Foreign Language

Dreaming Spires Foreign Language: Getting Real

The primary aim for our Foreign Language department is to guide your teen to a level of mastery where fluid - if not fluent - conversation is possible, and to set up general principles of foreign-language study that can be transferred to other languages should your child want to pursue them. 

At Dreaming Spires, the emphasis is on practical application

We offer a chance to start as a complete beginner and move up through our program to levels needed for exams, whether UK GCSE or even Spain's national exams.

Often, families aren’t sure exactly where to place a student if there has been some engagement with the language already, so we always encourage parents to contact us for one of our placement tests.

Whichever level you opt for, all our courses are conducted the same way: there is a one-hour live webinar with the tutor and various exercises assigned during the week that usually include verb drills and adding new vocabulary, preparing presentations, regular one-on-ones with the tutors, and practice partnerships where conversation is put into practice.

For 2019-2020, our beginner levels of Spanish and French are offering add-on extensions for further conversation opportunities. See our add-on page for more info.
