Travel Spanish


Travel Spanish


If you will be taking a trip to a Spanish speaking country then you should know at least some Spanish for your trip. This class will prepare you for the necessary Spanish you need to get by in your travels in a short period of time. Through scenario examples, you will learn essential travel phrases, and the basic vocabulary you need for your trip: greetings, directions, transport, accommodation and eating. It’s also good to know some Spanish for safety reasons. For example, some areas of Latin American countries are not suitable for tourists, so when a local tells you “No vayas en esa dirección, ¡es peligroso!” you can understand what is being said to you (“Don’t go in that direction; it’s dangerous”) and make an informed decision.

This Travel Spanish course focuses less on the rules of grammar and more on the basics of what you need to know to make your vacation a memorable one and feel more confident in your next trip to a Spanish speaking country.



All assignments must be completed in order to receive your course completion certificate. You will be able to download your course completion certificate from a shared drive, a few days after the class concludes. For this class, you CANNOT receive the course completion certificate earlier. You will receive it after the class concludes.



Attendance during the scheduled Zoom sessions is mandatory and we will be taking attendance! If you do not attend these, you will not receive a course completion certificate. Other than the Zoom sessions, you will be free to work whenever you want, at your own pace. You will have 4 weeks to complete all course requirements.



This class will consist of readings, videos and assignments and posted on Google Classroom and a few scheduled Zoom sessions (Zoom is a video conference app). Both of these platforms are free and easy to use. You will be invited to join Google Classroom about a week before class starts. Check your junk mailbox, as invitations to join Google Classroom sometimes end up there. Please make sure you register for the course with a valid email address, since this is where you will receive an invitation notification to join Google Classroom. Your email has to be Google Classroom compatible, so it’s best if you use gmail, hotmail or yahoo. If you do not receive a notification, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to contact us.

There is NO pre-assignment for the online class. You might however be asked by your instructor, a few days in advance, to prepare a little bit for the first zoom meeting. The course syllabus, all readings and assignments will be posted on Google Classroom before the first zoom meeting.

You will attend the Zoom sessions by going to and clicking “Join Meeting.” You will then enter a meeting ID number that will be provided to you. You can join via a computer, iPad or phone! We would prefer to see you, but if you do not have a camera on your computer, that’s ok. You can join via audio only. There is also an option to call in from your phone, in case your computer audio has any trouble connecting.

Due to the nature of this course, this class is slightly different than our other classes and will have mandatory zoom sessions every weekend for 4 weeks. Please see the sessions below.
