Students will have developed business communication skills in key performance areas such as exchanging information, discussing and presenting simple business issues. Students will develop basic listening, speaking, reading and writing skills necessary to communicate about self, family and daily life, as well as basic survival needs. They will also explore cultural aspects of the Spanish speaking world. The main focus of the course will be the acquaintance with the Standard Business Spanish spoken in Spain.

Course objective

After successful completion of this course the students will be able to employ simple syntactic structures using a basic set of words. They will be able to communicate within this framework in writing and speaking. The students will have acquired the skills necessary to tackle simple business texts and to read for the gist. They will know how to best use dictionaries, not only to understand texts but also to enlarge their vocabulary while working on them.
