Module description

This 24-week module, leading to CEFR B2 (Upper Intermediate)/A-level+*, is aimed at developing your language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) in Spanish to an advanced intermediate level of ability. It will also help you gain further insight into aspects of the culture and society of the Spanish-speaking world.

You will consolidate your knowledge of tenses in the indicative and the subjunctive and learn to use more complex sentences and structures, as well as idioms and expressions. You will be working with longer texts from a range of media, including news and current affairs programmes as well as films.
