Level 1:  This level is divided into 3 classes:  Spanish 1 A, Spanish 1 B, and Spanish 1 C.  After the completion of Spanish 1 A, B, and C students will understand the fundamentals of Spanish grammar, which is key to speaking the language. Separating Level 1 into 3 classes will allow students to assimilate what they learn in a non-stressed, relaxing atmosphere while enjoying a cup of coffee.  Also, these classes will offer practical tips to the students for gaining exposure to Spanish.

Spanish 1 A:  This class introduces students to basic grammar concepts and allows students to apply what they learn during the conversational part of the class.  Starting from the first class, students will be empowered to write their own sentences based on the grammar they learn. Students learn rules of pronunciation, present tenses, and the most important Spanish verbs.  At the end of this class, students will be able to greet people, talk about themselves, understand the basics of ordering food, reserve a hotel room, and buy their own airplane ticket.  Also, students will be introduced to an easy way to speak in future tense.

Spanish 1 B:  In this class, students continue to learn more basic grammar concepts and apply them during the conversational part of the class.  This class reinforces the concepts learned in Spanish 1 A and introduces students to the verb "gustar". Upon completion of this class, students will be able to engage in a Spanish conversation using basic conversation skills.

Spanish 1 C:  In this class, students continue to learn more grammar concepts, the imperative mood, prepositions, and the first compound tense. Students will have the opportunity to apply what they have learned during the first classes.  This class will reinforce basic concepts in a practical conversational setting.  It will also be a refresher class to those intermediate students who want to re-enter Spanish classes.

After the completion of Spanish 2 A, B, and C students will understand intermediate and advance level grammar concepts and they will have a broader range of Spanish language skills.  Separating Level 2 into 3 classes will allow students to assimilate what they learn in a non-stressed, relaxing atmosphere while enjoying a cup of coffee.  Also, these classes will offer practical tips to the students for gaining more exposure to Spanish.

Spanish 2 A:  This class introduces students to intermediate grammar concepts and allows students to apply what they learn during the conversational part of the class.  Also, this class reviews the concepts learned in Level 1.  Students will write paragraphs instead of sentences; they learn how to transition from sentences to paragraphs.  Students will be introduced to direct and indirect object pronouns, simple past and imperfect.  At the end of this class, students will have an in-depth knowledge of the Spanish language.

Students learn irregular verbs in the simple past tense and the imperfect. Upon completion of this class, students will be able to engage in a conversation class using advanced conversation skills.

Spanish 2 C:  In this class, students continue to learn more grammar and will also be introduced to the future tense and the conditional. Students will have the opportunity to apply what they have learned during the classes.  This class will reinforce grammar concepts in a practical conversational setting.  Afterwards, students may need to repeat this class if they do not feel ready for Creative Conversation classes.

Students are encouraged to talk about their trips to Spanish-speaking countries, to share their adventures with the group, and their knowledge about the culture.
