The school uses the Direct approach to teaching languages. Teachers introduce easy vocabulary and questions avoiding grammar, and progressively build up a practical vocabulary until students can take part in easy conversations. Grammar is explained later in Spanish.
Students learn by practicing from the beginning. The main text is the school's own, using the Direct Method, but exercises are from a variety of sources. Teachers use dictation, discussions using an overhead projector to show pictures and cartoons, and dialogues to put vocabulary and grammar into practice. Written exercises are given daily as homework. A complete Spanish course normally lasts 12 weeks and can last up to 16 weeks depending on the student's proficiency.
Each lesson lasts 50 minutes. The school is open during Easter and only closes on national holidays. The classes for those days are taken earlier or later in the week. Total beginners start the first Monday of every month; beginners with little knowledge could join that group one or two weeks later. After 4 weeks the group can be considered as Intermediate I and after 8 weeks as Intermediate II.
