Foundation Year: Preparation for University in Spain
Course description Foundation Year: Preparation for University in Spain
The annual course for students with an elementary (A1) or beginner (A2) level is designed for those students who want to learn the language and at the same time, enjoy their time in Spain discovering the Spanish cuisine, culture, literature, etc. The linguistic immersion of the student is fundamental to the success of this type of course.
The course consists of 4 hours a day with a focus on active communicative skills of oral transmission and interaction and the passive communication skills of written transmission and interaction. Within these 4 hours a day, there will be language classes and workshops dedicated to cultural topics such as festivities, traditions, history, literature, cinema, etc. Depending on the level of the group, different curricular and extracurricular activities will be designed to help the learning process. Whoever said that learning only takes place in the classroom?
