Start here if you've never studied Spanish before or if you've taken a decade off and need a refresher.
You'll learn the necessary foundation for fluency, such as introducing yourself, describing your likes and dislikes, and talking about your friends and hobbies.
With a small group (averaging six students per class and capped at ten), you'll have an opportunity to engage in conversational Spanish with other language learners with realtime feedback from the instructor.
By the end of our level one course, you’ll have the foundation to conjugate verbs in the present tense and be able to hold basic conversations, order food when dining out, or go shopping in Spanish.
