Course Content

This Spanish Beginners course is focused on learning the basics of the Spanish language. The course targets vocabulary and expressions that can be useful when facing daily life situations or when travelling, such as booking a hotel room, talking about our holidays, what we do for a living, going to the shops etc. The students will work on their speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills when facing those situations. They will also become familiar with the Spanish culture by listening to songs or watching videos from the popular culture, as a way to broaden their familiarity with the Hispanic world.

Level: Beginners, or those with basic knowledge of Spanish who wish to start from the basics of the language.

  • To ask and say what time it is
  • To have acquired the basic vocabulary needed to go shopping in Spain
  • To talk about your likes and dislikes
