Learn in a digital environment that fosters language skills by practising reading, writing, listening and speaking. You will use Spanish with your fellow classmates and learn using various resources. Your instructor will guide you at all times in the virtual classroom and will give you feedback on the assessed course activities.
You are free to organise your studies according to your needs and time availability. However, you will be assessed in activities – both individual and in groups, oral and written. You will receive details about these on the first day of the course.
Our online level A1 Spanish courses are for people who have no previous experience of learning Spanish. We use interactive self-correcting materials that introduce students to receptive language skills, and our communicative methodology integrates grammar and use of the language in a way that helps students discoverhow Spanish is structured and used.
Productive language skills are practised both individually and in groups, and the feedback provided is personalised. Upon completion of level A1 students will have basic competencies that allow them to express themselves in everyday situations with simple phrases to fulfil essential needs: introductions, asking for and providing basic information, and conversing at an elementary level.
Spanish A1.1 is aimed especially at students with no prior knowledge of Spanish. Spanish A1.2 is especially aimed at students who have completed Spanish A1.1 or who already have some basic knowledge of the language.
