Greetings from ChiFRA Spanish,
It’s that time again, perhaps a bit late getting started – on our part. Be that as it may, we’re cranking up this fall’s Spanish classes. So let’s get going…..
Rather than try to reconstruct last year’s classes (although we will do this as much as we can once we know who wants to participate) we’re just going to ask who intends to join the classes and what level they are at. As a starting point, we’ll use 10 September to 7 December for the dates and about 60 Euros for the cost of the 12 weeks. Understand that we need eight students per class to do it at that cost. We can schedule fewer students per class but it will cost a bit more. At the moment Flori is available until January; after that we’re not sure, and we’ll try to use the same venue (upstairs at the Casa del Pueblo).
If you’re not sure which level to study at the following will give you an idea:
Level One/Basic – a true “starter’s” class. You will be taught as if you have VERY LITTLE Spanish capability/experience. There was a notable demand for this level.
Level Two/Pre-intermediate – for the student who is not a “true starter” and has some basic experience and perhaps previous instruction. You have a basic vocabulary and understand some degree of verb categories and tenses. Taught mostly in English with some Spanish explanations, etc. included.
Level Three/Intermediate – for the student who is speaking Spanish, but not well. This student should be able to put together phrases with a variety of verb tenses. They have a pretty good vocabulary and are looking to start putting things together more correctly. The course will be taught mostly in Spanish, with limited English backup.
Level Four/Advanced – for the student who speaks Spanish pretty well. Speaks in full sentences with mostly correct verb usage/tenses. These students will have a very good vocabulary and WANT to be able to speak correctly using the appropriate tenses/number/gender, etc. The course
will include considerable conversation and will be taught completely in Spanish.
We look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience. Please respond to us at
