"As a student at this school I have been very satisfied with everything. I have felt that my Spanish has developed so much in such a short time. My teachers have been fantastic!!! Group classes combined with individual classes are ideal and make a difference. The school atmosphere is wonderful and everyone is so helpful here, all of which make attending classes a real pleasure. Thank you!"

Common European Framework of Reference (CERF)

Our curriculum and, therefore, our teaching plans are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) which sets the standard for all our Spanish Schools. The CEFR divides the learning process into 6 different levels ranging from A1 beginners up to C2 masters. 
This system validates your language ability and the qualification mode is widely understood by educators.


In COINED there are 6 different levels ranging from A1 beginners up to C2 masters.

  • Basic (A1): You will be given the tools to provide set phrases and small dialogues to introduce you into this new language.
  • Elementary (A2): You will be able to produce short sentences and create dialogues with your classmates.
  • Intermediate (B1): You will be able to recognize the situation you are in and act accordingly with the appropriate vocabulary and grammar structures.
  • High-Intermediate (B2): You will focus on being more accurate in your speech and provide well structured sentences about your personal opinion.
  • Advanced (C1): you will be able to make coherent and well structure paragraphs. Also, you will know how to fluently express yourself in different contexts.
  • Proficiency (C2): You will learn more vocabulary and grammar structures to be more accurate in the use of the language and you will improve your fluency.
