What is the course about?

This course will help you to develop and consolidate your speaking skills with a small group of learners (8 students maximum per course). Ideal if you are already attending another course.

This is a live online course. You will need:
- Internet connection. The classes work best with Chrome.
- A computer with microphone and camera is best (e.g. a PC/laptop/iMac/MacBook), or a tablet/iPad/smart phone/iPhone if you don't have a computer.
- Earphones/headphones/speakers.
We will contact you with joining instructions before your course starts.

What will we cover?

The topics will be decided by you and the tutor according to your interests.

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

- express opinion more confidently
- talk about a variety of subjects
- develop your accuracy and fluency
- develop your vocabulary related to a range of topics.

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

You should have studied Spanish for at least 5 years recently. Ideal for students who are currently attending Spanish 4 or 5 courses. If you are not sure about your level, please do not hesitate to contact Languages to have your level assessed on languages@citylit.ac.uk.

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

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

Our courses are characterised by spoken interaction and communication. Typical activities include pair work, group work, role plays and games. A range of resources will be used to support your learning including presentations, hand-outs, and audio-visual material.

As the classes are short, you will have to do some preparation prior to the lesson.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

The material will be provided by the tutor.

When I've finished, what course can I do next?

Any Spanish 5 or Spanish 4/5 course in September.
Please enrol on the next module as soon as possible as spaces cannot be guaranteed.
