In parallel to the topics highlighted above, you will revise and expand your knowledge of grammar, so that you can handle the language with confidence and adapt what you know to new situations. In lessons we use a variety of animated methods to promote learning and you will do individual, pair and group work, writing and reading tasks, listening activities, presentations, interviews and role-plays. You will have half an hour each week, on a 1-1 basis with a native Spanish speaker. Sessions are without a doubt an enjoyable experience, learning about life in the country of your language.
You could be working for Mango in Madrid, translating in Toledo or simply conversing in Cadiz!
There is potential for you to progress on to a wide range of university degrees leading to careers in languages, teaching, communications, journalism or even working in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
