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 Students may enroll at any time (although the course will not be published until August 26), and can work through it at their own pace.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 apply?

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 who have some previous experience with Spanish, not for students with no previous experience. This class 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.

Technology Requirements:

  • High speed, broadband Internet
  • Streaming video capabilities to watch recorded lectures

Evaluation and Feedback

Communication

Parents of prospective students are welcome to contact Sr. Nance through email with any questions they may have about the course (including questions about which course to enroll in).
