The Spanish for Busy People program is designed to be an accelerated introductory course to the most basic grammar and vocabulary found in your daily life. Students who complete this program will not gain complete fluency or comprehension but rather the skills to get through a real life situation successfully. Spanish for Busy People gives students the basic understanding of the Spanish language and the resources to increase fluency outside the classroom.
