What we do:

The Group was set up for members to learn basic Spanish together in order to improve the experience of holidays in Spanish speaking countries. The emphasis is on practical conversational Spanish, but Improvers are now trying to get to grips with grammar.

We use a course book, backed up by audio cassettes to consolidate the speaking skills and to improve the listening skills; videos give insights into aspects of Spanish and South American culture and way of life; we also make use of Spanish newspapers, magazines, brochures, advertising material, in fact anything that comes to hand.

Classes are informal and everyone participates because we are all learners. There are ‘suggestions’ for activities which may prove useful between meetings, but no detentions!

There are usually between 9 and 12 in each Group.
