Are you interested in learning Spanish for holidays and social occasions?

This course is for those of you who have completed the beginners' course or who have studied the language for about a year.

You can check your language level with our downloadable guide on this page or check the entry requirements below.

If you would like to take the journey to the next level of your language ability in a relaxed environment, come and join us! The tutor will use a range of resources (videos, games, role-plays and handouts) to supplement the course book.

Please note: this course does not run during the half-term/end-of-term breaks.

Scroll towards the bottom of the page for details on the entry requirements and how you'll learn.

What I'll learn

You will develop the basic language skills you will need for everyday conversations.

You'll improve your confidence in speaking and listening and you'll practise common phrases.

The topics of the lessons will likely include:

  • Booking a hotel room
  • Ordering food in a restaurant and drink in a café
  • Tourist information
  • Directions
  • Shopping

These may vary depending on the learners’ ability on the course

This course does not lead to a formal qualification, but we are happy to discuss ways to take a formal qualification.

 

How I'll learn

Teaching methods include:

  • Audio/visual stimulation and immersion
  • Teacher-led, formal instruction
  • Group and pair work
  • Discussions

You will have the chance to use the language in real-life situations through fun and engaging role-plays and lively group discussions.

You will also have access to specialised websites for home learning.

Furthermore, you will get the opportunity to develop your language skills according to your own specific needs.
