Holiday Spanish

Ref: C3840281

This course is for students who already have some knowledge of the Spanish language and for those who are able to handle basic holiday situations in Spanish. For example, introducing yourself, ordering food and drink in a cafe and asking how much items cost in a shop. However, a recap will be done on these topics throughout the course. Come along to improve your Spanish in a lively and informal atmosphere and feel confident to handle situations in the Spanish language while on holiday.

Course aim
