Spanish level 3

Ref: C3671942

The course is aimed at learners who have completed a beginners' course in Spanish or who have substantial experience of speaking the language. We will develop structures and vocabulary learned in previous courses through more detailed study of a variety of themes. We will revise verb forms in present and past and will begin to study more complex features such as the use of the subjunctive mood. Learners will have an opportunity to discuss their lives, recent events including holidays, and we will introduce the use of the Past Perfect tense so that students can add more detail to their descriptions of past events.

Course aim

The purpose of the course is to give intermediate level learners of Spanish the opportunity to consolidate and build on the Spanish they have studied.
