CLASS CURRICULUM

 

 

Placement test:  

Please ask your students to fill up this Placement test online

http://ecelaspanish.com/Examen_ECELA.html


The students who complete this test just need to do the oral test on their first day of school.

The students who didn’t fill out the online test will do a placement written exam (and oral if required by the Academic Coordinator after checking the written exam). It is mandatory in order to place the students in the right class level.

We do not take time from classes for this exam. 

Test to pass to the next level: 

Every four weeks we have a test and students must pass it with 75% or higher. If they fail, and want to try again, they can do a second special test on the following Monday at 08:00, but this time the minimum grade to obtain will be 85%.

We don't have a minimum % of attendance to pass to the next level. 


Spanish Language Levels 


These courses are designed with the primary focus of giving the students a thorough understanding of reading, writing and speaking Spanish. All key grammatical components are covered in a sequence, from beginners through advanced. Applied conversation is a key focus, and cultural discussion topics will be used to expand upon students’ vocabulary and conversational skills.
