The trimester program can accommodate students at beginning, high beginning, low intermediate, intermediate, high intermediate, advanced, high advanced, and superior Spanish language levels. The program consists of three Spanish language modules, each covering the skills of writing, reading, speaking and listening. All students are required to take a Spanish language placement exam upon arrival in Granada. The exam will indicate each student's language proficiency level, and will determine the level of the first module in which the student is eligible to enroll. At the end of each module, students may advance to the next level, and will most likely complete 3 language levels (for example: low intermediate, intermediate, high intermediate) during the program. Please note, however, that level advancement is not automatic. Students will advance to the next level if their language acquisition skills demonstrate readiness and the CLM deems the advancement appropriate. Classmates are international students, the majority of whom are North American.
