All modern teaching methods are employed and a very personalised teaching service is provided which caters for the needs of the individual students. Groups consist of an average of 6 to 12 participants, intermittently also up to 14. Our students come from all over the word: German, Dutch, Scandinavian… are the most popular nationalities you can find during your stay with us. Mostly of then are in their 20’s, but we also welcome senior students. An hour of instruction consists of 50 min.
Students are given a level test on line before of arrival and the first day are placed in class according to their knowledge of the Spanish Language. We insist that all our students complete daily homework exercises and attend all their classes. This is to enable the whole class to progress rapidly and at the same pace.
An Attendance Certificate will be issued by Colegio Internacional Alicante at the end of the course, but we reserve the right to refuse such a certificate to any student who did not attend 80% of the classes or an Academic Progress Certificate. In this case, in addition to class attendance, you must obtain an average 70% between:
- The written exam (70%)
- Participation and activities in class (30%)
