The Intensive Spanish course is undoubtedly our most popular class because it is designed to help students learn Spanish as quickly as possible through constant interaction. The classes are given entirely in Spanish in all levels, from beginning to advanced, so that students are divided according to their skill levels.
Intensive Spanish courses are taught using an interactive teaching method which means that, whenever possible, professors will use practical situations requiring student interaction and communication. This communicative teaching method has been constantly refined over the years and is now an integral part of don Quijote’s success.
Intensive Spanish classes focus on all aspects of the Spanish language and theory, from grammar exercises to reading, writing, listening and communication skills. Students may practice Spanish through a wide variety of activities including debates, newspaper articles, current affairs, games, mock telephone conversations, interviews, films and documentaries, listening to songs and, of course, real life situations and events.
Additionally, all Intensive courses in don Quijote schools in Spain include a complimentary cultural class every day that covers a topic of cultural interest. That means that students can choose to take an additional +5 Spanish classes a week absolutely free with don Quijote.
don Quijote encourages students to immerse themselves in their host country’s culture and practice Spanish as much as possible. To facilitate this, we offer a wide range of optional courses that can be combined with the Intensive Spanish course. These classes vary by destination and may include activities like: dance, diving, music, cooking and more.
Each class will take you one step closer to your ultimate goal: communicating with confidence in Spanish. For this reason, we integrate a variety of skills in the classroom, and combine diverse tasks and activities in which the student is the main protagonist. Our unique interactive teaching method insures continual participation and active learning.
We know that excellent teaching alone does not guarantee the success of a student in a language course. We believe that understanding the local culture is an integral part of a student’s success. It is for this reason that we emphasize our “Formula + 1” method which offers students the opportunity to participate daily in a complimentary class or activity covering a topic of cultural interest. This means that all Intensive Spanish courses include an additional +5 cultural classes a week for free!
