The main topics are designed for those who have already studied the language for at least 3 years or who have spent some time in the country and wish to learn more and practise their skills in a relaxed environment.

It is a very communicative course where you build up on what you have been learning in previous years. In this course you are encouraged to be creative with the language as there is less emphasis on grammar and verb tenses although you will still work on tenses and grammatical points. There is a lot of emphasis on communication and you will work on idiomatic expressions.

The group as a whole will be able to discuss and choose which topics are of interest to them. You will practise all four skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) with an emphasis on speaking and listening in class.
If you are to gain maximum benefit and enjoyment from your language class, it will be useful to spend some time working between sessions. There will usually be a small amount of homework set each week (up to an hours work). When homework is not set, it is still a good idea to spend about that amount of time going over what has been done in class.

Please note there will be no teaching sessions on 25/10/2021, 21/02/2022, 11/04/2022, 18/04/2022, 02/05/2022 and 30/05/2022. For Christmas break, please be advised by your teacher of the exact dates.

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 Working Towards Fluency
This is not a course for beginners. Only people who know some Spanish should sign up. This course is ideal for you if you have already undertaken the intermediate year or studied Spanish for approximately 180 hours.

Please note - you should be 19 years old or over at 31st August 2022 prior to starting the 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.

Please note - you should be 19 years old or over at 31st August 2021 prior to starting the course.
A textbook (Average cost £20 - £25) is used in this course and it is optional to buy it although we recommend students to purchase it as it is a good reference when working in the class and at home. 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 £300 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 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 find more information on our Fees and Bursaries page - search "Fees and Bursaries" at the top of the page.
