Class Overview

Spanish the Natural Way - Beginning | Seattle Central College - Continuing EducationThis class is for those who want to start learning Spanish from the ver beginning, like a child acquiring language…naturally.

Or, if you have ever traveled to a Spanish-speaking country and realized your phrase book is not that helpful because you can’t understand the answers to your questions, then this is the method for you!

Or maybe you’re looking for a different approach — something besides memorizing verb conjugations.

This interactive, comprehension-based course uses the innovative methods of The Natural Approach and Total Physical Response (TPR).

You’ll learn vocabulary through action, games, commands and props — the same way we learned our first language — the natural way.

Learn while having fun!
