Club Español

Sharing the Enjoyment of the Spanish Language and Culture

 

 

Welcome

The Spanish Club, also known as Club Español, is a Chartered Social Club organized in 1980 by residents interested in sharing the enjoyment of the Spanish language and culture.  Many club members are learning Spanish for the first time.  Other members have become quite comfortable speaking Spanish. The Spanish classes and conversation groups offered by the club are a fun way to learn something new. . . and keep one’s brain active! 

In the past Club Español has had several wonderful fiestas each year. The Fall Fiesta was held in November, the Holiday Fiesta was held in December, the Valentine’s Fiesta was held in February, and our Fiesta de Primavera (Spring Fiesta) was held in April. Because of Covid-19, “in person” Spanish classes and gatherings for fiestas and club meetings are considered a health risk. Therefore, fiestas and General Meetings will not be held through fall 2020. Gathering together in fiestas, club meetings, and large group classes will be reviewed as Covid information emerges and revised plans will be announced.

 

Classes

 

Before Covid 19:

The Spanish Club offers classes at the beginning, intermediate and advanced levels starting in October of each year at the Beardsley Recreation Center. Some of the classes will focus on conversation, others on introducing all aspects of the language and some on more advanced verbs and grammar.  

For Fall 2020:

The Spanish Club will offer some classes during fall 2020. However, the classes will be offered in a different format because of Covid 19. The club will offer Spanish language learning classes through Zoom. For more information about class offerings, click on the Fall 2020 Information About Spanish Classes button. (Clicking on  Learn Spanish in the menu bar at the top of this page will also get you to our fall class information.).

Sometimes students are not sure which classes or conversation groups to take, so check out the Fall  2020 Class Placement Guide on the Learn Spanish page to determine which classes are recommended for you!   Classes and conversation groups are free to club members.
