Objectives and content

Speaking skills: This course teaches you to interact in everyday conversations. Using conversation and discussion exercises, you will activate and practise the vocabulary and grammar items from the courses Practical Spanish 1 and 2 (level A1 and A2). Attention will also be paid to pronunciation and intonation.

Required prior knowledge

  • You already have a certificate of Spanish level 2 (Practical Spanish level 2 at the UCT) or you pass an oral orientation test during the first session to show that you ar at this level.
  • You already have thorough prior knowledge of Spanish but you have not had many chances to put your knowledge into practice.
  • When you speak, you do not always feel at ease: you repeatedly use the same words and structures and you wonder whether what you say is correct.


There is a placement test and a final test.
