Frequently Asked Questions

Course Information


1. How long will it take me to speak Spanish/ English/ Catalan?

To learn a language is to have one more window from which to look at the world. – Chinese Proverb

It is hard to determine how long will it take you to speak fluently the language, it depends on the student, the commitment, the time of dedication. To have a rough idea, we have had students that have gone from zero to being able to go shopping, ask for food in a restaurant and talk about their hobbies in 1 month and a half. Others take more time, but with our help, you will be given the best tools to further your learning.

 

2. How do I know what level I am?

If you are not sure which class to choose, read our Levels offered page or take our level test.

3. Do teachers speak English/Spanish during the lessons?

The effective way to learn or improve a language skill is through immersion in the target language, however complex explanations of grammar or vocabulary can be explained in your mother tongue. Rest assured we will have no trouble in making ourselves understood even by students who have little or no knowledge of the language of study.
