Why study Latin American Spanish?
Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world after Mandarin. 90% of Spanish is spoken in Latin America. This is an opportunity to explore the language of a continent with its own voice and identity.
What and how are you going to learn?
We believe that language and culture are deeply connected. That´s why all Latin American Spanish courses are delivered with an emphasis on the cultural context that has shaped Latin American identity. Come and explore a diverse range of current and past sociocultural and political conflicts from the war on drugs in Colombia to the waves of protest in Chile aiming at making a significant change in the Chilean society. Dive into the revolution of inclusive language and the countries taking the lead. Fall in love with Native Latin American myths and legends that have survived until current times bringing a fresh and ancient perspective of the world.
You will also learn grammar and vocabulary to acquire proficiency in the language. We will see the main differences between Latin American Spanish and European Spanish, as well as some of the varied lexis used in Latin America that have been influenced by indigenous and African languages.
We also believe in an inclusive and personalised learning style. This is the reason why all online courses are delivered using a participatory approach, giving students opportunities to interact with each other and benefit from regular tutor feedback. Students will also have the opportunity to express themselves through debates, role plays and games.
The aim is to broaden horizons and break down prejudices, contributing towards a more inclusive and understanding society while having lot of fun!
Still not sure what level to join?
We have brand new placement tests for students signing up for the first time in September!
