Tailored programmes

Spanish for families with children

Flexible schedules according to need.
Price on demand.

Throughout our trajectory, we have received a large number of families with small children in our facilities.
For them we have a special programme that allows them to have fun and learn with a variety of didactic and pedagogical games.

The children learn intuitively and effortlessly, so you can see great progress in their level of understanding and expression of the language.

While young children study with specialised teachers in their programme, parents can join the adult programmes and courses.

From a certain age, a joint family programme can be created for those who wish to stay together in the classroom.

Courses for specific purposes

Flexible schedules according to need.
Price on demand.

In addition to general Spanish, our teachers develop personalised programmes.

Depending on the participant’s objectives, we design tailor-made content to address the topics of interest to him or her.

Spanish-American literature, architecture, politics, ancient medicine, Spanish for business, climate change, conferences are, among many other topics, a few examples of what our team has developed for your students.

Which methodology?

"Whether you choose a standard, intensive, experiential or DELE exam preparation course, there is always a common goal: to acquire the tools to speak and communicate".

Centro Catalina

When we talk about methodology, we are referring to how a language is taught.

At Centro Catalina we have several methodologies. The most important thing is that they are all adapted to the communicative needs of our participants.

Depending on your needs, the course will contain more or less focus on its form, i.e. grammar, writing and spelling. Although one cannot be separated from the other, it is not the same to study to travel in South America as it is to prepare for an exam at the Instituto Cervantes. 

Each course has a variation in its focus, so you can choose the one that best suits your objectives. If you need Spanish for very specific purposes, we can also design a tailor-made programme for you to achieve your goals. 

Our commitment is that at the end of your classes you will have fulfilled the objective of your course and that you will feel confident in speaking Spanish.
