Speak Spanish™ – Spanish Language Institute was created in 2009 as a response to the lack of a dedicated Spanish language institute in the city of Christchurch which is capable of providing Spanish language tuition across all age groups and levels.
We specialise in only one thing and we do it well – teaching Spanish. All abilities are present in our courses; grammar, vocabulary, listening, writing with the main focus being communication and speaking. Students use Spanish in class in relevant contexts from the very first class.
Teaching like any other profession takes years of study. Speak Spanish differs from other institutes in that we use qualified teachers. We use the communicative approach so activities in class are aimed to produce meaningful and real communication, at all levels. There is more emphasis on skills than systems and our lessons are learner-centred.
Our approach to learning Spanish is based on the immersion philosophy, which involves learning to converse and communicate in a natural setting. You will practice and use Spanish as you would in real life.
We take Spanish language learning seriously and we believe we provide the most professional tuition at all levels. We know how to teach and don’t forget English is our second language, so we know what it's like from a learners perspective.
We offer different courses for adults, there is an option for everybody depending on your availability and goals.Children courses
Our children courses are for children (and also families) from 2 to teenage years.
