Course description

The General Intensive course is our most popular course. Designed for students who want to maximize their language learning practice during their stay. Two lessons in grammar skills and 2 lessons focused on communication skills. These lessons provide the opportunity to learn the local culture and customs.
The classes stress the use of language in everyday situations. In 2 lessons each day, students will work on grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary, while in the other 2 lessons, they will focus on reading, writing, speaking and listening. Textbooks and a variety of other materials are used in instruction, including role-playing, newspapers, magazines and other materials. Topics include: fluency practice, media studies, film and theater, local culture, current events, politics, and research using the internet. Intermediate and advanced students also have the option of studying in the test-preparation and business classes.
After classes there are conversation and video lessons and one-to-one tuition weekly, all included in the price. Every Friday students are invited to go out with other groups and teachers before lunchtime.

"Very nice school with helpful staff"

Blake Lee-Harwood, student from UK

The school is well located near the centre of Cordoba in a large building with good sized class rooms. I was met and introduced to the school by helpful staff (who knew I was coming!) and I had two teachers - both of whom were excellent. There were no other students so all my classes were 1-2-1 which was good value for the fee although quite exhausting as a student. The teaching was high quality and the staff were very nice and clearly made an effort. i would certainly recommend this school - it is well run, professional and the staff are cheerful, enthusiastic and know what they are doing.

"Welcoming, one-to-one, efficient."

Michael, student from Afghanistan

The school is well-situated and attractive (flowers, clean, bright).
The teachers were agreeable, patient, organised.
I expected to be in a group but benefited from one-to-one classes (in the absence of other students during this holiday period). This permitted me to recover a B1 level in one week, after several years without exposure to Spanish, which was an unexpected bonus.
There is nothing not to like.
The internet site might be improved.

"Good instructors, beautiful location"

Laurel Steele, student from USA

The school was very helpful. The lessons were always well prepared. They had afternoon activities almost every day. Only the room where I stayed was less than expected -- I had no window, so no air circulation and I ended up buying a fan which succeeded in merely stirring the heat. The school, however, had AC and was always pleasant!

"Cordoba is an absolutely enchanting city, the school was very professional and the instructors were delightful."

Dianna Sallone, student from USA

My homestay was perfect. My room was nicely located in a charming home and my hosts were very accommodating. I really liked the staff at Academia Hispanica. I learned a lot and they were very patient, with lots of individual attention. The staff at the school went out of their way to make the students feel at home and to show us all that Cordoba has to offer. Cordoba itself is just exquisite--a truly enchanting city. I couldn't have been happier and, overall, my trip to Cordoba was a fantastic experience.
