Can I change my level if, after a while, I feel that my course is too easy or difficult for me?
Yes, it’s possible (if there are places available).
Our teachers will also recommend that a student change levels if they think that the student would benefit more from being in a different level class. In every case, the student can decide.
How many levels of Spanish are there?
There are six levels according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), an international standard for describing language ability: Complete Beginner (A1), Beginner+ (A2), Intermediate (B1), Upper Intermediate (B2), Advanced (C1), and Proficient (C2).
After taking a placement test, you’ll be able to join the group best suited to your language knowledge. Then you can progress through the levels.
How are Spanish levels organised at Maus School?
Levels are organised according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR): A (Beginner), B (Intermediate) and C (Advanced).
This system of measuring language proficiency is used throughout the world by international organisations, most Spanish language schools, and the Instituto Cervantes.
Our Spanish courses and class materials are all organised according to this international system.
How will I progress in Spanish?
You’ll develop all your language skills equally: writing, listening and written comprehension, oral expression and conversation, and grammar.
We work in a way that maximises your learning potential without causing you stress.
The classes are very practical, and you’ll see the progress you’re making straightaway.
You’ll develop a close relationship with your teachers. They’ll make sure no one is left behind in class, and they’ll give out routine tests to track your progress.
