Spanish level 8

Course information

Spanish level 8 is intended for students with an advanced knowledge of Spanish. Students should be familiar with several more advanced aspects of Spanish grammar (such as the past and future tenses imperfectoindefinido and perfecto) and should have a broad and active vocabulary (work-related and personal life).

This language course will improve your general language proficiency (reading, writing speaking and listening), but is primarily focused on increasing your vocabulary and on active speaking and writing. 

After successful completion of this course you will be able to conduct an employment interview and a business telephone call in Spanish, to write a review about a film and express your opinion about travel, the climate and art. A number of legal terms will also be introduced.

Upon successful completion of Spanish level 8 you will have an advanced command of complex grammar. Grammatical topics covered in the course include the difference between ser and estar.

If you successfully complete this course, you will receive a certificate showing the level you have attained.


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 7 course at UvA Talen, an assessment will not be necessary.
