What you'll learn in this basic spanish class:

These courses are ideal if you plan to travel to a Spanish-speaking country, need Spanish on the job, or want to jump-start or refresh your Spanish. Unlike a conventional “immersion” program, our courses are completely understandable, which allows true, lasting language acquisition to occur in a way that feels effortless. 

Whether you’ve never spoken a word of Spanish or you’ve studied a textbook for years in high school, you’ll walk away from the weekend amazed at how much you’ve learned in such a short time.

This class is perfect for the complete beginner as well as anyone who has forgotten most of the Spanish they were taught in school. We emphasize the most commonly used words and phrases and get you understanding Spanish from the very beginning. The course is taught primarily in the present tense, although other tenses are also incorporated.

After the class session on Saturday, there is an optional (but highly recommended) social time in a Mexican restaurant for students to practice their Spanish in a real-life situation.

Elissa's teaching method is definitely not common, but it definitely helped and brought back the Spanish I had knowledge of many years ago. I find myself to be speaking more fluidly and with more confidence!

This is definitely the most fun language class I've ever taken. Elissa is endlessly inventive, so the class is never boring. Before you know it, you're putting all these new words together into simple sentences and starting to speak Spanish! The students are of different ages and backgrounds, but the atmosphere is so relaxed they're all friendly and supportive. Altogether, a delightful, rewarding experience.

I was so surprised by how much I learned in just a weekend. The class was lots of fun, very animated and with much laughter. I think the teaching method is great, and the instructor is a passionate and gifted teacher.

I have attended several weekend intensives with my husband and we can’t wait to sign up for the next round of classes. This is definitely the most enjoyable way to study a new language. We have so much fun in class that it doesn’t feel like “learning” and yet at the end of the weekend I can tell that we have acquired a lot of Spanish! Elissa is so good at bringing all her students out of their shells and creating a great classroom environment. where we can all be silly together. I highly recommend the immersion classes!

I am one of those people who gets flustered very quickly when learning languages, especially when learning languages in a classroom from a textbook. Usually things stop making sense and the whole process becomes nothing but a hotbed for anxiety and insecurity. I DID NOT have this experience when I went to the Express Fluency Beginner Spanish course. Elissa is basically pure positive energy in human form. Her approach of teaching us through what I think of as kindergarten-style learning takes away the sense of failure and fear. You are constantly listening and engaging in ways that make learning much more intuitive. You are never pressured to speak when you are not comfortable. The important thing is that you UNDERSTAND, something none of my other language classes actually focused on, which probably was why I would fall behind so quickly. These classes are long but you come out feeling confident in the work you've done. I would recommend this Spanish learning course above any other I've taken.
