Business Spanish Prep Course -

Exam Preparatory Courses (for the Intermediate Certificate & Advanced Diploma) provide training in the skills assessed in the exam, and enable candidates to work with past papers to maximise their exam techniques.

Why should I choose this course?

This programme is ideal for students of Spanish wishing to obtain a business language qualification.

Candidates must demonstrate a sound knowledge of the language and specific business lexis, as well as the ability to communicate effectively in Spanish on a general social and professional level.

The exams are held once a year at Regent's University London and the University of Leeds. The Business Spanish Exam qualifications reflect the expanding role of Spanish as a language for international communication, particularly in the world of business.
