There will be temporary changes to the teaching of this course due to Covid 19
Your safety is our priority, and in these unprecedented times we need to make some temporary changes until it is safe to welcome you all into class.
So, to begin with, your classes will be taught with a mix of online teaching and some 1:1 tutorial or small group work in a safe, socially distanced environment. Some cases courses may be taught fully online if that works best.
However, nobody needs to come into class until they feel happy to do so, all the materials you need to succeed will be online, and if you choose to stay home, we will make sure you will receive all the support you need via email, phone and through our Virtual Learning Environment.
This course is suitable for those who have already done the beginners level and possess a basic knowledge of the language.
As the course will initially commence online you will require:
We will be using PASOS book 1 (Student book) for this course. This book also comes with a CD. These items may sometimes be found in secondhand bookshops.
The emphasis is 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 is checked throughout the course by regular question and answer sessions in class, feedback, and the marking and assessing of homework.
There is no formal accreditation for this course, but a certificate of attendance may be issued at the end of the course for those who wish it.
You will make greater progress if you do at least one hour’s study at home in between the classes!
There will be a follow-on course at PACA in January. You will be able to discuss this with your tutor.
