First class: Remember to pay your $11 through PayPal after class or before, in some cases I may ask new students to pay in advance. This will depend on how many people RSVP and if at least one student has attended or participated in any event. This is a process of confirmation since new students may not be too familiar with Philadelphia Spanish Meetup. Please read thoroughly so you may have a better idea of how this meetup works. Also for this meetup we work with a book that you will need to purchase before RSVPing for the class, the instructions are at the bottom. Once the first steps are done remember to have a pen or pencil and a dictionary (If you do not have one, you can use the internet to replace it). Remember that I will only speak in Spanish. This will be a simple class and everything is included in the lessons, so do not be afraid or shy if you do not understand or speak Spanish. This course is designed for level two students. The reason I will only speak in Spanish is that you get used to think in Spanish and relate the meaning of the words through pictures that are included in the lessons. Try to ask questions related to the lessons. Please be patient that more advanced information will be included later on.
Advantages of the classes online:
1. First you will not need to worry about parking tickets, public transportation, rush hours and you will be able to stay in the comfort of your home.
2. Also you will be saving more money, since you do not need to move out of your home.
3. And for the ones who like to protect the environment, it is a solution to lower emissions that contribute towards over-heating the earth.
What do you need?

If there are problems with the internet connection with some of the students I may ask the student or students to postpone the class until the problem is solved. For this I will get in contact with the student/s another day and try to solve the problem with each student at different time (if they are more than one). For the ones that have a good connection the class will continue as normal and I will take care of providing the information necessary for the students left behind in order for them to level up with the other students.
Please be advice that if for any special reason I ask someone to pay in advance, he/she must pay at least three hours before the event. This process will confirm the RSVP in these special occasions. Also be aware that if this process fails the RSVP will not be valid and it will be counted as a cancelation of the RSVP.
For the ones that pay in advanced through PayPal or for the ones that I may ask to pay in advanced under special occasions. I recommend them to check the return policy.
Any question, you may contact me directly by texting or calling at[masked] 6149. You may also contact me through this website or at my email: [masked]
Please be advice that if I ask any of the students to pay in advanced under special circumstances. He/she must cancel the RSVP at least two hours before the event; if this process is not complete I will return four dollars back and the other seven dollars will include my time and the money that PayPal will charge me to return the money back. If you cancel in a satisfactory manner before the event, at least two hour before, I will return the complete amount (eleven dollars) or you may use it as payment for next class.
