Our Spanish Courses for foreign students are taught by specialists in the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language and by prestigious university lectures in the fields of art, history and literature, amongst others.
Teaching methods on our courses are totally active and participatory, as verbal interaction is constantly stimulated between teachers and pupils in the classroom.
Teachers employ communicative approaches in the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language, placing special emphasis on the development of the student's ability to make appropriate use of the language so as to ensure effective communication.
Classes are given in small groups of 6 to 12 students, allowing students numerous opportunities to practice language in the classroom. Such small groups enable the teacher to provide on-going, personal attention to the student. Our teaching is essentially student-centred.
The University of Burgos has adapted its levels to the common European Framework of Reference for Languages and offers all levels: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2.
Each student's level is determined by an entry test that may be taken over the internet before the start of the course.
The University of Burgos awards a course certificate to all participants who have attended at least 85% of the programmed classes.
