Kursy Przygotowawcze dla Nauczycieli Języka Hiszpańskiego Hispania, escuela de español

Professional Training Courses for Spanish Language Teachers


These are course-workshop where students learn the most innovative and  efficient teaching methods that Hispania’s teachers follow. These strategies are favourably received not only by ELE students, but also by Linguistic professionals.

The Pedagogicall System is based on learning through interaction, it is never just a theoretical course. The classes are focused on conversation, and student participation is essential. When the students of the Course for Learning how to be a Spanish Teacher finish the practical module in class, they have to put the learned knowledge into practice by teaching to ELE students under the  supervision of one of Hispania’s teachers.
