ABOUT CORPORATE SPANISH

Businesses need to be able to communicate in different languages in order to establish and build relationships with foreign speaking customers locally and globally. The ability to fluently converse with Spanish-speaking business creates opportunities and breaks down cultural barriers.

Changes in the global marketplace and work force demographics accentuate the need to leverage human capital as a competitive differentiator.

Our corporate Spanish course is tailored according to your requirements whether it is project-specific or for general company or team building purposes. We are flexible and adapt to your requirements.

Our proficiency-based approach addresses a broad spectrum of learning styles and focuses on building speaking proficiency through a combination of instructional techniques.

At Mi Casa we place the emphasis on personal, student-directed instruction through our qualified facilitators.

TESTIMONIALS

Acciona Energia

"We have started the process of learning Spanish at another institution with not much success. As a Spanish-owned company, it was of utmost importance that our staff has at least a basic understanding of the language, but because of our previous failed attempt with a school of a similar name, we were very sceptical investing more money into such a project.

From the very first day Mi Casa staff arrived at our premises, we realised that these guys were in a complete different league than the previous service provider. The appearance of their staff, the professionality in their conduct, the well-presented course material; the list goes on. These guys looked like they meant business and they did!

A few months later, most staff in the training program is conversing in Spanish and our Directors cannot be more pleased with this investment. What also contributed to the success was that Mi Casa also helped us to monitor our staffs’ progress together with our HR Department. We highly recommend Mi Casa of Language to any Company or individual."

“We have been taking private Portuguese language classes with Mi Casa for a while now and the prices and quality of teaching offered by Mi Casa of Languages surpasses any other institution in Cape Town. We need Portuguese for work purposes; being analysts. Our experience with Mi Casa of Languages has been excellent. It's always a pleasure dealing with Antonio and Melita on the admin side and they're always accommodating and eager to assist. Our teacher is always reliable, and over time, we've developed a great relationship with Mi Casa and our Portuguese has improved significantly. We highly recommend Mi Casa of Languages to anyone wanting to learn Portuguese or Spanish; from business people to individuals just interested in the region.”

“Our experience with Mi Casa of Languages has been a positive one from day one. I logged enquiries for corporate lessons with 5 service providers. I ranked the replies in terms of response time, professionalism, flexibility, value for money and efficiency. Mi Casa came out tops. They were also able to accommodate our very busy schedules. For us this is a critical factor, especially in the corporate sector where operations can change from one day to the other, without notice. Antonio and his team made a tremendous effort to always accommodate any request for change that we made, and never made us feel like a nuisance. Their response time on emails and phone calls is minimal and their organisational skills in coordinating lesson times are extraordinary.

I highly recommend Mi Casa of Languages to anyone wishing to learn Spanish or Portuguese."

“Mi Casa of Languages has been our Portuguese Language partner since 2012; and what an absolute pleasure it is dealing with such professionals. We consider Mi Casa to be a department within our firm. They are always on hand for any quick and thorough translations and our HR department would not have been able to function optimally without their assistance with our Angolan and Mozambique Job placements, application screening and communication facilitation. Over the years, many of our staff has completed their Language courses which have added to their skills set and overall worth to the company. Mi Casa goes beyond the call of duty and because of their record turnaround time, no challenge is ever too big. We are looking forward to many years of partnership and highly recommend Mi Casa to any business.”

"Our staff's jobs entail a great deal of travelling... not ideal when you are trying to learn a new language, but Mi Casa has been great. They provide strong, structured group lessons but are also flexible enough to provide us with the flexibility needed when the staff travels, always providing alternatives, catch-up classes and innovative solutions... ideal for corporate students who can't always commit to the same time each week.

The lecturers are professional, well versed and a true asset."

"Latin America is a large market for us and we have wanted to learn Spanish for business purposes. Mi Casa has been extremely accommodating in terms of fitting in with our busy schedules and our frequent travels without losing track of where we were at and what to do next. Our teacher, Julio (Head of Academics @ Mi Casa) challenges us regularly; he is not easily satisfied with mediocre progress which is precisely what we need. Classes are interactive, challenging yet easy to follow, funny and time always goes by too fast.

We would not swap our Julio for any other teacher or language school."

"We are enjoying our lessons tremendously and the progress is phenomenal. I am sure it is not easy for our teacher to teach a bunch of 50+ year olds a new language, yet we have managed to learn so much in such a short time.

Mi Casa has provided us with an excellent teacher, with the world of patience and we cannot thank Mi Casa enough for the excellent service they are providing us in teaching us Portuguese!

We are enjoying every moment and the moral in the office has increased significantly since we have been learning, as our lessons also doubles up as a team-building exercise!"

"EE is an International Events and Conferencing company and we have worked a number of International Sporting events, (World Cup 2014 and Olympics 2016) where Mi Casa of Languages has played an integral role in our planning and communication.

Mi Casa is professional and provides top class support and training. The teachers are intellectuals and their passion for their languages and cultures are very apparent.

