Choose from 3 levels to find the course for you.
You have zero prior experience of learning Spanish. You are motivated to learn basic rules of pronunciation, fundamentals of basic expressions and foundations of Grammar, especially rules of politeness (“tu” versus “usted”) as well as useful everyday expressions (cuanto cuesta?, quiero un café con leche etc)
Outcome: By the end of this course, you will be able to say basic things about yourself, and understand simple Spanish and some grammar. You will NOT be able to understand a native speaker when they talk fast, or the waiter when they ask you how exactly you want your Gazpacho, but you have learned the basics of the language. Qué bien!
You’ve studied Spanish before (maybe in school), but you forgot most of it. Maybe you remember some Spanish grammar at the back of your mind but you need a refresh! You want to be able to say basic things in Spanish for a trip to Spain, or impress your friend who speaks Spanish
By the end of this course, you will be able to :
- understand what others say about themselves
- ask others about themselves
- order food and drinks in a café
- recognise common Spanish sounds
Understand modern Spoken Spanish
You’re at an intermediate level (higher end of A2 – B1 on the CEFR scale).
You understand basic Spanish grammar, know your verb conjugations etc… Maybe you even try out your Spanish with a Spanish speaking native at work, or while on holiday in Spain or Latin America.
However, you would like to learn the “real” modern spoken Spanish language: not slang Spanish, but the way everybody speaks in a relaxed, casual environment.
You will overcome the intermediate plateau and be more confident in speaking Spanish and understanding more fast-paced conversations. You’re ready to take the next step to sound more natural sounding and less like the Spanish you learned at school!
Some topics covered in A2/B1 course:
- Expresar sentimientos / preguntar por el estado de ánimo y físico
- Cómo quedamos?
- Expresar experiencias personales
- Sucesos y bromas
- Comprension oral – micro-auditivas
- Technologia – la vida de hoy y mañana
