Spanish level 3

Course information

The course Spanish level 3 is intended for students with a fair basic knowledge of Spanish. You can participate in this course if you are able to hold conversations on a wide range of everyday topics (such as asking for directions and ordering a meal) and are familiar with different past tenses.

The primary aim of this language course is to improve your active language skills and your proficiency in speaking, listening and reading in Spanish. This course also covers writing skills.

On completion of Spanish level 3 you will be an advanced basic user of the language and able to hold brief conversations about familiar, everyday topics such as education, work, leisure, money, shopping, the future and the past.

To ensure that you are familiar with all basic Spanish grammar, the grammar covered in level A1 will be reviewed briefly. You will then learn more complex grammatical aspects, including sub-clauses using that/because/when, the imperfectoindefinido and perfecto (such as vivíavivíhe vivido), the futuro (viviré) and condicional (me gustaría vivir) tenses.

If you successfully complete this course, you will receive a certificate showing the level you have attained and you will be able to continue to Spanish level 4.


The intake procedure for this course comprises: intake interview, online test

After you have registered for this course, we will invite you for an assessment to determine your level. We recommend that you enrol at least two weeks before the start of the course. If you enrol later than this, we cannot guarantee there will be time for the intake procedure.

If you have completed the Spanish level 2 course at UvA Talen, an assessment will not be necessary.
