Spanish Course in Santiago de Chile

Santiago is one of the few metropolises in the world where you can ask yourself: “Should I go to the beach today and ski tomorrow, or vice versa?” It takes the same amount of time to reach amazing beaches on the Pacific coast as it does to reach the breathtaking ski slopes in the Andes with excellent skiing conditions during the winter months.

Santiago de Chile is located almost in the middle of the country, and divides Chile’s fertile south and its dry north. The capital has just about everything you could wish for. On the one hand, you will find beautiful places to relax, old colonial-style buildings, and small markets, while on the other, you can experience the city life of a hustling metropolis. In addition, Santiago is also the economic and political hub of the country.

Due to its wide range of opportunities, it’s not a surprise that around 40% of all Chileans live in the capital, Santiago de Chile. The “Santiaguinos” (as well as the rest of the Chilean population) are very friendly and helpful. As a foreigner, it is easy to make friends here. Santiago has many internationally recognized and prestigious universities, which has led to a lively student life and parties in recent years.

Santiago offers something for everyone, whether you are seeking a huge city with shopping-malls, modern skyscrapers, and a lively hustle and bustle, or simply looking to relax in one of the many parks and admire the old buildings in the historic center.

Our Spanish school in Santiago de Chile is located in the neighborhood of Providencia in the beautiful and popular district of Bellavista, easily accessed by metro and bus. There are numerous bars, cafes, restaurants, shops, museums and theaters in the vicinity for students to enjoy in their free time.

The language school has existed for 30 years, guaranteeing international standards of high-quality courses in a comfortable setting. The school is located in a large and beautiful home remodeled to consist of 12 classrooms with a capacity for over 70 students. The building is also equipped with an amplified common area and a computer room with free internet access. During the breaks between classes, all students join in the common areas in order to get to know one another while enjoying a refreshment and light snacks.

The school atmosphere is very friendly and international, welcoming students to Chile from all over the world including Brazil, Europe, Asia, USA and Canada.

The language school regularly organizes extracurricular activities allowing students the opportunity to explore Chilean culture and the beautiful country for a small additional cost. The excursions typically include day trips to the coastal cities like Viña del Mar, Valparaíso and Isla Negra; however, others include ski trips to the mountains, wine tours, trekking and horseback-riding.
Free afternoon activities take place regularly in the language school. Students may watch a movie and then have a discussion about it, learn Chilean dances or assist in making typical Chilean dishes. All these activities are for the benefit of the student to deepen their language and cultural knowledge.

The Spanish school offers top quality Spanish lessons. The course material is provided by the school at no additional cost. Each student will receive a notebook with the class activities containing exercises complemented by worksheets and examples provided by the teachers.

The classes focus on three different areas of language comprehension: learning the fundamental grammar rules, deepening their meaning and applying them through written and conversational exercises. This teaching method ensures that students practice and apply the principles they have learned to improve their everyday skills in real life situations.

Students can choose between three different types of Spanish courses:

•  Group Course:
Consists of 20 lessons per week and contains a maximum of 8 students (on average 6 students) in each class to guarantee individual attention and fast progress. The classes take place in the mornings from 10:00 to 13:30. In exceptional cases, class may take place in the afternoon.

•  Intensive Course:
A combination of the group course plus 10 additional private classes every week. This option allows students to expand on the material learned in the group course while focusing on preferred material and personal weaknesses. The private classes can be scheduled in the mornings before the group course or in the afternoons.

•  Private Course:
Consists of 10 one-on-one lessons per week allowing for individual assistance. The material is adapted to the student’s abilities and expectations. Student can also request specific themes and address material that they prefer to focus on.

•  Spanish & Volunteer Work (part-time):
Especially for our Spanish students, we have created a program that allows students to become immersed in the Chilean culture by becoming part of the society. This program combines a Spanish course in the mornings and volunteer work 2 to 4 afternoons per week. This gives participants the opportunity to perfectly balance their free time between volunteer work and other extracurricular activities. Students have the advantage of practicing newly acquired Spanish skills in real life situations; probably the most efficient way to learn a foreign language!

An important part of our cultural programs in Chile is a nice place to stay that makes you feel at home even when you are far away from your country. We accommodate our students in carefully selected Chilean homestays.

You will always have your own room (single room) and access to the common areas of the house or apartment. Double rooms are also available upon request for couples or friends traveling together.You can choose between receiving half-board (breakfast and dinner) or self-catering (shared use of the kitchen). We make it our priority to try to locate your "Chilean home" close to the school or easily accessible by public transportation.

In particular, Chile’s capital Santiago has a good infrastructure. Internet access (WIFI) is part of the standard equipment of 100% of our homestays. You can also use the free Internet access at your language school.

How are students assigned to the right language course?
Before starting a language course, new language students take a placement test. This test has either to be submitted by email beforehand or taken on the first day of school before the course starts. Based on this test, students are evaluated regarding their language skills and are assigned to the right group. In case a student wishes to take private lessons, the test helps the Spanish school determine the suitable course material.

Where are the other language students from?
The language students represent a diverse range of nationalities, typically originating from Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the USA, Canada and Brazil. Every now and then the courses are attended by students of other nationalities, primarily Asians and French.
