Spanish for Beginners 6: Out and About

?
This course is part of the Spanish for Beginners program, which will enable you to learn basic Spanish and discover the Spanish-speaking world.

Why join the course?

This free online course is the last of six in the Spanish for Beginners program. It will introduce you to language that you need to:

  • talk about where places are;
  • ask for directions;
  • shop for clothes;
  • order food and drinks.

Learn how to go out, shop, eat and drink in Spanish

During the four weeks of the course, you will learn some phrases you’ll need if you have to ask for directions, as well as a range of vocabulary related to clothes and food, so you can enjoy going shopping next time you visit a Spanish-speaking country.

You will find out about tapas, pinchos and raciones, and be able to make sense of a Spanish menu, and will learn about the beautiful city of Valencia in Spain. You will also learn to use the imperative to give directions.

By now, as we reach the end of the Spanish for Beginners program, you should be fairly confident in using basic Spanish to talk about yourself and about everyday and familiar situations.

In this course, you will also find some advice about what you can do next to take your Spanish further.
