The national TV channel TELE 5 interviews Ignacio, Director of studies
Last week we received in Lacunza the visit of the national TV channel TELE 5.
The journalist was interested in the linguistic journey of a student who starts stuyding Spanish from scratch until he is able to defend himself in the language of a country.
As we know, language is fundamental for a person to integrate into the culture and traditions of the country and to be able to interact with its people.
Even if the evolution depends in part on each person ( if you speak other languages is a big plus for example) it usually takes about four or five weeks of intensive course (about seventy or eighty hours). Moreover, if you immerse yourself living with a native family and interact with locals, you will reach that level more quickly.
For more advanced levels, the time required is longer. You can see here the estimated time for each of the levels.
This is what Ignacio says in the interview with the media who were interested in knowing the progress in the language for someone who has never studied Spanish. Right now, this is the case of many Ukrainian refugees who are arriving in our country.
For more than 30 years we have been welcoming total beginners of all ages and nationalities who receive a course only in Spanish, even if they have no knowledge: that's the magic of Lacunza IH and our teachers. All of them go to the next level!
