Spanish 1+2


This course aims to provide people with basic Spanish speaking and listening skills. The course focuses on the language skills needed to be self-reliant in Spanish and to deal confidently in everyday situations. This course prepares participants for the DELE-examination, an internationally recognized language certificate.


There is some room during the course for personal requests involving other language skills, e.g. writing an e-mail message or reading simple magazine articles.

The weekly lessons take audio and video input as a starting point. The language exercises evolve around conversations and everyday situations. Students are expected to practise and familiarise themselves with newly acquired language skills at home. Online sources are provided to help self-study.


Spanish 1+2 is the first module in a series of two: Spanish 1+2 and Spanish 3. Each module consists of 15 lessons of two hours each. Self-study is expected to take at least 2 hours a week.
