A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!

How does it work? Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.

Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.

The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.

Week One

Lesson 01 - Remember the Magic Circle?
Wednesday

This first lesson covers Spanish pronunciation to take you closer to the target sounds you will need to make when speaking Spanish. First, you will review Recipes 1 and 2, and pick up an additional speaking template associated with Recipe 2. At the end of this lesson, your pronunciation will be better, and you will know how to apply Recipes 1 and 2 to a variety of Spanish-speaking situations.

Lesson 02 - Living in the Past
Friday

You will spend quite a bit of time in this course learning about the past tense, and that topic starts in this lesson. Once you finish this lesson, you will know when to apply Recipes 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 to present and past tense Spanish-speaking situations.

Week Two

Lesson 03 - Get Into the Present
Wednesday

You will learn to pick up the pace by using exercises to help build up your speed in moving from one recipe to another. After completing this lesson, you will know lots of vocabulary words, verbs, and fun phrases. Perhaps most important of all, you will know how to use Recipes 1 through 7 in any Spanish-speaking situation.

Lesson 04 - Putting It All Together
Friday

In this lesson, you will learn to link your recipes so that you can move from one recipe to another without hesitation. Once you're able to do this, you'll be on your way to becoming more fluent in Spanish. Even so, there will be times when you will have a memory lapse and struggle to get the right words out. Not to worry—this lesson will show you how to handle those situations gracefully.

Week Three

Lesson 05 - You Talking to Me?
Wednesday

You will be much less egocentric after you finish this lesson because you will be able to reach out and embrace other people in your Spanish conversations. This lesson teaches you how to incorporate other people into your Spanish. By practicing Recipe 7, you will learn a range of ways to bring other people into your conversations.

Lesson 06 - Being Familiar
Friday

In this lesson, you will continue to practice incorporating other people into your Spanish conversations. You will also learn to carry on a conversation with some depth so that you can reduce your sentences to short and crisp bursts.

Week Four

Lesson 07 - I've Seen the Future
Wednesday

This lesson uses Recipes 1 and 7 to talk about the future. Besides having fun with Recipes 1 and 7 and the future tense, you will learn all about Recipe 8. This one teaches you to use would-related sentences in Spanish. When this lesson is complete, you will be able to get into the past, the present, the future, and the conditional.

Lesson 08 - Learning to Compare
Friday

While the focus of this course is to help you learn recipes for constructing Spanish sentences, you will learn a considerable amount of vocabulary along the way. In this lesson, you will take a pause from the recipes to learn to string lots of adjectives together. When you have completed this lesson, you will be able to speak like a poet—if you want to.

Week Five

Lesson 09 - Reviewing the Recipes
Wednesday

In this lesson, you will learn why so-called irregular verbs are not as irregular as you may have thought. There's a pattern to their so-called irregularity. By applying Recipe 7 to these irregular Spanish verbs, you will learn to use them in no time at all. You will also practice most of the recipes you have learned so far so that you can become even more efficient when conversing with Spanish speakers.

Lesson 10 - Learning Recipe 9
Friday

In this lesson, you will learn all about Recipe 9. This recipe will help you become a highly capable storyteller, making past and present events more interesting to your listeners. When you finish this lesson, you will have what it takes to say what you want to say with style and color.

Week Six

Lesson 11 - Being Possessive
Wednesday

This lesson is all the different ways to produce possessive expressions. You might know how to translate "My house is your house", but do you know how to translate phrases like: "This is mine, not yours. Whose is this? Is this hers? Oh, it's theirs, not ours."? This lesson will show you how. You will also get some time to practice the recipes and you will even pick up more vocabulary and fun phrases.

Lesson 12 - Irregular Verbs and Recipe 10
Friday

In this lesson, the stories you have been told throughout the course come to a surprising climax, but not before you learn all about Recipe 10. Armed with Recipes 1 through 10, you will be ready to go out and find some Spanish speakers to talk to.
