Spanish: beginners 2: FULL
Who is this course for?
It is a follow on to the Beginners 1 course.
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?
Learning a language can be daunting on your own. It’s much more fun with a supportive tutor and a group, where you can practice with each other and share the joys of learning a new language.
This course will introduce you to Spanish pronunciation and simple everyday phrases and expressions.
This is a practical course. There will be dialogues, listening, reading and writing tasks.
You will need a laptop / PC / phone / tablet with a camera and microphone/headphones and a good internet connection.
This 8 – 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.

Your tutor will support you throughout the course through online face to face discussions and written feedback on your progress. You will work with your tutor on your personal goals within the structure of the course.
