METHODOLOGY, EXAMS AND CERTIFICATES

At Malaca Instituto we`ve always believed that immersion backed up by expert teaching is the most effective way to learn Spanish. We achieve our results through integrating our teaching methods with the life-enhancing experience of learning by exploring our culture.

Our exciting activities and excursions are not just a fun extra, they are an integral part of the learning journey. You will have the benefits of immersion by placing you in direct contact with the living language in a fun and exciting way.

By helping you discover the amazing attractions of our country, we provide a focus for practice, discussion and debate, as well as greater insight into a Spanish-speaking culture.

As we have a wide range of different courses with different objectives, our teaching style varies according to the type of course but whatever your ambitions, our immersive courses are designed to help you achieve your goals and enrich your life.

We use an eclectic, integrated method combining many aspects of the communicative approach with structured learning of grammar and syntax, this involves some elements of traditional teaching methods, as well as classroom activities such as language games, pair work and role-plays aimed at developing communicative fluency. Our students are encouraged to speak in Spanish from the very beginning.

Malaca Instituto has three separate but integrated departments responsible for the academic organisation of the school.

• Research and Development: this department is responsible for the creation of our in-house published textbooks and other supplementary materials which are all in a continual process of up-dating.

• Teaching Department: our Director of Studies, helped by a team of coordinators, plans and organises the day-to-day teaching schedule and the rotation of teachers which is one of the distinctive features of the school. Our teachers are lively experts whose role is to motivate and stimulate the participation of all their students.

• Teacher training: a team of teacher-trainers reports to the Director of Studies and is responsible for the in-house teacher training programme and teacher refresher courses.
We hold regular workshops and training sessions for our teachers to keep them up-to-date with the latest ideas and tendencies in the teaching of Spanish.
We also provide courses for non-native-speaker teachers of Spanish.

“I am a teacher and I love learning, I’ve taken part in many different courses in many different
subject areas and this was one of the best (if not the best) in which I have participated. The
methodology and the quality of the teaching are outstanding” Michelle Mossou. USA.

• Exams and certificates: at the end of each course level on our General Spanish course there is an Examination which students can take outside class hours. We encourage all our General Course students to take these Exams as they are an excellent way to reinforce their knowledge and the Certificates of Linguistic Competence which are awarded, based on the results, provide an objective statement of the student’s level of Spanish.

ERASMUS+ FUNDED COURSES AT MALACA INSTITUTO

Students, teachers and other staff in education institutions in Europe, whether public or private can apply for funding for courses at Malaca Instituto. There are certain restrictions but the following are all possible:

Spanish + Internship programmes: students at University in Europe can apply for funding to take a term of Spanish + Internship, as long as this is an integral part of their degree studies. Ask for information.

• VET College groups: teachers at professional training colleges in Europe can apply for funding for language courses with a specific professional training component. This is particularly the case in colleges of Tourism, Catering or Business.
Ask for information.

Courses for Spanish Teachers and school staff: general language courses, methodology, cultural programmes, inspection visits ……

Some courses are for teachers with advanced Spanish, but other teachers with less Spanish knowledge, including beginners, can apply for funding in certain situations.

If you are a student at university in Europe and you have an Erasmus Exchange Year at a Spanish University, you will need to speak good Spanish (at least a good B2 level, if not C1) if you are to gain the maximum benefit from your time and the tax-payers money.

Malaca Instituto is an ideal place for you to study and achieve this level of Spanish prior to your Erasmus Year. See Intensive Superintensive course.

SPANISH TEACHERS AND ERASMUS+

After all those school trips with 30 or so teenagers, now there is something just for YOU!

All working teachers and some other key staff in schools and other teaching institutions in Europe can apply for Erasmus+ “mobilities” and take language courses at schools such as Malaca Instituto.

• Funding: the fund covers all aspects of your programme including flights, course, meals and accommodation.

• Funding already approved: if you already have funding approved to study in Spain, Malaca Instituto can probably provide a course that meets the stated objectives of your proposal and even if you had already chosen a different course and school, you can change this and study with us.

• Choosing your school: as a teacher you will want the best programmes available. Quality and not price should be your main concern. Make sure the school you choose has independent quality labels such as EAQUALS or IALC and at least the Instituto Cervantes.

• Types of course eligible:

Intensive Spanish courses at all levels.

∙ Advanced Spanish + methodology and/or shadowing.

∙ Spanish plus cultural activities: eg dance or cookery for teachers from these areas.

• Typical funding justifications:

∙ Switch training: secondary schools with an increasing demand for Spanish can apply for their French teachers to take Spanish language courses.
∙ Non-native speaker language teachers: advanced Spanish courses combined with methodology lessons or teacher observations.

∙ Language courses for CLIL: teachers of other subjects in bi-lingual, International and IB schools needing to teach their subjects in Spanish.

∙ Drama or Dance Teachers: can combine Flamenco or Salsa classes with general Spanish - this gives them enhanced skills and cultural understanding to pass on to their students.

∙ Non-teaching staff: any staff involved in international projects, exchanges etc or dealing with multi-cultural/lingual students can justify applying for language courses.

In 2014, 150,000 teachers and school staff participated in an Erasmus+ funded course abroad.

This is a fantastic opportunity for teachers and school staff involved in language teaching, international projects or any other activity involving languages to use Erasmus+ funding to gain new skills, refresh and deepen existing skills and gain the overall motivating and culturally enriching experience that is a course at a top language school.
