Advanced Beginner (novice mid - novice high)

This class is designed for students continuing from the beginner class, and for those who have had some Spanish experience in the past.


Intermediate (novice high - intermediate mid)

This class is designed for students with a beginner level foundation of Spanish who are ready to take the next step in their Spanish language acquisition.


Advanced Intermediate (intermediate mid - advanced low)

This class is designed for students coming from the intermediate class, and for those who already have a foundation in Spanish and want to advance their skills, or refresh previous skills.


Advanced (advanced low and up)

This class is designed for students that have a high level of confidence in their Spanish language skills. This class allows for more challenging materials and more complex communication.


Family Spanish

In this mixed age and mixed level course, students ages 6 and up, will have an opportunity to enhance their Spanish language skills. For students with no background, they will have an opportunity to receive a lot of input in the language, creating their language foundation. One of the things that we know from second language acquisition research is that we often acquire more quickly and more deeply when we listen to other people interacting in the language. For those with some Spanish background already, this course will provide a lot of input to firm up their language acquisition as well as provide an opportunity to improve conversational skills.

Spanish for Spanish Teachers

In this online class, you will have a chance to use your Spanish in a richer way, connect with other teachers, and experience what it’s like to be receiving Comprehensible Input at an intermediate/advanced level. Each 1 hour class will allow you to engage in casual conversation, discuss material provided in advance in breakout groups, and gain access to new materials that you can also use or adapt in your own classroom. It’s a great way to boost your own proficiency and gain confidence in what you already have but don’t get to use often.
