Content information

Starting level:
You master Spanish quite well, but you have not had many chances to practise. When you speak, you don’t always feel at ease: you repeatedly use the same structures and you wonder whether your choice of words is correct. Before entering the course, you will be asked to do an entry test.

Content:

  • Speaking skills: this course teaches you to interact in everyday conversations. Using conversation and discussion exercises, you will practise new vocabulary and grammar items. Attention will also be paid to pronunciation and intonation.
  • Listening skills: Using focused listening exercises of average difficulty, you will learn to understand native speakers better.

Placement test: Yes
