The topics covered include: housing, food and drink, professions, and hobbies. The course covers various aspects of life and customs. Participants study elementary grammar and vocabulary and practice these new skills in a communicative context. Spanish is in principle the language of instruction. Participants are expected to prepare for the lessons at home (approximately two hours per lesson).
