Is it possible to combine group classes and 1-on-1 classes?

Yes, you can! And we really recommend doing so because that’s how you get the most out of your time at our Spanish school!

Have a look here to book a package. Also, you can always book extra 1-on-1 lessons!

Do you also offer Spanish classes online?

Yes, we do! And you can continue (or finish) your Spanish course even when you’ve left El Zonte! The online Spanish classes are always held 1-on-1!

Do you offer any official certificates?

We do not offer any official certificates like DELE or SIELE (not yet!).

Nevertheless, we provide our own SAY ZONTE! CERTIFICATES that are quite similar to the official ones.

This ensures that you follow along with the official curriculum needed for your academic career

Group Classes

How does it work?

Group classes start every Monday at 8:00 am.

A course typically spans five days, from Monday to Friday, with sessions running from 8:00 am to 10:00 am, including a 10-minute break.

You can sign up for a group course up to 24 hours before it starts.

Is it possible to start on a day other than Monday?

Our group classes always start on monday to ensure that the group can learn together and to avoid repetitions. 

Anyway, you can start with some 1-0n-1 lessons at any other day of the week and then keep going on a monday with your group classes.

Are there different levels?

Yes, there are different course levels! Depending on whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or an advanced Spanish learner, we will assign you to a specific course.

To ensure that you are participating in a course that reflects your current Spanish level, we will conduct a short evaluation test with you before the course starts.

How many people are there in the group classes?

Every group class has at least 2 students, but no more than 6!

What if there are not enough students at my level for group classes?

We require a minimum of two students with more or less the same Spanish level to form a group class.

If you are the only one interested in, let’s say, a Spanish beginner group class, you have two options:

  1. Ask a friend if he or she wants to join you!

  2. Opt for 1-on-1 classes!

Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee that there will always be enough Spanish students at your level in El Zonte who want to start a group class with you. We will notify you as soon as possible if your group class can take place.

How many people are there in the group classes?

Every group class has at least 2 students, but no more than 6!

Can I cancel my group classes?

You can cancel your group course up to 48h before it starts.

Please note that we can’t provide any refunds if you decide to cancel your group course after it has started.


I am not taking Spanish Classes with you! Can I participate in your Activities anyway?

Simple answer: Yes, you can! No problem at all!
