Lesson Materials

We work with a combination of different Latin America-oriented textbooks, which form the basis of our own course material. In addition, our ‘textbook’ is interactive and includes videos, audio, texts, exercises and more.

We use this in combination with other materials such as newspapers, songs, literature, and other audio-visual materials.

All our Spanish courses are focused on practical activities and exercises through which the students will learn Spanish in an interactive environment, thus learning the Spanish language quickly.

Spanish Levels

At AMAUTA, we work with four levels, arranging the goals of each based on our experience and following the curriculum of the Instituto Cervantes and the equivalents of the Council of Europe. These levels are beginners Spanish, intermediate Spanish, advanced and superior. Each has its own sub-levels.

Beginners Spanish

A1 and A2
This level is for students without any knowledge of the Spanish Language. Upon completion, the student will formulate and understand short sentences relating to basic necessities and forms of politeness.

Intermediate Spanish

B1
This course will bring you to a higher level. As a result, you will be able to express yourself, perhaps sometimes with a little difficulty, but usually spontaneously and independently, in everyday situations. Includes a revision of basic grammar structures and the past tenses.

Advanced

B2
The student will have advanced communication ability in Spanish, even in complicated situations. The student will work extensively on past tenses and be introduced to the subjunctive.

Superior Spanish

C1 and C2
Clearing up minor imperfections; refining Spanish pronunciation and intonation. The student will communicate, without difficulty, with people who are native Spanish speakers. Errors and deficiencies in Spanish grammar structures that still exist will be corrected.
