Course Descriptions

 Crash Course Spanish | Basic

Hola, etc. ChalkboardThis course is ideal to take your first steps in Spanish because it will get you speaking fast! It is recommended for those who have very little or no previous experience with the language. In the most comfortable way, beginning with the first session, you will be introduced to the basic foundations of Spanish pronunciation, elementary vocabulary and useful phrases that will have you communicating in no time! You will learn tricks of the language that help you ask and answer questions, form sentences and get your point across.

Questions ChalkboardThrough oral activities and in-class exercises you will learn to communicate important personal information, navigate First Aid and doctor’s appointments, introduce yourself in a fluid conversational style and tell time. The teacher will highlight cultural notes specific to Panama, since Spanish is not spoken the same way here as it is in Argentina, Venezuela or Spain. She will also show you the similarities between English and Spanish, then teach you how to make the short leap to say what you want to say.
