Thank you for visiting our homepage. We are a well established 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.
What you will learn in the basic Spanish class
In our six weeks basic Spanish class you will acquire a vocabulary of more than 400 words. You need a vocabulary of around 2000 words, in order to become a fluent speaker. Our basic Spanish course will also give you a very good understanding of the structure of the language. When you speak, you have to build your own sentences. For this you need to acquire a very good command of the structure of the language. After attending our six weeks basic Spanish, you will see a marked improvement in your ability to retain Spanish words and structures. Speaking is all about recalling which depends on retention. Our set of next three intermediate courses will give you a vocabulary of more than 2000 words and a very good command of the grammar. You will learn how to build your own sentences.
Speaking practice versus reading
Speaking practice reinforces what you already know. If you do not know the language well enough, it is quite obvious that you can not practice speaking it in a meaningful way. Reading is the best way of getting to know the language, increasing your vocabulary and developing a good understanding of the language. Graded Reader Method is a very powerful tool for developing this understanding. You can not go wrong with understanding a language that you hope to speak. Reading prepares your mind for speaking. Those who read a lot are more eloquent for a reason. Graded Reader Method teaches beginners how to read. You will see progress right from the first class.
