Instituto Hemingway updates its Spanish teaching methods
As a Cervantes accredited teaching centre, Instituto Hemingway has decided to update
its teaching methods, utilising the most modern and flexible techniques to place it at the
forefront of Spanish teaching. The chosen method is Prisma (Edinumen), a
communicative method, divided into six levels, Breakthrough (A1), Waystage (A2),
Threshold (B1), Vantage (B2), Effective Operational Proficiency (C1) y Mastery (C2).
Prisma follows the structure of the Common European Framework of Reference for
Languages and Instituto Cervantes´ teaching framework.
Prisma is a communicative and flexible textbook; versatile and varied, its caters to the
individual needs of all students. Focusing on the common difficulties in learning the
Spanish language, it is a dynamic and attractive method for both students and teachers
At Instituto Hemingway, we hope this new textbook will be a valued tool that helps our
students master the Spanish language.
