How will I be taught?
The focus will be on speaking and listening. Some reading and writing will also be included. Pronunciation and Hispanic culture are an integral part of the course. The course will be conducted mainly in the foreign language. Learners will work through different activities individually, in pairs and in small groups, using a variety of learning methods and resources (ex role-play and games). Homework set will provide an opportunity for self-study to reinforce learning.
Initial assessment will be carried out at the beginning of the course to assess individual skill level. You will record your starting point on your Individual Learning Plan (ILP) and set targets. You will revisit regularly during the course to monitor and record your progress. Tutors will feedback orally on homework.
What do I need to bring with me?
The course book will be discussed at the first session if appropriate. Students will need to bring a pen and paper and an A4 ring binder for handouts, although we advise students not to buy anything until after the first session.
What can I do next?
The appropriate follow-on course is another Intermediate or an Intermediate Plus course. The tutor will be able to advise or check on our website www.kentadulteducation.co.uk.
What do I need to join the course
For anyone looking to improve the practical speaking and listening skills needed to cope with a range of real life situations more complex than those at basic Intermediate level.
Students need to either have completed one of our Intermediate courses or have studied GCSE (A/C grades) or have studied the language for approximately 150/200 hours and who can express themselves and understand most information relating to personal, work or social matters.
The course is a perfect transition to a next level Spanish Intermediate Plus starting in the Autumn.
