While we use BBC Talk Spanish 2, content depends very much on the needs of the participants. As there is a range of experience sometimes revision is needed. Participants are encouraged to deliver short talks to the class on a weekly basis
About the Tutor:
Mike began to learn Spanish when he was 60 by taking evening classes at TAFE for a year in preparation for a long backpacking trip through Spain,
On his return he continued evening classes at the Institute of Modern Languages at the University of Queensland for a further 2 years. Trips to Spain continued every few, more recently without backpack. Between trips he found a series of tutors for weekly Spanish Conversation classes which continue to this day.
When he came to Tewantin, there was no U3A Spanish class so he studied Italian.
Mike has been teaching Spanish at U3A noosa since 2015.
