This class is for those who HAVE NO experience with Spanish or are in semester 1 of Spanish at school. If your student knows some words and understands some phrases, this is a good level. If your child knows nothing, this is a good level. All beginners.

This is considered A2 beginner/upper beginner Spanish. This class will focus on speaking about various topics and getting confident speaking, understanding spoken questions, answering questions and expressing ideas in Spanish. THE FOCUS IS FLUENCY, since if you are fluent, everything else comes with it (reading/writing, because they are already literate).

The most important aspect of learning a new language is attending class for interaction in Spanish - real fluency. Do not stress about doing anything outside of class, unless you want to have extra work (which we can provide and suggest, like Netflix shows). But again, what moves the needle with fluency is attending the conversation classes, not sitting in a room 'studying' language or reading books (books do not train your ears to HEAR the language nuances).

This class will be student-centered. We will get an idea of popular topics during the first class and focus on relevant, interesting conversations based on students' interests.

Curriculum will consist of the following:

- short film
- go over grammar ideas and vocabulary in a NON grammar way through conversation and usage and quick/question and answers
- discussion of film
- question/answer back and forth for ear training
- game or helpful activity to solidify new words
- questions and discussion about culture/language

Basic fluency takes 300+ hours of speaking and listening in a conversation (not just watching TV), so our goal is to give fluency by 3 years of consistent conversations about various topics. Consistency is the key. IF you miss a week, who cares! Miss a month? It's okay! Just get back in it. IF you can only attend once a week, just drop in. The goal is just not to quit.

Her teacher was great!

Improvements:

She loved everything! She was a little shy and not a fan of not having any other kids there with her. She just needs to do it more to feel more comfortable!

Loved:

The instructor is very responsive and engaging. After being in school all day it is hard to get my child to do another class, however, he always enjoys his time learning with Trufluency.

Improvements:

Supplemental recordings to go along with the lesson for students to listen to on days when they don't have class.

Her Bellieu Method for fluency is employed by all Spanish speaking native instructors who are professional teachers. The Bellieu Method focuses on speaking and a question/answer with stories method that gives faster progress than other methods since it creates constant conversation throughout the class.
