What happens if I miss a class?
We have designed our method to be structured but also flexible. All lessons are self-contained, meaning you can attend a lesson with any other group, if timing permits.
If this is not a possibility then we can offer you a 1:1 catch up lesson at a 35% discount from our standard tuition for Private Lessons.
We also have pre-recorded classes that you can watch, in lieu of attending the real-time lessons.
Will I be ready for the DELE Exam after this course?
You will not be ready for the DELE until you have completed the A1 Level of Spanish, which is equivalent to our Madrid (A1.1) module (18 hours of real-time lessons), followed by the Barcelona (A1.2) and Sevilla (A1.3) modules.
We also recommend at least 10 hours of targeted DELE preparation prior to the test, to sharpen yourself on exam-specific skills.
Can I sign up for the entire Spain (A1) Level?
Yes! You can save 12% on your tuition by confirming your spot for our first three modules: Madrid, Barcelona, and Sevilla.

How far can I go with Comunica?
There are a total of 6 levels, following the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).
- A1 & A2, beginner
- B1 & B2, intermediate
- C1 & C2, advanced
Each level is then divided into sub-levels, which are called modules. Average classroom learning hours per module = 16. With Comunica, each module is named after a Hispanic city. You will start your journey at MADRID (A1.1) and finish it in BUENOS AIRES (C2.7).
What are the payment terms?
For greater savings students are invited to pay for their complete module, though monthly installments are also accepted. Get in touch to ask about promotions and discounts.
How long does it take to complete a module/level?
It is entirely up to you! With Comunica, you can decide which learning pace is best for you. We propose a standard pace of 11 weeks per module but you have complete flexibility to decide if you want to learn faster or slower!
How much digital work and how much real-time learning is there?
Each lesson has self-paced digital components & quizzes and real-time lessons. Both elements are completely intertwined and complement each other. Approximately 35% of your total learning time will be done digitally and 65% in the lessons with your teacher and classmates.
What if I miss a class?
Do not worry. With Comunica, you will have multiple options and times available to register for every class. Once you are ready and want to attend your next class, you can look for available slots and register for the one most convenient to you!
Will I really learn Spanish?
Absolutely. This is our promise to you: you will learn, and moreover, you will enjoy your learning!
Do I get a certificate acknowledging my Spanish level?
Yes. You will receive a Spanish World certificate at the end of each module. In addition, after finishing a complete level, you’ll be prepared to take the Cervantes Institute exam to receive a non-expiring official certification of your Spanish competence.
What do our students say?
I have studied many languages and this is the first time I am part of a teaching method so sophisticated, diverse and engaging as Comunica…Online content allows you to practice all the skills of the language as many times as you want. I am a screen writer myself and the sitcom they have produced “Buena Onda” is of the highest quality.
I feel that I am overall having the best experience at Spanish World and learning so much. There is nothing I don´t like about it, the teachers, the classmates, the app, the flexibility, the quizzes and all the practice content, the videos, everything fits perfectly. I can also see my progression over the space of 2 months and I am thankful for the customer service I get from everyone.
It is a very refreshing way to study a language and I am very motivated to continue doing it, as I am definitely learning a lot. My only concern is the side of the font for the handbook or cuaderno de viaje, but the content in it, as well as the digital platform, is excellent.
My Spanish has improved rapidly after taking classes at Spanish World for just over a year. It gave me confidence to speak Spanish with native speakers!
