Outline

Week 1

Start the course by working on pronunciation of all the sounds in Spanish we don’t have in English. Then, you'll learn when and how to use the preterite and the imperfect when describing events that happened in the past, and you'll learn an assortment of time phrases that will help you reinforce your use of the past tense.

Week 2

Review the recipes that you’ve learned in previous courses and what it takes to transition smoothly from one recipe to another. Then, practice helpful drills to help you know when to use ser and when to use estar.

Week 3

Focus on distinguishing the preterite from the imperfect tenses. Then, learn a few new verbs while reviewing Recipes 1 through 6. After that, we'll move on to an in-depth review of Recipe 7, which will give you options on how to package past events.

Week 4

Understand how to use so-called irregular Spanish verbs, because you'll know the underlying pattern of these verbs. Then, earn how and when you can change the word order around. You’ll also review reflexives, and then you'll learn some new ones and run them through a number of recipes.

Week 5

Learn how to incorporate particles into your conversations and a host of new verbs that you can use in your everyday Spanish conversations. Then, review the would verb phrases and their capacity to express probability. You’ll also learn how to express the future and a number of phrases that can trigger the subjunctive.

Week 6

Build on what you’ve learned so far by practicing. Finally, you’ll learn the present and past subjunctives. When you finish this lesson, you’ll have the tools you need to read, write and say whatever you want in fluent Spanish!

FAQs

When can I get started?

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

How does it work?

Once a course 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.

How long do I have to complete each lesson?

The interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes two weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.

What if I need an extension?

The final exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the final exam has been released, you will have two weeks plus 10 days (24 days total) to complete the final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.
