Spanish for beginners Wednesdays 17.45 2017/18

We are not accepting new students onto this class until September 2018 when we will begin again with a new Spanish beginners course.

This course is an introduction to basic Spanish, using simple structures with a range of useful vocabulary for the daily routine. By the end of the course the students will be able to ask and answer questions about themselves (name, telephone number, nationality, professions etc.)
 
We'll be practising real situations in pairs and with role play such as meeting and greeting people, ordering a meal, booking a hotel, giving and asking for directions, describing places and people and so on. 
 
In grammar, the students will learn to conjugate the simple present (reflexive and stem- changing verbs), know the conjugation of verb "gustar" and similar verbs, understand quantifiers (muchos pocos bastantes...) and express frequency (siempre, nunca a veces,etc).
They will have the opportunity to practise listening and reading skills as well as listening to a native speaker whilst discovering more about Spanish culture, traditions and way of life.

It is advisable to get the CD as well as the activity book to reinforce what it is being taught in the classroom.
