Level 1 to 3 Defined
This is the introductory level at El Taller. Students with little to no conversational ability are encouraged to start at this level. You will be introduced to the present, past and future tenses.
This level is for students who feel comfortable actively participating using the present, past, and future tenses in both the simple and compound tenses.
This level is for students who feel comfortable actively participating in almost complete Spanish and are working towards expanding their vocabulary and perfecting their pronunciation and conversational skills.
In addition, we also offer:
CASA ABIERTA (Open House): At El Taller, we understand that our unique way of teaching the language is a little unconventional and not for everyone. To learn if the classes are fit for you, come in and audit a class before enrolling in the next session. So stop by to visit our classrooms, meet the teachers, and experience what "Spanish of the Americas™" at El Taller is all about.
- NEW CLASS: Literamúsicatura: This new class, taught by our director, Bernardo, is designed for advanced students and native speakers. Learn about the unknown writers of Latin America; experience the well-known ones in a new way; sing literature, write sound, and translate collectively. Meet guest authors as they come to visit the class. ¡Oiga! ¡Lea! ¡Traduzca! ¡Escriba! ¡Cante!

Classes in El Barrio

I took a beginning Spanish class at El Taller about a year ago. I learned more from that class than I ever have from any other Spanish class I've taken. I plan on taking the intermediate
class soon and also plan to start attending the meet-ups to practice my Spanish. They are a great addition to the cultural and language centers in NYC.
