The aim of this course is to help students to express themselves with fluency, spontaneity and effortlessly. We will work so students use the right expression, suitable to different situations and contexts, social, workplace, academic…. Also, students will aim to use the language with grammatical accuracy, precision, and flexibility.

In order to avoid disappointment, it is advisable to enrol at least 2½ weeks prior to the course starting. We will confirm course information two weeks prior to the start date.

On this course, we will work on the four skills (listening, speaking, writing, and reading). We will look at relevant topics and current affairs in great detail such as technology, the digital era and the impact on our lives or the environment but we will also work with different literary works by Spanish and South American authors as well as discuss cultural events or news from Spanish speaking countries. Grammar will also be studied from connectors to subordinate sentences, conditionals, the subjunctive, or the use of the passive voice.

Please note there will be no teaching sessions on: 25/10/2021, 20/12/2021, 27/12/2021, 03/01/2022, 21/02/2022, 11/04/2022, 18/04/2022, 02/05/2022 and 30/05/2022.

There are no formal entry requirements, however this is a course for those who have completed the Becoming Fluent course or have studied the language at school for upwards of five years or have spent a significant period of time in the country. This is a course for students who are already able to talk fairly confidently about a wide range of topics or if they find themselves in situations other than tourist situations.

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 2021 prior to starting the course.
A textbook is used on 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. Tutor will give details during class.

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.

As this is a non-accredited course, there is no formal qualification. However, you will be asked to complete activities that demonstrate how you are progressing on your course.
Learning activities will include individual, pair, small group, and whole class work. You will listen to the spoken word through conversation activities, CDs and DVDs, practise speaking, play games, read more complex texts, and write accounts. This is not an accredited course so there will be no formal examination. However, your tutor will ask you to complete informal assessment exercises and will give you feedback.
