We offer Spanish courses in mini groups (maximum 5 students), individual classes or a combination of mini groups and individual classes.
All our courses are based on interactive teaching methods, in which the linguistic handling of everyday situations and the systematic learning of the grammar are combined. Role plays, discussions and other innovative communication techniques are a firm component in the lessons of our teachers.
We use the textbook Ven published by Difusión, which follows the guidelines of the European reference framework and the "Instituto Cervantes". In addition, the Latin American culture is included, in order to make you familiar with the language peculiarities and customs beyond the Atlantic.
Our courses are provided in agreement with "the common European reference framework" (A1-C2) in 6 levels. If after completion of the classification test no class should exist for your level at that moment (minimum 3 students with 20 lessons per week), you will receive "twin classes" (15 lessons per week) or "individual lessons" (10 lessons per week).
Common European Framework
The European Reference Framework distinguishes 6 different levels from the basic knowledge (A1) to the almost perfect domain of the language (C2). It refers to the 4 classic aspects of the language that are grammar, listening and reading comprehension and written language.
The European Reference Framework has been developed to provide more transparency in language learning processes and to facilitate reciprocal recognition of linguistic certificates of different countries.
CHE Buenos Aires offers 6 levels according to the recognized common references of the European market for language teaching. We always strive to improve both oral and written linguistic knowledge and also bring the student closer to the culture and the Argentine way of life with a rich teaching in impressions. We guide the teaching of the language through the use of everyday situations.
VEN - Published by Difusion
CHE Buenos Aires uses the VEN textbook from Editorial Difusion. Ven is a method for teenagers and adults. Its methodological approach is supported by extensive experience in the classroom: thousands of students around the world have learned Spanish with Ven for more than 10 years. Nuevo Ven retains the methodological clarity and ease of use of Ven while applying the recommendations and suggestions of the Common European Framework of Reference.
Its contents follow the guidelines of the Curriculum Plan of the Cervantes Institute.
