What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
Students should have completed Spanish 1 module: 1 or have an equivalent knowledge of Spanish.
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.
