BASIC SPANISH

Tapas, fiesta, cerveza – want to know more Spanish than just these words? If you’re curious about discovering the wonders of the Spanish language and culture throughout Spain and Latin America, then our basic Spanish course is for you! In our A1 level, our native-speaking teacher will give you basic language tools to get you underway with the commonly used expressions and vocabulary you need for everyday situations. At the end of the A1 level (made up of A1.1 and A1.2 courses), students will be able to:

  • Carry out basic conversations including greetings, introductions, questions, confirming information, and saying goodbye
  • Give and ask for general information about people, places, situations, and actions in the present tense
  • Describe themselves, get to know others, and distinguish between formal and informal “you” (tú and usted)
  • Give and ask for opinions and preferences and make comparisons
  • Talk and ask about time, date, and location
  • Ask for information in a public place, for directions, and about prices
