Methodology

Methodology
Teaching methodology at DWS Spanish School, Buenos Aires has been continually updated to incorporate the latest techniques and thus ensure that our students enjoy a range of methods that are adapted to their needs.

Our Spanish teacher training department's mission is to homogenize our methods and educational principles in order to meet the demands and needs of our students.

Our main aims are:

Classes entirely in Spanish orientated towards the communicative development of our students.
Skills integration with special emphasis on listening comprehension and oral expression as well as learning and communication methods.
Lesson planning based on our fixed spanish programmes combined with our students' needs and their diverse learning styles.

A varied spanish programme which makes the most of the school's resources, as well as help for those students who are studying Spanish for specific purposes.

Our classes are based on the communicative approach and use the latest task based learning methodology. We are conscious of the need to use a variety of methods as our students come from a range of backgrounds and ages and have varied learning styles and needs. Activating communicative skills means planning classes taking into account linguistic objectives, sociocultural backgrounds, learning skills and communication with special emphasis on sentence construction and appropriate language. Rather than teachers who get their students to repeat structures and constructions teacher based, our teachers aim to help their students think in Spanish learner based.

Due attention is also paid to grammar, vocabulary, reading and writing skills, and a wide variety of materials is used including published materials from many sources as well as materials which have been written by our own Director of Studies.

All materials that the students need to work with are provided free of charge. This includes a Spanish book which is given to students at the beginning of their spanish course in Buenos Aires.

The teaching and the course programme are carefully supervised by the Director of Studies, who is also responsible for ensuring that students are placed in the appropriate levels and that their progress is satisfactory.

While the atmosphere in the classroom is generally relaxed and informal, students should be prepared to work hard and participate fully.


Social and Cultural Activities

Monday: We see “La bomba del tiempo”, group of drums formed by 17 distinguished percussionists. The musicians practice led improvisation and use a system of approximately 70 signs made with the hands, fingers and body. Each concert is unique and unpredictable as it depends on the interaction of all those involved in the ritual.

Tuesday: During the afternoon, we visit with a school guide the most attractive and characteristic places of Capital Federal and its surroundings, to meet historic buildings, museums and many other places of interest. This way, you will get a better background and further information on what you are going to visit and see while you will still be practising your Spanish.

Wednesday: Open tango lesson to learn the fundamentals of this dance, 100% Argentinean. The class is delivered in such a way that everybody can learn. The teachers observe and encourage partner rotation to favor a better learning experience.

Thursday: Not only do we taste several wines from different regions in Argentina, but we also learn the basics about the different wines and how to taste them.

Friday: We go to plays and concerts, such as shows that combine tango and acrobatics, physical skills, among others. The purpose is that of giving students a chance to use their Spanish out of the classroom doors, while socializing with the rest of the students at the school.
