Spanish teachers at IH Barcelona
Me gusta dar clase en IH - con tantos estudiantes de tantos paises, no hay ningún grupo igual, el ambiente es muy dinámico
I like teaching at IH with so many students from so many countries, no two groups are alike, it's a very dynamic atmosphere
Barcelona-born Francesca has been teaching at IH since 1999.
Our teachers are all university graduates with extensive teaching experience.
They have also been specifically trained to teach Spanish as a foreign language, which makes them highly effective when it comes to helping students maximise learning.
Many of our teachers also work in our Spanish teacher training department.
Our teaching staff can count on academic support and on-going training under the supervision of the director of studies and with the cooperation of the teacher training department.
The optimal quality of teaching that IH offers is constantly reinforced through teachers' meetings, classroom observations and teachers' workshops.
What makes IH Barcelona different
Most schools claim to have great teachers and IH Barcelona is no exception. The difference is that we know our teachers are great because we've trained them how to teach Spanish effectively ourselves and we've seen them in action (teaching students on our intensive training courses) before we contract them to work with us.
What's more, teacher training at IH Barcelona is an on-going process. We're constantly organising seminars and training sessions to keep our teachers up-to-date with all the latest developments in language teaching methodology.
IH Barcelona has an international reputation as a teacher training centre. We train more teachers of Spanish each year than any other private training institution in Spain on our own teacher training courses and we also organise the largest conference for Spanish teachers held anywhere in Europe.
The main goal of most of our courses is to help our students develop their communicative skills. The best way to accomplish this is to conduct the classes entirely in Spanish and to provide students with plenty of opportunity for oral practice.
This does not mean that other areas are neglected; our students also work on reading and writing skills, grammar and vocabulary.
