Aprender otra lengua ¿existen los milagros?

A todos nos suenan los eslóganes como Learn Spanish in 5 minutes a day o Free online lessons o Aprende francés sin esfuerzo y Learn Spanish Fast and Easy. Este tipo de ofertas inundan nuestra pantalla, nada más abrir el navegador de internet y escribir unas palabras de búsqueda.
Pero ¿te has preguntado si la información difundida es real o más bien engañosa?  ¿Puedo aprender realmente una lengua extranjera dedicando solamente 5 minutos al día? ¿El mundo no estaría plagado de políglotas si todo esto fuera verdad? ¿Por qué las empresas invierten tanto dinero en la formación lingüística de sus empleados? Y ¿por qué las academias de inglés están llenas de niños que aprenden esa lengua casi imprescindible?

Todo depende del cómo y del porqué aprendemos una lengua, de nuestro tiempo e interés y también, por supuesto, de nuestro presupuesto.

Speed language learning puede funcionar para aquella persona británica  que planea irse de vacaciones a Mallorca y quiere aprender a pedir un café y comprar el pan en español. Recibirá una sonrisa simpática del camarero y de la panadera, ya que la gente suele valorar mucho el esfuerzo de alguien que intente hablar su lengua. Si eres ese turista ¡adelante! y anímate también a bajar un YouTube gratuito.

Ahora bien, si preparas un examen, quieres ir a estudiar un año en España como estudiante Erasmus y a continuación hacer unas prácticas en un banco o en una empresa, vas a necesitar una formación lingüística algo más sólida y por lo tanto un curso diseñado por profesionales.
En otras palabras, aprender y llegar a dominar a un nivel avanzado una lengua extranjera, sea español, inglés, alemán o cualquier otra, requiere un mínimo esfuerzo y un buen método. Los métodos meramente comunicativos o aquéllos que ofrecen un léxico totalmente inconexo, no son del todo eficaces. En @ITSalamanca creemos en un método mixto, en el que se combina la clásica ficha gramatical con sus ejercicios y prácticas en todas las destrezas necesarias: la expresión escrita y oral, la comprensión auditiva y la lectora.

Hoy día todo evoluciona, se mueve y pasa muy rápido. Pocas personas disponen ya del tiempo y presupuesto necesario para pasar uno o varios meses en España con el fin de aprender español. Lo hemos notado y lo sabemos.
Con el fin de dar una respuesta a la nueva circunstancia, hemos desarrollado nuestros cursos de Lengua Española online: son completos y ofrecen un método de aprendizaje de una probada eficacia en 6 niveles. Los 25 años de experiencia en la enseñanza de lenguas extranjeras nos han dotado de los conocimientos didácticos suficientes para elaborar y hacer funcionar nuestros cursos.
Nuestra enseñanza de español online no falla. Aprenderás la lengua con criterio, siguiendo un buen método. Anímate a probarlos y ¡juzga tú mismo!

How much Spanish will I be able to learn?

Starting from scratch

If you start with no previous knowledge, i.e. as a beginner, and you follow a general online Spanish course (15 hours per week) , you will attain a basic level in one month and an advanced level in 9 months or one year.

The following gives you an idea of the average duration of learning Spanish as a foreign language by levels, starting at the beginning:

A1:  4 weeks
A2:  8 weeks
B1: 12 weeks
B2: 20 weeks
C1: 28 weeks
C2: 36 weeks

Learn Spanish online

Attaining Spanish levels

Starting from level A1 (Introduction) and continuing progressively until C2 (Advanced): 36 weeks or 9 months

If your level is:

Introduction A1

You will be able to understand easy texts and participate in basic conversations. You can introduce yourself, explain where you live, who your family members are, or go shopping for clothes or food without having much trouble. You know how to express your preferences, to talk about the weather, a trip, or even the past. If people do not speak too fast, you can understand everything they say.

At the Elemental A2 level

You can tackle everyday situations during your stay in Spain. It is then when you learn how to talk in the past or future tense; you can understand the newspapers or go to a chemist’s. Your level is that of survival +.

