    After reading the City Paper on Jan 21, I saw the Spanish classes offered at the Common Space Center. I missed the Open House since I picked up the City Paper after the Open House date. I would be interested in receiving info regarding classes for children and adults.
    Thank you

    I am 50 years old. I recently finished 2 years of Spanish in college and took a course in Mexico. Although I am fairly good in grammar, I have a great deal of difficulty talking in meaningful sentences. I would love to find a conversational partner. I prefer a native speaker, so I can immitate, common phrase patterns. The person should have enough knowledge of grammar, to correct me.

    Thank you,

    PS: I like the idea of private lessons, but at this point a class would be acceptable.
