Beginners
 

The Beginners course offers a useful introduction to the Spanish language and the diverse cultures of the Spanish-speaking world. Whether you require a language for work, to get by on holiday abroad or whether you just enjoy learning about other countries and different cultures, this course will benefit you. The course assumes no prior knowledge of Spanish. All you need is an enthusiasm for learning the language and for learning about other cultures. The course runs on Wednesday evenings.

 

Elementary
 

​​The Elementary course runs on Wednesday evenings and is for learners who wish to progress beyond a basic level of Spanish and find out more about the language and cultures of the countries where Spanish is spoken. If you have already completed a Spanish for Beginners course, then this course will be the obvious next step for you. Alternatively, you may feel that you are not yet ready for an Intermediate course and would prefer to consolidate your learning to date. At this level, you will develop your understanding of the Spanish language and you will learn how to talk about events in the past, present and future.

Intermediate
 

The Intermediate course runs on Monday evenings. This course is for learners who are aiming to develop their confidence and improve their ability to communicate in Spanish. Learners will broaden their ability to speak about a range of different topics and gain a more in-depth knowledge of the countries, cultures and customs to be found in the Spanish-speaking world. The focus will be on improving your speaking and listening skills but the course will also give you an opportunity to develop your skills in reading and writing. The course will also aim to improve your vocabulary and grammar in order to consolidate your understanding of Spanish. 

Advanced
 

The Advanced course runs on Tuesday evenings and is aimed at learners who can already converse in Spanish and are seeking to improve their level of fluency in the target language. Learners will be expected to talk about a range of topics and have a good knowledge of various aspects of Spanish and Latin American culture. Classes will be delivered in the target language only.
