Praxis Spanish Content Knowledge
The Spanish Content Knowledge Test assesses the language competencies and knowledge needed for a beginning Spanish teacher. CX offers an intensive specialized Spanish course preparation for teacher candidates seeking a teaching license in Spanish or for those teachers candidates who have not yet been able to pass the Praxis Spanish Content Knowledge. Our exam preparation takes places in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala or online through skype.
The topics you will be reviewing with our Spanish teachers are: grammar, syntax, phonology and cultural perspectives in Spanish. Since the instruction is one-on-one, our instructors will be working with you at your own pace.
You are very welcome to bring all the educational materials you consider important to master this test preparation.
You will receive five hours of instruction, five days a week. Living with your family will be an extension of your test preparation because you will have plenty of opportunities to practice your Spanish with the family.
Besides that, we organize daily social and cultural activities which can help to fulfill part of the cultural requirements for this test.
Classes start on any Monday, year-round. If you wish to take this class online, please let us know.
It is very important that you take the exam preparation before you will take the exam because you will increase the opportunities to pass it.
I want to thank Casa Xelaju for helping me prepare for my Spanish Praxis exam, which I passed this fall. The immersion program at the school addressed my needs for using Spanish in practical ways and growing in understanding Central American culture. I also want to especially thank my two teachers, Loly and Lili. Muchas gracias por todo!
