How to Break The Language Barrier
As travelers, I think we can all agree when traveling in a foreign country, nothing can ruin your experience more than being stuck in a situation where you can’t understand a word that people are saying (or yelling) at you. Don’t worry, we’ve all been there before. Well, here is a solution to that problem- at least in Spanish speaking countries. Expanish makes it a priority to offer many different types of classes with many different types of classroom settings. For instance, they offer beginner level Spanish courses, DELE (Diploma de Español Lengua Extranjera) preparation courses, intensive cultural, medical, business Spanish courses and many more. Within those courses, they also offer the options of being taught in group or individual classroom settings- so many to choose from! So to make this easier, I am going to hash out all of the differences and benefits of each course style to help find the one that fits you.
Are you a person that likes individual attention?
If you are, then the one to one classes are perfect for you. Not only will you be able to make your own goals, intensity level, and schedule, but you will be able to learn at your own pace. without any unnecessary competition in the classroom with other students. With personal attention like this, you are for sure to have the confidence to use your Spanish in real-life situations.
Are you a person that enjoys personal interactions and meeting new people?
If you said yes to this question, then group classes are the ones for you. Having no more than 12 students in a group class, the classroom atmosphere is always lively, but never overbearing. With usually 4 to 8 per class, you are always interacting with other students and making friendships along the way. No wonder students from all over the world come to Expanish.
Did you say “Yes” to both of the past questions?
If both of those descriptions seemed like learning atmospheres that you would enjoy, then you are in luck! Expanish offers classes that are both individually and group taught, which of course gives you the best of both worlds. Where you can learn alongside your friends in an exciting group setting, you also receive private lessons where you can ask questions.
Do you need Spanish classes on a specific topic?
It is obvious that whether you are in Argentina for business or pleasure, knowing the language helps immensely and Expanish offers courses for that as well. Medical, Business and DELE preparation courses are offered to assist students to learn specific vocabulary on a certain topic
Do you only need one class to learn the local vocabulary?
The “Ultimate Crash Course” that Expanish offers help students learn the vocabulary and phrases of Argentina. Each class has a new topic of vocabulary such as shopping, food and drink or transportation where you are finally able to give your brain a rest from learning Spanish grammar. These fun and interactive courses are only 2 hours long but really help get a grasp of the Porteño culture that we all know and love.
