Escuela Cervantes - 1+2 opens many doors

The 1+2 has created many anxieties among MFL practitioners. I will outline how the teaching of Spanish has helped to open new opportunities. Some of the CPD language activities in Spanish will be used in this presentation. You are encouraged to take part regardless of the level of Spanish you may have. The Escuela Cervantes Malaga has donated one week immersion tuition to give away for those who sign up and attend this workshop.
