Warren Hardy Spanish Curriculum

Over the past 20 years we have developed a simple curriculum that teaches our students to learn to read and write Spanish as well as develop the skills to speak well. There are four levels of development. Each of the four levels has a Foundation Course where you learn the verb tenses; and a skill development component where you further conversational skills. WHS will take you from very beginning Spanish to a high conversational level in Spanish.



Level 1: Power Verbs
Basic Communication Skills
Level 2: Preterite & Object Pronouns
Level 3: Seven Indicative Tenses
Level 3 Conversation
Level 4: Present & Past Subjunctive
Nine Tense Integration

You work with a partner of matched skill level in timed exercises called games. You never answer or perform in front of the class, only to your partner. During the games, you take turns delivering and receiving cues from your partner. You use flashcards and WorkBooks as learning tools during the games. The Warren Hardy Method uses a “cross-training” modality that develops both reading/writing and speaking/understanding skills simultaneously.

  • Each level takes 2 1/2 weeks to complete.
  • Students study three days a week: MWF or TThS from 9 to 12 am.
  • There is a 15 minute coffee break at 10:30.
  • There is approximately one hour of homework for each classroom hour. You can work at home with audios that are recorded directly from the WorkBooks.

Classes are limited to ten students. You learn through activities both in the classroom and in the streets of San Miguel de Allende. Take the knowledge from the Foundation course and apply it to mastering life in San Miguel. Classroom activities include role plays with wonderful visual aids, power point presentations and movies.As you move through the Conversation courses you will learn to live in Mexico with confidence, tell stories, read and discuss Mexican history, legends, literature and politics.
