Before the start of the course, all students will have to pass a written exam, followed by an oral interview, to check that the level of spanish is adequate for the chosen course.
In the event that the level is not adequate for the chosen exam, our teachers will advise the student on the exam most suitable for him/her
During the 2-week course you will get to know the exam structure in depth, you will work on each part of the test and you will be continuously advised by a tutor, who will solve your doubts, correct your exercises and make sure that you pass the test successfully.
We will use four test models dividing the 4 tests in two weeks and working with digital material, using books where students will be able to practice with the texts, the auditions, the topics to develop the written expression and simulations for the oral test.
In addition, our teachers will send you additional material or extra exercises so that you can practice at home and solve possible problems that have been detected.
Each day, we will focus on practicing two of the parts of the exam
On the first day we will begin by explaining the different parts that make up the exam, its duration and how to grade them. We will also show you examples of the answers sheets and teach you how to complete them correctly.
Then we will continue practicing reading comprehension and listening comprehension. We will also analyse texts, listen to samples of different audio-texts of the exam in class, like announcements, messages, conversation or interviews
