This Spanish Program for Adults begins by instructing students on the four fundamental language skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing before progressively moving on to discussions of current events important to the Hispanic culture.
This course provides opportunities for students to develop and apply listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in the language of study. Students will communicate and interact in structured activities, focusing on matters of personal interest and familiar topics, and will read and write simple texts in the language.
Throughout the course, students will acquire an understanding and appreciation of diverse communities in regions of the world where the language is spoken. They will also develop skills necessary for lifelong language learning.
Students are encouraged to communicate in Spanish by following the communicative language method. The more they use Spanish, the more proficient and confident they become in speaking Spanish independently.
Join us this Fall in any of the Adults Spanish 1 – A1.1, and those who want to continue their Spanish learning during the Winter may do so in a Spanish 2 – A1.2.
More flexibility, a great digital platform with interactive learning resources, and small-size groups. Personalize attention, faster results!
