Stage 1 These classes are for complete beginners. They cover topics such as introducing oneself, (name, nationality, numbers, profession…) as well as topics, which tourists would encounter when travelling in a country where the language is spoken. It is assumed that participants have no experience in the language.
Stage 2 Being comfortable with basic greetings and introductions, students embarking on our stage 2 course will be able to increase their confidence in dealing with more holiday situations as well as gaining a greater cultural understanding. The lessons will comprise a range of activities including reading, listening and speaking activities.
Stage 2/3 This course offers a natural progression for students who have completed either stage 1 or stage 2 and will focus on adding more vocabulary and structure to their existing knowledge. Students will also gain in confidence in using the language when on holidays in a Spanish speaking country.
Stage 3/4 This course is a natural progression for students who have completed the previous stages. It will carry on exploring holiday situations, adding more content to the conversations that could be encountered when travelling to a Spanish-speaking country. During the course you will find that your vocabulary, grammar and confidence will increase.
There is no exam but you will be informally assessed throughout the course. Two hour sessions take place every week.
