Establishments levels by SLC and correspondences with MRE:
Elemental: (Low: A1/ Medium: A2/ High: A2+)
This provides the attainment of basic Spanish communication skills, as applied to everyday life. This is what we call’ survival level’ and generally it takes two weeks to complete.
Intermediate: (Low: B1/ Medium: B2/ High: B2+)
For students that have already obtained a larger knowledge of both grammar and vocabulary. At the end of the period, normally about four weeks approximately, the students will be able to have a conversation in Spanish, give their point of view, express opinions and explain their experiences and thoughts.
Advanced: (Low: C1/ Medium: C2/ High: C2+)
For students with a solid knowledge of the language and who are able to talk fluently.
At the end of the period, their level of ability will be medium-high and they will be able to express themselves more precisely in different ways.
This level is usually directed to gain knowledge of the language for specific aims. Students will achieve security and fluency in the language and will be able to discern between accents from other regions and countries; as well as being comfortable with the use of colloquial language.
EXAMINATIONS & CERTIFICATES
There are regular internal exams to assess the progress of each student. Our exam policy depends on the course attended. To monitor everyone's progress, there are also evaluation tests every 2 weeks and examinations every 4 weeks. To progress to the next level students must pass the corresponding exam. These tests and examinations take place during lesson hours at school.
Students completing their courses successfully will be granted the S.L.C. diploma and academic report which certifies the type of course, the number of hours studied and the level of proficiency attained.
