This is a live online course. You will need:

- Earphones/headphones/speakers.
We will contact you with joining instructions before your course starts.

What will we cover?

Telling the time, daily routine, hobbies, likes and dislikes, description of towns, description of your home, locating things and places, shopping, food.
Present tense, pronouns, prepositions, numerals, quantities, modal verbs.

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

- ask for and tell the time

- talk about your daily routine and your hobbies

- express likes and dislikes

- describe where you live (your town and your home)

- go to the market.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

Students should have completed Catalan 1: module 1 or have an equivalent level.

For further details of the specific foreign language skills required for this level, please see the languages self-assessment chart at the start of the languages section of our course guide or at http://www.citylit.ac.uk/self-assess-your-level.
You will also need to be able to respond to simple instructions and explanations, as well as read course documents, in English.
