¡Hola a todos!
We hope you are all keeping well and enjoying your summer? We also hope you are still practising your Spanish too? I have updated the general categories in the Forum so do take a look especially at all the Spanish TV and radio links I have added in the Para Ver y Escuchar category.
We are making plans to return in a more 'normal' style with our classes in September 🤞 but we will still be keeping many of our safety measures in place for a little while longer.
Growing our familia
We will be offering free trials to new students again in September and have 6 groups starting new courses next term!!!!!! 2 x A1 Beginner groups, 1 x new A2 Lower-Intermediate, 1 x 2 x new B1 Intermediate and 1 x B2 Lower-Advanced 👏 👏 please share this email with the timetable and info with your friends and family or refer them to the updated Adult Classes page of the website as we would love for more students to join the Todo el Mundo Familia in September and if your group was small before the holidays, then we will need more students to be able to continue.
Your group - where and what will we be learning?
We have kept groups in the same slots as before and will be returning lots more groups to the New Oriel Hall, all of our morning groups including a new beginner group and Wednesday evenings will be back in our usual home with Elena as their teacher.
I have kept two groups online because of students preferences and costings, Honduras will continue with Andrea online on Mondays until she begins her masters at the end of October when I hope the lovely Sofia will take on this group. Raul’s Grupo Colombia will also continue online on Thursday evenings and plan to meet up regularly at students homes and even in bars or restaurants and Honduras will be able to do the same once they switch to more local teacher.
We will launch a new evenings beginner group at Bath Academy on Thursdays with Elena so please do spread the word about this, as again new students can try for free!
Your teacher will continue to plan classes based on the topics in our course book but continue to supplement this with their own choices of activities and resources. There are new course overviews based on the topics and areas of learning covered in each of the Aula Internacional books which cover all the requirements of a distinctive CEFR level.
Students should have a copy of the current textbook or membership to Campus Difusion as the teachers all like to set tasks from these books for homework to reinforce learning between lessons. In an ideal world we would recommend students have both!
All students are always welcome to speak to their teacher or contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org with suggestions for lesson content and activities.
Si tienes una problema
If your class returning to the classroom is going to be a problem for you please get in touch as you can always join one of the other groups which is remaining online instead - Honduras are nearing the end of Aula 3 (B1) and Colombia are nearing the end of Aula 2 (A2) and will begin B1 in October/November.
Term dates and fees
The new term will begin from 13th September and run for 14 weeks (rather than 15) with a total of 37 lessons and 3 enrichment events during the 2021-22 academic year.
Lesson for groups of 5-8 will be for 1.5hrs, lessons for groups of 4 will be for 1hr, 3 or less will run as private tuition.
Going forwards only the online groups will be recorded on Zoom, and we will review this before December.
Fees are going up next term as I am giving our wonderful teachers a long awaited well deserved pay rise, each venues is priced differently based on costs.
New Oriel Hall £15 per class
Online £13 per class
Bath Academy £18 per class
The three enrichment weeks will be charged to all students at £10 as we will run a reduced timetable (as historically many students are away on holiday these weeks) and really hope to be able offer some super fun and sociable events this academic year!
3 ways to re-enrol
📩Email email@example.com and let us know if you would like to be a. invoiced for the deposit or the full term or b. if you have had a DD in the past, and would like to be added to the 11 month DD plan.
🛒You can book online paying a deposit (all groups listed at the bottom of the page), we will then invoice for the balance in full and offer 3 or 10 month DD plans once term begins.
💻We also have an 11 month direct debit plan to spread the cost of the academic year. But you must sign up by 25th August. You can use the links below to set this up, we then get a notification and will book you in.

Online - 11 x £47
If you are unsure or have any questions on any of the above, also any feedback on what you would like to cover in your first few lessons back, then comment on this post or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
