Where do your students come from and how old are they?

Our students come from all over the world and from a wide variety of age groups; there’s a really diverse mix of people. Although we attract students of all ages, they tend to be between 25 and 50 years old. We’ve realised that age is no barrier; any student who’s keen to learn Spanish and make new friends from around the world will feel at home at Hola Spanish Courses.

What are the classes like at Hola?

You’ll be taught in Spanish from day one; that’s the best way to learn a new language. Our classes are COMMUNICATIVE; that is, we teach using a mixture of grammar, conversation and exercises. We focus on practical situations, such as meeting people, going shopping, working, etc.
Furthermore, to facilitate learning, the groups are small, with no more than eight students on each of our intensive courses.

How can I find out my level?

The test on our website will give you a reasonable idea of your level. Nevertheless, all our courses include a free written and oral level test on the first day. It’s important for us at the school and for you to find your level because that’s the way to progress quickly and feel at ease in the classroom.

Are the teachers qualified native speakers?

Yes. All the teachers at Hola are Spanish native speakers. They all have university qualifications and several years’ experience in teaching Spanish.

Do you organise cultural activities?

Yes. Each week we offer different activities in Spanish for our students. The activities always vary and include tours around Sitges, visits to museums, cookery classes, etc.

How far ahead do I need to book my course?

We recommend booking three or four weeks before the intended start date of your course to ensure that places are available, but it’s best to book as soon as possible.

Can I pay by credit card? (what are the payment methods?)
