Week 1: How to say hello and goodbye


¡Bienvenido/a a semana 1! Welcome to Week 1!

This week, you will find out how to describe a variety of different social events. You will then learn about accepting and declining invitations (and how to give reasons for saying no), which you will be encouraged to practise out loud to reinforce your learning. In addition, there will be some tips around recording and organising vocabulary for your later revision – you should consider the approach that will work best for you, as this is a crucial element of language learning.

Enjoy the week!

This OpenLearn course is an adapted extract from the Open University course LXS003 Beginners Spanish 3: ¡Adelante! [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]
