Spanish Language Profile

Spanish is one of the European Romance languages, and originally comes from a region of Spain called Castile (which is why it is also known as Castillian). It was first recorded officially in the 9th century and has spread across the entire world over the centuries. It is one of the six official languages of the United Nations and is one of the official languages of the European Union among many other international organisations.

As the first language in Spain and a large portion of the Americas, Spanish is a truly global language and is considered a language of business in the following markets:

  • Andorra
  • Argentina
  • Belize
  • Bolivia
  • Chile
  • Colombia
  • Costa Rica

1:1 and Group Spanish Courses

We provide Spanish language courses on a 1 to 1 basis, or in groups for teams within businesses or even just a few individuals who wish to save money.

Groups can be effective in peer-to-peer learning and is also highly cost effective. However, it does mean the teacher’s attention is diluted, and it does require some commitment from all learners to attend at the same time. This is why we strongly advise no groups larger than 6 people.

However, what we most strongly recommend is 1 to 1 Spanish language courses. This naturally results in faster progression and greater results achieved for the time and money spent. Your course is not only then tailored directly to you, but your teacher can also adjust and focus on your particular areas of weakness.

You will be assigned an Account Manager, all of whom are bilingual, to assist you in choosing the best type of course for your requirements and to help find you the best teacher. They will also provide you with all the materials you require, any reports for HR professionals and all the personal administration that needs doing to keep your course running smoothly.

Spanish Course Locations & Schedules

Our Spanish courses are designed to work around your schedule. Thanks to our extensive network of native-speaker teachers, we are able to conduct courses in offices throughout the UK and in most major cities around the world. So wherever your business is based, we will be able to come to you and provide professional courses in your workplace.

Our teachers can also come to your home, if that is more convenient, or you can have your Spanish language course conducted in our facilities or online via Skype.

Our teachers are available all year round, and typically work Monday – Friday from 8am – 6pm. Weekends can also be negotiated if that works better for you.

Typically, our students take at least 1 90 minute session a week. Depending on personal schedules, many take more than this. Our most intensive courses run for a 30 hour week, with 6 hours every day, Monday – Friday.

Spanish Course Content

Before commencing your language training, you will receive a comprehensive course plan as well as a teacher profile. Following the completion of each 40 hour block, we provide an extensive progress report to employers as part of our commitment to providing clear and measurable feedback. Businesses sponsoring employee training can also contact SIMON & SIMON at any time to discuss progress, course details and any queries they may have with regards to the course.

The content is very much driven by what you require. Our Account Manager will have had a detailed discussion with you before anything is set, so that the Spanish language course you embark on is truly tailored to your requirements. Obviously, in a group training session, that becomes slightly more difficult to achieve.

We can help you learn Spanish for a full range of purposes – from business contexts such as sales and finance and marketing, to cultural understandings and slang use.

If you are seeking qualifications, we are also very capable of assisting you through Spanish language examinations. Our students achieve a 95% pass rate – something we attribute to our experienced teachers and their modern teaching methods.

We will assist with registration, administration and certification in your examination process.

Assess Your Spanish Level

The table below is based on recognised language levels used by various academic institutions across the European Union. A highly motivated student attending weekly sessions with their Spanish language trainer can expect to move from one level to another after 50 hours providing they also commit to a similar number of hours of self-study.

Of course, some people find learning languages easier than others, and some students will have more opportunities to practise Spanish in the course of their work and leisure, so these factors also need to be considered when trying to assess how long it will take to move from one level to another.
