Spanish for Travel – New for Summer

This course is for those with little or no knowledge of the language, who would like to communicate in Spanish on their travels. Students will acquire knowledge of basic grammar and vocabulary, and will be able to hold brief conversations around everyday issues. The sessions will revolve around topics such as: 1 personal information, alphabet and pronunciation, 2 shopping, 3 directions, 4 ordering food and drink, 5 booking a hotel room, 6 travelling, 7 emergencies. Cultural aspects will also be explored within each topic. English will be used for grammatical and cultural explanations, but students will be encouraged to use Spanish as much as possible. I will be providing handouts, and students will be reading, translating, listening, and working in pairs of groups. The book we will be using is Get By in Spanish, widely available in most bookshops (ISBN 978-1-4066-1275-2).
