3 DIFFERENT LEVELS:
a grant to cover most of the costs will be offered
The University of Valladolid and Mester Academy have organised a Spanish course aimed at British and Irish teachers interested in learning or improving their Spanish language skills.
Three different levels are being offered: Spanish for absolute beginners (A1); Spanish for beginners (A2); and intermediate Spanish (B1). All students except absolute beginners will take a level test to ensure they are assigned to the correct level.
The course consists of two different forms of teaching: the first being online and the second through face-to-face classes onsite in Palencia (Spain). Both forms of teaching are complementary with the online part presenting language contents which are then put into practice during the face-to-face teaching.
