Description

What is the course about?

The course aims to enable students to communicate in Catalan in everyday situations.

What will we cover?

Telephone conversations, entertaiment and events, making suggestions, making invitations, arranging appointments, refusing suggestions, meals and food, giving directions, talking about the past.

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

- answer the phone
- arrange appointments and make invitations (accept and refuse)
- go to the restaurant
- ask for and give directions
- explain what you did on your holidays
- talk about your life.

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

Students should have completed Catalan 1: module 2 or have an equivalent level of Catalan.

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. You will need to be at ease with the use of numbers for daily activities (e.g. using money, telling the time, using the 24 hour clock, reading timetables). It would also be helpful if you had some knowledge of basic grammar terminology such as: a verb, a noun and conjugation.

The course is based on the communicative approach:

- active students’ interaction
