Ever been to Spain and wished you could speak like the locals? Do you want to develop an exciting new language skill? This course is for you. Begin your journey into the Spanish language with this Spanish Beginners course.
Develop your Spanish skills in a fun and welcoming environment.
The following topics will be covered on this course:
- Home and family information
- Asking for directions in towns
- Eating out and booking accommodation.
Grammar structures at a basic level will be taught, focusing on the present tense. The main language skills to be developed are speaking, listening, reading and writing. Understanding written Spanish is based on practical items such as notices, leaflets and signs.
By the end of the course you will have the ability and confidence to cope with everyday situations such as ordering a meal, booking a hotel room and exchanging basic personal information, by concentrating on simple sentences, short questions and responses and grammatical structures. Much use will be made of role play in small groups.
- You will learn how to communicate in everyday situations using the four language skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing.
You should be aware this is a three term course and they will be expected to complete all three terms of Beginners before moving up to Intermediate the following September.
There are no formal entry requirements for the first term of the course, although you should have a good level of basic literacy.
No previous knowledge required for term one. Term two is a continuation of term one so basic knowledge is required. Term three is a continuation of term two so equivalent knowledge is required.

This course utilises the Microsoft Teams platform to access some resources. Basic training will be provided to allow you to participate in all learning activities.
