She is now offering three levels of Spanish classes in Boquete, Basic Level, Intermediate and High Intermediate. These are professional instructions with an easy, clear curriculum and the correct sequencing of material. Location of the class is in Boquete The Basic Class is called Crash Course Spanish ****Class meets Mondays and Fridays 9:00 a.m. -11:15 It will get you speaking fast! It shows how the language is organized, and teaches the tricks of the language, the basics: pronunciation, some important cultural notes, phrases, vocabulary, speaking; fluid short conversations, how to ask and answer questions. You will practice and share tips, create full sentences, and learn how to speak without conjugating verbs. Workbook is included. The Crash Course Intermediate Class **Class meets Mondays and Fridays 1:00 p.m. -3:15 p.m. You will USE your acquired Spanish language! You will speak in class, get tips for learning to listen and respond in "rapid fire" exchanges, pronounce the difficult, role play, learn word order, expand your vocabulary and engage in specialized classes to gain better listening skills. You will speak every day, learn a higher use of some verbs without conjugating, create interesting sentences, listen to songs, conduct interviews and give short speeches. Learn by doing. Each student will translate for someone. It's time to do better at understanding what Spanish speakers are saying BECAUSE… the class also begins to "Train your ear” as well as to “Practice Speaking”, all of this as you learn more and more Spanish fast; you build the confidence you need to converse with others. Workbook is included. Pre-requisite for the **Intermediate Class : Basic Spanish, no exceptions. **Intermediate Class To enter this class the following will describe your level of speech: You respond to simple, direct questions or requests for information, can ask a few questions concerning needs and wants, and are able to express personal meaning by relying heavily on learned or re-combined phrases, repeating or rephrasing what you hear around you. You know short and sometimes incomplete sentences in the present tense. At times you know you state things incorrectly, but gain confidence because the Spanish speaker “got” what you were trying to say. You may be hesitant or inaccurate, whereby frequent misunderstandings arise. When called upon to handle a variety of topics and perform serious functions you operate at about a 40% to 50% success range, and can sometimes respond in intelligible sentences, but cannot sustain full sentence exchanges. You know the meanings/translations (not the conjugations) of at least 75 verbs.

    4 DAY SPANISH PRONUNCIATION CLASS with RENNY <> Details and cost at the end. <> ...and it starts SOON! Hi everybody! <> Here’s something to think about: No matter how well you string words together, and no matter how much you understand, as an English speaker, you developed hearing and speaking patterns that clash with the Spanish sound system. Fortunately, these tendencies are predictable and fixable once you become aware of them. By understanding the things you’re inclined to do wrong, you can begin to make sense of these differences. This is more than a class about pronunciation rules for the language. There’s rhythmic flow, lilts and cadences that if you don’t master, your Spanish pronunciation will always be lacking, always have that strong “gringo” sound, and unfortunately, what you say is sometimes unintelligible to Spanish speakers. By now everyone knows that in Spanish the vowels are pronounced the same in almost every case, but when two or more vowels appear together, getting that mouthful of twists and turns of the tongue to come out sounding correct is both funny and frustrating. The vowels account for only 5 letters, but the vowel patterns account for 80% of everything you will say in Spanish. Hearing these patterns and incorporating them into your speech gets you beyond that “wall” you’ve hit. With a bit of awareness and practice everyone can improve the control over the tongue’s movement. Some of your pronunciation errors may seem like minor details, but it is important because certain fast sound combinations make your speech impossible to understand. If you have been here any time at all, you realize the need to know more of the pronunciation nuances, accents, vowel combinations, silent letters, etc. as you get to speaking at faster and faster speeds. Sometimes it’s just getting those vowel sounds out of your mouth in the correct order, right? Example: la Corregiduría, igualdad que conquistaremos, Ampliación de los auditados…. say those 3 times fast! Join this fun and very short class with Renny. (References available upon request.) Mon & Tues, Nov 5 and 6 and Thurs & Fri Nov 8 and 9 All classes are from 9 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. That’s right! 4 days 2-1/2 hrs a day. The classes will be given IN BOQUETE. (TBA) COST: $90 rennykranich@gmail.com if interested.

    Great amount of books in English, Spanish of diverse types, At very low prices. Thank you for supporting the children's programs at Biblioteca de Boquete.
  6. I am still learning Spanish, and on Facebook I receive notices that sometimes I'm not capable of translating, and Facebook's translations do more harm than good! http://www.freetranslation.com/
  7. Necesitamos alertar a todos los residentes de Alto Boquete sobre la actividad confirmada de una banda de robo que opera en este sector. Según los informes, han sido responsables de más de 6 robos de viviendas de propiedad panameños en la zona. La policía está investigando, pero necesita su ayuda. Si ve algo fuera de lo común, por favor llame inmediatamente a la Policía Nacional al 104 o 720-2145. Su información será confidencial. Se sospecha que la pandilla está usando una camioneta con equipo de jardinería en el vagón. Creemos que están utilizando esto como una fachada para identificar las casas que pueden ser robadas mientras los dueños no están. Si usted ve este pick up sospechoso, o se acercan a ofrecerle servicios de jardinería, o cualquier otra cosa sospechosa, tome una foto del pick up y la placa. Y llame al 104 o 720-2145 En particular, usted necesita obtener cédulas de cualquier trabajador en su propiedad. Y tenga precaución de personas tatuadas que pueden pertenecer a pandillas. Esto es muy importante. ¡Gracias de antemano por tu ayuda! Los ciudadanos alertas han impedido muchos casos como estos en el pasado.
  8. Some people quit learning Spanish language before starting. I say that some people loose the game without playing it. I got a good friend that moved to NYC not knowing english language. The only thing he could say was: My name is Hector. The book is on the table. The book is blue and I love the book. Nothing more. Period. When in NYC he was forced to speak english. He was living in a place with no spanish speaking people around. So for him it was learn english or you will be isolated and lonely. He started speaking english like babies do. Little by little he learned some verbs, he increased his vocabulary, made himself understood and could communicate with people. I dont believe in the statement some people use like: You can teach tricks to an old dog. For me it is not a lack of ability or capability to learn spanish. For me is....some kind of lazyness. People in Panama will appreciate very much if you try to communicate with them in spanish. For us it doesnt matter if you dont use the right gender in nouns, if you dont use the right tense in verbs, if you dont use the same word or sentence order. YOU ARE TRYING and that is really appreciated. It means for us that YOU REALLY CARE about us. My opinion is constant exposition to the spanish language and PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE will make you master the language or at least be able to communicate in Spanish language. I dont believe in those boring and expensive Spanish courses that makes you mess with grammar, orthography and all those boring subjects. I used to hate grammar, orthography classes in my own language so I can imagine how hard and boring will be studying them in another language. The best way to learn another language is to be force to use it and speak it. So dont be shy. TRY. PRACTICE. You will see later the world in Panama very different. Here is an article I received today regarding this subject I found interesting for sharing with you. https://www.babbel.com/en/magazine/tips-learn-spanish?bsc=hp494_spanishtips&btp=default
