In the United States learning a foreign language is not simple and natural as in multilingual communities. Students arrive to the classroom with unrealistic expectations and fears. The result is that students do not excel or lose time trying to understand what might interfere with their progress. Part of learning a foreign language is recognizing how to overcome levels of resistance that inhibit success in language acquisition.
This intensive Spanish camp weekend will start by recognizing these important factors while at the same time exposing students to basic conversational Spanish, numbers, common verbs, days of the week, months, food and targeted vocabulary. This course will provide learners with a foundation that will allow them to work in a Spanish-speaking language community and allow them to continue to develop linguistically once the weekend ends.
