INDIVIDUAL SUPPORT IN SMALL STUDY GROUPS AND TEACHING METHODOLGY
Contact between lecturers and students is an important part of ASCENSO philosophy. This ensures that you are individually supported according to your potential. Various studies show that teacher-centred instruction contributes little to learning success. For this reason, our courses are based on modern teaching methods: starting from theoretical concepts, you will deepen your knowledge through application-oriented and real, practical examples and projects, discussions, case studies or team tasks. Regular business excursions to hotels, tourist companies, cruise ships, sports clubs, event agencies and locations, among others, are standard study components.
LEARN AND SPEAK SPANISH IN EVERYDAY LIFE
In addition to your studies, you can take an optional Spanish course at ASCENSO Academy. This prepares you for the internationally recognized Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera (D.E.L.E.) granted by the Spanish Instituto Cervantes. The D.E.L.E. levels (A1-C2) correspond to the Common European Framework of References for Languages (CEFR) similar to Cambridge English Qualifications, or the French DELF.
Studying in Spain offers you a significant advantage: what you have learned can be used directly in everyday life, and thus be better absorbed.
