Degree credit module options by departmentAssessment guidelines

Imperial Horizons Spanish modules are offered at a range of levels, from complete beginner to advanced. 

Our interactive classes follow a communicative approach, covering speaking, reading, writing and listening. Teaching includes pair work, as well as group work and the use of multimedia materials in class, as well as on our e-learning platform (Blackboard). All our modules are designed to be standalone but will also prepare students who wish to take their language study further.

Students should be aware that learning a language takes time and commitment. You will need to put aside a minimum of 3 hours a week for home study if you wish to succeed.

The table below provides guidelines about our module levels and which year group they are offered to.

Please read the online module descriptions carefully and refer to the assessment table to understand the CEFR levels. If you are in any doubt about which level you should be in, please contact the Spanish Coordinator for advice and/or to arrange a level consultation in-person or online.
