Our students are our second family! Don't expect a traditional class setting like your high school or college 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 with 1.30 hr of instruction in each class. More than covering a curriculum and teaching grammar, our goal is to help you apply the class material while speaking and understanding the language. Some classes can cover more or less material according to the student's progress. In addition, we will give you plenty of resources and tips to help you continue practicing the language regularly on your own.
BEGINNER LEVEL 1 (12 hours) - For those with little or no Spanish knowledge. This course will help you take baby steps into the language with the foundations of Spanish pronunciation, reading, and writing.

This course will focus on indefinite articles: "un. una, unos, unas", subject pronouns, verbs to be "ser, estar," and interrogative words: "dónde, cómo., quién ".
Vocabulary: places, feelings, opposites, occupations, and house. 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).
All these concepts are applied to a dynamic class where speaking is hard to avoid. :)

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 worldwide, using all 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 understand better television, radio, films, word games, and most importantly, native humor.

" 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."
