In this module, knowledge of Spanish as a foreign language will be further developed, enabling students to express themselves in Spanish independently and confidently in familiar situations, e.g. in the classroom, at work, in free time and with the family, on topics of general interest, e.g. films, music, sports, etc, when standard Spanish is spoken. Students learn and practice, among other things, how to speak about past habits; how to compare the past and the present; how to speak about future actions and outcomes; to express speculations and wishes; how to formulate conditionals. To do this, they will learn the necessary grammar.
The module is aimed at level "B1 Independent Language use" of the CEFR. Students acquire knowledge of Spanish as a foreign language at the standard language level with a focus on intercultural, cultural and academic aspects. Following completion of this module, students can communicate confidently in familiar situations encountered at school or work, in free-time activities or while travelling in French-speaking countries. They can understand the essential content of simple, authentic texts on every-day topics and can take part in discussions on familiar topics. Students are capable of describing personal experiences and impressions in writing in longer texts.
