The course “Spanish for Beginners I” is aimed towards learners with little or no previous knowledge of the Spanish language. The courses “Spanish for Beginners I and II” are based on each other. In the course of the two modules, students will first reach proficiency level A1 and then advance to level A2 of the European Framework of Reference for Languages.
The goal of the course is to provide students with basic knowledge of the Spanish language, which will enable them to communicate in general and professional situations as quickly as possible, both orally and in writing. To do so, all four skills (speaking, listening comprehension, reading and writing) will be trained equally. Content development will be supported by the repetition of the relevant grammatical structures.
The course takes a communicative and pragmatic approach that particularly promotes communicative competence in job-relevant situations through the use of role playing and situational dialogues. This also includes intercultural aspects that raise the students´ awareness of cultural differences and enable them to assert themselves in specific situations.
In the course „Spanish for Beginners I“ students will learn the lessons 1 to 5 from “Meta Profesional A1-A2” (Spanisch für den Beruf. Klett Verlag).
