With a little initiative and determination, you learn to speak the language fluently. Seminar Teaching is done in groups of four to six students, organized so that the students can practice the language both orally and in writing. As part of the course you will also visit local organizations. Grammar classes are mainly lectures in Spanish and English. The lecturer is for the moment Norwegian.
