If you have been studying Spanish on your own and need a more structured approach to consolidate the basics of the Spanish language and gain confidence in structuring your sentences, this short course is for you.
There will be plenty of opportunities to consolidate basic grammar structures while practising talking and build on your basic skills.
You will benefit from being in a classroom, from exchanging face to face with a supportive tutor and others students like you.
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
• describe appearance and personalities
• explain simple health problems
• make arrangements using the simple future
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 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.
What can I do next?
There is a wide choice of Spanish courses. At the end of the course the tutor will be able to suggest you the best progression course for you.. Also the Curriculum Leader will be able to advise or check www.kentadulteducation.co.uk.
