Beginner Spanish

The programs below accept students with Beginner Spanish. See guidelines below.


Beginner 1: “I can speak a little and understand at times if people speak slowly and clearly.”

  • I can understand and use familiar everyday expressions and simple phrases to get across basic needs.
  • I can introduce others and myself.  I can ask and answer questions for example where I live, people I know and things I have.

Beginner 2: “I can communicate simply when I am in familiar, everyday situations.”

  • I can understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment).
  • I can communicate simple and routine tasks requiring a basic and direct exchange of information. Examples include discussing weekend plans, asking for directions, planning social outings or going grocery shopping.
