¡PRÁCTICA – PRÁCTICA – PRÁCTICA!. This class will continue to practice Spanish in order not to forget what we have learned in the past and discover new vocabulary. Don't shy away just because you feel at a basic stage or have a limited command of the language. Just join into the group's participation and be part of the fun. Your current proficiency in the language will improve with your participation. There is always something new and different. Everyone shares their experiences and/or activities.  The teacher brings exercises to practice dictation, reading or clarify misunderstandings caused by literal translation.  This class is for those with a basic knowledge of Spanish, or for those who have participated in previous classes, for those that would like to brush up on their skills, or for “AMIGOS” who would like to connect to others also learning the language. Join our group and enjoy the visuals! No discounts or vouchers.
