I just received information on some Spanish courses that are being offered for free during teacher training. I'm not endorsing the school, simply posting the information for anyone who might be interested. There are many other options which I have posted about in the past, but free is always handy if you're an expat on a limited budget!
The International House World Organisation is a network of language schools worldwide that are committed to implementing high standards of quality and innovation in education and training. There are currently over 120 schools in more than 35 countries.
For the past 40 years we have been teaching languages very successfully and especially popular is our Teacher Training Course, The IH Certificate in Teaching Languages to Adults, which lasts 4 weeks and where 8 teachers are trained.
Throughout the year we run our intensive and extensive Teacher Training Courses, which consist of theory and practice. In the Teaching Practice sessions, the trainee teachers apply the methodological topics covered in the course, and it is for this teaching practice that we need foreign students with an Elementary and Intermediate level of Spanish.
The Courses we will be running are:
January, February and July, Monday to Friday, 1 to 3 pm.
March - June and August - November, every Friday, 2 to 4 pm
In the classes we will cover conversation as well as grammar, vocabulary and everyday communicative situations. There is a maximum of 12 students per group and the lessons are free of charge, all materials and coffee included. There is a deposit of $ 100 which will be returned to you at the end of the course, provided you attend at least 75% of the classes.
The courses will be held at our Belgrano school, Arcos 1824. We hope to see you in one of our courses. For further information and enrollment, firstname.lastname@example.org Arcos 1824, Cap. Fed. Tel: 4785-4425
