Course details

Brief Description

This is a course for improvers where you will learn how to communicate effectively in everyday situations in Spanish speaking countries (Spain and 20 Latin American countries). We believe that learning is an active constructive process; learning through action! We think that speaking is one of the most important ways to learn and boost confidence, so we encourage students to consolidate what they have learnt through role play and conversation. Oral and written interactions, listening comprehension, reading, oral and written expression; learn to use! All learners’ interests, needs and goals will be taken into consideration to make the learning experience appealing and meaningful.
The course is priced for 10 weeks (one term); To complete the full course and cover all the learning outcomes listed below you will need to attend both terms (there is no obligation to attend more than one term).
