Tailor-made programmes for groups

Classroom-based tailor made courses for groups addressed to universities and educational agencies. Programmes are arranged according to the needs and objectives of each group, which can have a maximum of 15 students of the same language level. 

Our courses are adapted to each group, offering a wide range of timetables, possibility to choose the course calendar and total number of hours, and to obtain certification and university credits from the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). 

Tailor made programmes can be general language courses, adapted to the needs of the group, or specialised courses, such as:

  • Spanish for Business
  • Spanish for Tourism
  • Academic writing
  • Academic and professional oral presentations
  • Language strategies in Hispanic business environment
  • Spanish Communication skills 

*Programmes designed according to the needs of the group.

Methodology

The language teaching method is based on a communicative approach and interactive activities to develop the four main skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. We focus on individual assessment and learning strategies to help students continue studying tha language on their own and living the language outside the classroom. 

Virtual platform

We use the web-based learning management system Canvas, designed to extend learning beyond the classroom. The platform allows students to share classroom documents, submit assignments, contact the teacher and test their learning. 

Complementary services:

  • University library
  • Accommodation arranged by the university (Vila Universitària) 
  • Cultural visits
  • Seminars hosted by UAB Professors

Some of our tailor made programmes:

Tailor-made courses are available all year round. The course calendar can be designed according to the needs and objectives of the group. There are no set schedule of classes, which can be more or less intensive. 

Universities and educational agencies and universities can contact us by sending an email, which may include information on type of course, objectives, duration, number of students, course dates and preferred times. Once we receive the request, we will send a detailed academic proposal and quote. The necessary modifications can be done to design the most suitable programme, which may include exams, certificates and/or reports at the end of the course.  

Once the course is confirmed, we can start the registration procedure, by sending you specific application forms, and giving students the opportunity to take a level test,  so we can ensure they are placed in the right course.  

Please, contact susanna.perez@uab.cat for a personalised quote and academic proposal. 

Once we receive a tailor made course request, we will prepare a customized budget, adapted to the needs and course objectives.
