At VSC each course focuses on developing your oral communication skills. Each level is composed of specific topics to guarantee that you have time to process and retain the information. Our classes are dynamic and boredom is not an option! Every class has varied activities to keep you engaged and motivated.
Class Size: Small groups offer the perfect environment for learning. You can learn and practice through fun activities in groups and pairs, and also receive personalized attention from the instructor. Learn with and from others in the comfortable environment of a small group. With a maximum of eight students per class and an average of six you receive top quality one-on-one and small-group instruction.
Curriculum: Our curriculum, materials and textbooks follow the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). We offer four main levels, each one divided into two or three well-paced sub-levels. Our courses cover levels A1 and A2 (Basic user), and B1 and B2 (Independent user) of the CEFR. Higher levels may be offered if there is enough interest.
Upon completion of levels A1 and A2, you will be able to communicate comfortably in everyday situations, talk about the present, past and future and engage in conversations. You will have acquired all the tools necessary for traveling, meeting new people and feeling comfortable when speaking in Spanish.

At VCS we believe that learning continues outside the classroom and we are committed to helping to do that. That is why we have extra classes for you to take and some of them are free. Currently we offer the Conversation Café and Spanish Through Music classes.
The Spanish Café is open to everyone and it provides an opportunity to meet new people and practice in a fun and relaxed environment. Come for a cup of coffee and practice your Spanish. This class is free for those enrolled in any course.
Spanish through music: This class takes you to different parts of the Spanish world through the sounds of music. The aim of this course is to help you improve pronunciation, intonation and vocabulary and learn about aspects of the Spanish culture like the singers and their backgrounds.
