General description


The University of Valladolid and Mester Academy have organised a Spanish course aimed at British and Irish teachers interested in learning or improving their Spanish language skills.

Three different levels are being offered: Spanish for absolute beginners (A1); Spanish for beginners (A2); and intermediate Spanish (B1). All students except absolute beginners will take a level test to ensure they are assigned to the correct level.

The course consists of two different forms of teaching: the first being online and the second through face-to-face classes onsite in Palencia (Spain). Both forms of teaching are complementary with the online part presenting language contents which are then put into practice during the face-to-face teaching.

Online course description


The first part of the course will be held online between February and March 2022. There are 33 hours of self-study modules which include tutorial videos, interactive exercises, and audiovisual materials. In addition, course participants will have the support of a WhatsApp consultation service.

The self-study organization gives participants the chance to take the course when it suits them best, and adapts to their pace of learning, allowing them to revise and go over the course content as many times as they wish.
