Spanish 3


This course aims to further improve people's Spanish language proficiency skills. The course focuses on those communicative language skills needed to deal confidently with personal and professional situations. The primary focus is on listening skills, but reading, writing and speaking also form an integral part of the course. This course prepares participants for the DELE-examination, an internationally recognized language certificate.


The course will make use of authentic material as language input, such as radio or television programmes and articles on topical issues. Course material is selected on the basis of the participants' motivation and interests.

This course consists of 15 lessons of two hours each. Each lesson students receive instruction on one or more language issues, within a certain context. That same context is used in a series of exercises on other skills, to intensify learning, or for the purpose of repetition.

As in Spanish 1+2, the course is based on audio and video input. However, Spanish 3 also actively trains reading and writing skills. Active participation in class is a prerequisite for successful learning. Students are expected to practise and familiarise themselves with newly acquired language skills at home. Online sources are provided to help self-study.


Spanish 3 is the second module in a series of two: Spanish 1+2 and Spanish 3. Self-study is expected to take at least 2 hours a week.
