Spanish Advanced

Course description

The Advanced course is suitable for students who have a good understanding of spoken Spanish and knowledge of basic grammar. The book ¡Nos Vemos! 3 is used in the course. It corresponds to a B1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). In Book 3 we will complete the study of the Spanish grammar which involves learning the subjunctive tense and its clauses. After completing the book this course will progress into a conversation course where consolidation and practice of the language will allow students to achieve and maintain a good standard of language. Students who have learned Spanish in a Spanish-speaking country should speak to the teacher before enrolling in this class as the methodology may not be suitable or it may not be what they are after. The class will continue as long as there are sufficient enrolments. The textbook for this level is required (See details below).
