Spanish Semester II, B1 is addressed to students with few previous knowledge. We work with Nuevo Esp. en Marcha B1
The topics that will be discussed are mainly those from everyday life. During the semester, however, business-related issues will increasingly become more important. 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" and "Indefinido"
  • Simple future
  • Comparison
  • Conditional
  • Pronouns
  • curriculum vitae

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.
