Spanish Lesson Course Descriptions and Schedule for January 2014


We have always taken Spanish lessons from our good friend Julie, here is her Spanish lesson schedule for the upcoming season. She is a fantastic teacher and has great lesson structure. If you are in the area, and would like to learn more Spanish, Julie is definitely one of the first teachers I would recommend.


Spanish Lessons start back up this January.

Level 2 Ser v.s. estar, present progressive, simple future (ir + a + infinitive), idioms of tener, stem changing verbs (“shoe verbs”) [if time, an introduction to verbs that take indirect object pronouns such as “gustar”)

Review (Repaso) An overview of the present tense forms of regular and irregular verbs, verbs like gustar, and past tense forms as time allows. The flow and progression of the class will depend on the needs of the participants. This is a good class to take if you have had Spanish before and would like a little refresher before settling into a level 3 or Conversation course.

Conversation It is suggested that one can recognize and apply the concepts of level 1-3 when joining this class. This course will be intensive reading comprehension and conversation. We will read articles, short essays and stories. We will discuss the significance of the readings within the context of Mexican society, as well as our own culture. There will be tidbits of grammar thrown into the mix to keep the concepts fresh.

    Hola Julie,
    I spoke to you about 2 weeks ago re: Spanish lessons. My husband and I are still interested in lessons during February.
    I wonder if you could send us your current information and schedule.

    Hi Kurt!
    My husband and I are currently in the initial stages of moving from Canada to Merida- and I stumbled across this blog in my quest for more information. If you have time would I be able to email you a few questions? We have two boys also (ages 5 and 2) so I am hopeful you will have time to have a quick e-chat. Thank you in advance, and thanks for this blog!
