Improvers Spanish

This group restarted on 12th October 2021. 

Group Leader: Barry (barryjcopeland2@yahoo.co.uk)

Venue: Plymouth Athenaeum Library

Meet: 1st + 3rd Tuesday: 2.00pm – 3.30pm

This group were the previous Spanish Beginners, who have all made excellent progress over the past 12 months. The sessions are based on the assumption that participants have a basic knowledge of Spanish pronunciation and grammar (genders, articles, verb endings etc) and have a sufficient vocabulary to be able to write/speak simple sentences in the present tense. Please note that things are fairly formal and structured, basically it is a taught course.

The emphasis is on developing vocabulary and accurate pronunciation in spoken work, with more of an emphasis on correct grammar in written exercises. We will also be working on expanding our knowledge of other tenses in the coming months!

This group is currently full but is running a waiting list. It is not suitable for complete beginners.

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 tend to be revision sessions for those who are around.

Beginners Spanish

This group is starting on 26th October 2021. PROVISIONALLY FULL

Group Leader: Barry (barryjcopeland2@yahoo.co.uk)

Venue: Plymouth Athenaeum Library

Meet:  2nd + 4th Tuesday: 2.00pm – 3.30pm

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.

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 tend to be revision sessions for those who are around.

This group is now provisionally full but is running a waiting list in case anyone decides not to attend. It is difficult to add new members once the group gets going for obvious reasons.
