August 19- 23, 2019, 9 am - 12 pm (lunch 12:00-12:30)
Open to students who will be taking Spanish 2 or Spanish 3 in the fall

Are you planning to take Spanish 2 or Spanish 3 in the fall?  Would you like to increase your Spanish skills? Do you need an extra boost to increase your knowledge?  Students answering yes to any of these questions will benefit from this one-week preparatory session. This class will reinforce and strengthen all four language skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. You will cook, put on a fashion show, use technology, shoot video with green screen to produce a weather report, and make other fun short films. You will sing and dance to Spanish music. While doing all of that, you will enhance your grammatical understanding of such concepts as articles, adjective and noun agreement, possessives, descriptive and demonstrative adjectives, single, double, direct and indirect object pronouns, comparative and superlatives, qué vs cuál, indefinite and definite words.  You also will review the present, preterite, present progressive and immediate future tenses of regular and irregular verbs. The class instruction will be in Spanish and will consist of brief group instruction followed by individual grammar work and exciting hands on projects.

Tuition:  $480.00

All materials and lunch will be provided.
