I took a look at the webpage as always. It is a nicely created containing the methodology, types of courses, locations, etc. A link is available on the opening page for teachers.
The classes are developed so that the students have respect for the teachers. The emphasis is on speaking, listening, and communication. Most students have a level between intermediate and first certificate. Cambridge teaches all levels of all ages.
An entrance test is given to all students. For young students, the motto is firm, but friendly. As a general rule, there are few discipline problems.
An on-site teacher can expect a core schedule very similar to the one listed below. This is for a nine month period ranging from October 1 to June 30. Teachers receive their own classes and their own classrooms. It gives teachers and students the opportunity to get to know one another while allowing the teachers to watch the students improve over the year.
A book is chosen at the beginning of the year based on a 100 hour full-year curriculum. Each class has a syllabus, but teachers have flexibility to use supplemental materials. The usual percentage is 60% book usage and 40% supplemental materials.
Monday – Thursday:
4:00 pm – 5:30 pm: teenagers
5:30 pm – 7:00 pm: ages seven to fifteen
7:00 pm – 10:00 pm: university students / working professionals
Friday: 5:30 - 7:30 and all ages.

The main office is located Lopez de Hoyos. The facility is small, but not claustrophobic by any means. The walls are clean and yellow. It gave a feeling of brightness. The students are greeted by the receptionist. To the left is a long hallway with all the classrooms sitting off this hall. The classes seat approximately ten students in round-table format with the standard wipe board. There are approximately seven to eight classrooms in each facility. Eight teachers are on-site. A teacher can expect the other facilities to be similar to this one.
Have good materials support, photocopier?
To assist with class preparation, a photocopier is on-site for teachers to use along with books, magazines, portable television/DVD players, and games. A refrigerator and microwave are also available for teachers. A library is offered for students containing books, videos, and magazines. Computers / internet are not a daily source used for class preparation.
