Latino population of the United States in 2060

Spanish is the mother tongue of almost 500 million people around the globe, which equates to approximately six percent of the world’s population. As a result, it is officially recognized as the second most commonly spoken language, when measured by native speakers, ranking ahead of English

Spanish has official language status in 20 different countries and more than 550 million people speak Spanish with at least some degree of competence. In addition, it is the most popular second language choice for people in the United States and is spoken as either a first or second language by 15 percent of all residents in the European Union.

Analysts are estimating that the Latino population of the United States will reach close to 130 million by the year 2060. It is predicted that this will make the U.S. the largest Spanish speaking country in the world, overtaking Mexico in the process and further increasing the language’s global standing

Why is it important to learn Spanish?

In today’s global marketplace, knowledge of a second language can be an extremely valuable asset to employers and employees alike. Modern businesses are always keen to have staff members who can help them with international trade and the Spanish language is especially valuable in the current climate. It is easy to learn as its phonemes are simple and plain. Spanish influence in different and diverse fields such as cuisine, music, art, cinema, science contributes to the students with an extra enrichment and fulfilment of their lives. A recent report published by the British Council ranked Spanish as the most important second language for British citizens to learn, placing it ahead of French, Arabic and Mandarin.

Why DELE or SIELE?

Because not only is it important to be able to speak a language but also show the world what you know and prove it!!.
We know that the sum of personal riches contributes to the national wealth but that should not confine ourselves just to the world around us. There is a wonderful universe to explore, and we can play a role in this multicultural society if we have the necessary tools; among them, being able to communicate in another language; this multiplies exponentially your prospects of success.

Learn Spanish with native teachers participating

in real conversations

El método "learning by doing"

Practical approach

Aiming to encourage the usage of Spanish hence broadening the students’ communicative skills, our programmes are organised into small groups or individual sessions. They are sorted in mainly two categories; academic purposes or everyday Spanish. That is why the students are also grouped according to their objectives and lingüistic levels. Our native teachers first focus on building the students’ confidence by providing the tools needed to produce a grammatically correct speech as new vocabulary is added in each lesson. Although the classes are delivered in Spanish all our teachers can also speak fluent English so explanations in English are possible if required. Bearing in mind that learning a second language is a long term project which directly influences positions of employment, academic performance or leisure opportunities, we strongly believe that motivation, encouragement and implementing role play in real situations are the pillars of every class plan. “Learning by doing” has always been the motto of this school so we teach through art, cooking, music and games whenever possible.
We believe that learning Spanish has multiple advantages, such as more possibilities to empathise with others, have the opportunity to comprehend a different culture, have access to more information and to know it first-hand and increase our mental speed among others. This makes us innovate and constantly motivate our students to reach the valuable pleasure of speaking a foreign language.

Outstandings

One to one classes:

The One-to-One classes are the perfect choice if you have individual needs that you do not feel will be met in a group setting, or if you simply wish to have more individualised attention, so as to learn faster. The private lessons normally take place in the mornings or afternoons, Monday to Friday, at a time agreed with the student, in our school in Madrid or by videoconference. You can concentrate on whatever areas of language you wish in your private lessons. The course will be designed to meet your particular needs and interests and will be perfectly tailored to your particular level

Camps:

Our program is addressed to international students who desire to learn Spanish in an intensive and natural way while enjoying extracurricular activities which enhance their academic studies. In addition to the intensive Spanish morning courses is the option to partake in cultural programmes in the afternoon. This programme provides students the opportunity to practise Spanish in a culturally authentic, recreational environment.

Enrollment is open

Enjoyable experience of learning and growth  

The academy is an active member of the community and involves all its students in its cultural and social initiatives. We know who our students are, we know their families, and we are aware of their necessities and individual values. We contemplate teaching as the opportunity to contribute to the “individual training” in the wider sense of its conception.

Academic year/term

Our programme is addressed to international students who desire to learn Spanish in an intensive and natural way while spending a term or whole academic year. In addition to the intensive Spanish morning exposure is the option to partake in extracurricular activities in the afternoon. Staying with our selected families not only will enhance the experience but also will provide the care and wellbeing so that the students feel safe and loved and their parents relaxed to know their children are in good hands. This programme provides students the opportunity to practise Spanish in a culturally authentic environment.

Summer camps

Our young learner programme is quite complete. Students between 8 and 16 stay with host families (full board included) or in residential accommodation supervised by a group leader. There are 14 sessions a week besides diverse activities such as sports, field trips, cinema and workshops. Excursions are always accompanied and chaperoned by our assistants. The recreational environment allows motivating learning for the students and guarantees the most enjoyable experience ever.

We believe that our programmes are perfect for young international learners who seek an enriching and fulfilling experience learning a language abroad in an entirely comprehensive programme.
