FIESTA, SIESTA… if you understand so much about the culture and lifestyle of a people only from two words, imagine how much you would understand to actually speak its language!
So, just in case you thought about learning some Spanish while in Spain, Speakeasy Language School seems to be a good choice. Maybe it’s because of their really cool classes (check the students recommendations on the internet), their great team of Spanish teachers or cool location – the very heart of Barcelona, Plaza Catalunya. Maybe also because they are the #1 low-cost Spanish language school in the City.
The courses are built on a communicative and practical methodology. The classes are so-called “immersion” classes, meaning that the books as well as the teaching are completely in Spanish. Don’t be frightened by this though. The teachers are experts in explaining the material, so that you can easily understand it. The courses are a combination of vocabulary, grammar, conversation and exercises and cover a wide range of topics, so that you build your language skills in an optimal manner.
Speakeasy Bcn basically offers 3 different options, which cover most students’ needs:
· 20hr/week Intensive Program (Monday to Friday, 9-13)
· 10hr/week Semi-Intensive Program (Monday to Friday, 13:30-15:30)
· 6h/week Evening Program (You take classes twice per week, 18:30-21:30)
