Beginner Classes

Story learning is a process that is based on how human beings naturally learn their native language. It uses the power of story to teach you Spanish from the very beginning.

In Beginner 1 we build our foundation with the alphabet, numbers, adjectives, and regular verbs. We will also practice phonetics, pronunciation, basic grammar structure, and vocabulary for daily use.

Moving onto Beginner 2 we will develop more grammar concepts such as present tense irregular verbs, the immediate future, interrogative words, possessive adjectives and pronouns, the progressive form, impersonal sentences and finally comparatives and superlatives. It sounds like a lot, but I promise it will be very easy.

Graduating to Beginner 3 we will cover a few more grammar concepts like reflexive pronouns, indefinite adjectives and pronouns, the diminutive and the argumentative, and the regular past tense. From there we will dive into some Spanish concepts like por vs. para, imperative, and verbs like gustar.

Intermediate Classes

Intermediate ranks helps engage in authentic meaningful conversations that go beyond simple phrases. Lots of exposure to real, natural Spanish to help you reach fluency.

In Intermediate 1 we work on putting together the concepts from our beginner classes and work on further our Spanish foundations. In this level we will introduce the preterit (+ verbs with specials meanings in the preterit), tenses for regular and irregular verbs, and do and io pronouns, as well as working on our expression of certain situations (a completed action or a series of completed actions and a condition that is no longer in effect).

When you reach Intermediate 2 we begin to study the imperfect (past tense for descriptions), further study into the preterit (past tense for events), and prepositions. We will compare and see when to use each tense as well as explore the different uses of Se.

We start to finish off our tense work in Intermediate 3 with the present perfect, the past perfect, the future, and the conditional. We will also work on improving our conversational skills by learning about and using connectors in our speech.

You made it to Intermediate 4 congratulations! In this class we prepare yo to transition to the advanced level. We will focus on pronunciation and improving our vocabulary to sound more natural. This is a great class to shore up any weak points you may have before moving onto the advanced levels.

Advanced Classes

Becoming advanced in Spanish requires you to learn vocabulary and phrases. Conversational connectors and Spanish idioms will help you not only keep the conversation going, but sound more natural while you do it.

Welcome to the Advanced classes, in the first level we focus on reading and analzying the different grammatical topics in context. We also practice our conversational skills by talking about different social, cultural, and historical issues found in our reading material. Lastly some more review and practice of the subjunctive.

This level of Advanced classes is to continue conversational practice while correcting any weak areas. We will start to use local sources and podcasts for our additional material.
