NEW flexible beginners spanish course

Posted by La Catalina School on December 8, 2011, 1:56 pm

As we all know that life can get very busy here in La Manzanilla and sometimes there is not even enough time to learn Spanish! We are responding to the requests of various people who are asking for a more flexible immersion program to help them learn Spanish, without have to commit to our 15-hour/week Spanish immersion course.

So we are offering new flexible immersion programs for beginner’s in the mornings, which will run over a 2-week period. These courses will help you to be able to get around better in Mexico, doing important things like ordering food, talking about the weather, meeting local people and not feeling like you are not in hyper-space when someone is speaking Spanish to you. Our beginner’s semi-intensive course will give you just what you need to build confidence and not feel like a rooky anymore when it come to speaking and understanding some basic Spanish.

In this course, you will get the basics, including learning:

• The natural way to learn a second language
