LINGUAMANIA has offered Spanish Courses for foreigners since 2005. As a small and welcoming language school in Vigo (Northwest of Spain), we pride ourselves in receiving course participants from all over the world. Classes typically have a very culturally diverse set of students coming from many different places in Europe, U.S.A., Canada, China, Taiwan and Japan, which makes the experience of studying Spanish even more interesting and international than you can ever imagine. Many of our students make friendships that last for a long time after their courses end.
The Spanish language needs of our students are very diverse, ranging from exam preparation for General Spanish to Business Spanish, Spanish for tourism and travels and Spanish for Au Pairs, etc. We also specialize in exam preparation for Certificado Cervantes (DELE). In addition, we are officially recognized as an examination center for the Madrid Chamber of Commerce official exams in Spanish as a Business Language and Spanish for Tourism.
LINGUAMANIA is also listed as an official provider of language courses to the European Parliament and is a verified member of the Global Language Association. Recently we have joined FIDESCU, as an accredited examination center for Diploma Internacional de Español (D.I.E.)
Intensive and extensive courses in small groups (Max. 8 students). One to One and Two to One lessons offered too.
New intensive courses start the 1st Monday of each month and 1st and 3rd Monday of the month between June and September.
Small but welcoming Language school. Nice staff, very good language teachers and open host families will make you feel at home.
As a small school we adapt to your needs. In a larger group, we will always try to use the communicative method without forgetting the use of listening, writing, reading and grammar. You will also maintain direct contact with our staff and teachers.
During summer, we organise 2 excursions per week and tapas meetings. During the rest of the year, the city and all the villages around offer plenty of variety of cultural events. Also dancing, surfing and cooking lessons are possible.
If you come for a short period of time and wish to make the most of your stay, you can ask to be with a Spanish host family or share an apartment with Spanish people.
The standard option, the intensive course, consists of 20 lessons per week in a group of minimum 3 students from Monday to Friday. The typical timetable is from 10 am to 1.30 pm including a short break. During the break we all go (students, teachers and staff) to get a coffee in a terrace. Classes are formed by students' level of Spanish from A1 to C1/C2. Because of the small classes, the teacher can give individual support and classes are intensive. Besides the Spanish language, the Galician and Spanish culture is an integral part of the Spanish classes at Linguamania. On the last day of your course you will receive a certificate of attendance indicating the dates of the course and the level achieved.
For those seeking and even more flexible and intensive experience, we recommend private lessons, the so called one-to-one course. You have the benefit of deciding the topic to be discussed during the individual lessons. If you come together with a friend who has the same level of Spanish, you can alternatively go for the individual lessons with one teacher and two students, called the Two-To-One course. Lesson timetable is flexible (Monday to Friday), depending on availability. Rates vary in accordance to the program selected, so please contact us for a quote on your personal customized course series. On the last day of your course you will receive a certificate of attendance indicating the dates of your course and the level achieved.
We are happy to receive High School trips between April and June. The course lasts 1 week (or more) and includes classes during morning time, 3 excursions in VIGO and Santiago de Compostela during afternoons, transfers from Vigo Airport, accommodation in a 2* hotel with half board option.
