Spanish - Beginners Stage 2 (Saturday Intensive)

This course takes place on Saturday mornings and covers the same content as our 16-week Beginners course, with a more intensive pace.
As your study of the language progresses from Beginners Stage 1, you will learn about sentence structure and develop your spoken and written Spanish with basic connectives, negative forms and a range of adverbs and pronouns. This course focuses on developing your communication skills so that you can have a conversation with a native speaker and convey a range of personal information, as well as express likes and dislikes and make enquiries in practical situations. You will also learn more about the culture of Spanish-speaking countries.

Course Content

Our courses follow a communicative approach which will give you the skills to communicate effectively in Spanish in everyday situations, such a booking a hotel room or buying clothes. Classroom activities in pairs and groups will help you acquire speaking and listening skills and the basic rules of pronunciation, and you will also develop your reading and writing skills. You will start building on your grammar and sentence structure with simple connectives and verb forms and express opinions.

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the house (rooms and furniture)
  • Book a hotel room (dates and details of the room)
  • Talk about the daily routine and free time (professions and hobbies)
  • Describe a person's character (personality traits)
  • Buy clothes (colours, materials, prices)
