Spanish Semester II, (A2) is addressed to students with few previous knowledge. We work with Nuevo Español en Marcha A1-A2.

The topics that will be discussed are mainly those from everyday life.

Using a variety of texts, translations and other exercises, the students will learn to talk about the world of business.
Attention will be given in particular to the following topics:

a) Grammar:

  • Past tense: "Imperfecto", "Perfect" and "Indefinido"
  • Simple future
  • Comparison
  • Pronouns

b) Oral expression: Presentation of a Latin American country or a region from Spain. (10 minutes)

The main objective of the course is to improve the students' writing and oral language capabilities. By business- related exercises the students will extend their vocabulary.
