Spanish

At Keele we offer 10 levels of Spanish, from absolute beginner to post-A-level, available to all Keele students and staff.

Being able to speak Spanish, the official language in 23 countries and the second language in USA, can open up a whole new world whether that means travelling in South America, making the most of holidays in Spain or using language skills to get a better job. Spain is one of the UK 's major trading partners. Whatever career you choose to follow, your Spanish skills will help you get more from life.

Which level do I choose?

There are 10 levels (stage 1-10). The qualifications table will show you the most appropriate module for your level of language competence. Where GCSE qualifications are given, we assume these were taken 2-5 years ago.

Keele Students

If you choose a Modern Language module as a free-standing elective within your undergraduate degree programme there is no additional cost.

If your principal programme does not allow you to take any free-standing elective modules you can still enrol on one language module per semester free of charge.  Equally, if you can only choose one free-standing elective per year you can take a second module in the same language without additional charges.

Costs

Students who have sufficient free-elective space but would like to take one or more Modern Language modules in addition to their degree have to pay a module fee of £250 for the first module and £199 for a second module in the same language in the same year.

We are pleased to offer our PGT and PGR students a number of free places on our language modules (subject to availability). For details please e-mail languages@keele.ac.uk.

Please contact the Language Centre office (languages@keele.ac.uk) who will be happy to advise on any of the above.

Keele Staff

As part of Keele's international strategy, the Language Centre offers free places on credit-bearing language modules to staff.

Timetable

Times for classes are dependent on the Keele undergraduate timetable and will be available from the beginning of the academic year.

Spanish students are offered the chance to take part in a summer programme in Nebrija, Madrid, allowing the students the chance to get first-hand experience of language and culture during the vacation period - see Residential Summer Language Courses.

What Students Say

Here's what some of our previous students had to say about our Spanish Modern Language modules:

"The tutor is fantastic and has helped me to grasp the grammar side of Spanish with great ease. She is very enthusiastic which motivated me to make sure my additional homework was completed and encouraged me to engage within class participation."

"I feel that what I've covered in Spanish 1 will help me to learn more Spanish in my free time."

"The amount covered was appropriate and I feel like I've learned a lot. I hope to be able to continue doing Spanish modules next year to further my knowledge in the Spanish language."

"A well-structured module with an excellent tutor. Really feel like you're getting to know the language and culture of Spanish speaking countries."

"Fantastic tutor. Very much enjoy the way in which languages are taught at Keele."
