In this course I offer the student to learn the essencial grammar to be available to speak fluently in Spanish.
Basic grammar includes the most important regular verbs, nouns, adjective, singular, plural, numbers and most common phrases. Also conversation about diverses topics each class.
The approach offers the estudent to know the most important grammar, without being a grammar course, but without living apart stuff that is important to be available to use the language in an effective and proper way. I don't encourage my students to magic formulas like "learn without effort".
