Spanish Course

Online Spanish course

As part of your benefits as a volunteer, we offer access to an online Spanish course. It includes two levels: basic/intermediate and advanced, from which you can choose according to your current Spanish level and expectations. Both levels of the course provide different tools that include reading, listening and writing skills (through the supporting tasks) with a focus on Chilean culture and linguistic nuances related to our country.

Through the development of the course, your tutor will send you different tasks that you need to complete in order to consider the course completed.

Below, you will find the link to both levels of the course, in order to assess them before deciding which course fits you best:

Once you arrive in Santiago, you will receive more information about the course during the orientation week. Also, you will have specific deadlines in order to subscribe to the course before starting it, which are listed below:
