On our revolutionary new Social Spanish Course get set to start using the lingo practically from the get go

Our Social Spanish Course  is seriously shaking things up in the world of teaching. The Beginner Level 1 Social Spanish Course launching May 2017 includes three social experiences integrated with classroom-based learning: we get you out to a pub, bookshop and restaurant speaking real Spanish for more practical, effective and fun learning.

What's Included?

  • get weekly two-hour lessons over 12 weeks;
  • go on three social Spanish outings to learn new lingo and practise your skills; 
  • benefit from feedback and attention from two teachers in every lesson; 
  • gain input from a native-speaking assistant teacher;
  • enjoy small class sizes;
  • get short, weekly homework tasks and optional extra activities;
  • get catch-up tasks if you need to miss a lesson;
  • use self-assessment and reflection frameworks to keep you in the driving seat of your learning.

The Lingo You'll Learn

By the end of this twelve-week course you should be able to:

  • use ordinary expressions to greet people and introduce yourself;
  • share information about your life and the people in it;
  • use everyday Spanish slang to give your opinions; 
  • have exchanges over meals; 
  • give a range of reactions in conversation;  
  • use survival phrases to clarify the meaning and pronunciation of words; 
  • give your contact details and correct mis-spelling;
  • get to grips with practicalities: shopping including quantities and prices;
  • enjoy good old British chat about the weather. 

Dates: Monday 8 May - Monday 31 July

Time: 19:00 - 21:00 

Location: Old Street and three central London venues.

What's So Different?

On this course, unlike any other language course in the UK, we integrate three social outings with classroom-based learning. Over the twelve-week course based in our Old Street offices we get you out to central London venues speaking Spanish and learning new lingo. It's more practical, more effective and more fun that way.
