A continuation course for those who have successfully completed a beginner level class.
A continuation class for those who have studied a beginner level class. Develop grammar, learn more verbs, increase your confidence listening and responding to questions. Learn the vocabulary necessary to talk about what you do in your spare time, your daily routine, etc. We will introduce of reflexive verbs and the present continuous tense.
The amount of revision undertaken between classes can have a large influence on the final outcome for individuals. Each week, the course will build upon itself. We ask students to revise material between classes. In addition, a short homework exercise is usually set. We encourage you to set up a Duolingo Spanish account (www.duolingo.com) on your computer or smartphone and practise for 10 minutes daily. To get the most from your Spanish classes, we strongly encourage you to start on Duolingo today.

"Hi Anne, Thanks – we had a great Spanish 2 class and once again Sergio excelled as a teacher… so enthusiastic and committed to the language. I will be signing up for Spanish 3!! Cheers Susie"
Dec 2017: Just a quick note to say how fabulous I thought Sergio was as a teacher of Level 1 Spanish… I have been to other classes from time to time and would rate him among the best I have come across… what an asset to Selwyn to have such a polished teacher… I have already signed up for Spanish Level 2!

"My husband, Mike and I have been attending Spanish classes for the last eight weeks at Selwyn Community Ed. Sergio is our tutor and I wanted to let you know how much we have enjoyed the classes and we feel that we have certainly started down the path to learning Spanish. Sergio is a great tutor and he manages to strike the balance between making the classes enjoyable and at the same time ensuring that we are all learning. It is our intention to return next year to progress with “our” Spanish. Kindest regards Lynley"
