Why the task is needed
I plan to spend several months traveling around Mexico. I would like to understand Spanish well enough not to require a personal guide or travel group. I want to get off the "beaten path" on occasion, and don't want to feel helpless.
I want to understand Spanish well enough to read signs, order from menus, and engage in casual conversations.
Desired result is a list of providers of Spanish courses. I also need the cost and description of these courses.
- Search the Internet for providers of Spanish courses.
- Copy the following information from these provider websites: contact information, cost, and course descriptions.
Purchasing the course
Desired result is to purchase a suitable course for learning to read and speak Spanish.
- Decide which provider appears to offer the best Spanish course based on cost and course description.
- Purchase the Spanish course from the selected provider.
Desired result is to be able to read and speak everyday Spanish.
- Study the course until I am able to read and speak everyday Spanish.
Desired result is to verify that I am able to read and speak everyday Spanish.
- Watch Spanish language programs and movies on television.
- Determine if I can understand these programs and movies and can speak the lines.
