How to determine the class you should be in:

 

Beginner classes consist of students who have no experience with any type of Spanish through the student who may have had some Spanish in high school or college or perhaps has learned some at work or through travel.

 

Intermediate classes consist of students who have had at least 2 years of college level Spanish instruction, they learned from native speakers, or have had extensive experience with travel such as an extended study abroad/immersion experience. This class is primarily taught in Spanish with emphasis on vocabulary and tends to move very quickly. 

 

Advanced study students are accommodated in the intermediate class supplemented with private instruction from the teachers as desired by the student.

 

We rely on your honest evaluation of your abilities and try to challenge each student at the appropriate level. Please carefully consider your class placement so that you and your fellow students all recieve the most benefit from the conference as possible. The teachers may help you determine if you are in the correct level once you are at the conference.
