Description of the Exeter Based Lessons:

During all our courses you will be able to improve your language skills, meet new people and enjoy the culture as taught by a native speaker. Our syllabus has been designed to fulfil your language needs, be they for travel purposes, work or just for fun!

We offer innovative programs where you can learn from the complete beginning or improve with our wide range of Spanish language courses at all levels. Lessons include a balance of conversation, listening, pronunciation and grammar to help you communicate and thrive in everyday situations in Spanish speaking countries.

The syllabus aims to provide useful and relevant language skills using up-to-date and interesting materials. It encourages participants to practice the language and quickly build confidence and develop fluency.


For our 10 week course, lessons are held during the evening. Classes last for 2 hours and are held 1 day per week..

There is a maximum of 10 students per class, ensuring that all our students have the opportunity to participate and spend time with the tutor. A large part of the study material is presented in the form of practical activities and exercises through which you will learn to understand and speak Spanish almost without noticing. Homework and self-study are also an important part of the process.


Each person has different requirements and learning speeds. That's why for some people a group class may not be the best option. If you are interested in focusing your learning in a specific area or to fast track your learning then One to One lessons are the lesson plan for you.

Time and place depend on your convenience.

Online lessons are conducted via Skype, ideal for those who live away or don't have enough time to travel.

They will be happy to share with you their culture, music, food and advise you if you are thinking of travelling, working or living in their countries. Our teachers have at least 3 years experience, they are fun and very passionate about teaching.

Detailed Spanish Syllabus For The Exeter Courses:

At ARA Languages,we base our language syllabus on the Common European Framework for languages.

The CEFR is a part of the work of the Council of Europe and was established in the 1950s with the aim of the “democratisation of language learning for the mobility of persons and ideas, and on the promotion of the European heritage of cultural and linguistic diversity” In practice that means you should be able to do the same kinds of things in different languages at the same level. Each level in our syllabus is subdivided into Communicative Objectives, Topics and Vocabulary & Grammar.

Student Feedback:

Course: Lower Intermediate
Teacher: Julieta Castro
Reasons of studying Spanish: She wanted to learn another useful language.
Review: My husband and I have been studying Spanish with ARA Languages for the last year and have enjoyed it very much.
We have exercised both Verbal and Grammar skills. The process of studying was based not only on reading books but also playing various useful games and chatting with native speakers. We had lovely time! It's a great opportunity to learn Spanish and meet new interesting people.
