The SMS Spanish Experience’s teaching method is based on an action-oriented approach. We do not want you to despair of classes, that is too theoretical and only grammar oriented. Our aim is to make you listen, understand and – the most important – to make you talk Spanish. That is why our methodology has a communicative conception of language and the belief, that learning is constructive and meaningful. You learn by inferring, deducing and relating forms and meanings, using and doing things with the new language. So, in our Spanish school, you will not only learn in an academic way, but you will immerse into the Spanish language and its culture. The way to achieve this will depend on the students’ tastes and style of learning. As SMS Spanish Experience does not follow a rigid methodology, we can provide you with many different and exciting options to learn Spanish. Independently of which one you choose, you will always be able to enjoy our high-quality standards in education. First, our teachers will offer you alternatives and suggestions, always adapting the content to the student’s needs and not simply following a fixed teaching plan as many schools do. Second, the classes will be complemented by a comprehensive school activities program, that is always related to the learned content and to our focus on making you learn the language in a natural surrounding. Third, we will comfort you with a friendly and vibrant atmosphere at our school. Furthermore, we believe in the importance of diversity and quality of the teaching materials used. Therefore the classes will be held with the support of interactive whiteboards, adequate school books and Spanish learning materials created by our teachers. Not to be forgotten is the fact that all our teaching staff are native Spanish as well as highly educated and experienced in their profession.
