What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
The course is suitable for learners who have studied Spanish for a year or so in the past but need to revise before joining year two of Spanish. This course might also be suitable if you have not learnt Spanish in class but have the equivalent knowledge.

You will also need to be able to respond to simple instructions and read course documents in English and be at ease with the use of number for daily activities (e.g. using money, telling the time, etc.).
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.
Homework is highly recommended to consolidate learning.
