  • Making hotel reservations and other travel arrangements

FOUNDATIONAL TOPICS COVERED:

  • Constructing sentences using present and future tense verbs

  • Pronouns and possessives
  • Counting up to 999,999 and expressing time

Spanish 1 has been designed to prepare you for the most important and common situations you'll face in your spanish learning journey. At the same time, you'll develop a strong foundation in how the language actually works, allowing you to go beyond simple stock phrases to actually building sentences yourself. This is a serious introduction to the language.

Right from the start you'll begin working with powerful structures and key vocabulary so that you can build useful Spanish sentences. After only a few sessions, you'll already be having meaningful interactions in a restaurant, and soon you'll be shopping, making plans with friends, getting around a city, going out for entertainment, and making travel arrangements with confidence.

You'll build upon these skills through practice with key verbs and adjectives so that you can express your needs and desires in diverse situations with considerable detail. As you learn how to use possessives, pronouns, and form future tense sentences, you'll expand your range of communication while adding an important level of depth to your interactions.

Further work on location along with important commands will round out your introduction to the Spanish language, leaving you well-prepared to dive into your experiences in the Spanish-speaking world.

Fluenz Spanish 2

Solidify your foundation and begin to acquire the tools for more serious engagement.

REAL-WORLD SITUATIONS YOU'LL ENGAGE IN:

  • Completing home and office tasks
  • Renting an apartment or a house
  • Discussing family
  • Talking about studies and profession
  • Weather
  • Scheduling, including making plans with friends and colleagues
  • Complex dining and shopping interactions
  • Advanced issues related to going out at night and entertainment

FOUNDATIONAL TOPICS COVERED:

  • Constructing sentences using past, present, and future tense verbs
  • Important irregular verbs
  • Conjugating the present progressive
  • Use of articles and object pronouns
  • Introduction to reflexive verbs
  • Comparatives and superlatives
  • More advanced preposition usage
  • Further work with noun genders

Spanish 2 picks up where the first level leaves off, deepening your grasp of the fundamentals through new verb tenses and conjugations, an expanding vocabulary, and a broad range of other key parts of the language. By the end of Spanish 2, you'll have begun to make substantial inroads into becoming a more serious Spanish speaker, ideally preparing you for moving on to a more intermediate level.

You'll begin perfecting your verb conjugations in the very beginning, including both past-tense and important irregular verbs. From there, you'll continue to build upon the structures learned in Spanish 1, so that your journey through this second level leads to more complex and meaningful interactions in restaurants, travel agencies, stores, and with friends.

You'll buy clothing from boutique stores and a cell phone for your trip; you'll enjoy local cuisine at restaurants, and visit museums with friends. And as your ability to express location—along with giving and understanding directions—grows, you'll find yourself thoroughly prepared for navigating any Spanish-speaking city or neighborhood.

As with all Fluenz programs, these critical scenarios provide the setting through which your grasp of the language's fundamentals is steadily developed. By enhancing your ability with the central topics covered in the previous level (such as articles, pronouns, verbs, and genders), you'll solidify your foundation in the Spanish language. Meanwhile, the introduction of new structures and vocabulary (such as reflexive verbs, comparatives, and superlatives) combines with more serious responsibilities, such as going to the doctor and handling office tasks, preparing you to engage more seriously with the Spanish-speaking world.

You also begin to develop the ability to connect with Spanish speakers around more personal topics.

By the time we arrive at Level 3, the foundation has been set for a pivotal moment of growth. Building upon all that has been learned in the previous levels, your depth and range of communication will quickly broaden.

Meanwhile extensive work on reflexive verbs—a very common feature in Spanish—and direct/indirect object pronouns will add a key dimension of complexity to your speech. In the end, other important topics, such as the formation of conditional sentences, the present progressive, and expressing opinions and preferences will combine with more real-world vocabulary to bring you to a impressive level of competency in Spanish.

Throughout the program, you'll use these skills at home and in the office, while talking to people about your studies and professional life, and in order to rent an apartment. You'll also shop, dine, and enjoy the entertainment that the great cities and communities of the Spanish-speaking world have to offer. By the end of Spanish 3, you'll have taken a major step towards becoming a serious Spanish speaker, capable of handling intricate conversations and complicated situations with confidence.

At the same time, you will acquire the necessary skills for integrating yourself more deeply in a Spanish-speaking community. You'll learn how to address issues of season and climate, open or close a bank account, and handle more complicated issues.

Spanish 5 builds on the skills acquired through the previous level, adding substantial layers of subtlety and sophistication to your ability with the language. You'll master complex grammatical issues like the use of the preterite vs. imperfect past tenses, speak more naturally through colloquial expressions, and communicate more fluidly with greater diversity in tone and structure.

As with all Spanish programs, these skills are developed over the course of 30 full sessions that will take you on a journey through real, daily-life experiences in the Spanish-speaking world. You'll plan memorable trips with friends, arrange meetings with colleagues, discuss the arts, and exchange delicious recipes.

Dive deeper into all areas of life. From managing your health and finances to taking advantage of the arts and participating in social media, Italian 5 allows you to experience the Italian-speaking world in full color. Build relationships as common acquaintances become friends and every interaction holds the opportunity to become a deeper member of the community.

You'll master complex grammatical issues like the use of the preterite vs. imperfect past tenses, speak more naturally through colloquial expressions, and communicate more fluidly with greater diversity in tone and structure.

As with all Italian programs, these skills are developed over the course of 30 full sessions that will take you on a journey through real, daily-life experiences in the Italian-speaking world. You'll plan memorable trips with friends, arrange meetings with colleagues, discuss the arts, and exchange delicious recipes.

By the time you complete this level, you will truly be an experienced Italian speaker.

After only a few sessions, you'll already be having meaningful interactions in a restaurant, and soon you'll be shopping, making plans with friends, getting around a city, going out for entertainment, and making travel arrangements with confidence.

You'll build upon these skills through practice with key verbs and adjectives so that you can express your needs and desires in diverse situations with considerable detail. As you learn how to use possessives, pronouns, and form future tense sentences, you'll expand your range of communication while adding an important level of depth to your interactions.

Further work on location along with important commands will round out your introduction to the Spanish language, leaving you well-prepared to dive into your experiences in the Spanish-speaking world.

As with all Fluenz programs, these critical scenarios provide the setting through which your grasp of the language's fundamentals is steadily developed. By enhancing your ability with the central topics covered in the previous level (such as articles, pronouns, verbs, and genders), you'll solidify your foundation in the Spanish language. Meanwhile, the introduction of new structures and vocabulary (such as reflexive verbs, comparatives, and superlatives) combines with more serious responsibilities, such as going to the doctor and handling office tasks, preparing you to engage more seriously with the Spanish-speaking world.
