The institute beginners’ course in Spanish is designed to make the student “street-smart” and therefore covers topics such as: greeting and introducing people, ordering food and drinks, booking a hotel room, purchasing goods, taking public transport etc. The student also learns how to talk about more personal topics such as family and work. A vocabulary of about 500 words is built up during the course and grammar is kept fairly simple. Great emphasis is placed on students communicating with one another from the start.
The second level of Spanish courses aims at providing the student with a basic knowledge of the language, which will enables them to take part in conversations on a deeper level than before. The student learns how to express himself more freely and accurately in conversation, as well as how to understand short texts of varying kinds. At this stage students will be able to talk about past events.
Levels three and four bring the student to a fair degree of fluency in the language and are recommended for students who wish to work in Spain or with a Spanish firm in the Emirates.
Each course takes 40 hours and classes are usually on Sundays and Tuesdays for two hours in the evening.
