This course introduces basic grammatical forms, essential frequent vocabulary and key aspects of pronunciation. You will have opportunities to practise communicating in Spanish on daily topics (see course content below), listen for the gist of a short conversation, write about basic information (email, text message, postcard) and read short texts.
The course is taught mainly in Spanish and includes coverage of listening, speaking, reading and writing with guided practice in language usage and use of authentic communicative activities. You are expected to attend regularly, participate in class and complete homework regularly to ensure learning progress. You will receive regular feedback from your tutor.
This will be achieved through 20 hours of blended learning: this is composed of 15 hours of online structured lessons with the teacher. This is supplemented by a minimum of 5 hours of guided independent learning supported by complementary material and regular feedback from the tutor. The course objective will be achieved within the 10-week course.
