$45

with Mercedes Vidal

Calendar Sep 6, 2022 at 1:30 pm, runs for 4 weeks

In this class we will practice and build on the basics learned in level one. As we build our vocabulary, we will converse more about familiar situations such as shopping, dining out, family members, weather, and travel tips. We will improve our understanding of grammar by writing, reading and pronouncing with increased conversation. We will also discuss cultural traditions, holidays and history. We try to make learning Spanish interesting and fun!
