Each lesson hour has duration of 50 minutes and they take place from Monday to Friday, except for official holidays (see the following heading) which are recoverable (only for private lessons).

Classes are programmed between 8:00 am and 5:30 pm. All group courses start on Monday; students may begin their classes any Monday or Tuesday. However if they begin on Tuesday, that Monday is not recoverable.

The school has its own material in combination with international Spanish text books and other materials (e.g. newspapers, songs, literature, cassettes / cds, videos and grammar exercises) including the use of videos and other audio-visual materials. In the case of tailored programs for professionals (e.g. Medical Spanish) the school uses specialized books and material.

Participants will be able to choose a program with a minimum duration of one week, after that every student can ask for a certificate of participation in the program specifying the level that the student has reached during their program. Students can also ask for an evaluation exam to receive a certificate of the level they have achieved.
