Check out the websites of the schools offering the Spanish language:

Las Lilas http://www.laslilasschool.com/
[Las Lilas prepares students for and administers Spain’s official DELE (Diplomas de Español como Lengua Extranjera/Diplomas of Spanish as a Foreign Language) examination.]

Berlitz http://www.berlitz.com.sg/
BridgeSA http://www.bridgesa.net/LearnSpanish.html
Cambridge http://www.cambridge.com.sg/languages/spanish.htm
Coleman http://www.amigosenclase.com/
inlingua http://www.inlinguaasia.com/pt_spanish.htm
NUS Extension http://www.nus.edu.sg/nex/PE/Languages/ ... el%201.htm

In general, with regard to the selection of a suitable language school, it may be useful to consider the following:

Student
• Where are you at this point?
• What do you hope to achieve?
• Is the school capable of helping you achieve your goals?

School
• Are the teachers trained and qualified to teach the Spanish language?
• Are they native Spanish speakers?
• Is the school itself specialized in this language? How many teachers do they have in their Spanish department?
• What materials and teaching methods do they use?
• How many hours of lectures, tutorials and conversation practice sessions are there?
• What is the student:staff ratio in each class?

Depending on which factors are of significance to you, you may like to give different weightage to each factor and hence come up with selection criteria that are suited to your needs.

I am also interested. Have been in Latin America for the last month and am in love with the place. I want to learn Spanish when I come back to Singapore. Would prefer Mexican Spanish, if possible. Keep me updated too! Thanks!

Hi all, I've done my beginner's course in Spanish at the In Lingua institute at Orchard. The teachers are native speakers, and the course material is quite good. Planning to take up the mid-level course soon. You guys should check it out!

Hi all,

I dunno if this thread is still on, but I am looking at obtaining some form of certification in spanish before I get to college but am clueless as to which of the abovementioned schools offer what.

Would anyone point me in the right direction as to which offers the certification I want? I did 2 years of Spanish ab initio during my IB years a year ago.

Anyone taking classes in certification currently, ur comments are highly valued! And if anyone is also interested in making a new Spanish-speakin friend, do drop me a line at dark_claw5@hotmail.com

Muchas gracias!

Alexito

Thanks for the recommendations, but what are the rates like? And also, they offer the DELE at the end of the course right? Is that the equivalent of TOEFL? I am looking more of a diploma equivalent, and not just a certification of completion similar to that of TOEFL or SATs.

Can someone care to verify?

Many thanks!
