Students have to take the Initial Assessment and Placement Test before course enrollment.
A trained bilingual native speaker will conduct a quick administrative assessment of your Spanish proficiency to effectively determine which course and level would best meet your learning needs followed by a more professional initial assessment of your listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills administered by an experienced multilingual on-line educator. After determining your Spanish proficiency and personal study preferences, a custom study plan will be created to reach your desired Spanish proficiency level in a timely manner.
Focusing on core skills necessary for everyday Spanish use, you will develop a thorough understanding of the grammatical elements of the Spanish language ranging from basics to a mastery of grammar concepts, providing you with confidence in the target language as I or a native Spanish speaking teacher assist you in building your fluency level in Spanish. Students analyze real-life written and spoken Spanish in order to develop a profound understanding of the Spanish grammar system. Short writing assignments are an important part of the class, allowing students to demonstrate that they can understand and effectively apply grammatical meaning distinctions. Spanish improvement is 100% guaranteed.
Both live instruction in a virtual classroom and supplementary interactive language lessons will facilitate vocabulary development. Thematic lessons geared towards specific contexts and situations will ensure that you are able to not only survive in a full immersion environment but also thrive as your Spanish proficiency dramatically improves. This course stresses communication between both students and teacher in the target language as the medium of communication.
