Spanish Courses Information


The Spanish courses at Oaxaca are intensive and interactive, designed to meet each individual student’s specific needs!

New courses are opened every Monday year round, and each academic hour consists of 50 minutes with breaks in between. We offer Spanish programs of the best quality, and courses are available at all levels, from beginners to advanced learners. A level assessment is administered prior to begin on the first day to ensure that you are placed in a class suitable to your knowledge.

Our programs focus on enhancing students’ conversational ability through writing, comprehension, pronunciation, grammar and reading. Listed below are descriptions of the grammatical points covered in each level:

Beginner Spanish I
Gender and number, definite and indefinite articles, adjectives, the verbs “estar”, “haber” and “ser”, demonstratives, regular and irregular verbs in present tense, direct pronouns (part I).

Beginner Spanish II
Irregular verbs in present tense (part II), present progressive, present perfect and preterit tense, reflexive verbs, direct and indirect pronouns in the same sentence.

Intermediate Spanish I
Imperfect tense, imperfect progressive and preterit progressive tenses, preterit and imperfect in the same sentence, accidental verbs, comparisons, past perfect tense.

Intermediate Spanish II
Future tense, conditional tense, passive voice, comparisons of “por” and “para”, familiar and formal commands.

Advanced Spanish I
Subjunctive mode (present and past).

Advanced Spanish II
In-depth analysis and review of all the grammatical points seen in the previous levels.

Advanced Spanish III
Analysis of literature, newspapers, journals and other material, grammatical review.

Spanish courses are available under group and individual instruction, and both can be combined to enhance your learning experience. Group class size never exceeds 6 students to create the right environment for full immersion, and individual lessons (1 on 1) are ideal for students who prefer having the teacher’s undivided attention to advance at a faster pace.

As a guarantee that you will only get the best quality for the courses, all of the Spanish programs in Oaxaca are endorsed by Mexico Si, the Mexican Association of Spanish Language Institutes.
