Course Description

See Reviews of Instructor David Nance


There are many reasons to study Spanish grammar, even though it is quite possible (and enjoyable) to learn Spanish without focusing on the grammar. Compared to English grammar, Spanish grammar is quite organized and methodical. This course focuses on why and how Spanish words interact in the ways that they do. It provides concise grammar explanations and engaging practice activities, and attempts to present the material in a way that makes it understandable and memorable.

Course Structure

This course is entirely self-paced. Students may enroll at any time and can work through it at their own pace. Some students may progress very quickly through the material (completing the course in a matter of weeks), while others may take many months to complete it. The lectures are built into the course and the assignments are self-graded, so students can work through everything as their individual circumstances dictate.

Who should enroll?

Some students simply feel drawn to grammar, while others want to study it in order to fine-tune their speaking and writing skills (particularly if they hope to test out of college-level classes, or plan to continue studying Spanish in college). This class is intended for students in grades 7-12 who have some previous experience with Spanish, not for students with no previous experience. It can serve as a companion class to our embedded (intermediate-level) Spanish courses or our Advanced Spanish course. It is quite possible, however, to be successful in the intermediate-level courses without taking this grammar course. Although intended primarily as a companion course to our other Spanish offerings, it is not necessary to be a student in one of those courses in order to enroll in this course.

David and Rachel Nance have been teaching Aim Spanish classes together for the last several years, in addition to working together to raise and homeschool their five children.  Both have deep roots with the Spanish language and with education.  In addition to living in Spain with their family in 2019-2020, they each previously lived in South America (David in Uruguay and Rachel in Bolivia) and have traveled extensively through Latin America and Europe.

David has a BA in Spanish Teaching from Brigham Young University, an MSE in Curriculum and Instruction from Arkansas State University, and a Master’s in School Management from the Universidad de Alcalá de Henares in Spain.  He has taught online Spanish classes since 2007, spent four years as the foreign language curriculum specialist at the Arkansas Department of Education, and worked for one year as an English language teaching assistant at a vocational school in Spain.

Rachel has a BS in Elementary Education, with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education.  She taught elementary school for four years before having children of her own. In addition to being fluent in Spanish, Rachel studied ASL for four semesters while she was in college.  When a Deaf couple started coming to her church four years ago, she finally got to put her learning into practice and became one of the interpreters for the couple. Rachel has taught Spanish and ASL classes in her home in addition to teaching for Aim Academy.

The Nances love spending time with their family.  They love to travel, learn languages, spend time outdoors, read, and play tabletop games.
