Prerequisite: Please check with the instructor when joining the class for the first time. This class is geared for beginners, but, in practice, students with some previous study or exposure to Spanish also join and discover that lessons for beginning students also refresh memories and provide needed practice.

“Spanish 1” is a year-long course which starts anew every fall, becomes more complex in the spring, and then the summer classes round out the curriculum. In the beginning, students will learn basic sentence structures with listening and oral practice. Phonics will be taught for reading, and eventually for use in writing short passages with familiar vocabulary. After completing “Spanish 1,” students may wish to move on to “Spanish 2.” Anyone who chooses to repeat this course is welcome to do so if space is available for beginners. Our goal is to lay a good foundation for learning Spanish and to leave every class session saying goodbye plus a new phrase in Spanish.
