Introducing VICI’s Spanish Discovery Programme
If you’ve got Spanish language ambitions, now’s the time to start getting serious, with our new, one-off Discovery Programme, giving you 25 hours of learning, 2,000+ hours of video tutorials and a whole lot more for £397.
If you’re serious about learning Spanish or improving your existing skills and would like to make significant strides in just 60 days, you’re in luck – our new Discovery Programme is designed to give you everything you need.
Why have we launched a new Programme?
A lot has changed in the last 24 months. We’ve all had time to think in-depth about what we want from our lives, and many of us have changed our hobbies and activities as well as our overall perspectives.
Many people took up language learning during the lockdown, but have reached a natural ceiling thanks to the limitations of the various apps on the market.
Others have rediscovered a love of languages, having neglected their learning for several years.
All kinds of people have realised they want to develop their Spanish language skills without a monthly commitment, and if that’s you too, our Discovery Programme is perfect.
What is the Discovery Programme?
The Discovery Programme is a blended learning package from VICI, combining in-person and online learning, to massively upgrade your Spanish in just two months.
Here’s what you get:
Weekly 90-minute Group Sessions
You’ll get together with your coach and your group for an hour and a half each week, at our Academy in Newbury Town Centre, to learn, practise your language skills, and rapidly improve your ability.
These sessions will give you the perfect opportunity to put your theory into practice, continue to improve your verbal and listening skills and get any in-person guidance you need from your coach whilst having the opportunity to also learn from others.
Fortnightly Private 1:1 Coaching Sessions
Twice a month, you’ll have a private coaching session with your coach – these can take place online or at the Academy in Newbury.
These sessions will last 60 minutes and give you 1:1 coaching on the language of your choice from a fully qualified coach, hugely experienced in drastically improving language ability.
2,000+ Hours of Video Tutorials
In addition to your live sessions, you’ll have plenty of self-study and homework to be getting on with.
In order to help you keep learning at home, you’ll have access to our extensive video library, with over 2,000 hours of video tutorials, all designed to help you achieve your goal and become competent in the language of your choice.
While homework isn’t compulsory, if you want to get the best results from the Discovery Programme, it’s well worth throwing yourself in wholeheartedly.
The Discovery Programme is structured to deliver you your desired result, and your own, personal Learning Diary will ensure that you’re progressing along the structure in the right way.
We’ll post this out to your home as soon as you join the Programme.
Test and Certification*
As the Programme reaches its conclusion, you’ll take a test and receive a formal certification that verifies your language level as recognised by the European Framework for Languages.
Is The Discovery Programme For You?
We’re running the Spanish Discovery Programme at two levels: one for beginners and one for those with a little more experience of the language:
If you’re a novice, the Beginner Discovery Programme is the perfect springboard to get you communicating in Spanish. Examples of successful outcomes include (but are not limited to):
- Understanding everyday sentences, practiced through simple role-play
- Grasping and recognising frequently used expressions related to personal and family information, shopping and local geography
- Communicating simple and routine tasks
If you’ve been harbouring ambitions to learn Spanish for a while but weren’t sure how to go about it, you’re an ideal applicant for the Beginner level.
If you have some knowledge of Spanish and you’re looking to push your language skills to the next level, the Refresher Discovery Programme is the perfect way to make that happen. Examples of successful outcomes include (but are not limited to):
- Building on your existing Spanish skills
- Becoming more comfortable in everyday situations
- Learning how to communicate in different tenses
In short, if you want to sharpen your skills and develop from rusty or hesitant Spanish to more confident communication, you’re an ideal applicant for the Refresher level.
If either of these descriptions sounds familiar, then the Discovery Programme is just right for you!
Nathalie, our director, explains why The Discovery Programme is just the right fit.
The Spanish Discovery Programme begins during the 1st week of April 2022, and we will be accepting applications until 26th March 2022. During your application we’ll ask you whether you’re interested in the Beginner or Refresher level (and if you’re not sure which is right for you we’ll help identify this.)
The investment to join the Discovery Programme is a one-off fee of £397 for 25 hours of learning, 2,000+ hours of video tutorials and a whole lot more! It’s the perfect springboard for students not yet ready to commit to a monthly investment, who nonetheless want to make fast, serious progress.
Entrance into The Discovery Programme is by application only.
Each group will have a maximum of 8 students, and because of the group coaching element, it’s important that each student is at a broadly similar level.
To apply, just email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Discovery”, telling us a little about you and your Spanish language experience, and we’ll be in touch to discuss your requirements and make sure the Discovery Programme will be a great fit.
If you’re not sure, or have questions, drop us an email email@example.com and we’ll be happy to have a no-strings conversation and help you work out whether this is the programme for you!
“If what is stopping you learning a language is the idea of commitment, then this is the answer!
In just a few hours of using this method, I could count in French, greet people, describe items using colours and understand basic questions. Believe me, this is not me bragging about what I can do, this is me sharing how brilliant the instructors at VICI are.
“I heard from friends how brilliant The VICI Language Academy was. I’ve always wanted to learn Spanish but wasn’t sure where to start. I would totally recommend this programme. Blended learning really is the answer and my coach, Esther made herself so available for me and the other students we can only be very grateful. It was really good fun too!”
“I have thoroughly enjoyed learning a new language with VICI over the last couple of years and have been impressed by the dedication, professionalism and expertise of all the staff. The team knows exactly what they are doing and have relentless determination to make it happen, with quality and service always being the key factors.”
