The goal of our methodology is to make people comfortable using their new language in practical situations encountered in everyday life, such as travel, conducting business, meeting people, using the telephone, meetings, participating in a conversation effectively, etc.
Students take both written and oral evaluations when they start their program to determine their level, and throughout the program the teachers at our school are constantly evaluating students’ progress.
As proof of our students’ efforts they will also receive a certificate at the end of the course. This states the language they studied, their level, and its location (along with any other information the student deems applicable).
Escuela Bellavista bases its language levels on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (A1, A2, B1….)
Our aim is that you and the teachers speak only in Spanish in class, so we try not to use other languages in the classroom and this stimulates the student to start thinking in Spanish. Students are always surprised at how easily they learn!Our methodology focuses on speaking and listening. Grammar, reading, and writing are all included, but we teach it through a very practical approach without being tedious, boring, or repetitive. We believe the key to learning a new language is communication.
