Spanish: beginners 1
Who is this course for?
Have you always wanted to learn Spanish? Do you want to be able to communicate at a basic level when you visit a Spanish speaking country? Then this is the course for you.
Learning a language can be daunting on your own. It’s much more fun with a supportive tutor and a group, where you can practise with each other and share the joys of learning a new language.
This 5 – week Spanish Beginners course will teach you how to exchange information in simple everyday situations.
You will learn how to:
– give and receive basic greetings and personal information.
– tell the time and use numbers and currency
– order and pay for food and drink in a restaurant or café.
– ask for and give directions.
The focus will be on oral communication (speaking and listening) although some reading and writing will also be included.
During the course you will take part in varied activities. These are designed to help you understand and use the language effectively.
You will work individually, in pairs and in small groups, using a variety of learning methods and resources such as role play, audio and video clips.
Homework will provide an opportunity for self-study including the use of online resources.
By the end of the course, you will have gained knowledge in the four skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing.
Support and feedback
You will get continual support and feedback from your tutor throughout the course and have opportunities to discuss and review your progress.
Additional costs and requirements
No experience is necessary.
You’ll need a pen, paper and a ring-binder for storing notes, hand-outs and homework.
At the start of the course your tutor will advise you of any course book that might be required. Please don’t purchase anything before the course.
You may like to bring a drink or refreshments.
Will I have to do anything outside of the session?
Yes, you will need to do some homework activities. These should take about an hour a week.
