IT is September once again, and that means back to school for everyone – including the Costa de Valencia Spanish language school in the regional capital.
The beginning of the academic year also marks the start of our long-term extensive courses, our intensive Spanish language courses and, above all, the preparatory courses for the Spanish university access test for foreign students, known as UNEDasiss, PCE or EBAU.
The Costa de Valencia school of Spanish has obtained the official accreditation from the Instituto Cervantes, which guarantees compliance with its quality standards for teaching the Spanish language. We are also a registered Examination Centre for DELE Spanish diplomas, the CCSE and the SIELE certificates, so our students can obtain an official title certifying their knowledge of the Spanish language at our facilities.
CCSE and DELE A2 exams are a requirement for the acquisition for the Spanish citizenship.
On our website, www.costadevalencia.com, you can find information about Valencia, our school, the courses we offer and the socio-cultural activities we organize.
Intensive 20 Course
Our Intensive 20 Course is aimed at students who need to improve their Spanish in a relatively short period of time.
In this course we work on all the skills (oral and written expression, reading and listening comprehension), giving special importance to communication, which right from the first day is carried out in Spanish.
It includes 20 classes per week (1 class = 50 minutes) in very small groups of 4 – 8 students maximum, plus socio-cultural modules.
Face-to-face courses start every week, and at all levels.
Extensive Spanish Courses
In 2023/2024, we offer two different types of long-term extensive courses:
Our Extensive Course 4+6 for Au pairs, Erasmus exchange students and other residents in Spain and anyone else who wishes to apply, taking place from the beginning of September to the end of June.
And our Extensive Course 10+6; this course is also useful for the extension of the student visa
These courses provide students with the opportunity to learn Spanish or improve their knowledge while combining classes with other daily activities (classes, work, childcare, etc.), as lessons take place in twice-weekly and four- times weekly sessions from 10.00 am to 11.40 am.
To meet the needs of all our students, we offer four and two levels according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (A1-A2-B1-B2). The courses are structured in such a way that students progress gradually through these levels, and the price depends on the number of months booked by the student.
Official Spanish exams preparation courses
We offer different exams preparation courses for DELE (Diplomas in Spanish as a Foreign Language), SIELE (International Service for the Evaluation of the Spanish Language), CCSE (Constitutional and socio-cultural knowledge of Spain) and preparation of Spanish Exams (Abitur, Matura, etc.)
Spanish university access
Our preparatory course for the Spanish university access test for foreigners (UNEDasiss, PCE or EBAU) is aimed at helping students pass the entrance exams for Spanish universities by focusing on four subjects, on which students will be assessed in their access test.
Depending on the type of university degree chosen by the applicant, students must select certain specific subjects for the entrance test:
- Subject 1: Spanish language and text analysis (all applicants)
- Subject 2: English or French (all applicants)
- Subject 3: Mathematics II or Applied mathematics for social sciences (Baccalaureate subject)
- Subject 4: Choice of subject relating to the degree
For example, if a student wishes to apply for a degree course in medicine, subjects 3 and 4 must be Mathematics II and Biology, respectively.
Our UNEDasiss course begins in October and runs until the end of May, timed to coincide with the date of the official exams.
To ensure that students have no problems requesting a visa, the school will provide a certificate. Once here in Valencia, we will help the student with the process to validate their baccalaureate diploma with the Ministry of Education.
