Course Information
This course is suitable for students who have previously attended a Beginner 1 course (around 15h of tuition) or have previously learned the language covered in our Beginner 1 course programme while travelling or visiting family.

This course may be challenging for students who have learned some vocabulary/phrases on Duolingo but have had no classroom or speaking experience (they should attend the Beginner 1 level first). In this course you will have the chance to…

  • Putting in to practice your basic knowledge of Spanish by chatting with your peers in Spanish
  • Continue developing your listening, speaking, interacting, reading and writing skills
  • Consolidate your Beginner level knowledge and gain an A1 level of the CEFR*
  • Learn about the culture of the different Spanish speaking countries
  • Meet new people with a common interest and have fun learning together ☺

After completing this course, students will be able to continue with their Spanish studies by joining the Elementary 1 course (A2.1).
