NEW Super Intense Conversational Spanish Course !!!
One of the results of our staff meeting
today is a new 2 week Spanish course, more intensive than a normal 2 week course. One
of the benefits of this design is more practicum and more hours in learning situations with less housing costs and
less time "away from home" for busy individuals.
Basically this is the design:
a. Each day has a specific theme. For example Monday's theme would be
"Cordialidad". This would entail meeting people, leaving
the presence of
a person or place, and presentations.
b. Tuesdays theme would be public transportation. Wednesday's would be
eating out. Thursday would be "the home". Friday would be the Park.
c. The proposed daily schedule would be 9am to 12 noon
setting) with a 15 to 20 minute break. The afternoon session would be
from 4pm to 7pm. This
practicum would be outside the classroom,
taking place in various settings around the city.
d. Instead of 4 hours of daily instruction, it would be 6 hours, or 30 hours a
week instead of 20 hours.
The student will be free from 12 noon until
4pm. Monday through Friday.
e. Sundays would be completely free. On Saturdays, planned activities
would be available for those students who wish to participate.
f. The cost of this 2 week course would be the same as
the 3 week Spanish
of 60 contact hours but the 60 hours completed in only 2 weeks.
per instructional hour remains the same. The savings is in
meals, and time. In addition, there is considerably more
g. NOTE: This same daily schedule can be applied to longer periods of
time, thus completing more instruction in less time. For example, the six
week course can be completed in only 4 weeks; and the 4 week
course in only two and a half weeks! This is a great opportunity
for those with a limited time frame!
Official Mexican Holidays will be observed in all cases.
