Curriculum

Spanish Gwinnett offers a sequence of Spanish classes for adults that takes participants from the absolute beginner level to the high advanced level. Participants with some knowledge of Spanish should have a placement consultation with us before deciding what class to join. The main focus of the classes is oral communication (listening and speaking), but writing and reading are also part of the curriculum. In order to make our focus on oral communication possible, the number of participants in each class is limited to 10 members. Participants are expected to buy class materials (textbook) and do homework.
