  • Tutor lessons for school pupils who need linguistic support with the Spanish language

 

Identifying and selecting a course that you are interested in, is the first step to begin your journey. There are many different ways of studying such as using Skype for online one-to-one lessons, or perhaps you would like to study at a different location than our school. You can decide at what speed you would like to study, we have weekly courses, intensive courses, and we may also be able to organize a custom schedule that better suit your needs.

Online lessons

This is for students who are mainly not resident in Spain and need to continue studies whilst out of Spain. Over internet or Skype media these courses can be for groups or individuals and the main advantage is that you still maintain personal contact with your tutor whilst away from Spain. The hours can be adapted to suit your needs. The course programme is identical to that covered in the school in Estepona.

We can tailor the online courses to suit any specific needs such as business, pre-university, or normal conversational spanish

 

On the beach

We offer the opportunity for students to spend time in local markets and public places. For instance:

As part of a language course we periodically meet im public places such as vegetable markets or shop to broaden the students knowledge of spanish through  interaction with local dialects.

We also conduct activities in places at historical and cultural interest such as the bullring, Estepona Port, and national Parks.

We organise social meetings in bars or Restaurants in Estepona between English speaking and spanish people to further improve conversational techniques

Alone or in Groups

Some people like to study alone, other people find comfort in studying with others. Studying in groups can be more economical, and it can also help you to meet new people, which may help you extend your language skills even outside of the school.
