Origin is a Spanish Language School for foreign people, where we organize different types of courses to learn Spanish language in the city of Burgos, very near the capital of Spain: Madrid, in the region of Castilla y León.
It is called in English “Origin” (Origen) referring to Burgos as the place where Spanish itself has its origins, as evidenced by the first Romance words written in the cartularies of Valpuesta in the remote IX century, but also in other documents found in the province of Burgos.
Burgos is a cultural city with many attractions. It is even World Heritage for three reasons: its cathedral and old town, the Atapuerca site and the Way of Saint James. He was also the European City of Gastronomy in 2013 for its culinary delights.
The School was born in 2014 and we mainly teach classroom courses of Spanish language following the levels specified in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
The classes are for people of any culture who have established residence here (professionals workers and students), tourists staying at Burgos for short periods of time (pilgrims included) and for people coming from other countries to study Spanish.
In our courses are welcome children, young and old people. We adapt to your requirements and time availability. The School is open during the whole year offering different courses and activities in during winter and summer.
Our aim is to provide students with appropiate Spanish language resources in real communicative situations. We also teach other three skills: listening,reading and writing. For this purpose, we use accredited educational materials, games and digital resources. We give priority to group dynamics from individual ones. Furthermore, the teachers of our school try to make the learning process a funny and practical experience using an up to dated methods. We also organize outdoor activities, parties and cultural events weekly.
At Origin School we use an Holistic Education Method paying particular attention to the social and emotional side of the learning process of the students; in fact, we have qualified personnel.
Another important aspect of the School is that was born with a Corporate Social Responsibility. This means that our interests go over the economic sphere and perform specific actions for cultural and tourist development of the city of Burgos.
