Program

Spanish Courses.

Our professors are highly qualified and experienced professors of Spanish as a Second Language. They pay special attention to your learning style and make the class fun with various activities each day. Not only do the students learn Spanish grammar and writing, but extra emphasis is placed on listening, conversation and pronunciation. Another bonus of the program are the field trips in the package plans which include visits to the National Museum, parks and other downtown exhibits and events.

Upon arrival to the program, CALL students complete a placement test and interview to properly determine the level of Spanish needed. The CALL curriculum is divided into three levels: Basic (Pre-basic, Basic I and Basic II), Intermediate (I and II) and Advanced (I and II). Classes may be individual or small groups of students, depending on the student population that week. CALL classes are held year round as space permits. New classes normally begin on Mondays.
