While I don’t use “MOOs” much any more, my MundoHispano, the world’s first (1994) large Spanish-language social network, has been re-opened and available to anyone who wants to meander through its thousands of rooms.

Upcoming Spanish immersion course
July 9-13, OR weekend of July 13-15, 2018

For those who have studied Spanish in the past and have at least been exposed to regular, irregular and stem-changing verbs in the present tense, use of prepositions, and use of object pronouns. Doesn’t mean you have to be great at it! You would want a review of the above and would be ready to be introduced to the past tenses and the subjunctive mood.

This will be an immersive experience in that you will be using Spanish to the best of your ability for 4-5 hours per day for five straight days: in class 10am-3pm with a 1-hour lunch break. I will suggest follow-up activities for those who have the time and energy for homework but I won’t depend on anyone actually doing it. 😉

If it’s over the weekend, it would be two hours on Friday evening, then the above schedule on Saturday and Sunday.

Classes are a mixture of exposure to new concepts and vocabulary, practice with forms, and a lot of conversation. The atmosphere is relaxed and hilarity is guaranteed to ensue.

The course will most likely be taught in Easthampton, MA, or somewhere near there. The cost of the full week’s tuition is $260, or $130 for the weekend.

Please contact me for more information, to sign up, and/or to receive recommendations from my previous students.
