This free course, Intermediate Spanish: Understanding spoken Spanish, has offered you some advice on working with audio-visual materials in Spanish. We hope that this has given you a step on the way to working independently and enjoyably with materials to develop your Spanish further. There is much material that is readily accessible online. Take every opportunity to watch, read and listen. You can listen to Spanish radio, use the internet and social media (for example, Youtube, online newspapers, Twitter) with subtitles or translations when available. As you have practised in this course, the use of subtitles in English or in Spanish is a good learning strategy. If you are interested in a topic in your mother tongue, follow this up with finding out more about it in Spanish.

This OpenLearn course introduces some of the characters and contexts that can be found in the Open University course L116 Spanish Studies 1: language and culture of the Spanish-speaking world [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] .
