Summer Intensives, January 13-24, 2020

These are held several times a week over two weeks - 7.5-hour or 15-hour courses as well as 2-hr / 3-hr Workshops. Generally the first 2 or 3 levels are offered in the afternoons (2-5pm) or evenings (6-9pm).

As well as our regular language courses, Conversation courses for a range of levels are available - great to practise what you've learnt, and a good way to start the year!

Due to their intensive nature they are really good for consolidating material already learnt, as well as building level and confidence quickly.

You may even wish to do two at once! There are discounts for early enrolment (up to one month, and two weeks), as well as special fees for multiple courses, whether taken concurrently or consecutively (you'll find those in the online cart).


Students say ...

  • I am heading to South America … where I'll travel/volunteer for 6 months, and I'm going with a fantastic base of Spanish to build on. Thanks so much for having me in the Northcote Saturday morning classes, I've really enjoyed it. If time permits, I hope I may be able to continue some study with El Patio upon my return next year, you guys are fantastic :)​ - Isabelle Harding
