FAQ

  • Q. What are the lessons like?
  • A. Very interactive and collaborative. In addition to individual work, there will also be many games and fun exercises that will require you to work in pairs or as a group. In a supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere you will be encouraged to speak in Spanish from the very beginning. Although you will learn the four skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing), we tend to leave the last two for homework so that you can make the most of the lessons. 

 

  • Q. What level should I enrol in?
  • A. If you’re a complete beginner in Spanish or if you have very little knowledge of the language, you should enrol in an Inicial 1 course. Otherwise, please take our online tests under http://www.spanishhouselondon.com/our-courses/test-your-level/. These tests give you an accurate recommendation of the most suitable level for you, as well as a good idea of the contents covered in each course. However, if you want to have some extra certainty, you can contact us to book a free level assessment test at our premises or over the phone.

 

  • Q. Can I have a certificate to acknowledge that I have completed a course?
  • A. Yes. We can issue an attendance certificate on completion of your course. If you also need to certify your level of Spanish for official purposes, we can prepare you to sit an official exam.

 

  • Q. I am going to miss a few lessons of my course. How do I know what material I’ll be missing?
  • A. You will have access to our free online platform, where you’ll be able to see what your teacher has covered in each lesson and the homework for the week. You also have the ability to contact your teacher and fellow students through this platform to ask any questions. ​If you need some extra help, we have a catch-up system through which you will be able to book a 1-to-1 lesson to recap the contents you have missed. This has a cost of £12 for 30 minutes, which is a discounted price over a normal 1-to-1 lesson, and is only available for students enrolled in a course. We usually recommend to book a 30-minute session per lesson missed but you can book a longer one if you wish. Please follow this link to book your session. Write your availability to hold the session, as well as the lesson you have missed: http://www.spanishhouselondon.com/book-your-course/#!/30-minutes-1-to-1-catch-up-lesson/p/53856039/category=14179178. Change the quantity at checkout if you wish to have a session longer than 30 minutes.

 

  • Q. Do I have to buy a book?
  • A. Yes. Our lessons are based not only on a textbook, but we also combine it with extra activities, games, speaking exercises, videos, etc. However, you will need the specific book for your course to have a structure in the learning process and to be able to follow the contents of your course. If you want your teacher to bring a book for you on the first day of your course, please add it to your cart when you book your course. The book “Aula Internacional 1” covers the contents of courses Inicial 1, 2 and 3; “Aula Internacional 2” covers the contents of courses Continuación 1, 2 and 3; “Aula Internacional 3” covers courses Intermedio 1, 2, 3 and 4; “Aula Internacional 4” covers courses Avanzado 1, 2 and 3; and “Aula Internacional 5” covers courses Superior 1, 2 and 3.

 

  • Q. Can I cancel or rearrange a 1-to-1 lesson?
  • A. Yes, you can cancel or rearrange private lessons (1-to-1 or Catch-ups) at no extra cost, as long as you give us at least 24 hours notice. Cancellations or rearrangements made within less than 24 hours will be charged.
