Introduction to Spanish

Build the basics of Spanish using learning experiences with native speakers. This module blends online content with experiences and guided learning either in Medellín or online.

Go through each level at your own pace or in intensive group sessions.
Use additional content outside of your sessions in our learning platform.

  • Intensive course– 4 hours a day, Monday to Friday, 9am to 12pm
  • Private- 90 minute sessions – flexible schedule
  • Online– schedule 45 minute blocks according to your timetable – most flexible

Prime’s introduction course uses a blended methodology and focuses on the the meaningful use and experience of Spanish. Through living a language and practising in relatable environments we are able to give context to the new information we are learning.

We learn by doing. Prime creates learning environments where you can learn a language through its use.

Our sessions follow a structured to free approach where we introduce concepts in an understandable context and then get to practising in real or simulated situations.

You can get involved in our community whether you are online or offline.

Volunteer in our social projects, attend our events, participate in forums or get active on social media.
We aim to grow together as a global community of learners.
