Fluenz

Spanish


img407.gif (8405 bytes)Fluenz Spanish is an interactive program based on a virtual one-on-one tutoring.

The program has been developed by a group of Harvard and Cornell graduates who are passionate language learners and who felt there had to be a better way to learn a language.  The result of their work is ideal for those who seek common sense explanations, sophisticated workouts that lead to real learning, and who thrive on a great teacher to keep them focused and engaged.

The Fluenz system follows three clear principles:  1) We learn best when we have a teacher. It's often difficult to motivate yourself to learn on your own. By bringing a tutor to the computer,  all concepts are explained in a sensible way and you don't have to tackle Spanish all by yourself.  2) If you are an English speaker, it's easier and faster to learn Spanish by starting out in English. With Fluenz, every new word and grammar structure is explained in English, from a perspective that will make the most sense to English speakers who are learning Spanish.  3) It's best to learn the most relevant words in Spanish right away. Fluenz Spanish focuses on the vocabulary needed to learn the language in order to use it in practical, real-world travel and business situations.

The first level of Fluenz Spanish is a comprehensive introduction to the language.  Fluenz Spanish is aimed at bringing learners to a level of fluency that will allow them to successfully interact in the most common, real-world situations they will face abroad, while at the same time laying the strongest possible foundation for future study.

In thirty sessions, or the equivalent of two sessions a week during an academic semester, the program covers key verbs, sentence formulations in present and future tenses, pronoun use, the ability to ask different kinds of questions and give answers, the ability to correctly form masculine and feminine constructions, how to issue important commands, how to express time, location, and give directions, and critical vocabulary for surviving in the Spanish-speaking world.

Fluenz Spanish Level 2

The second level of Fluenz Spanish builds upon the foundations established in the previous level, greatly expanding the learner's range and complexity of expression in such areas as key verbs, sentence formulations in past, present, and future tenses, the ability to ask different kinds of questions and construct answers, how to issue important commands, correctly use prepositions, express time, location, and give directions, and necessary vocabulary for surviving in the Spanish-speaking world. The second level also covers the use of important articles and object pronouns, reflexive verbs, and comparatives and superlatives.

For English speakers, the complexity of Spanish verb conjugations, prepositions, object pronouns, and article usage tend to prove especially difficult. Spanish 2 therefore spends considerable time on these areas. Even learners who are familiar with the basic vocabulary related to restaurants, shopping, transportation, and general location issues will find the work in these specific grammatical areas to be extremely helpful in the construction of Spanish sentences.
