Spanish Courses

Spanish lessons at Guadalmina Idiomas are developed through a dynamic learning method, with the main objective of integrating both oral and written expression,  comprehension, practicing grammar and vocabulary constantly in class through interaction between students and working in groups.

Guadalmina Idiomas follows the stipulations set out in the Instituto Cervantes Curriculum Plan for the distribution of the different levels of knowledge of the Spanish Language, which in turn follows the requirements and stipulations of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR- is a guide used to describe the achievements of foreign language learners around the world). Therefore, our courses are divided into the levels described below.

The duration of our courses is calculated considering the objectives and contents to be achieved at each of the different levels.

To access a course at Guadalmina Idiomas for the first time, it is necessary to take a placement/ level test, except in the case of starting from a completely beginner level (A1). Once the level of the new student has been verified, he/she will be assigned to the course that corresponds according to their level. The first class at Guadalmina Idiomas is FREE. Once the student verifies that they feel comfortable in the course because it is their level, they proceed to formalize the enrolment. Here you will find our level or placement test.

At the end of each of the levels, and once they have passed the corresponding assessment tests, students obtain a Certificate of Achievement which specifies the level that has been addressed and, if required, the contents and objectives of the course.
