Full course description
Starts September 22, 2014
Quick, what does “cada día” mean? If you know, but don’t speak Spanish, this course is for you. We are a community of learners, sharing daily, practical conversations with each other. Native Spanish speakers from Colombia, Argentina, Mexico, Spain, and all over will join us and provide supportive feedback. The course offers eight modules, with simple and fun conversational activities. We ask participants to share their activities with others for feedback and further investigation. The goal is to make conversation available “cada día.” Optional Web meetings are available to share your conversational activities with native speakers.
Visit the course blog to learn more and sign up for an orientation web meeting before the course begins.
Topics covered include:
- Canción - ¿Cómo participar?
- Diccionario - ¿Cómo lo hago?
- Cuento corto
- Consejos para la Conversación
