Whether you are interested in learning Spanish for travelling, working abroad or simply give your brain a boost, we will teach you the basic structures and vocabulary of the target language in order to understand simple daily situations.
Learning another language means to explore other cultures and to know a different style of communication.
We make learning an exciting and engaging experience with effective ways to develop your language skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. The lessons are focused on communication and cultural aspects.
All our courses take place in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere.
This course is an introduction to the Spanish language and it is perfectly suited to those looking to get a grasp of the basic rules of the language.
It consists of one evening class a week of 2 hours (with a break of 10 minutes), for a total of 8 weeks which is ideal for those with various commitments or working full-time.
You will learn the alphabet and sounds, numbers, how to introduce yourself, countries and nationalities, professions and places of work, family members and ordering drink and food alongside basic structure of the target language.
Classroom activities will include:
Pair and group work
Work on pronunciation and intonation
Listening to audio clips
Grammar in context.
We provide handouts to work on during the course. We also work with a coursebook that we lend to each student for the duration of the course. A deposit towards the book will be required and it will be returned at the end of the course.
You will need to bring a notepad and pen.
A small Spanish-English/English-Spanish dictionary would be very useful.
All our language courses are taught by qualified native speakers with broad teaching experience and a passion to teach their language and culture.
Our courses are taught at progressive levels. If you have no prior knowledge you must start at Beginner 1 in the autumn.
