10 Weeks - 15 hs
Oct 18, 2017
Important 2017: due to students’ feedback we are extended our courses to 10 weeks instead of 8. This will allow us to add more speaking practice during our courses. Please note the reason why fees are increasing from Jan 2017.
This first course is for students who have no experience with Spanish. Our classes are focused on speaking so you will be speaking Spanish from the start. We like to provide a fun and relaxed environment where students are able to have fun and introduce themselves to the culture.
Games and real-life role-plays are a must in our classes and students really enjoy them; it does make a difference to learn and practice the language just as it is in real life!
You will learn: greetings, give and ask personal details, ask to repeat what someone just said, slow down and ask for words or equivalents in Spanish, feminine and masculine genre, conjugations -AR, -ER and -IR, the Present tense, irregular verbs “ser, tener, llamarse, querer, estar”, numbers and money, the alphabet, nationalities and countries, personal pronouns, describe places, verb “hay”, talk about weather, question words, basic orders in restaurants and shops.
This is an introductory A1 according to the Common European Framework of References for Languages. You will need the book Aula Internacional 1 – Nueva Edicion. Extra material (i.e. extra photocopies – not book copies) will be supplied by your teacher. A test will be provided at the end of the course to evaluate your grammar, vocabulary, oral and listening abilities; you will do part of the test in your own time and send it by email to the teacher to be assessed.
Teachers are qualified language instructors with experience.
