The CCLS Houston Method
With the help of the CCLS Interactive Program, students will develop and improve their proficiency in all four areas of language use: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Our Spanish lessons feature a variety of authentic audio, video, and print materials, as well as a heavy focus on classroom interaction.
Our CCLS Interactive Spanish Program is specifically designed to meet the language learning needs of adult and young adult learners. At CCLS Houston, we place a premium on Spanish speaking and listening skills, which students will learn through continuous involvement in interactive class activities, while homework activities will be geared towards the improvement of reading and writing skills in Spanish. Teaching tools include authentic materials such as newspaper and magazine clippings, TV clips, and music videos. Students will experience and learn about both formal and informal use of Spanish and will build conversational skills that reflect real-life, everyday situations.
The CCLS Program focuses primarily on teacher-student and peer interaction. Tasks and activities in the classroom include communicative activities (role-play, question-and-answer, the practice of natural speech, etc.), instructor-guided activities (reading comprehension questions, pronunciation practice, etc.), and exercises to learn and internalize specific Spanish vocabulary and grammar structures. Instructors introduce and explain grammar rules and usage in ways that non-native speakers can easily understand. Students become familiar with the natural dialects of different Spanish-speaking countries through situational dialogues that will serve as a basis for interactive classroom work.
We believe that our interactive, utterly immersive approach to learning Spanish maximizes student learning and creates an engaging classroom environment. We provide the highest quality Spanish classes Houston has to offer.
TThe CCLS Spanish Program series is comprised of seven levels of instruction, ranging from Basic to High Intermediate. Our CCLS Placement Test will determine the correct level for you. Standard level completion time is 60 hours, taught in 30 sessions of two hours each. The one-on-one or semi-private program suits depending on individual needs and the level of each student, with a flexible monthly schedule upon students and teachers’ availability; unlike the group program which sticks to a steady schedule.
The CCLS Spanish Program series will enable students to:
- Communicate in Spanish in a variety of social and professional situations;
- Understand general spelling and pronunciation rules, including some differences between the dialects of Spanish-speaking countries;
- Confidently speak on the phone and take part in meetings, lectures, or job training in Spanish;
- Represent themselves, their services, or their business to Spanish-speaking business associates or clients with confidence;
- Read Spanish-language newspapers, magazines, websites, etc.;
- Better understand cultural differences between the US and Spanish-speaking countries.
