Translate & Interpret (INTERMEDIO ALTO/AVANZADO) 12 weeks with Pedro García

Wednesday evenings from 4:30-5:30pm with Pedro

Class begins September 6th and goes for 12 weeks until November 22nd meeting at the Whole Foods in Green Hills in Nashville on Hillsboro Pike. During the 12 weeks, we’ll practice interpretation (spoken words English/Spanish) and translation (written words English/Spanish) in every class. Interpretations from English to Spanish will be more usual than Spanish to English; however, both will be covered. Interpretation helps you become faster at gathering the information in your brain that would convey the message that you are hearing in a different language. This exercise goes beyond mere conversation, and enhances conversation skills tremendously. As to translations, there will be a weekly short text in English to be translated at home and we will go over it in class; we will focus on parameters like grammar, punctuation and verbatim style of translation, focusing on each word to make sense of it out of the context in which we find it. This class is, along with conjúgate, one of the best opportunities for you to go the extra mile and set the goals on your Spanish journey even higher $17 per class x 12 weeks (1 spot open for late starter).

This lesson is aimed at beginner and intermediate levels and  will be covering all of the verb tenses of the Spanish language in 12 lessons. It could seem daunting at first, but Pedro knows how to introduce the topic in a fun and flexible way for students to enjoy the learning process. If you are up for a fun challenge, this is your class. No more mysteries about verbs. ¡CONJÚGATE!
