Thank you for visiting our homepage. We are a language school in Atlanta that offers Spanish and German classes using Graded Reader Method. Our class size is between 2 - 6 students. We are conveniently located across Lenox Mall.
Understanding your conversational partner
This is the first requirement of being able to speak. Adults speak at a rate of 100 words per minute. A thirty minute conversation can involve an exchange of 3000 words. You do need to have a strong vocabulary and a good understanding of wide variety of structures. Understanding is the basis of all conversations. Graded Reader Method will give you this understanding in less than six months. You will be able to read reasonably well at this stage.
Building your own sentences while speaking
As mentioned earlier, if 3000 words are exchanged and assuming that each sentence is six words long, then you will have to build 250 sentences and also understand 250 sentences. In other words, you need to have a very good command of the language, before you can speak it. When you read, you connect words and structures together to get the meaning of the sentences. This same understanding helps you build your own sentences while speaking.
Each class is six weeks long and meets for once a week for two and a half hours on evenings or weekends. The price of the Spanish class is $209.00. The price of German class is $249.00. Most of the class material is provided in the class and is included in the price.
