Intermediate Spanish: A trip across Latin America


In this free course, Intermediate Spanish: a trip across Latin America, you will learn about the ways the people of South and Central America have dealt with the everyday conditions imposed on them by the environment they live in. You will travel from Chile to Honduras and use videos, audio recordings and articles on your virtual journey towards the discovery of amazing landscapes and individuals who will share their opinions and concerns with you. Avoiding the big cities, you will journey through remote areas such as the Central American tropical forest and the most arid desert on the planet. You will also visit small, quiet towns like Amapala (Honduras) to find out about their future.

To help you understand what people are saying and feeling about their lives and environments, you will practise language skills that include the expression of uncertainty, opinions and concerns and revisit some of the uses of the indicative and the subjunctive. There will also be opportunities to broaden your vocabulary and practise understanding written and spoken Spanish. ¡Buen viaje!

Part of the materials will be in English, but this course is mainly in Spanish.
