Four levels of Conversational Spanish classes, offered by the Goshen Adult Literacy Program, will begin in January.

Levels one and two will be held on Tuesday evenings January 14 ­ March 25 at Goshen High School. Levels 3 and 4 will be held on Monday evenings January 20 ­ March 31 at Goshen Public Library. The cost for 20 hours of instruction is $80.

The focus in all classes is on speaking and understanding spoken Spanish. Level one is for the very beginner. It covers pronunciation and basic words and phrases and 3 present tense verbs. Level 2 includes more practice with everyday conversation, increasing knowledge of present tense verbs. Levels 3 and 4 begin instruction in past and future tenses and more complex sentence structures. Many students choose to repeat a level to gain a solid basis for going on to the next level. For further practice, students have the opportunity to be partnered with an Hispanic adult student who is studying English.
