Needs Analysis for Spanish Medical Learners

Let us know exactly what your needs and wants are so we can do all we can for you. Before coming to Delta Language School in Santander, Spain, you will take a very short test and provide us a brief summary of how you use Spanish at work and what you would like to achieve during your Spanish Course with us.

When you begin your class, a further needs analysis will take place. During this process you can decide, with the assistance of your teacher, the best way to spend your time at Delta Language School. This assistance will continue during all of your course, which can be modified as your needs may change.
