JTC: Spanish Advanced Conversation Hours
Prerequisites£

Tue 22 Oct, Tue 29 Oct, ... Tue 26 Nov 2019

Description

If you have finished a Spanish course of upper-intermediate or higher level (B2/C1) or you have lived/travelled around the Spanish-speaking world and would like to maintain your conversation skills in a relaxed and informal setting, then these sessions will be of use to you.

Come along and participate in classes where you discuss newspaper/web articles, photographic exhibitions, videos, anecdotes etc., with your classmates, aided by a native Spanish-speaking facilitator. The choice of topics, such as trends, current affairs, fashion, the environment, tradition and culture etc., is virtually endless and is up to the class. Students will take turns to choose the topic and source in Spanish that you will read/watch before the class in preparation for the debate.

There will be pair and group activities in a very friendly, informal environment and we will speak without interruptions (if you wish, the facilitator will give you a personal card with language advice at the end of each session).

If you have completed Spanish Intermediate 2 or Spanish Advanced/Advanced Plus CULP course, an A Level or Spanish IB Diploma or equivalent, you are warmly invited to attend the Spanish Advanced Conversation Hours. ¡Bienvenidos!
