Which level is
right for me?

 

Aventuras 1:

This course is perfect for you if...

  • You're a true beginner (you can say "hola" and maybe count to 10 and that's about it...)

  • You took a couple semesters of Spanish in high school or college, but it has been a long time. You remember some words and phrases (maybe even random lists of words, like "airport vocabulary"), but can't put it all together.

  • You're not ready to speak. You can't speak spontaneously in full sentences, even to complete simple tasks. 

  • You have a good bit of memorized vocabulary but have trouble stringing words together

  • You are unable to answer simple questions in Spanish:

    • ¿Cuántas personas hay en la foto? 

    • ¿De qué color es la casa? 

    • En la foto, ¿la niña está corriendo o bailando? ¿A ti te gusta bailar?

    • ¿Cómo se llama la niña?

    • ¿Quién tiene la pizza? 

    • ¿Dónde está el hombre?   

Aventuras 2:

The Aventuras 2 course is perfect for you if...

  • You can recognize the highest frequency words in context (hay, es, tiene, quiere, puede, va, ve, ya no, todavía, también, etc.)

  • You took at least 2 semesters of Spanish in high school or college and the information is still fresh in your mind. You can form simple sentences in Spanish.

  • You like to experiment with the very basic Spanish that you know. You can string some words together and communicate at a very basic level.

  • You can answer simple questions in Spanish:

    • ¿Cuántas personas hay en la foto? 

    • ¿De qué color es la casa? 

    • En la foto, ¿la niña está corriendo o bailando? ¿A ti te gusta bailar?

    • ¿Cómo se llama la niña?

    • ¿Quién tiene la pizza? 

    • ¿Dónde está el hombre?   

Aventuras 3:

The Aventuras 3 course is perfect for you if...

  • You can recognize the highest frequency words in context (hay, es, tiene, quiere, puede, va, ve, ya no, todavía, también, etc.) in both the present and past tenses. 

  • You have taken the equivalent of 3-4 semesters of high school or college-level Spanish or at least 40 hours of class with me. 

  • You are able to understand long stories in Spanish in both the present and past tenses when the instructor speaks clearly and slowly (with the help of illustrations and gestures). 

  • You like to experiment with the Spanish that you know. You have fun stringing words together to see what you can communicate. 

Aventuras 4:

The Aventuras 4 course is perfect for you if...

  • You are able to speak about a variety of topics (albeit imperfectly) using the most-frequently used words in Spanish (hay, es, tiene, quiere, puede, va, ve, ya no, todavía, también, etc.) in both the present and past tenses (sometimes confusing verb forms). 

  • You have taken the equivalent of 4 semesters of high school or college-level Spanish or at least 80 hours of class with me (or you have been doing a lot of at-home reading and listening in Spanish along with taking classes). 

  • You are able to understand long stories in Spanish in both the present and past tenses (with the help of drawings and gestures for lower-frequency words). 

  • You like to experiment with the Spanish that you know. You can retell a story that you have heard and hold a semi-fluid basic conversation about a variety of familiar topics.
