Online Educational Resources

Telemachus Project

Spanish Institute, in an immediate response to the new situation that we are living in, has launched our Online Educational Resources with overwhelming success. We have been offering courses abroad to the planet's educational community since 1982 and we still stand strong, our commitment to education now goes even further.

Among our concerns, distance training has always been present, has become and is part of our objectives, so we are turning all our efforts into what we have called the Telemachus Project.

Telemachus, according to Greek mythology, was the son of Ulysses. Telemachus is known as one who fights from afar and what better name for our distance training program.

The goal of the Telemachus project is to give anyone the possibility to study Spanish, whenever they want and from anywhere on the planet. It is a firm step forward that marks a new horizon, new challenges and solutions in what moves us, our passion; teaching.

¡Buen provecho!

The goal of this workshop is to bring students closer to a celebration with years of tradition in Spain. This religious celebration takes place everywhere in the country but it is specially known the way they celebrate it in Andalucía and more specifically in Seville: The Holy Week. Students will get to know this celebration through images and videos that will make them travel there and become the protagonist of this experience with the guide of the teacher.

With this workshop we want to take students to one the most famous spring festivities in Spain. It is celebrated in Sevilla and Sevillanos wait for this with enthusiasm the whole year long: La Feria de Abril.

Students will have the chance to learn about the origin of this fun celebration that started as a cattle sales fair and how it developed into a “fiesta” that gathers people from all over the world.

To finish the workshop we will even show you some basic steps of the folk dance so you can feel part of the party.

The main goal of this workshop is to explain to students about this controversial celebration. We are providing them with objective information to help them think about this Spanish tradition. By the end of the workshop students might get their own opinions, against or in favor, and share them in debate with the class.
