SPECIAL PROGRAMS SPANISH AND BUSINESS 4 week program | All Levels | Every Monday
Elebaires Spanish for Business was created especially for business students, recent graduates, MBA candidates, and young professionals looking to build their resumes and enhance their Spanish with specific, fundamental and relevant Spanish. Spanish for Business is a customized Intensive Group Spanish Course with the addition of individual lessons focusing on business and Latin American Business practices. The Business Program includes a total of 60 in-class hours over the period of one month. Regardless of your current Spanish level, you will find this to be an intensive, valuable and challenging course.
At the end of the Spanish for Business program you'll be able to successfully communicate in the following situations:
• Writing professional letters and emails
• When and how to use common business jargon
• Make meaningful contributions in a business meeting
• Understand the nuances of doing business in Latin America
60 hours of instruction over a period of four weeks. This includes 40 hours Fundamentals of Spanish small group sessions, 20 hours customized, one-on-one Spanish for Business classes.
The Spanish and Business program is a four week intensive program. The first two weeks emphasize Spanish fundamentals to learn, review and enhance the student's abilities for general conversation, thus making business lessons far more effective. You'll take four hours of small group fundamentals classes daily followed by a private Spanish for Business class. Your fundamentals class is grouped with students of all disciplines who share your Spanish level.
Classes use a combination of written grammar exercises, listening activities, conversation, debates, songs, games and plenty of chance to speak, speak, speak (and, of course, laugh!!) Your individual classes will focus on your particular area of business, and your professor tailors them to cover specifically what you told us you wanted to learn in your pre-trip evaluation.
During these first two weeks you'll visit the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange, and be paired with your Porteño Partner, a local young professional who will meet with you to chat about their work life, answer your questions, and surely ask plenty of their own!
During the second two weeks, you'll split your days between private Spanish for Business lessons and small group Spanish for Business classes. You'll take a class or two outside in a park, sit in a cafe, or just take a trip to the store to keep the learning dynamic. Together you'll have the chance to see what a prominent business school is like, with a tour of the La Universidad de la Empresa in Buenos Aires.
