Habla usted español? After taking SpanishStarter's conversational Spanish course, you should be able to answer that question with, "yo hablo un poco español." The course teaches students Spanish basics, helping them build a foundation in the language. It does this through technical theory—including tenses—vocabulary, and common conversational phrases to help them order food in a restaurant or tell a doctor that their third bellybutton hurts.
Students learn through a combination of audio and video lessons led by an experienced bilingual speaker. On-screen transcripts help them retain new ideas, and a final exam ensures they've learned enough to have a basic conversation with a native speaker. Students don't need to have any prior experience with the language to be able to take this course.
