Lacunza International House, San Sebastian:
Located in beautiful San Sebastian on the Northern Coast of Spain, Lacunza IH San Sebastian offers a wide range of Spanish courses and camps for all ages and levels. We are members of the world wide organisation International House which has been dedicated improving the teaching of languages since 1953. We offer intensive Spanish, business Spanish, DELE exam preparation, training for Spanish teachers and more. Small study groups of less than 12 students are taught by native speakers to ensure a lesson plan that caters to the individual.
- Intensive Spanish:
The general courses have been specifically designed to develop your ability to effectively communicate in Spanish. These intensive courses are adapted to your prior Spanish level and are based on everyday contexts and experiences in order to develop your knowledge from the perspective of real-life encounters. All of our courses are focused on the practical use of the language and immersing yourself in the Spanish way of thinking.
To optimize your time, we maintain small study groups with a maximum of 12 students per teacher. The core course, Intensive 20, consists of two 90 minute group classes taught 5 times per week for a total of 15 hours per week. While this is an excellent way to learn Spanish, if you wish to accelerate your learning, we have individual sessions available to complement your group lessons. The individual lessons are an excellent way to focus on specific topics and get one-on-one lessons catered to your learning needs. This personalised lesson structure allows students of all disciplines and backgrounds to advance rapidly and efficiently. In no time you'll be understanding and communicating with your new Spanish neighbours!
- DELE Preparation:
If you require a certificate that demonstrates your level of Spanish, this is the course for you. Obtaining this diploma will eliminate any doubt employers might have about your level of Spanish. The D.E.L.E. (Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera) is recognized worldwide.
DELE is a 4 week course designed to prepare you for one of the 3 levels of the Instituto Cervantes [Inicial (B1: intermediate I), Medio (B2 Intermediate II), Superior (Proficiency)]. We also accept students who require shorter stays depending on their previous knowledge of the language.