Our Language course progressed quickly and in 3 short months we feel that the knowledge gained in the course has been worth every cent!

We highly recommend Mi Casa, especially to South African businesses with interests in Portuguese speaking countries in Africa and abroad. They are accommodating and flexible and will ensure that you gain as much as possible from your investment in learning Portuguese (or Spanish of course!)"

"We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Mi Casa of Languages as they made each session meaningful and entertaining. Our teacher always adds a personal touch as he is genuinely interested in you succeeding in learning the language. We also learnt an enormous amount about the Brazilian culture as we would often discuss current affairs in Brazil, and Julio’s experiences growing up and living in Brazil – a real insight into the people and heritage behind the language.

In terms of price, we found Mi Casa to be the most competitive and in terms of the organisation, we found Mi Casa to be a well-oiled machine; extremely efficient, accommodating and we could not fault them on anything."

"We completed a 2 week intensive Portuguese course with Mi Casa, due to time constraints. We learned the structure and the rules of written and spoken Portuguese to level 1, enough to understand Portuguese speaking people in Angola. (In only two weeks!)

The course gave us the framework of learning Portuguese that we could use on our own to progress further in our Portuguese studies where we are based in Angola; by talking to Portuguese speaking people, watching TV and reading.

I am extremely satisfied with the Mi Casa school methodology and the professionalism of its teachers. Our expectations were exceeded."

"The School is well located and very easy to access. We found the teachers to be very well experienced and educated, as most of our staff speak atleast one Latin Language – so we are familiar with the grammatical structures. They cater for every student’s individual needs and are always willing to assist anytime.

The teaching style is friendly, warm and extremely professional.

We will definitely recommend anyone from any background who wishes to learn a foreign language, as it’s really beneficial and progress is very quick."

Benefits

Beginners Level

This level is aimed at students who have never had any exposure to the language, or have had some exposure, but never formally learned the language. We – literally – start from the ABC and then start to build and structure sentences. A little bit of vocab is added with every lesson; so you gradually become familiar and competent to deal with predictable and simple everyday tasks.

At the end of this level you will be able to understand, verbalise, read and write short, simple texts containing familiar vocabulary including basic terminology. The student will also understand and verbalise clear instructions, commonly used everyday phrases and expressions related to the areas of experience relevant to the student (including basic information about themselves, their families, at work, at home, animals, the calendar, fashion, food and drink, verbs, professions, locations, emotions, asking questions, expressing feelings etc.)

With our structured and easy to follow methodology, you will be able to form your own sentences (in the present tense) from as early as your 5th lesson.

Intermediate Level

During this level, the language learning process becomes even more interesting and enjoyable. The Beginners level focusses on the very basics and forms the foundation of the new language. During the Intermediate level – even though still forming part of the foundation phase – sentence structure becomes more elaborate, resulting in better and clearer expression and communication. (Reading, writing and speaking)

During this level, we continue with grammatical studies, but more emphasis is placed on communication.

After this level, the student will be able to describe experiences and events, hopes and ambitions and briefly give reasons and explanations for opinions and plans.

The student can deal with most situations which are likely to arise when travelling or entertaining. The student can establish social contact in formal and informal situations and understand the gist of clear texts, in standard language, if they involve well-known topics related to work, studies or leisure.

Advance Level

The purpose of learning a new language is to eventually speak, read and write the new language. This is the most exciting level when it comes to learning a new language at Mi Casa of Languages, as this level is mostly dedicated to putting what has been learnt thus far into practise during Communication.

After the level, the student will have the ability to interact with native speakers with a sufficient degree of fluency and spontaneity to enable easy and natural communication between interlocutors; produce clear and detailed texts about various topics, defend an opinion about general topics and lastly, understand the gist of complex texts about both concrete and abstract topics, including technical texts (provided they are within the candidate’s area of expertise – in the case of learning business Vocabulary).

The student will also have sufficient linguistic competence to understand a wide variety of lengthy, and somewhat demanding texts, as well as to grasp implicit meaning in the same; to express themselves and spontaneously without apparent effort to find the right words; to be able to use the language flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes; and finally, to be able to produce clear, well-structured and detailed texts about topics of some complexity, correctly using mechanisms of organization, articulation and cohesion in the text.

Communication Levels

The Communication levels consist of three additional levels which range from Basic every day Communication to very complexed Business Spanish / Portuguese.

The Communication levels are presented either in Groups or as Private tutoring and focus on the areas students want to work on / excel in or areas the student struggled with during the initial three levels and require assistance with.

These levels are highly recommended as a method to maintain and keep the language “alive” after students have completed their formal studies; as many students don’t have Spanish or Portuguese friends to talk with afterwards and eventually loose what they have learned due to them not being exposed to the language as frequently as during their courses.

These levels are also a perfect option for students who have studied the language in the past but had a gap in-between or for students that have lived in Spanish or Portuguese speaking countries where they have learned the language, but now find themselves back in South Africa and they need to revise and keep up with the language.
