Question

Why would the Academia Villabonita be ideal for these young people? Mention two things.

  1. Adela wants to be a hairdresser but she has no previous experience. She has a young child so would ideally like a part-time course and she'd prefer a course with a possibility of getting some practical experience.
  2. Diego has some experience as a chef but would like to get some formal qualifications. At the same time, he failed some of his exams at school and would like to resit some of them.
  3. Sarah is English and has come to Spain to live with her parents. She is keen on photography and would like to get some sort of qualification in it. She would also like to learn some Spanish.
  1. Adela. There is a course in basic hairdressing (curso de peluquería básico). There are part-time courses (cursos a tiempo parcial) and they offer work experience in companies (experiencia laboral en empresas). (Any 2 of these 3 answers are correct.)
  2. Diego. There is a higher certificate in cookery (certificado superior en cocina) and support and revision courses available for students who want to re-sit their exams. (cursos de apoyo y recuperación por ESO y Bachillerato - ¡repite tus exámenes!) Any 2 of these 3 answers are correct.
  3. Sarah. There are photography courses at all levels from beginners to professionals. (cursos de fotografía - a todos los niveles desde principiantes hasta profesionales.) There are also Spanish courses for foreigners, inviting you to learn Spanish in Spain. (Español para extranjeros - ¡aprende español en España!) Any 2 of these 3 answers are correct.
