This is an online course delivered using Zoom, in real time with live interaction with your tutor and fellow learners.
Do you want to practise your Spanish, focusing on practical dialogues when travelling in Hispanic Countries? Students will be able to practise their conversational skills in a relaxed atmosphere on practical topics. The course is aimed at accommodating students from different levels from Beginners Plus to Intermediates. Individual learners are invited to contribute at their respective level, in small group and to activities in plenary.
Successful students will be able to:
- listen to other students in order to prepare own contribution to the conversation
- ask for repetition
- use a selection of phrases for expressing opinions or for agreeing/disagreeing politely in Spanish
- use new vocabulary learnt during sessions
- improve in accuracy, fluency and speed of speech according to individual level.
How will I be taught?
The focus will be on oral communication (speaking and listening). Students may converse in pairs or groups, with participants of different levels and skills with the aim to encourage everyone to contribute and progress. Pronunciation is an integral part of the course. The course will be conducted in the foreign language.
A brief Initial assessment will be carried out at the beginning of the course to assess individual skill level. You will record your starting point on your Individual Learning Plan (ILP) and set targets. You will revisit regularly during the course to monitor and record your progress. Tutors will feedback orally.
What do I need to have with me?
Students can bring a pen and paper but the aim is to practice speaking with no writing or books.
What can I do next?
"Spanish- Your Lunch Hour Conversation Practice" courses are offered regularly throughout the year, please ask your tutor or speak to us. Further details of other Spanish courses can also be found on www.kentadulteducation.co.uk or in our Centres.
What do I need to join the course