At the Intermediate B1 level

You will improve your knowledge of grammar and vocabulary and will be able to speak Spanish much more fluently. You will have a vocabulary of around 2500 words. You will be able to talk about your experiences, your tastes and your wishes, or watch a film/movie in Spanish. You will understand almost everything.

At the Advanced B2 level

You will have a wide knowledge of the language and you will feel much better talking to your Spanish friends about customs and habits. You will be able to make complicated sentences, using the subjunctive tense correctly. You can express your wishes and feelings and you learn how to use the verb TO BE (“ser and estar”) correctly. You will understand almost everyone even if they speak fast.

At the highest levels, Superior C1 and Advanced C2

We work on the grammar and vocabulary so you can speak Spanish fluently with accuracy and spontaneity in any situation. We emphasize the written language. You also learn expressions from Latin America. The Spanish language has no secrets for you!

Attaining Spanish levels

If you wish to find out your current level, it only takes 5 minutes to do this exam and this exam.

Common European Frame of Reference for Languages (CEFRL)

The teaching of foreign languages is organised on six levels according to the Common European Frame of Reference for Languages (CEFRL)

What is the Common European Frame of Reference for Languages (CEFRL)?

In the “CEFRL” we can see there are six levels: A1 and A2 (basic); B1 and B2 (independent user); C1 and C2 indicate a perfect command of the language.

The CEFRL defines the criteria in order to measure the knowledge of all languages in the European Union. It will therefore be our link when we have to establish the objectives for each student. It is interesting to be familiar with the levels according to their linguistic and grammar contents.

These are the following ones:
A1. Access Level
A2. Platform Level
B1. Intermediate
B2. Upper intermediate
C1. Effective Operational Proficiency
C2. Advanced

What are the technical abilities and skills assessed?

The CEFRL establishes a series of criteria that are valid for all European languages as far as teaching, learning and evaluating languages is concerned.

“I have done a 2 months online course at IT Salamanca. The quality of the instruction is superb. I have studied Spanish for 20 years, including several years at the University of Leiden and one year in Granada, Andalusia. I have never encountered such a dedicated and skilled teacher as Charo. She helped me finally understand the subjunctive, and corrected errors I've been making for years. Charo is very talented in writing personal exercises that exactly match with your individual level of Spanish. She is also funny, kind, patient, and punctual. IT Salamanca (ITS) is a highly recommended school. Paul van der Meer, Leiden, The Netherlands
“Os comunico una buena noticia: he aprobado el DELE Superior. Nuevamente os quiero agradecer a todos vosotros de ITS y especialmente a mis profesoras, vuestro apoyo y consejos Masami Yokota, Japón preparación a DELE, mayo 2003.
“Recomiendo ITS a mis compañeros traductores e intérpretes en Holanda. Así pasarás una buena temporada en España y ganarás puntos para el famoso “Registro” (en mi caso 40). Además te saldrá mucho más barato que los cursos costosos en Holanda Coby Heijnsdijk, Holanda Cursos de traducción, septiembre 2012
“Ik heb een tekst uit het Spaans in het NL vertaald (een tekst met veel spreektaal), en voor de rest alles uit het NL in het Spaans, waaronder een aantal semiwetenschappelijke artikelen uit het blad Quote. Erg leuk. Het programma is echter ook heel intensief.... Ik heb echt het gevoel dat ik qua vertalen NL – Spaans een groot stuk vooruitgang heb geboekt, en daar was het natuurlijk ook allemaal om te doen! Ingrid Riper, Holanda Cursos de traducción, junio 2011
“Quiero darles las gracias porque ya tengo mis resultados del DELE y estoy muy muy contenta porque he aprobado. No hubiera podido aprobar con estas notas sin vosotras. Muchísimas gracias. No podéis imaginarse lo feliz que soy con mis resultados. Gracias por todo Aurélie Tinel, Bélgica preparación a DELE noviembre 2005
“En ITS me ofrecían la posibilidad de estudiar interpretación con cursos “a la carta”, es decir, que se adaptan en número de horas y nivel de conocimiento a las necesidades y características del alumno/a Olivia Potel, Francia Cursos de interpretación, febrero 2013
