Secondary Spanish Up-skilling Level 1 Course - Teacher CPD
Please note that the dates of this course have changed. One of the days is on a Saturday so that teachers need only be out of their classroom for two days.
Our Up-skilling course is for secondary language teachers who wish to acquire a third or fourth language. The course takes into account the fact that delegates already have advanced language-learning skills, understand grammatical structures and wish to fast-track their learning. This course is for language teachers with no previous knowledge of Spanish.
This course focuses on:
- confidence in oral fluency
- phonetics, pronunciation and intonation
- speaking and listening skills
- reading and writing skills
- grammatical structures and tenses
- acquiring vocabulary and structures aligned to the Key Stage 3 curriculum
We also offer a level 2 course as a follow up to the above or for those teachers who already have a basic knowledge of Spanish.
