  • Who is it for?

    The course is for people who have acquired elementary grammar and are able to take part in basic conversations by completing a beginners' course or having spent time in a country where the language is spoken. The emphasis is on extending vocabulary and developing grammatical competence.

  • Entry Requirements

    You need a basic understanding of the language. 

    You will be expected to ask and answer questions using verbs in the present tense and take part in conversations.

  • What does the course involve?

    During the course you will develop competence in listening, reading, writing and speaking across a range of real life situations more complex than those at beginners levels. These situations will include: introducing yourself and others, asking and understanding questions related to everyday life, making enquiries and talking about leisure interests, understanding property descriptions, shopping for clothes and other items, explaining problems referring to the past, understanding the weather forecast and talking about past holidays, explaining health problems, accepting and refusing invitations, understanding menus and talking about special occasions.

  • Additional Notes

    We suggest you bring a pen and some paper to take notes.

    It is also recommended you purchase the BBC talk Spanish 2 book as it is used in lessons and for home learning. This is the latest edition but you can use either.
