Accelerated 5-Day Spanish Course (Part 1)
CALA courses are based on brain research on how to help you acquire a language in a natural, fun, and effective way! Classes are open to the public (ages 13 and up).
Experience the joy and ease of learning a language with brain research-based methods like TPR (Total Physical Response) and TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling). Learners will build their listening, speaking, reading, and writing in an engaging and fun classroom setting through games and storytelling. Focus on the 300 most frequently used words in the language will enable students to start expressing themselves in Spanish.
This course has been engineered to provide rapid gains in Spanish. First, the content is focused: Rather than bombarding participants with a wide array of random vocabulary, we take a “narrow and deep” approach and focus on the most frequently used words that we encounter in day-to-day life. Second, rather than using traditional methods of drills and memorization, we incorporate extensive research to create a classroom where the brain learns best. You will acquire the language in an atmosphere of activity and laughter unlike any you have ever experienced. This language-learning platform results in accelerated acquisition. After taking Spanish Parts 1 & 2 at the CALA Language Institute, most students taking the MTSU foreign language placement test place out of 1-4 semesters of university-level Spanish!
