    Both the casual learners and professional learners courses, offer 8-week class schedules. The casual learners classes are once per week. The professional learners classes are twice per week. Each session in the class schedule is 90 minutes. To earn a casual learning Spanish Language certificate, 6 courses of 8-week classes must be completed. To earn a professional learning Spanish Language biliteracy certificate, 12 courses of twice weekly 8-week classes must be completed. Each certificate will, also, require the passing score of a certificate exam with the ACTFL.

    Payment is due at time of registration. Call if you would like to make other payment arrangements (payments in 2 or 3 installments).
  • Can we reschedule or make-up any course class? What if a class is missed?
    Class attendance and participation is key to success. All assignments and chapters covered will be posted for the class to review on their own. If a student is unable to make it to class due to extreme circumstances (funeral, illness, etc.) it is considered excused. With advanced notice a teacher may be able to record the class (not guaranteed) . A tutoring session may be booked (at the expense of the student) if the student feels they need assistance with the material missed.
  • How should I prepare for my first class?
    Come with an open mind and be ready to learn. Be sure your computer and devices are charged. Have headphones with a microphone and be willing to speak. It's ok if you make mistakes; it is all part of learning! Students should have purchased the textbook and have something to take notes with. (See email for the course you enrolled in) Set yourself up in a quiet location where you can focus, free from distractions and be fully engaged in the class.
  • Will there be homework?
    Yes! Homework helps you practice what is learned during class time. Homework will be reviewed to ensure understanding of the concepts taught. There is no grade for homework (or anything really) but it is a key part to taking a student's learning to the next level of proficiency.
  • What if I fall behind in the course?
    Students are always welcome to book some 1:1 private lesson tutoring sessions to get back on track, or retake a course.
  • What if I can’t commit to a course but want to learn?
    Community events and conversation groups are a great way to learn and practice Spanish even if you do not have time to commit to a full course. Anyone is welcome to register for these events! Similarly, if you have to take a break from the course schedule, but want to continue learning Spanish, or if you want to continue to practice your Spanish skills with others after you have finished your program, these are perfect opportunities for you!
