Spanish Conversation Courses

¿Quieres hablar Español con más fluidez?
Spanish

Do you want to speak Spanish more fluently before you go up a level, or is your spoken Spanish not yet good enough? Whether you want to converse more easily with your in-laws or you need Spanish for your work or studies, a conversation course could be just what you’re looking for!

This course will help you improve your conversation skills. During the six lessons, various exercises will enable you to get to grips with the language. These include role play, language games, themed cards and Q&A sessions. This is a tried-and-tested way to broaden your vocabulary and allow you to repeat, practise and improve the grammar you have already mastered.

You can join this course if you have passed basic level Spanish A2 or intermediate level B1. The course will be taught entirely in Spanish.

This course is the perfect opportunity to polish your Spanish with the help of a native speaker and your fellow-participants!


Course location

These courses will be taught in person in the city centre of Groningen!
