>>> This week corresponds to the first week of Compass Spanish A1 / 1 - The Course <<<

This course is composed of a wide range of materials: video,
vocabulary sheets, activities, and quizzes.

Compass Spanish A1 is aimed at students of the Spanish language with
little or no knowledge of the language. By means of short videos and
clear precise explanations, the student will be able to learn and
understand the basics. After every lesson there are vocabulary sheets
which will increase your vocabulary and also quizzes to help put the
knowledge into practice.

The course is based on linguistic research, 12 years teaching
experience, and a custom language acquisition framework built upon the
four core skills of reading, writing, listening, and speaking.

This course includes:

✔︎ The modules below.

✔︎ Interact with María and other class members in a Private 'Compass
Spanish' Facebook Group.

To get the maximum benefit from what this course has to offer, I suggest you join our Facebook group to interact with myself and other members, ask questions, and get regular input in Spanish. Once enrolled, you can request access here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/compass.spanish/
