The main goal of this course is to assist the student to communicate effectively in Spanish. The course is designed for the development of the basic language skills: listening and comprehension, speaking, reading and writing. The course is aimed at communication, and the student will have the opportunity to practice the language in a variety of contexts, and to expand the grammar and vocabulary. Classroom activities encourage communication, which is a central component of this course. The class is conducted in Spanish.

About the Instructor:
After a long journey from Cuba to Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Pennsylvania and Ohio, Esther Gentile finally arrived in Washington, DC in 2013. She graduated with a Bachelor of Art History from the University of Havana and finished her Master’s Degree in Latin American and Latino Studies at American University. For the past two years, she has taught Spanish for beginning and advanced students at University of Washington, DC. In her own words, “Spanish is the subject I teach, but overall, my objective is to motivate, inspire, encourage and lead people. Teaching gives me the opportunity to encourage people and to help them to believe in themselves.”

This course is offered in 4-, 8- and 12-week sessions in order to offer flexibility. If you must miss a class, you are welcome to attend a make-up class at Hill Center. A minimum of 4 students required for this class to occur. Students will be informed if the minimum is not met.
