Spanish classes

Our Spanish classes are given in small groups (maximum 10-12 people), in large, bright, air-conditioned and pleasant classrooms where students will work in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. They usually consist of 4 or 6 lessons per day, each lasting 45 minutes, from Monday to Friday, from 09:30 to 13.00 or 15:00 hours, depending on whether it is an intensive or super-intensive course, with different teachers in each block.

Do you like being the star? THE METHOD

The classes in all courses are entirely in Spanish and are divided into several different segments. The aim of all teachers working at TANDEM is to enable their students to communicate effectively in Spanish.

Afternoon timetable

  • Low season (January to April) only morning timetable.
  • High season (from May to September) we have rotating schedules every week, for example: some groups will have classes one week in the morning. This schedule will change the following week to the afternoon, so that all students can have “free mornings” and “free afternoons”, every week, and vice versa.
  • The maximum number of students per class is 10, the minimum is 4. If the number of students per class is less than 4, the school will reduce the number of classes to half of the total.
