Spanish Language School in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria: Levels.

Spanish Language School in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria follows a Curriculum consisting of 6 levels based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages:

A1 Beginner

After finishing this level the student can understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases aimed at the satisfaction of needs of a concrete type. Can introduce him/herself and others and can ask and answer questions about personal details such as where he/she lives, people he/she knows and things he/she has. Can interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.

A2 Basic

After finishing this level the student can understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment). Can communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters. Can describe in simple terms aspects of his/her background, immediate environment and matters in areas of immediate need.

B1 Intermediate

After finishing this level the student can understand the main points of clear standard input on familiar matters regularly encountered in work, school, leisure, etc. Can deal with most situations likely to arise whilst travelling in an area where the language is spoken. Can produce simple connected text on topics which are familiar or of personal interest. Can describe experiences and events, dreams, hopes & ambitions and briefly give reasons and explanations for opinions and plans.

B2 Advanced

After finishing this level the student can understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in his/her field of specialisation. Can interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party. Can produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options.

C1 Superior

After finishing this level the student can understand a wide range of demanding, longer texts, and recognise implicit meaning. Can express him/herself fluently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions. Can use language flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes. Can produce clear, well-structured, detailed text on complex subjects, showing controlled use of organisational patterns, connectors and cohesive devices.

C2 Proficiency

After finishing this level the student can understand with ease virtually everything heard or read. Can summarise information from different spoken and written sources, reconstructing arguments and accounts in a coherent presentation. Can express him/herself spontaneously, very fluently and precisely, differentiating finer shades of meaning even in more complex situations.

Level Test

Levels A1 to B2 are taught in groups and last 4 to 5 weeks, depending on the number of weeks in each month. The Superior and the Proficiency levels are thought for those students wanting to reach proficiency in Spanish or take the DELE Superior examination, and are only given in private or semiprivate tuition. For this reason their duration will depend on the student's progress. However, to prepare for the DELE Superior level, we recommend a minimum of 80 hours at each level.

Before starting in a group, the student must take a written and oral placement test. The results of this test will determine his/her level. The written test is taken at the school on Sunday evening at 18:30 hrs. The oral test will take place on Monday morning at 08:00 hrs. The student can also take the test on line and so save time on Sunday.

On the last Friday of class students will have a written test on the grammar and functional contents taught during the week, in order to evaluate their progress.
