Intensive Spanish I


This 15-week, fast-paced course is demanding and requires an autonomous student who consistently works each week. Though the coursework can be, for the most part, completed independently, it also has a synchronous component. 

Asynchronous Activties
  • Completing online activities in CONTRASEÑA: YOUR PASSPORT TO FOUNDATIONAL SPANISH, a digital immersive platform (required).

  • Coursework in CANVAS, a learning management system (required).

  • Assignments in FLIP, a secure platform where students interact via text, voice, or video (required).

Synchronous Activities
  • Weekly 50 min. meeting with the instructor on Mondays at 8 pm ET, 7 pm CT, 6 pm MT, and 5 pm PT via ZOOM (required).

  • Ten 30-minute online meetings with native speakers (sign-up required).

  • Two 10-minute appointments with a classmate and the instructor for oral assessments (required).

  • Weekly office hours (optional).


This course is perfect for you if you are a highly motivated teen with no previous or little experience with Spanish. It is also a good fit for someone who took high school Spanish and doesn't feel they retain much. Please get in touch with us if you are unsure if this is the right course for you.
