¡Bienvenidos al curso de español!

Introduction to the course.
Hello and welcome to the online course Learn Spanish for Global Communication - Level 1. During the first 2 weeks of this course you will learn how to introduce yourself in Spanish and ask others about their nationality, profession, studies, Instagram account etc. You will also become aware of key aspects of Spanish pronunciation and grammar.
You will engage with language in different ways: watching videos, listening to dialogues, reading texts, doing quizzes and vocabulary games. There will also be plenty of opportunities for you to use the language in the discussion activities, where you will write, speak and reply to your classmates. At the end of each week, we encourage you to arrange a convenient time with your classmates to meet online in what we call “Speaking Rooms”. That would be an excellent opportunity to socialize in the target language. In this online course, you will meet Pedro from Spain, Eva from Peru and Maria from Mexico. They are young professionals studying a Masters in Mexico for different reasons.
They are important because they show us how to use the language we are targeting. When writing and participating in the discussions, don’t be afraid to make mistakes. They are necessary. This course allows you to study at your own pace and go back to each section if you need to revise. These two weeks are part of a 10-week micro-credential course. The rest of the course covers a variety of topics, such as hobbies, cities, daily, routine, past experiences… And will be supported by online seminars, where we will all meet to practice and cover any questions. We hope you enjoy the course and stay with us for the entire micro-credential course. ¡Hasta pronto!
