Spanish Improvers

Spanish Improvers

This course is suitable for those students who have already studied Spanish for about one year.


Instruction is given in Spanish using visual and audio supports. The course aims to develop the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing in Spanish. It enables students to understand native Spanish speakers and will help them in practical conversation. Come and learn Spanish in a fun and relaxed atmosphere through role-play, music and games.


The course follows the topics covered in the book Pasos 1.  However, the tutor will use his own materials and extracts from several resources, so there is no need to buy Pasos 1.
