Spaces:8 spaces left

Centre:Dorchester Library and Learning Centre

An interesting and fun Intermediate level course, for those wishing to develop their language skills beyond simple phrases, conversations, and writing, at beginner level.

What the course is about

During this course you will receive both group and individual support in order to help you learn more about the Spanish language and culture, including complex sentence structures, vocabulary, verbs, tenses, and grammar, at a higher level than the beginner's courses at Step 1, 2 and 3. Topics that may be covered include:




  • Descriptions (use of the imperfect tense)

  • Spanish use around the world including key regional differences

  • Current affairs including the use of print and social media

  • Discussing film, television and cultural events in the formal and informal



All our courses are made up of elements of speaking & listening, reading and writing, and you will work on these elements throughout the course. Some of the skills you gain on this course could help increase your opportunities for employment or working within the community. Learning takes place in a friendly classroom setting, which is a great place for social interaction and helping you meet new people. Practice at home and completion of homework is advisable to enhance your learning experience.



This course is subsidised by Government funding so you should aim to attend the whole course.
