I love teaching is not just a bunch of words and grammar! With hard work, an open mind, and dedication you will have fun and fell confident using the Spanish language!

The objective of this course is to provide students with an intermediate/advanced understanding of the Spanish language, focusing on communication and proficiency.  This course focuses on the 3 modes of communication:  interpretive mode (understanding what is heard and read); interpersonal mode (speaking with another; writing informally); and the presentational mode (speaking in front of others; writing formally).  All 3 modes are practiced using knowledge of cultural products, practices, and perspectives.  We want students to use all 3 modes of communication in culturally appropriate ways. 

This class is treated as a college preparatory course and YOU will be treated as a college-bound, mature, and organized student! This course will challenge you and you will end up better for it! ¡Sí se puede!
