During the classes, all linguistic skills are worked on (oral and reading comprehension and oral and written expression). In addition to grammatical content, cultural and historical aspects of Spanish culture are also taught to achieve better linguistic immersion in our country. Apart from the classes, activities are carried out outside the classroom so that students can test their knowledge in real situations.

The evaluation of the students is carried out continuously through the performance of different activities and tests. In addition, the teacher performs a personal and private track through our platform.
