Once you arrive, we establish your proficiency level through a placement test. That will determine your entry point into the module sequence. Your rate of progress and time in the program will determine if you can finish the entire program and graduate to the advanced-level.
The objectives of this program are to teach you basic grammar structures, so that you can attain fluency in Spanish conversation.
In addition to an intensive grammar study, you learn practical vocabulary that you need for your professions. Role-playing, specialized professional texts and other pertinent exercises maximize your technical fluency.
The course is designed for, but not exclusive to, professionals in the fields of business, diplomacy, law, medicine, religion and social work.
