What you'll learn in this basic spanish class:

Basic Conversation is an immersion course, taught 100% in Spanish, that aims to practice all the basic simple and compound indicative tenses as students acquire vocabulary and gain confidence. 

Group activities, debates, articles, and relaxed conversation make this course an excellent way of improving your conversational skills.


Please note that, in order to register for this course, you should have scored at least 19 points on our Online Placement Test

Please note that, because we all learn at a different pace, 10 sessions at the Basic Conversation level may not be sufficient to reach an Intermediate Conversation level. 

Students should consider re-enrolling on the Basic Conversation Level to further improve fluency and proficiency before considering a higher conversational level. If you need help deciding, please request an oral assessment with us (it’s free!) and we’ll give you our insight.
