Spanish Reading For Beginners
This low-stress, fun class is conducted in English and is for anyone who enjoys the puzzle of another language. Do you know no Spanish at all? Or maybe you’ve forgotten what you once learned? Through this class, students will understand written Spanish more and more as the weeks go by. We start out with vocabulary card games for the most common Spanish words. We also discuss words that are similar but not identical in the two languages. Working together, we’ll read short passages and understand the main points. A lending library is available in class, and if students feel ready, they may select their own reading material, including children’s books. Students are encouraged, but not required, to work in teams. The instructor will explain useful grammar points as needed, as well as ideal learning strategies for adults. Along with improving students’ comprehension of written Spanish, the class may help build students’ listening and speaking skills. Another benefit is that students will be part of a welcoming community of language enthusiasts.
