Spanish classes this summer will be offered at the Goodman Community Center and Edgewood College
Levels 1-3 will take place at the Goodman Community Center
(149 Waubesa Street, Madison, WI)
Past participants have said:
"It is amazing to me how quickly we have been able to build on the foundation that we've been given in class so that we are functional and more comfortable with the language. This class is light-hearted and gets you moving and speaking Spanish."
"The class is convenient, set up for people who are working and appeals to adult learning styles of 'I need to know this' or 'I always wanted to know that.' It is manageable and stimulating."
"I appreciate the focus on conversational vocabulary and topics I might use if I were speaking to someone. The TPR or immersion philosophy is excellent in helping the new words and concepts to sink in and be easily remembered. The fact that the class is in Spanish stretches me a little more each class."
Registration form and fee are due by Friday, May 31. Space is limited, so register soon!
