Spanish Lower Intermediate Part 1 Course overview
In part 1 you will consolidate some of your beginner’s level knowledge before moving on to cover a new range of topics. You’ll learn to talk about your daily life, ask questions and give answers, as well as discuss plans and intentions. You will be introduced to new grammar structures, including reflexive verbs and the pretérito perfecto.
Our class sizes are small and welcoming. We use a mix of pair and groupwork to build your confidence speaking Spanish and overcome any fears of making a mistake.
If you enjoy part 1, you may wish to enrol in parts 2 and 3 to complete the lower intermediate syllabus and work towards CEFR A1/A2 of the Common European Framework Reference of language learning.
Who is it for?
Start here if you have taken our full Spanish beginners syllabus, have a low grade or rusty GCSE or studied Spanish for at least 60 hours. You should be already communicating at low CEFR A1 level. Check the eligibility section for more information.
