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 Spanish more fluently and build on your conversational skills as well as be able to gain a deeper cultural understanding? In this course Spanish Intermediate Plus El Verano, you will benefit from being in a virtual classroom, exchanging face to face with your supportive tutor and other students as you practise speaking in Spanish and enjoying learning the language. This course is the last of the 3 courses in the series and will focus on building up confidence on the areas studied in the previous 2 short courses.
By the end of the course successful students should be able to be more confident to:
- Communicate on a wider range of topics and be able to extract details accurately from various sources
- Obtain information from complex texts and deal with topics of a familiar/unfamiliar nature
- Making hypothesis using the conditional
- Start expressing attitudes and emotions using the subjunctive
- Start to use colloquial expressions and appropriate style of language in conversations
Grammar gaps will be covered as needed. 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 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?
Reaching a full intermediate Plus level requires 2 years or more. The appropriate follow-on course is another Intermediate Plus course or an Advance course if you have the level. The tutor will be able to advise or check on our website www.kentadulteducation.co.uk.
What do I need to join the course
Students need to have completed a Spanish Intermediate Plus course or the 2 short courses "El Otoño and "La Primavera", or have studied the language for approximately 350 hours or completed Spanish GCSE (A/C grades) and can speak confidently in predictable everyday situations. New students and returning students are welcome and each will work towards progress from their starting point.
