Activities every day18th March 2016
We do NOT want you to miss any of your lessons; therefore we will check your Spanish level before your arrival. We will send you a written level test by email and we will also do a Skype interview with you in order to place you in the correct level. If you do not know the answer to some questions on the test, please do not answer it. The test is for the teacher to know what things you know, what things you do not know, and what things you need to learn!
