There are a good range of Spanish Courses for you to choose from if you want to study abroad in Chile, so you need not worry about not being able to find something that is right for you. All it takes is a little looking around to find the one that is going to exactly what you need, and hitting the jackpot could mean the difference between a study course that is just alright, and a study course that catapults you to the next level of language comprehension and allows you to learn more than you could have imagined was possible.
There are a few good Spanish schools in Chile, as we have already discussed, and the one that we will look at first in terms of course variety is the AmeriSpan Spanish School. They have branches in Pichelimu, Santiago, and Vina del Mar, all of which run their general intensive course (a staple across every single AmeriSpan Spanish branch in both Spain and Latin America). Then there are a few extra options – in Pichilemu, for example, you can try Spanish lessons combined with those in surfing, and in Santiago you can try skiing. The capital city is also the location of the Independent Medical Spanish program, which will allow those involved in the medical profession at any level to learn some much needed vocabulary and phrases that will help them in their specific line of work. This is incredibly important, since when it comes to medicine a misunderstanding caused by a language barrier could well be the difference between life and death!
Then there are the five Spanish Courses that are offered by the Enforex Spanish School. Three of them are rather normal, courses that you can also find at most of their other branches – intensive Spanish, super intensive Spanish, and private lessons with your own tutor. There are two options however that are much more exciting: the chance to learn how to dance in the salsa style alongside your Spanish lessons, and also the opportunity to take part in a volunteer program that involves four weeks of Spanish lessons followed swiftly by four weeks of volunteer work in the local community. This can be a really rewarding program both in terms of language practice and the feeling of fulfilment!
You will find that there is actually a very similar syllabus list set out by the don Quijote Spanish School, although of course you can find variations between the two schools in terms of the way they run things and how teachers will lead you through the process. You can really use the different Spanish Courses as a way to help you decide which school will be right for you if you are not yet sure which way to go, so deciding on what you want to study first is a great step. Of course, if you just want to take the general intensive program, you will have your work cut out for you as all three offer their own version!
