Now you might ask yourself: Which course should I take?
This depends on various determining factors such as time, age, level or purpose.
1. Time for your Spanish course in Malaga
If your availability to do a Spanish course in Malaga is quite limited due to your vacations, you might opt for an intensive Spanish course in Malaga. Like this, we can assure you that you have enough time to get the most out of your Spanish course in a short time. After your intensive Spanish course you still have enough time to explore the local area and practise your Spanish skills.
If you are a resident or will stay in Malaga for a couple of months, you might want to learn Spanish on a regular basis and stay tuned. Since you live in Spain, you are every day surrouned by people talking Spanish, so there is no need for express learning. Practising steadily – that is what you want. Check out our residential course or do some weeks a residential course, followed by a semi-intensive Spanish course in Malaga.
If you prefer to learn whenever it suits you with a teacher who fully adapts the content to your personal needs, it is best to opt for private lessons. It is up to you if you take a couple of private lessons per week or if you want to take a break for some time.
2. Age during your Spanish course in Malaga
Our semi-intensive and intensive Spanish courses in Malaga are for adults as well as teenagers (16 years or older), since younger teenagers have a different learning capacity. If you are younger than 16 and want to participate in a group course, please contact us. We will check if during your preferred period, we have enough young people being interested in a semi-intensive or intensive Spanish course and if it is the case, we surely will open a course for you. If you are much younger than 16, private lessons could be a good option for you. Like this, the teacher can fully adapt to your need and choose the content according to your age.
We have experienced that younger students who go to school, to university or whose school/university time has finished not too many years ago, are more likely to feel comfortable in the intensive course. The same applies for participants who also visit language courses in their home country. This is because young students are more used to be guided by a teacher and to follow the instructions as adults who have been working for decades. Being used to work more or less independently, some adults might consider the intensive course as demanding and exhausting. Ask yourself if you feel ready for four lessons of intensive learning and speaking.
3. Level of your Spanish skills
If you are a beginner, we recommend you to take the intensive course in order to make quick progress. Being a beginner, it is important to learn the basic vocabulary, basic grammar structure and to practise it. You have decided to learn a new language and in order to know the basics, you need to communicate with your group mates and your Spanish teacher. We know that with just the basic vocabulary, you might feel uncomfortable talking to the locals in the streets. That’s why you should take part in an intensive Spanish course in Malaga. Our teachers make you loose the fear of speaking and the more you practise, the better it gets.If you are an advanced learner (level A2/B1) and in your home country you might not have the chance to participate regularly in a Spanish course, you also might be interested in an intensive course. It helps you to strengthen your current Spanish skills and “poco a poco” gain new knowledge.
Having a very high Spanish level (B2 or higher), you have probably already learned all the important grammar like tenses and mood. However, you want to get in touch with new vocabulary and develop your reasoning skills in complex thematic areas with the other participants. Thus, a semi-intensive Spanish course in Malaga could be a good option.If you are currently or permanantly living in Malaga, consider participating in a residential course. It is great to get to know other expats and talk in a relaxed atmosphere. Take in mind that the residential course isn’t a fixed course, which means that once or twice a week you will be in the same course as participants of the semi-intensive course who study each day from Monday to Friday from 10-12h. Be prepared to study at home the content of the days you haven’t been at school.
4. Purpose of your Spanish course in Malaga
Of course, if you want to get prepared for an official Spanish exam, your preparation time should be intense and focused. Take the DELE preparation course or combine a group Spanish course in Malaga with private lessons, in order to communicte with group mates and to solve your personal questions.
