Private Immersion Program
The Private Immersion Program is the most flexible program. It features daily one-on-one instruction. Most students choose to study Monday though Friday, however the Private Immersion Program also allows students to design their own itinerary; including weekends. Students also may choose to study the days that best meet their schedule. Weekend and daily Private Immersion Program courses are offered throughout the year.
A program that includes four hours of core curriculum followed by two hours of afternoon activities is recommended. However, it is the student who ultimately decides how the day is structured and what is studied. Some students may prefer a more rigid program of exercises and drills while others elect to focus strictly on conversation.
A specialized academic agenda incorporating terminology specific to a field of interest can also be implemented. Individual instruction means students may choose to go as rapidly or slowly as they desire.
With the individual attention provided by a private class, this means faster earning for the student. These classes can be adapted to fit the student’s individual needs, such as class-times and skill level.
Spanish Groups Programs
At Centro Mexicano we welcome teachers and other who are interested in coming to Centro Mexicano and bring a group with them. It could be a group of children, students in high school, college, teachers, or professional adults representing a variety of disciplines.
We plan all the activities with the group coordinator and we also adjust the fees for the group to give a discount to the participants and the coordinator. There are special activities in addition to the basic hours of Spanish language class.
Small groups immersion Program for Adults
The Small Group Immersion Program is the most popular program because of its dynamics and economics. The main objective of the Small Group Immersion Program is to develop verbal communication and critical listening skills.
A variety of hands-on and highly interactive methods are used to cultivate motivation, self-confidence and enjoyment. Success is measured by the student’s ability to complete the communication loop in Spanish.
Class instruction is limited to a maximum of eight students. The small group size assures individual participation and allows for personal attention from the instructor.
Classes meet Monday through Friday throughout the year.
Students in the Small Group Immersion Program can study for as short a time as a single week or take courses for 5 and 10 weeks at discount rates. The Centro Mexicano is flexible in accommodating your busy schedule.
Class schedules are flexible. We offer diverse programs. Students may also choose to supplement their group classes with additional private lessons.
Our Spanish classes usually consist of 3 to 8 students. This intimate class size helps us tailor our programs to your specific needs and to adapt our teaching methodology to your learning style.
You will be placed in classes to your Spanish proficiency level, which is determined by a written test and oral evaluation exam before starting your course. Your level will be confirmed by your instructor based on your performance during the class.
Throughout your course your progress will be assessed daily by your teacher and our Academic Director. Every day instructors hand in a progress report for each student in the class. This information helps our Academic director determine and decide the appropriate steps for reaching his/her language goals.
