Basic Spanish Classes

The way to organize the different levels of spanish classes may vary from school to school.

A basic spanish course will last for roughly 120 hours and gives you the ability to present yourself and use everyday phrases and expressions. You will understand sentences and frquently used expressions related to everyday life. You can go shopping make room reservations and order food from restaurants. You will be able to keep a conversation in an elementary level and exchange information with the person you are talking with.

Grammar in Basic Spanish Classes

The grammar that is being covered in a basic spanish class includes:

  • Numbers
  • Asking questions
  • Nouns and rules and excpetions for genders
  • Pronouns
  • Adjectives
  • The spanish verbs SER and ESTAR which are two different forms of the verb “to be”
  • HAY which means “there is”, and expressions related to this verb
  • The verb GUSTAR, which is being used instead of the english verb “to like”
  • Some of the seven simple tenses of the verbs like past, present and future
  • How to use reflexive verbs

A basic spanish class will usually demand harder work from students from the german language group like US, UK, Germany than studens from the Romance language group like france, as the spanish grammar is quite difficult compared to for instance english grammar.

Choosing a basic spanish class

When you are about to enter a basic spanish class, you will of course need to make sure that it suits your spanish level. More important but often forgotten is to determine that your basic spanish class suits your personality. Some students prefer spanish classes with lots of emphasis on theoretical training. Other students have a greater need for practical training with lots of repitition,  lots of excersices and practical examples.
