Beginner Class

Explanation:
This class will consist of eight 60-minute sessions, meeting once per week.
We will focus on pronunciation, basic vocabulary and conversational skills, as well as the uses of ser and estar. We will spend the majority of our time mastering pronunciation and familiarity with the language with various studying systems (writing, speaking, reading and listening). This class will be mostly in English, with Spanish phrases thrown in daily to start familiarizing your brain with this new language!Who can come:

This class is ideal for complete beginners, or for students who have had minimal exposure to Spanish or languages in the past. This class is also a good refresher for those who have taken beginner Spanish classes over five years ago.

Cost:

8 week sessions costs $100, which includes materials. There is a discount available if paid in cash.

Beginner/Intermediate Class

Explanation:
This class will consist of eight 60-minute sessions, meeting once per week.
We will focus on familiarity with the present, present progressive, and future tense. We will focus on more complex vocabulary, as well as daily conversation. This class will be a fair mix between English and Spanish. We will be practicing conversation every week, in order to help your brain move from familiarity to some comfort with this language and its sounds.Who can come:

This class is ideal for students who have had previous exposure to Spanish in recent years. Students who would benefit most would have a good grasp on pronunciation, and basic conversation, but are not yet fully comfortable with the present tense.

Intermediate Class

Explanation:
This class will consist of eight 60-minute sessions, meeting once per week.
We will focus on the past tenses (preterit and imperfect), as well as reflexive verbs. This class will have heavier workshop feel, as we will review many exercises to become familiar with these difficult concepts!Who can come:

This class is ideal for students who feel mastery of the present tenses and have a wide vocabulary. The students who will benefit most from this class will be able to instantly conjugate verbs in the present tense, and therefore focus their full attention on past, and reflexive verbs, without having to spend much time on conjugating them in the present first.

Intermediate/Advanced Class

Explanation:
This class will consist of eight 60-minute sessions, meeting once per week.
We will focus on the direct and indirect object (think le, lo, las, les). This is one of the most difficult things to get used to with Spanish, which is why we will be devoting all four weeks to this concept. Don’t worry, we will make sure to incorporate present, past and future tenses in every class, so that you don’t get bored! *wink* This class will mostly be in Spanish, with little English explanations.Who can come:

This class is ideal for students who have mastered the present tense, are comfortable with the past tenses, and want to tackle the direct and indirect objects! Students who will benefit the most from this class are already familiar with the past tenses, and can focus their full energy on the syntax of the subject/object relation.

Advanced Class

Explanation:

The focus of the advanced class rotates every term. Fall term we will review the subjunctive mood. Half of the class will be spent reviewing and practicing how to correctly use our main concept for each term. We always have a reading to work through, which we will discuss for the remaining half of the class.

Who can come:

This class is ideal for students who have mastered the present and past tenses, and need only reviews of diffcult concepts. Students who will benefit from this class, will be comfortable forming coherent sentences and eager to practice difficult concepts in conversation with little help from the teacher.
