This is an online course delivered using Zoom, in real time with live interaction with your tutor and fellow learners.
Do you want to be able to use your Spanish in a range of real life situations? This Intermediate course is for you. You will benefit from exchanging face to face with your supportive tutor and other students as you practise speaking in Spanish and enjoying learning the language.
Successful students will be able to:
•Describe (people, places, situations, events etc) using the present, some past or future tense
•Express an opinion and simple ideas in taking part in discussions
•Listen and respond to information from a range of sources (telephone messages, news headlines/public announcements, instructions, conversations)
•Deal with emergencies, simple problems and complaints
Grammar will be expanded. You will learn to use expressions and forms appropriate to the language using present, future and some past tenses. You will be given small amounts of homework (1 hour max) each week to reinforce classroom learning.
How will I be taught?
The focus will be on speaking and listening. Some reading and writing will also be included. Pronunciation and Hispanic culture are an integral part of the course. The course will be conducted mainly in the foreign language. Learners will work through different activities individually, in pairs and in small groups, using a variety of learning methods and resources (ex role-play and games). Homework set will provide an opportunity for self-study to reinforce learning.
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 on homework.
What do I need to have with me?
The course book will be discussed at the first session if appropriate. Students will need to have a pen and paper and an A4 ring binder for handouts, although we advise students not to buy anything until after the first session.
You will need to access to the class through Zoom from either a desktop with a microphone and a camera, a laptop or a tablet.
What can I do next?
Your next course to follow-up and reinforce learning is Spanish Intermediate - Summer Course. Please enrol at least one week before the start to ensure the viability of the class. After this, the next appropriate follow-on course will be the second year of an course. The tutor will be able to advise or check www.kentadulteducation.co.uk.
