San Miguel de Allende, GTO, Mexico (PRWEB) June 12, 2008 – The University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College (UTB/TSC) will begin teaching the Warren Hardy Spanish Level 1 course in Brownsville, Texas on June 14, 2008. In response to the needs of the Brownsville community, where the ability to speak Spanish is an essential skill, UTB/TSC selected the Warren Hardy learning system for its adult education classrooms based on its effectiveness with adult learners and emphasis on Mexican Spanish.
“Our community has been requesting a Spanish course to help them communicate with employees, customers, friends and neighbors. We learned about Warren Hardy Spanish four years ago and have traveled to San Miguel de Allende several times to observe classes,” says Dr. Tony Zavaleta, Vice President for External Affairs. “We were very impressed with Warren Hardy’s method and how quickly and confidently students begin functioning in Spanish. This year we hired and sent a dedicated teacher to San Miguel for Warren Hardy Spanish teacher certification. We are happy to be offering our first classes and already community feedback has been extremely positive.”
The Warren Hardy Spanish learning system was developed and perfected over a thirty-year period by founder and creator Warren Hardy. His school in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico has used this system to successfully teach thousands of students since 1990. This innovative learning system effectively and easily helps adults learn Spanish by integrating workbooks, flash cards, pronunciation practice, and games while working with a partner. Teacher training and certification is available for those interested in the Warren Hardy Spanish Method.
Warren Hardy explains, “We are very excited about the opportunity to be part of the UTB/TSC Language Institute. This relationship with The University of Texas at Brownsville andTexas Southmost College represents our first partnership with a Higher Education learning institution. In the past our students had to travel to our school in Mexico. Now through our teacher certification program we are able to train teachers and take Warren Hardy Spanish into local communities like Brownsville, which is a sister city to San Miguel de Allende. What a fortuitous way to start. This furthers our mission of uniting people through language learning and cultural understanding.”
