Spanish is like music to the ears... Who wouldn't want to sing along with mariachis? With almost 500 million speakers, Spanish is the third most widely spoken language in the world. If you want to travel, do business, study or experience the beautiful cultures of Spain and Latin America, Spanish is a must. Did you know that the USA has the fifth largest number of Spanish speakers in the world?

These eight-week programs are held Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. All three levels use the book Pensar y aprender (Editorial Los Mayas) as the primary resource. Curriculum is designed for Latin American Spanish. However, teachers differentiate between the Spanish used in Spain and the Spanish used in Latin American countries. Books and materials are included in the course fee. Payment and registration must be received before the registration deadline.
The Level 1 Spanish course at Hansa covers the first half of Pensar y aprender. The class starts off with the Spanish alphabet and pronunciation and goes on to introduce Spanish nouns, articles, adjectives, and regular verbs, as well as basic irregular verbs like "ser" and "estar". Telling time, greetings, numbers, days of the week, the months, seasons, as well as other day-to-day vocabulary (such as food, clothing, & weather) are covered in the vocabulary section of this course.
This course uses the 3rd book of the Pensar y Aprender series, and continues to work on student’s communication skills. We review common tenses and look deeper into more complex grammar structures, including three different types of past tenses, conditional, the imperative and an introduction and practice to the subjunctive mood. We talk about current affairs in Latin America and Spain, and discuss art, traveling, and business within the Spanish-speaking culture.
Please note: material will be covered at the pace of the class; some of the above topics may not be covered, as the course will be geared towards the needs of the class as a whole. Some of the curriculum may be modified at the instructor's discretion.
