General information about our courses
SPANISH LANGUAGE COURSES
The Debla team is made up of enthusiastic and qualified professionals who share a passion for their job and are always keen to keep on learning. All our teachers are native Spanish speakers, qualified with university degrees and in addition to their many years of experience teaching students of all nationalities, the team is dynamic, friendly and incredibly motivated. Our teachers are constantly participating in continuing education courses and stay updated on current best teaching practices and the latest teaching methods.
The whole Debla team interacts on a regular basis with the students, both inside and outside of the classroom. We offer an individual analysis of each student’s particular needs, involving them and including them in their own learning process.
We have been working with our very own teaching material and books for more than 39 years now. Our lesson material is continuously being reviewed and up-dated always taking into account our students needs as well as the constant technological advancements.
Our teachers encourage and motivate students to speak Spanish from day one.
At Debla we organise our courses into 6 different levels of Spanish following the Common European Framework (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2).
Each lesson consists of 50 minutes, with private lessons consisting of 60 minutes.
There is a maximum of 8 students per class. The average being 5-6 students.
In case there are only 1 or 2 students in a group, we reserve the right to reduce the number of lessons in that course. In cases where there is only 1 student for any given level, we will of course create a group for this student and continue with the lesson.
