I studied Spanish in Instituto Cervantes de Manila in 2010. The school is a non-profit organization funded by the spanish government since 1991. It is the largest organization in the world dedicated to the teaching of the Spanish language and increasing knowledge of Spanish and Latin-American culture. At present, Instituto Cervantes has 77 centres in 44 different countries.
I learned a lot doing the intensive classes 3 times a week for 3 hours a day. Each level has 30 hours which you can choose from your preferred schedule. You may find the schedule below.
The school is using a holistic curriculum in approach to make sure that every student will understand each lesson. Every level has an evaluation to ensure that you are ready to continue to the next level. Though, there are challenges, the professors are well prudent in teaching the language without harassing the learning capability of each students.
For beginners I suggest that you go on intensive classes. They offer classes suited to your available time.
Currently, below are the schedule this year. The schedule is often changing depending on the availability of the classes each level. In order for the class to continue you need to complete 10 students enrolled for each level.

Why study Spanish?
There are a lot of reasons why learning a language will benefit you. I had the privilege in studying Spanish in Instituto Cervantes de Manila. In the Philippines there are only about 5% of the Filipinos who use the language. I was working in a call center industry for 3 years when I learned about the advent of bilingual jobs which offer a higher paying salary. Because of this I started planning for my schedule in order for me to attend to spanish classes in Instituto Cervantes de Manila. (continue reading…)
