Description:

  • Our Introductory Spanish 102, Part 2 course is specifically designed for adults (and children over 10 yrs) who wish to continue their Spanish learning, and who have taken our Spanish 101 course. It continues learning begun in Spanish 101 with basic spoken conversational Spanish, introductory grammar, vocabulary, and reading practice. Students who have some knowledge of basic Spanish, but feel that the Spanish 101 course may be too basic for them, are welcomed to enrol in Spanish 102. Please drop us an email if you are unsure, and we’ll get you in touch with our language instructors to help place you in an appropriate level course.

  • Subsequent Terms reinforce both reading and writing, and focus on additional grammar, conversation and increasing one’s vocabulary.

  • Please note that this course is only offered if sufficient numbers register. Please contact us (via the form on our Contact page using the Menu Bar above) if you are unsure about registering. If you do register, and this course is cancelled due to low enrolment, please be advised that we will refund your tuition in full

This course has distance-learning options for those unable to attend the live class sessions in Hamilton. Students have three options for attending our courses once they have registered:

  • Attend in-person classes in our Hamilton classrooms at the regularly scheduled day and time.

  • Attend our live on-line classroom sessions via Zoom at the regular scheduled day and time.

  • Watch the live-recorded class sessions at your leisure, at a time, day and place more suited to your schedule.

Distance-Learning option:

  • In addition to our in-person classes in Hamilton, our courses offer distance learning options for those unable to attend classes in-person. Live-streamed Hamilton classes are available via free Zoom software for those living outside the Waikato.

  • Those unable to attend the scheduled date and time of the actual class sessions, or those who need to miss a class or two due to previous engagements or unexpected illness, can watch any or all of the live-recorded video sessions on their computers, laptops, tablets or mobile devices and study at their own pace and in their own time.
