Spanish Language Courses

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.

Standard Group Courses

  • Course CEFR 0 > A1 and CEFR 0 > A2 (50 hours) are for participants who speak little or no Spanish.
  • Course CEFR A1 > A2 is for participants who can understand and speak some Spanish and get by in a simple conversation about everyday topics, if the other party helps.
  • Course CEFR A2 > A2/B1 is for participants who understand some Spanish and can participate in simple conversations and exchange simple and straightforward information about familiar topics and activities.
  • Course CEFR A2/B1 > B1 is for participants who understand Spanish and can get by in everyday situations.
  • Preparation for Spanish exam: DELE B1 is for participants who want to prepare for this exam.
