PILS - Spanish School at the Beach:
Pichilemu Institute of Language Studies (PILS) is a unique Spanish language school offering intensive and non-intensive Spanish courses in Chile's surfing capital, Pichilemu to students from around the world. In addition, we offer study abroad semester programs and college credit programs for US and international college & university students. Pichilemu is located on the rural coast of Central Chile and approximately 3.5 hours by bus from the capital, Santiago which has an international airport.
Our Spanish Courses / Programs include:
Group Spanish Classes:
Group classes are a great way to learn. At PILS even our small group classes are customized. With a maximum of 6 students per class you will always have the teacher's attention and the freedom to ask questions. Group classes are able to do more role-play activities and competitions. We offer group Spanish classes all year round. Group class students must be at a similar level of Spanish. It is also possible to combine group Spanish classes with private lessons.
Group classes are based on availability. Single students who register for group classes will be given an equitable amount of private classes if no suitable partners are available. However, solo travelers can be assured that we'll do our best to find appropriate group partners. During our high season November-April more frequent group classes run starting every Monday.

US college students can design their own college credit program. Choose from 9 different undergraduate Spanish classes and take between 3 and 15 credits. These classes are generally a mix of small group and private with a minimum study time depending on how many courses you want to take. All course work will be revised and approved by the staff at Brookhaven College in Texas.
