We will be using PASOS Book 1 (Student’s book). These are sometimes available in secondhand bookshops. The tutor will be able to advise further during the first lesson.
The emphasis will be on learning through communication, though grammar points will also be taught as appropriate.Teaching will be done through whole class work, individual work and small group and pair work.Methods of learning include role play, listening activities, games, music and interactive activities.
Progress will be checked informally throughout the course, by question and answer sessions during the class, observation by the tutor, and by games and quizzes. Homework will also be given as a means of assessing progress.
You will gain more from the course if you are able to do at least one hour of study at home in between the classes!
