The group is most suited to those whose standard is post-GCSE. We aim to speak Spanish throughout, except when specific grammar points are emphasised. All members are expected to participate orally, and the conversation flows freely. As well as members’ own input, wide use is made of up-to-date Spanish newspaper material to provide topics of interest.
We are a friendly group, and everyone takes an enthusiastic part. Tapes or DVDs are used periodically for listening practice. We have an annual lunch party in January at a Spanish restaurant, to which members can bring a partner or friend.
Seven members of the group went to Spain for a week in June 2015 for a Spanish language immersion course in Cantabria and Rioja under the auspices of Eurolink Cantabria, led by Jose Antonio Herrera.
