Our students are our second family! Don't expect a traditional class setting like your high school class :). Be prepared to have fun, relax, laugh, make friends, and learn Spanish! Our small group classes will give you plenty of opportunities to speak in Spanish.
Sessions usually run for eight weeks. The material covered will depend on the students' needs so that more concepts can be taught at each level. More than covering a curriculum, our goal is to help you to use and speak the language. In addition, we will give you plenty of resources and tips to help you continue practicing the language regularly on your own.
BASIC BEGINNER 1 - For those with little or no Spanish knowledge. This session will help you take baby steps into the language with the foundations of Spanish pronunciation, reading, and writing. You will learn vowels and consonant pronunciation, greetings, question words, class commands, colors, numbers, articles, and possessive adjectives. After this level, you will have enough vocabulary to start a basic conversation.
BASIC BEGINNER 2 - For those who have completed Spanish Basic Beginner 1 or previously studied Spanish.
This session will focus on subject pronouns, verbs to be (ser, estar), places, directions, feelings, opposites, occupations, house vocabulary, and family. You will be so proud of yourself when you start making your questions and answers and understand the first episode of our favorite telenovela (soap opera).
BASIC BEGINNER 3 - For those who have completed the previous level or have previously studied Spanish and have a good understanding of the verbs "ser" and "estar." In this session, you will learn about regular verbs in present tense, possessive adjectives, 'Tú" command, the verb "gustar," and similar ones. You will feel more confident asking and speaking in Spanish.
BEGINNER ADVANCED LEVELS - It is recommended for those who have completed Spanish Beginner Level 3 or who have studied Spanish previously and have a good understanding of the basic grammar rules, subject pronouns, "ser" and "estar," regular verbs in the present tense, and how to ask questions.
You will be introduced to irregular present tense, reflexive verbs, and more vocabulary at this level.
INTERMEDIATE LEVELS - It is recommended for those who have completed the previous levels or studied Spanish and can comfortably converse in the present tense.
This level introduces students to new verb tenses, including the two past tenses (preterit and imperfect), future tense, and conditional tense. These tenses will boost your ability to discuss the present, future, and past. We will also cover direct and indirect objects, and "por and para."
ADVANCED LEVELS - It is recommended for those students who have completed the previous levels or who have previously studied Spanish and can comfortably converse using the tenses taught in the earlier levels.
At this level, the students will learn about the compound perfect tenses: present perfect, past perfect, future perfect, conditional perfect, and the subjunctive tenses. Students at this level can speak confidently, with more precision and fluency, about ideas and current issues around the world, using all of the verbal tenses to near perfection. With better intonation and a more extensive vocabulary, students can read complex literature with less dictionary use and begin to better understand television, radio, films, word games, and most importantly, native humor.
MASTER CONVERSATION LEVEL - Master Conversation is our most advanced level. It's aimed at students with almost bilingual fluency who feel they could still widen their vocabulary, learn "dichos" and idiomatic expressions. In this class, you will enjoy listening to the audio of Spanish conversations to improve auditory skills, deepen your knowledge of Latin American culture, and converse about a broad range of topics.

" I've taken multiple Spanish classes through the years. I have to say that I learned more from Lake Norman Language Academy in just the few short weeks than I learned throughout my high-school and college years. If you really want to learn how to speak the language, this is the place to go."

"Abigayl, as we near the end of my first Spanish course I wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed learning with you. At my age, I must say that I was somewhat hesitant and intimidated starting back to school. However, your style of teaching calmed me from the very first class. The learning is non-threatening and a lot of fun. I look forward continuing. Thank you for all of your help."
