Spanish for Beginners

This course is for those who are beginning their study of Spanish, and who want to learn to communicate effectively in a range of everyday situations. Basic vocabulary, structures, and grammar will be covered. Topics will include: personal information, shopping, directions, ordering food and drink, booking a hotel room, travelling, and other practical areas of interest. Students will also learn to talk about home, family, work, and leisure, including events from the past, and plans for the future. Grammar and cultural aspects will be incorporated into every topic. Speaking will be the main activity, and students will be encouraged to participate in role-play, pair and group work, small presentations, games, and exercises. Other activities will include reading and listening comprehension, translation, and written homework. Spanish will be used as much as possible, but grammatical and cultural explanations will be given in English. The book we will be using is Sueños World Spanish 1 (BBC) ISBN 0-563-47246-4
