This class is the perfect way to start your Spanish learning journey. No previous experience needed. However, if you do have some familiarity with the language – you are encouraged to attend this class.
The focus in Starter Level is an introduction to the Spanish language and/or reinforcing what you already know. You will come away with a fresh perspective on how to learn another language.For instance; you learn everything starts with a sound. We begin by fine-tuning your ear to the phonetics and cadence of the language. With this, you will learn faster than you ever imagined. Vocabulary and expressions will come naturally, as you absorb the essence of the language.
It’s called raising the stakes! You communicate directly with native speakers in class, in real time, while being coached and guided by your instructor. We remove the vocabular exercises and books, replacing these techniques with true experiences allowing you to use Spanish in real life. Repeated exposure and immersion to the language creates new brain pathways so you can access what you learned quicker and more easily.
We learn words and phrases that allow us to form basic expressions. Not only in predesigned structure, but also using the necessary resources to articulate basic needs and wants.
We learn to express past, present and future thoughts and ideas using patterns of sounds for conjugations. We expand our vocabulary based on what we want/need to communicate.
Like a one-year-old child, we put emphasis in imitation and repetition for fluency and recognition of words in context.
In these classes we are going to grow your basic vocabulary into something more functional. The different tenses that helped us to express ourselves in Basic Level-1, will now be reinforced by developing more advanced structures.
Like children ages 9 to 15, language will help them to further discover the world around them, in Spanish, with complete structured expressions of our thoughts and ideas.
The phonetics will be perfected using rhythm, in a process of trial and error, and positive reinforcement.
You can communicate clearly and in detail concerning a wide range of subjects. Offering explanations of viewpoints pertaining to various issues and giving the advantages and disadvantages of various opinions.
We complete investigations, which is to say, compile information in order to process and discover conclusions. We communicate in Spanish with different parts of the Hispanic world and have success in obtaining what we look for. For example, making reservations at a hotel, shopping over the phone, etc.
Practice surrounds contemporarily themed discussions that should allow us to have an argument and maintain a conversation using specific lexical words for each theme.
In short, to be able to express yourself in Spanish and feel comfortable with your presentation while at the same time those listening to you also feel comfortable.
Here we will greatly develop your technical writing and listening skills.
