This is an online course delivered using Zoom, in real time with live interaction with your tutor and fellow learners.
Do you want to speak more Spanish and build on your basic skills? This short Spanish Beginners Plus course is for you.
You will benefit from being in a classroom, from exchanging face to face with a supportive tutor and others as you practise speaking and enjoy learning the language. You will build on your previous knowledge of basic key phrases, vocabulary, simple grammar and culture.
By the end of the course, successful students will be able to:
• exchange information about self, work and life
• express likes and dislikes / agreements and disagreements
• exchange information about past events
You will be given homework to reinforce classroom learning.

How will I be taught?
The emphasis on this course is on listening and speaking. The lesson focus on language that is required in authentic situations. To help you develop language skills the course will be conducted mainly in the foreign language. You will work through different activities individually, in pairs and in small groups, using a variety of learning methods and resources (role-play, games…). To ensure your progression, it is essential to attend on a regular basis. We also recommend that you spend 1 – 2 h each week doing private study as directed by your tutor.
With your tutor, you will monitor and record your progress on your learning plan (ILP)
What do I need to have with me?
The course book will be discussed at the first session if appropriate. Students will need to bring a pen and paper and an A4 ring binder for handouts, although we advise students not to buy anything until after the first session.
What can I do next?
Please enrol onto your next course Spanish Beginners Plus - La Primavera - to continue with Spanish learning after Christmas. The course code is TON/52151/F/LC. After Easter, there is a short “Spanish Beginners Plus - Summer School” (TON/53199/F/LC) to follow-up and reinforce learning. After this, the next appropriate follow-on course is an Intermediate course. The tutor will be able to advise or check www.kentadulteducation.co.uk.
