Class Overview

Spanish the Natural Way - Advanced Conversation & Grammar Review | Seattle Central College - Continuing EducationBuild upon your Spanish language skills and experience!

This class uses an experiential methodology, action, and humor to create a fun and low-stress learning environment.

Conducted entirely in Spanish, the class engages students in activities designed around poems, stories, interviews, role-plays, and games.

Review grammar and explore narrating the past, using multiple object pronouns together, future and conditional tenses, the subjunctive mood -- both present and past -- and more.

The focus and topics of this class will change each quarter, so you can continue to take this class throughout the year with new material, if you choose, to continue your Spanish education.

You will be expected to read in Spanish outside of class and do some fun and creative homework.
