Course Overview


Spanish Levels 1&2 is a Beginners Spanish course for students who have never studied the Spanish language before. This is an intensive Spanish course allowing you to take two Spanish levels in 10 weeks and progress more quickly. If you’re unsure of your level, then take our language test here, or check our level chart.


Our Spanish language classes take place at our school in Covent Garden with a qualified, experienced teacher and fellow students. Weekend language classes at IH London are dynamic and interactive as the emphasis is on spoken communication, which is achieved through lots of group work and role-plays. At the same time, there is systematic work on grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, so that you can improve on all aspects of the language. Your teacher speaks in the target language throughout, so that you can refine your comprehension and listening skills.
