Spanish Language Courses

¡Bienvenidos a la clase de español!
Arabic

The Spanish language courses of the University of Groningen Language Centre focus mainly on speaking and understanding Spanish. More attention will be paid to reading and writing skills from level CEFR level A2 onwards. Grammar is not a goal in itself in our Spanish language courses, but is used to support the language acquisition. A great deal of attention will be paid to acquiring a basic Spanish vocabulary.

Language of Instruction               

The target language is the language of instruction as much as possible. When necessary, the course is taught in Dutch and/or English.


online courses

These courses will be taught as an online interactive group course via Blackboard Collaborate; our online classroom for the coming period! Read here everything you can expect from an online language course.
