Course Description

This course is designed for complete beginners and helps you acquire basic survival skills in the language. Although the main emphasis will be on speaking Spanish, you will also develop your listening and reading comprehension. You will be introduced to the way modern Spanish speakers use their language to talk about everyday activities and ideas; in particular, the use of the two Spanish ‘to be’ verbs (ser and estar) which express different shades of meaning. Although homework is not a requirement of the course, you will gain greater satisfaction if you are able and prepared to invest some time on study between sessions.

Some of the topics covered are:

•           Greetings

•           Giving information about yourself

•           Describing people and places

•           Asking for and giving directions

•           Shopping for food

•           Daily routine

On completion students will be able to:

•           Recognise familiar words and basic phrases about yourself, family and common locations

•           Understand simple notices and posters

•           Use simple phrases and sentences to describe where you live and the people you know

•           Ask and answer simple questions relating to your needs

•           Reach A1 (listening and speaking skills) in the Common European Framework of Reference
