A1 and A2 levels.
This is the introduction to the language, the “building blocks” part of the learning process where you will be able to communicate right away from day one. At NELA, we try to avoid the tedious and boring “ghost” of GRAMMAR and learn communication patterns instead.
We focus on SPEAKING and learning in a fun way through videos, games, songs and video calls with native speakers from Latin America. We give our students all the encouragement and ideas of various techniques that can be adopted along this process to help them better understand and acquire the language.
With more than 40 students already learning with us from all over central Vermont, we feel confident that we are on the right path to help our communities to learn a foreign language such as Spanish and be able to travel, do business or simply help others by knocking down the “wall” of communication. Join us today and start enjoying the gift of a second language.

Once you have mastered the basics of communication and you are ready to take your Spanish to the next level, this class is for you. Now you can start talking about the past and the special secret language within the language where you can talk about your hopes, wishes and desires -- THE SUBJUNCTIVE. After getting through intermediate Spanish, you can expect to be able to carry on a conversation about many different ideas.
You’ll work with higher-level vocabulary, refined sentences and gain a more authentic accent. With all these things in mind, it is important to be consistent, the intermediate level is always a challenge standing right in the middle of the process, feeling at times frustrated, but your willpower and determination will help you get through it. At NELA, we will give you all the tools you need to overcome these obstacles and reach the ultimate goal, COMMUNICATION. We are about to start our third Intermediate course and students just love it.
