That way the Spanish language course connects as seamlessly as possible with your situation, wishes and abilities.

Why Regina Coeli

  • Always based on real-life situations
  • Trainers come from Spanish-speaking countries
  • Learn Spanish at your level
  • Special attention paid to the cultures of Spanish-speaking countries

Spanish course

During your Spanish course, you receive lessons from four different trainers who guide you from your starting level to the level you actually need. This process takes place through role plays and conversations with the trainers. You also improve your knowledge and skills by practising in our multimedia room for a few hours each day.

Business Spanish training
If you are planning on doing business in a Spanish-speaking country, Language Institute Regina Coeli’s trainers can help you prepare. Regina Coeli’s business Spanish course programme can be followed if you already have some knowledge of and experience in the language. If you are a beginner, we first teach you the basics of the language, and then continue to work towards your goals by practising business language skills.

Doing business in Spanish-speaking countries
During the Spanish course, the trainers also pay attention to the cultures of Spanish-speaking countries. Doing business in Latin America and Spain is different than doing business in Northern Europe and Anglo-Saxon countries, for example. This naturally has an impact on how you best achieve the desired results in those countries.

 

 

Your team of trainers design a training programme for you prior to your course. For this, we use the information you give us during your intake appointment. You might even have a preparation lesson before starting, which helps the trainers get to know you and your needs even better.

The programme mainly consists of private lessons, multimedia exercises and practical assignments.

Private lessons from native speakers
At Regina Coeli, you learn Italian in private lessons given by well-educated native speakers. With them, you practise real-life conversations and role plays. Grammar and vocabulary expansion are a natural part of this.

Sophisticated multimedia programme
You can work independently after each lesson by, for example, using our multimedia programme. Your trainers select exercises which dovetail with your training programme. You might practise grammar, pronunciation and intonation by recording yourself and comparing it to a native speaker. Do you notice a difference? Or you might practise the verb tenses again and again, so that using the right tense at the right time becomes an automatic process.

Practical assignments
During your course, work on one of your own presentations, sales pitches or documents that you (can) use in real life. Work independently in your study hours and practise speaking in your private lessons. A course can be especially beneficial if you want to prepare for a specific event.

Your personal goals
You always work towards your own goals during the course. They are as specific as possible and geared towards practical situations such as ‘making my point clearly during the weekly teleconference with my international team’. We strive to help you reach your goals by the end of the course and use what you have learnt straight away in real life.

Score based on the CEF
At the end of the course, your team of trainers assesses your skills based on the CEF. This is the European norm for assessing skill levels in foreign languages. You receive a score for each specific applicable skill, such as speaking and writing.

An unforgettable experience
A course at Regina Coeli is an experience that stays with you long after you walk out our doors. You have the luxury of withdrawing from the commotion of everyday life and fully concentrating on learning a language. You are completely cared for while your team of trainers give you their time and undivided attention. Besides improving your self-confidence in a foreign language, your network grows when you get to talking to all the other people on their courses here.

Language Institute Regina Coeli is renowned for its intensive individual language courses—the ‘week with the Nuns’, but did you know that so much more is possible? Below you can learn more about our most popular types of courses.

Intensive individual courses
Your skills improve by leaps and bounds in a five-day course because you can fully concentrate on learning the language. You can take this training form from Monday through Friday, or spread it out over multiple weeks. You can also add a day or take a shorter course.

Preparation programme
As preparation for your intensive course at our institute, you can spend a half a day with us to get a head start, brush up on your knowledge or simply to get acquainted with the language.

Language coaching
You can also take a short course targeted to what you do in business or daily life. Work on sharpening up your presentation for two half-days, or noticeably improve your writing skills over the course of multiple days.

In-company programmes
We also deliver in-company courses. A trainer comes to your chosen location to train one or more employees. If you want your employees to have an intensive group programme, we can design a programme for them that takes place at our institute in Vught.

Every language course at Regina Coeli is tailor-made for you. Following your personal intake interview, you will receive a detailed, non-binding proposal for the most effective language programme for you.

You can of course consult the list with our fees.

Preparation programme: Spanish for beginners (‘Clase de preparación’)

Language Institute Regina Coeli offers you the opportunity to participate in a preparatory programme prior to starting your personal Spanish language course. In this programme, you will be introduced both to the Spanish language and to the Regina Coeli Method. The programme consists of two hours of private lessons and one hour in the multimedia lab.

In the two private lesson hours, you will study important areas of the Spanish language which may differ from your own. The Regina Coeli Method is very pragmatic and teaches you to apply the language immediately. In both lesson hours you will then directly use what you have learnt.

In the third hour your trainer will bring you to the multimedia lab. There, you will become familiar with Regina Coeli’s multimedia programme. You will work independently on a series of exercises related to the lesson materials taught in the first two private lesson hours.

The basic knowledge acquired in the preparation programme will enable you to more easily acquire the many new structures of the Spanish language during the intensive training programme.
