1- What is the maximum size of the classes?
Our Spanish group classes consist of a maximum of four students per teacher. However, almost all year round we can manage to keep the group size at 2-3 students per teacher. If you take individual classes or register for a private course you will, of course, have a teacher for yourself.
2 - Do I get a certificate?
Absolutely! You will receive a certificate at the end of your course. The Spanish courses of Proyecto Peru are accredited by the Peruvian Ministry of Education. Always choose an accredited Spanish course!
3 - Do I need to prepare study materials?
All study materials are included. You only have to bring a pen. We provide quality books, games, magazines and everything else you need for your classes.
4 - Is it possible to extend my stay?
Yes, of course; just let us know and we can help you with your arrangements.
5 -Do I have to take a placement test at the centre?
Normally, yes, unless you are a total beginner. The test takes approximately 20 minutes. This will allow us to evaluate your language skills and help us place you in the class with the correct level.
6 - Are the classes fun or just work, study, work, study?
Believe it or not, it is fun most of the time, both in and outside the classroom. Our programmes are made to provide complete immersion, which means learning by experience. Class material is presented in an interactive manner, not a boring lecture format. We also have free fun activities like dance classes and cooking classes.
7 - When should I book my Spanish course?
You choose when your lessons start and finish. Spanish programs run all year. There are no definitive deadlines for application, but we prefer at least 2 weeks to comfortably process an application. However, we would like to receive your application form as far in advance as possible, so please apply as soon as you've decided which program you want to take. If you decide at the last minute, do give us a call to see how quickly we can arrange it for you. If you take a program with accommodation, we prefer your application form two months in advance. Also if you want to do volunteer work or an internship we wish to receive your application at least two months in advance.
8 - Are there additional fees for last minute booking ?
We will NOT charge you any additional fees for last minute bookings.
9 - What if I want to change my course or dates?
If you encounter any troubles holding on to the dates you booked, or if you just desire to change the type of your course, please send us an e-mail and we will do our best to meet your wishes! Please be kind and let us know at least one week in advance!
10 - Should I pay before my Spanish course starts?
The students must pay a deposit before arrival. We will send you an e-mail with the payment information. You can pay the rest on arrival to the secretary of the Spanish school.
