About this course

Tonbridge - Saturday course
Do you have a good level of fluency and accuracy in Spanish? Do want to continue to improve and build on your conversational skills as well as be able to gain a deeper cultural understanding? This Advanced course is for you.
You will have the opportunity to practise Spanish with other learners, to communicate with a near-native degree of fluency and accuracy.
After completing the course successful students should be able to:
• Exchange views confidently on a range of topical subjects. Take part confidently in a discussion with native speakers with a near native command of the language
• Use language, vocabulary, idiomatic and colloquial expressions appropriate to the formality of the situation and subject, culture and register.
• Obtain information, ideas and opinions from a variety of sources, extracting required details fully and accurately. Deal with texts of a technical nature with the help of a dictionary or other reference sources.
• Produce written texts for a variety of purposes. Modify language to communicate in ways appropriate to the context and relationship between writer and reader.
Grammar will bridge gaps in knowledge. 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 bring with me?

The course book will be discussed at the first session if appropriate. Although this is a conversation-based course, you may want to bring a pen and paper and dictionary, although we advise students not to buy anything until after the first session

What can I do next?

There is a short “Spanish Advanced - Hispanic Culture - Saturday Summer Schooll” to follow-up and reinforce learning. Please enrol at least one week in advance to ensure the viability of your course. After this, the next appropriate follow-on course is an "Advanced Plus" course. The tutor will be able to advise or check www.kentadulteducation.co.uk.

What do I need to join the course

For anyone who has completed a Spanish Intermediate Plus level or has studied the language for approximately 350 hours or have completed up to A level or have spent time an extended period of time in the country. The course will suit the students who can converse easily in all predictable situations, with the knowledge of the main tenses and structure of the language but need to continue to improve in fluency and accuracy to a near-native level in pronunciation/intonation, choice of vocabulary, grammar as well as idiomatic/colloquial expressions with conversation practice. This course is also for students who have completed an Advanced course in 2018-19 and want to consolidate before moving to Advanced Plus level.
If you are unsure, please carry out our self-assessment test available on www.kentadulteducation.co.uk or in our Centres. The assessment provides a score to help you chose the best course for you. If still unsure, please speak to us or to a Curriculum Leader.
