Learn to speak Spanish


Classes start the week of January 29, 2024 

PLEASE NOTE: Payment is required to complete your enrollment and secure your spot in the class of your choice.

Our theme: Speak More Spanish! No matter how much Spanish you know (or don’t know) our classes are designed to help you increase your ability to speak and understand Spanish.

We offer beginner and intermediate Spanish classes taught by fluent Spanish speakers. Learning Spanish as a second language improves communication and inclusion. It also enables community partners to better care for the Spanish-speaking community.

Our classes focus on the key elements of language learning: reading, writing, speaking, and listening. No prior experience with Spanish is needed!
