Sometimes an acting job may require some Spanish. Sometimes the job is all in Spanish. Are you fully equipped?

This class will evaluate your Spanish level, proficiency, and reading skills, while providing you with a clear assessment of them. We will focus on clarifying your own individual goals: 

Do you want to speak well enough to improvise a chat en Español? Or, do you want to enter the Spanish voice-over market? Do you want to read audiobooks, or audition for commercials? These are all different goals that require specific directives and techniques. Come ready to read copy in Spanish; materials will be provided. Coaching in English will also be available if preferred. Texts in both languages will be provided.
