What you'll learn in this basic spanish class:

Okay, so you’ve been meaning to learn Spanish for a while now, and now you're ready to commit. Spanish Essentials is our intensive, fast-track offering. You’ll cover all of the basics that you’d normally learn in Spanish 1 + 2. This class is perfect for you if you're brand new to the language and you want to reach a conversational level as fast as possible.

Here's what to expect:

Know before you go
Our Spanish Essentials program is the outcome of our radically new approach to language learning. Designed for absolute beginners who want to achieve fluency fast, this course is perfect if you want to see quick results. This is also a great starting point if you’ve taken Spanish before, and feel that you need to brush up on the basics.

The nitty gritty
The basics of pronunciation. Number and gender agreement. Present tense. Reflexive verbs. Direct and indirect object pronouns. Everyday slang used by native speakers.

You'll be able to
Introduce yourself. Order food and drinks. Go shopping. Talk about your daily routine and what you like to do in your free time. Talk to a doctor. Make requests. Ask someone out on a date. Tell stories about past trips or celebrations.

Nervous? Don't be
From day one, you'll be engaging in meaningful conversation with your classmates and instructors. This will prepare you to feel confident and comfortable when speaking with natives.

Spanish Essentials is a course that meets twice per week with a total of 24 sessions.
