Tutor: Marion Andrew 0409 141 601 mandrew2014@outlook.com
This group continues on from the Beginners' group of last year and will do lots of revision of basic grammar, and we will aim to extend our vocabulary and to improve our Spanish pronunciation. We will spend quite a bit of time on Spanish verbs — how to conjugate them and how to use them. We will use the book “Easy Spanish Step-by-Step” by Barbara Bregstein, which is available online. Ideally participants should have at least some very basic Spanish phrases and grammar, or have knowledge of related languages, French or Italian and be able to quickly “translate” that into Spanish skills. Or be prepared to work by themselves through the first few chapters of the book, in order to come up to speed with the class.
