I've been teaching foreign languages for a long time, and speaking them even longer! For the last several years, I've primarily taught home schoolers in the context of a college prep weekly tutorial. That's right -- we have classes just one day a week -- and STILL I've seen some amazing results as many of my students come out not only scoring really high on college entrance exams, but also placing out of multiple college semesters! But perhaps even more importantly, many of them come out actually conversing in the language.
What a concept!
Imagine actually being able to converse with a native Spanish speaker! Whether you are a middle school, high school, or university student, or an adult thinking it's about time you got at least a basic amount of Spanish under your belt, it's a very worthy goal to be able to actually form sentences and express yourself -- even on a basic level!
That's EXACTLY why I opened World to the Wise Academy. Beginning with our inaugural course, How to Learn a Foreign Language: 7 Hacks for Making the Daunting Doable, our goal is to make learning a foreign language an appealing and rewarding process. The Introduction to Spanish course is the next course offering soon to be launched.
This is not a full length, intensive course. As the name suggests, it is a quick but thorough foretaste of the Spanish language, with practical vocabulary and subject matter that applies to everyday life. You can immediately put into practice what you're learning, which is of course key to retaining what you've learned.
If you are in middle school or junior high, this course is the perfect way to prepare you for the rigors of high school Spanish. (We'll be offering High School Spanish 1 and 2 in the not-too-distant future.)
If you're an adult who knows the value of being a life-long learner, this mini-course will get you well on your way to conversing in the second most widely spoken language in the world -- over 400 million speakers!
SPECIAL PACKAGE FOR our FIRST 50 BUYERS!
If you are one of the first 50 people to buy the Introduction to Spanish course, as a SPECIAL BUNDLE you'll also receive our introductory course, How to Learn a Foreign Language: 7 Hacks for Making the Daunting Doable for just $29 more (normally $49 value). This is the course we recommend for anyone who is just beginning their foreign language adventure -- OR anyone who would like to go back and pick up some tools that will help accelerate their language learning process.
Q: What age group is this course for?
A: It's really for any age group, but is especially recommended for students preparing to tackle high school or college Spanish for credit. Those courses can be pretty challenging, and this will give you a serious leg up! But adults of any age will also learn a lot!
Q: What if I'm not happy with the course?
A: We hope that's not the case! But not to worry, we offer a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you're not satisfied, we'll send you a full refund -- no questions asked.
Q: So what happens when I've finished the Intro course?
A: Stay tuned! We'll be rolling out a full-on, complete Spanish 101 course -- equivalent to two semesters of accelerated high school Spanish, eventually followed by Spanish 201. In the meantime, we'll leave you with some valuable resources to continue your Spanish learning journey. Not to mention a handful of specialized mini-courses we have planned, such as Spanish for short-term missions and Spanish for health care workers.
