  • The Santa Bárbara Language School links to the most recent methodology of teaching from a communicational perspective, which is addressed to all types of students.
  • We want our students to be independent thinkers and active participants who are highly motivated to achieve a good level of communicative competence in all competences (written comprehension, written expression, oral comprehension and oral expression).
  • Our main objective is to educate our students with the knowledge and strategies necessary for a complete immersion in any Hispanic environment, mainly exploring the different cultures of Latin America and Spain.
  • We also want students to be honest and to improve their interculturality, to feel confident and to strengthen their identity and self-expression, while enriching their experience as a multilingual person.
