Spanish conversation course B1

Do you want to speak Spanish more fluently before you go up a level, or is your spoken Spanish not yet good enough? Whether you want to converse more easily with your in-laws or you need Spanish for your work or studies, a conversation course could be just what you’re looking for!

This course will help you improve your conversation skills. During the six lessons, various exercises will enable you to get to grips with the language. These include role play, language games, themed cards and Q&A sessions. This is a tried-and-tested way to broaden your vocabulary and allow you to repeat, practise and improve the grammar you have already mastered. This level covers subjects such as planning a holiday, going to the doctor and describing a country or society. We will also study some of the past tenses used in Spanish and the modo subjuntivo.

This course is the perfect opportunity to polish your Spanish with the help of a native speaker and your fellow-participants!

Intensive summer courses
This summer, we will be offering intensive Spanish Conversation summer courses for both levels. An intensive language course lasts three weeks, during which you have lessons two days a week. Each lesson lasts two hours and fifteen minutes. You will also spend about 6 hours a week on independent study.

Your level
Level B1 is intended for participants who understand Spanish and can cope with most day-to-day situations (listening, reading, writing and speaking), but want to communicate more fluently with native speakers.

If you are unsure about your level, test yourself online using the placement test! Alternatively, make an appointment for the online Spanish office hour to get personal advice.

Study load
Six lessons of 90 minutes each, and approximately 18 hours of independent study.
