Immediate communication in Spanish is the goal of the course. The method stresses the development of speaking skills and listening comprehension through controlled oral practice. Vocabulary is related to the areas of activity of daily life. Grammar explanations are simple and practical, allowing the student to make immediate use of them in speaking. Rules are used actively: through exposure and practice, the correct forms begin to sound right to the student’s ear.
We have found texts for Spanish instruction to be limited in many ways, particularly with adhering to students learning styles. Therefore, we have found manuals published by the Spanish Department of Universidad de Buenos Aires to be the most effective method for instruction. To supplement these materials, we provide a variety of instructional tools designed by professional staff. Materials might include handouts, visual aids and auditory listening exercises.
