How we Teach Spanish
What is LIFE™?
Our academic staff has developed a teaching methodology that is unique for Babylon Idiomas called: LIFE™ = Language Immersion For Everyone.
LIFE™ stands for learning a new language in a natural, practical and fast way:
- Natural because you learn the language as you learned your mother tongue, by using your intuition and exploring the meaning of words and expressions.
- Practical because you can use what you have learned from the first day in everyday situations.
- Fast because our methodology and full language immersion help you to truly cement the new language which allows you to build your new language skills faster.
You can't really learn a language properly if you don't get the chance to speak or the attention from the Spanish teacher to correct you.
That is why all the Spanish classes at Babylon Idiomas in Spain have a maximum of ten students. Please note that in our Latin American schools, the maximum is six students.
Your daily Spanish Intensive Course is split into two parts of two class hours with a break in between.
A mixture of grammar, conversational skills, oral and written comprehension as well as writing are taught. The conversation element will become more important as you advance in the course.
If you follow the Super-Intensive course, then the third part of your day will be 1 extra hour of conversation classe and 1 extra hour of culture class.
Please review other courses for their specific setup.
In Spain, there is a € 20 fee for text books per level which needs to be paid at the school. On the day of your arrival, you'll receive a binder with practical information about your course and your destination.
We always try to mix nationalities as much as we can and at the same time keep the age differences as small as we can. This way, you are more likely to speak Spanish with each other and share similar interests.
Homework is entirely optional but as you know you'll make better progress if you prepare for your class every day. The workload is normally less than 30 minutes per day.
