Have fun as you learn to understand and speak Spanish in a range of practical everyday situations, immersing yourself in the culture of Spain and Latin America along the way.

This course is a continuation from your Spanish Introduction course or it is the start point if you are a confident but rusty beginner. The emphasis of the course will be on you developing your speaking and listening skills with some focus on reading and writing. You will be introduced to some grammatical aspects such as the present tense embedded into the teaching and learning of the topics. The topics studied depend upon the needs and interests of the group as a whole but may include shopping for food and drink, restaurant, telling the time, buying travel tickets, booking holiday accommodation, describing the weather and describing yourself and family. Depending on the topics chosen by the group, by the end of the course you will be able to:

1 Buy some food & drink and/or clothes (including quantity and colours)
2 Order a starter, main and dessert in a restaurant
3 Buy tickets for plane/bus/train (specifying date, time and class) and understand basic travel information such as timetables and travel announcements
4 Book holiday accommodation (including dates, type of room and facilities)
5 Describe the weather in simple terms and comprehend the key points of a simple weather forecast
6 Describe yourself and family including number of people, names, ages, professions and physical descriptions

Please note there will be no teaching sessions on 17/02/2020, 06/04/2020, 13/04/2020, 04/05/2020 and 25/05/2020

Abingdon and Witney College is subject to Ofsted regulation and is required to work with all its students to make sure they understand Government initiatives around Safeguarding, Prevent and Fundamental British Values. Information on these matters will be shared with you during your course.

You will also be asked to complete monitoring paperwork, which helps us to deliver course content to the highest quality.

Spanish Improvers
There are no formal entry requirements. This is a course for those who have already studied the language for about 20 hours or have picked up a little on holidays or business trips. Even if you are an absolute beginner you will benefit from this course.

Courses can fill fast, so please enrol early to avoid disappointment. Decisions on whether a course is to run are made two weeks prior to the start date - an email will be sent to you should there be changes to your course or if it is cancelled. Please check your inbox leading up to your course, including the junk folders. For anyone without an email account, our Admissions team will phone you instead.

For the first week of the course you will need to bring a valid form of identification; this includes passport, driving licence, debit/credit card, Birth Certificate or National Insurance card.

Please note - you should be 19 years old or over at 31st August 2019 prior to starting the course.
A text book is used to accompany the course but it is optional to buy this (average cost £20 - £25). You may also like to buy a small dictionary. Your tutor will be able to advise you at the first session.

Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £100 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.

The 19+ full fee button displays the full fee that may apply. As the rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options. You can also visit the Course Fees & Finance page under 'Info Centre' at the top of the page.
