The course offers a combination of intensive class time and Spanish cultural immersion to ensure quicker and more effective language learning.
Our tried and tested formula for teaching Spanish within an immersion context teaches students to learn Spanish in a way that enables them to communicate effectively using real Spanish that is used by native speakers. The lessons are planned to compliment cultural immersion, with reading, writing, grammar and speaking exercises taught to enable students to put them into practice in everyday situations.
The longer the class, the more students can focus seriously and effectively on the development of the four basic skills necessary for communication: speaking, listening, reading and writing. In an intensive four hours of class per day, the student will have the time and opportunity to work each of them in depth.
Focus through Tasks
Our teachers plan assignments and tasks for the students based on curriculum topics, whilst providing the tools and strategies to support them. The students are then asked to apply the Spanish language skills they have learnt to complete the tasks.
The teachers use material from everyday life (newspapers, CDs, internet and other authentic material.) The benefit of having quality lesson plans, and related curriculum resources to use in class, is that it allows our teachers more time to focus on what’s most important – teaching you! You can expect supplementary materials to be used alongside textbooks to perfectly complement your lessons.
A happy and relaxed student learns more. It is for this reason that our teachers aim to create a relaxed and fun learning environment that encourages student interaction whilst ensuring organized and focused lessons
All of our programs are aligned with and based on the Cervantes Institute. The curriculum and teaching plans are framed by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages
At the beginning of each week, students will receive details of the academic program including objectives, course content and bibliographies.

Canadian, Sarah Rudd, studied at Expanish in Argentina and here is what she had to say: The people and teachers are extremely friendly, as is the helpful staff. It is an environment conducive to learning and fun also the school is located in a safe and convenient area of Buenos Aires.
A escola é limpa e bem organizada. O staff é muito atencidad e irá te ajudan em tudo o que precisar. As aulas tem intervalos que ajudan os estudantes a “descançan”, e são bem dinâmicas. No sexto piso você pode praticar não somente espanhol, mas seu inglês, francês, alemão… Minha experiência foi nota 10!!!
