In depth: Our Spanish Courses for Business in Manchester

1:1 and Group Spanish Courses in Manchester

Our Spanish Courses in Manchester can be offered either on a 1:1 or group basis. Although group sessions prove to be good value, most of our clients choose to run 1:1 courses, so as to allow for quicker progress. Group sessions should be capped at a maximum of 6 candidates, and will require thorough planning as well as the commitment of all the participants involved. A 1:1 Spanish Course in Manchester will mean that you can have your individual needs, weaknesses and strengths catered for, so that quick progress can be made.

Spanish Course Management

All of SIMON & SIMON’s Spanish Language Courses are overseen by highly experienced, multi-lingual Account Managers. Before the start of your Spanish Course in Manchester you will be equipped with a profile on your trainer, materials for your course and a Course Plan. You will then also be sent a Progress Report for every 40 hours of completed training.

Spanish Course Locations & Schedules

SIMON & SIMON have experience running Spanish Language Courses in numerous locations around the world. Thanks to our global network of language trainers your Spanish language course can be arranged in major cities across the UK, Europe and even further afield. Most of our clients choose to arrange their Spanish lessons for within their offices, so as to minimise travel, but we can also run Spanish lessons in your own home. We also run residential full-time Spanish Language Courses in a variety of locations, which our office will be happy to inform you of.

Manchester Spanish Course Schedules

Our Spanish Courses in Manchester are run throughout the year, Monday – Friday, from 8am to 6pm. Many of our students will choose to attend more than one weekly session, if work commitments allow so, but most of our students take part in at least one 90-minute session per week. We can also accommodate weekend Spanish Courses on request. Intensive courses are also available, and can be run on a client’s premises or in residential centres across the UK or abroad. Intensive courses consist of 6 hours of language learning a day, from Monday through Friday.

Spanish Course Content

Whatever your previous experience or future goals, your Spanish Course will be customised for you. Before the start of your course we will make a comprehensive assessment on your level of language ability, and discuss in detail what you would like to focus on. You may simply want to develop a basic level of survival Spanish, or possibly you are slightly more proficient and wish to develop language skills for use in business situations. Whatever your requirements and goals, our highly experienced Spanish language trainers will tailor your Spanish Course so that your goals can be quickly met.

Spanish Language Examination Courses

Here at SIMON & SIMON, we can also offer assistance with the preparation for language examinations, whether of a business nature or otherwise. We are very proud of our students’ 95% pass rate for such examinations. We believe this figure to be a true demonstration of the importance of working with language teachers whose experience is above average. SIMON & SIMON can also take care of the registration and administration of such examinations, as well as organising the issuing of results certificates.

About Spanish

Spanish is a Romance language in the Ibero-Romance group that evolved from several languages and dialects in the central-north of Iberia during the 9th century and gradually spread with the expansion of the Kingdom of Castile into central and southern Iberia during the later Medieval period. In 1999, there were 358 million people speaking Spanish as a native language and a total of 417 million speakers worldwide. As of 2010 these figures are up to 400 and 500 million people respectively. Spanish is the second most natively spoken language in the world, after Mandarin Chinese. Mexico contains the largest population of Spanish speakers. Spanish is one of the six official languages of the United Nations.

About Manchester

Manchester is a city and metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester, England. In 2009, its population was estimated to be 483,800, making it the seventh-most populous local authority district in England.

Manchester lies within one of the UK’s largest metropolitan areas; the metropolitan county of Greater Manchester had an estimated population of 2,600,100, the Greater Manchester Urban Area a population of 2,240,230, and the Larger Urban Zone around Manchester, the second-most-populous in the UK, had an estimated population in the 2004 Urban Audit of 2,539,100. The demonym of Manchester is Mancunian.

Manchester is situated in the south-central part of North West England, fringed by the Cheshire Plain to the south and the Pennines to the north and east. The recorded history of Manchester began with the civilian vicus associated with the Roman fort of Mamucium, which was established c. CE 79 on a sandstone bluff near the confluence of the rivers Medlock and Irwell. Historically, most of the city was a part of Lancashire, although areas south of the River Mersey were in Cheshire.

Throughout the Middle Ages Manchester remained a manorial township, but began expanding “at an astonishing rate” around the turn of the 19th century as part of a process of unplanned urbanisation brought on by a boom in textile manufacture during the Industrial Revolution.

Manchester is the second highest ranked city in Britain behind London as ranked by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network in 2014 as a beta world city. It was the site of the very first atom being split, and the Manchester Liverpool Road station was the first inter-city railway station in the world. It is the third most visited city in the United Kingdom behind London and Edinburgh with a diverse culture and a fascinating history that draws foreigners to come see it.

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 in Manchester 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.
