Spanish Level 1
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.
By the end of Fluenz Spanish 1, users can construct sentences
as complex as: "At the intersection to the left you're going to see the subway
station. You need to go to the right and buy a ticket at the entrance."
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.
By the end of Fluenz Spanish 2, users can construct sentences
as complex as "Can you wait for me at the store's entrance while I go in for
thirty minutes? Afterwards we can return to the hotel before going out to eat at the
restaurant on the plaza."
