Hi. How is this class structured? Immersion?

Hi Anthony! The class is not immersion. The course moves at a fast speed. In level 1, they will go through the basic present tense: ser/estar/haber. Informal future, dig between saber/conocer, regular and some irregular verbs in the present tense.

Beginning Spanish - Level 1
Reviewed by Anonymous on 8/13/2019
The instructor was very nice and enthusiastic but the literature was dated and it requires an update. In addition, the classes should follow the literature more closely because its currently very scattered and does not follow the notes which makes it very confusing so I got tired of not being able to follow along and stopped going to the class out of frustration. This needs to improve.
