- 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.
We will contact you with joining instructions before your course starts.
What will we cover?
Topics: work; biographies and CVs; cities of the future, environment, current affairs, customs and habits at work.
Grammar: quantifiers, impersonals, structures to express obligation, prohibition, simple past, imperfect, phrasal verbs (empezar a, acabar de, volver a, etc.), simple future.
What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...
- Express obligation or prohibition
- Talk about customs and habits at work
- Give opinions about the future of cities, environment, education
- Talk about facts and events in your life with increased fluency.
What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
Students should have completed Spanish 2 upper, studied Spanish for 3 years recently 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.
It is also essential that you have some knowledge of basic grammar terminology such as: a verb, a noun and conjugation. It would be helpful if you had knowledge of more intermediate grammar terminology such as: prepositions, direct and indirect pronouns, subjunctive, main and subordinate clauses.
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.
