This course is for those who are confident with basic conversation, and want to improve their fluency and accuracy when talking about a wide range of subjects, and have studied for 5 to 6 years or equivalent, and want to refresh and continue to practise after a break in their learning.
Students will be expected to have some knowledge of present, past, future, conditional, imperative and subjunctive tenses, although these will be revised and practised as needed.
Students will be encouraged to bring personal, social, cultural and topical news to the classroom, and make presentations about them. Topics for conversation will include: plays, films, exhibitions, current affairs, and personal interests students may want to talk about.
Students will be asked at the beginning of each term if there is anything they want to, or feel they need to, revise regarding grammar, or any area of interest they would like to explore.
Speaking will be the main activity, and it will be done entirely in the target language. Other activities will include: group discussions and debates, reading and commenting on a book which students will have to purchase, and newspaper articles, which will be provided by the teacher.
The book we will be reading is ‘El tiempo entre Costuras’ by María Dueñas
