am doing a summer short course at the city lit, which i can highly recommend – its 5 morning sessions of conversational spanish, everything you need to travel abroad, getting to your hotel, tourist sights and getting around a city, phrases on directions, and ordering food. Adriana makes the course entertaining and is conscientious at pronunciation – it really is a good practical course and especially if you are embarking on a trip to a spanish speaking country. apparently she does several of these short courses throughout the year, so if you are not up for committing to a weekly class, this is perfect. its at a level where you have done about a years spanish, so basic vocabulary is necessary, but its not concentrating on grammar, more on useful phrases that you can remember to get about and make your holiday easier by understanding the language.
i am actually off to spain in a weeks time, so this was perfectly timed for me.
