  • Is this course for you?

    Learning a language is the gateway to both exploring, and understanding, a different part of the world and its people. A language is the formation of how the individuals within a culture think and organise their thoughts when communicating. You will find that as you learn a new language you are also learning about your culture and the way that you think and organise your thoughts.

    You should have:

    • Commitment to the learning
    • A love of Spain and its cultural aspects
    • A willingness to participate in class activities with peers and to complete homework tasks
    • Confidence to speak aloud in class in Spanish
    • A willingness to embrace grammar aspects
    • A willingness to share ideas, information and personal experiences about Spain in class
  • Required qualifications

    No knowledge required but a desire to learn Spanish and to have fun whilst doing so.

  • What skills will I develop?

    Learners will use a balance of the four key elements of language learning: listening, speaking, reading and writing to develop their knowledge and abilities within the topic areas.

    • Listening comprehension tasks will be undertaken in class using CDs and video clips.
    • Speaking of the language will be achieved via pair work role plays, small group activities, games and directed questioning.
    • Reading comprehension tasks will be given in class (as well as for homework) and learners will also read aloud in class in Spanish.
    • Writing of Spanish will be practised and developed mainly through homework tasks (essential for language building, especially of vocabulary and grammatical structure).

    Learners will also develop their knowledge of Spanish grammar rules (using nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives etc).

    Learners will be able to converse in Spanish during trips to Spain.

    Learners will gain knowledge on Spanish cultural aspects e.g. food, festivals, music, cinema, TV programmes, geography via quizzes, news items, class activities, websites and video clips of Spanish life.

  • Careers

    Learners will be equipped and have the confidence to progress to the next level of learning – Spanish Beginners 2.

    Learners will also gain transferable skills useful to employers e.g. working in a team, social and communication skills, an understanding of English grammar, respect for others and overall increased confidence, as well as their acquired Spanish language skills.

  • English and maths

    English: learners will develop verbal communication skills through class activities with peers and through interaction with tutor. English grammar points will be highlighted and developed by means of the use of corresponding Spanish grammar.

    Maths: learners will develop confidence in maths through using numbers when asking/giving age, talking about numbers of family members, asking/giving prices and practising number skills via games such as bingo.

    Digital: learners will be able to use tablets, if they wish, to access the core course resource (BBC Talk Spanish 1). Various websites will be used to enhance the learning and learners will watch video and YouTube clips and access online language games. Emails will be exchanged between tutor and learners for updates and queries.

    A Smartboard will be used in class and learners will use the Internet for research of topics as well as Google Classroom for tutor/learner, learner/tutor and learner/learner communication.

  • Other important information
    • You will require a notepad and pen.
    • The tutor will advise on any books to be purchased.
    • You have to be an adult student aged 19+ to enrol on the course.
