Our programme ''Spanish as a Foreign Language''
This programme is directed towards those who wish to learn Spanish in a friendly and academic atmosphere. Our Institute is situated in the center of Sucre, the Constitutional Capital of Bolivia, a place which is definitely worth a longer stay (''vale un Potosí''). Historically, colonially and academically formed, it offers a lot of attractions for the interested tourist.
Our teachers have extensive experience in teaching Spanish. Most of them are members of the language department of the local ''Universidad Mayor, Real y Pontifícia de San Francisco Xavier de Chuquisaca''. The speak either English, German or French as their first foreign language.
One lesson corresponds to 45 min.
You can attend up to as many as 8 lessons per day, according to your own preferences. Basically we put a lot of emphasis on teaching grammar as well as conversation to our students on their very personal level, so that they can communicate with others quick and directly in every day life situations. The student also has direct influence on the planning of the lessons if he/she wishes to do so.
