Argentina I.L.E.E. Spanish Schools count on own material, designed that the student enters progressive understanding of the Spanish grammar and its uses in the speech. From the first classes the student will already count on correct grammar knowledge to present himself, to request and to give information, to make purchases, reservations, etc.
In the classes, grammar contents are introduced and put into practice through listening comprehension and role plays as well as written exercises. Thus, starting off with the correct use of the language, the student will be able to actively participate speaking and listening outside the school. We consider that the understanding of the grammar is an essential tool, that enables the student to express himself correctly, according to his level.
Although from the first levels informative material is used for the student to gain a progressive understanding of the cultural context, it is from the intermediate level I that journalistic or historical texts, as well as those concerning the way of life in our country, are included as a daily activity. This way the vocabulary is extended, linguistic interchanges between the students are generated and cultural and historical contents are deepened. Also, the cultural activities suggested by the school are offered with the purpose of assisting the student to acquire an integral understanding of the Argentine social cultural development.
In levels intermediate III and advanced I and II, the students participate in more formal communicative situations, in which, as it is done when studying history and literature, they have interviews, take notes during lectures, expose a subject to their classmates, work with audio and video material of different degrees of complexity and of thematic diversity. The material used for advanced levels is selected from what is of current use for a native Argentinian with a university degree or superior education.
Argentina I.L.E.E. Spanish Schools offer specific programs for advanced levels, that integrate history, art and literature; programs specially composed for a deep and successful immersion in the Argentine culture. Ask for our Medicine Spanish Program.
