During this 8-week course, students will learn to communicate more effectively in Spanish through a focus on enhanced listening, comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing skills. The class will be conducted in Spanish in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere that will emphasize positive interaction with the teacher and other students, providing a variety of contexts for expanding grammar and vocabulary. The students will be able to see the progress very soon and enjoy the interaction in an intimate class setting of 4 to 12 students.
All the materials and exercises will be distributed by the teacher.

This is an 8-week course. To provide some flexibility, Hill Center offers the option to purchase 4 sessions for $169. This way, you can attend 4 classes over the course of 8 weeks; however, you are responsible for keeping current with the workload. A minimum of 4 students will be required for this class to occur. Students will be informed if the minimum is not met.
