BEGINNER: Our A1 level is an introductory course designed for all those who want to improve their professional communication skills in the area of business.
A2 PRE-INTERMEDIATE: Our A2 level is sufficient for socializing with Spanish speakers and it allows for networking with colleagues in Spanish.
B1 INTERMEDIATE: Our B1 level is sufficient for interactions with Spanish speakers in the workplace. People at the B1 level are able to read simple reports and write simple emails on subjects in their field. Further studies are required to function fully in the workplace in Spanish.
B2 ADVANCED: In our B2 level students function in the workplace in Spanish. Students develop the specific language for trade and economics. The course promotes intercultural competence and new opportunities professionally.
C1 PROFICIENCY: Our C1 level allows for a full range of functionality at work or in an academic setting. Students can produce clear, well-structured, detailed text on complex subjects beyond their own field, developing particular points and rounding off with an appropriate conclusion. Students acquire and develop specific language for topics related to companies, international business and finance. Students can also function independently on a wide variety of subjects and in almost any setting without any prior preparation.
C2 MASTERY: Our C2 level is essentially a master level. Students can express themselves spontaneously, fluently and precisely, conveying subtle nuances. They are fluent and display natural expression, differentiating finer shades of meaning even in more complex situations and participate actively in workplace meetings and presentations. Students have the level of Spanish that is needed to work in a senior professional environment or to study any postgraduate course or programme.
Assessments typically fall into four broad categories: 1. Practical presentations; 2. Written exams; 3. Coursework; 4. Independent study: This may include preparation for lessons, completion of assessment tasks, or revision.
On successful completion of each level (Beginner, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate, Advanced, Proficiency & Mastery), participants will receive a Certificate of Completion and Transcript awarded by the CSL. In order to get a Pass, students must obtain at least 60% of the overall grade.
Certificates of Completion and Transcripts are prerequisites for the next higher level and will be considered as such for a period of one (1) year. After a year has elapsed, students may have to take a placement test to move forward.
