Spanish 3

Group Leader: Heather

Venue: upstairs in the Maritime Inn, Plymouth Barbican

Day: 3rd and 4th Mondays: 2pm – 4pm

This group caters for those who already have a reasonable command and understanding of the Spanish language.

Members are expected to prepare basic talks and present them in Spanish to the rest of the group. Sessions are led by Lydia (a native speaker) covering themes requested by the group members.

Currently there are places available in this group.

Beginners Spanish

Group Leader: Barry

Venue: upstairs in the Maritime Inn, Plymouth Barbican

Meet: 1st + 3rd Thursday: 2pm – 4pm (+ 5th Thursday if applicable)

The course assumes that new participants are complete newcomers to the language; those with some previous knowledge are welcome but please bear in mind the above assumption! Consequently sessions are fairly formal and structured, basically it is a taught course.

This group is currently full, but an extra group may be starting soon so please contact Barry if you wish to join the waiting list.

Latest Update

This group has made excellent progress in the 12 months it has been going for and will soon be renamed Spanish Improvers and a new SPANISH BEGINNERS group will start when there are sufficient numbers on the waiting list.

We need an almost full group to commence as given the nature of the course it is difficult to add new members once the group has been going for a couple of months for obvious reasons.

Please understand that you need to commit to attending on a regular basis for most of the year – it is not a group you can drop in and out of. However I do recognise that people who learn foreign languages tend to travel, so the summer months are revision sessions for those who are around.
