504     CONVERSATIONAL SPANISH - The Friday Edition:  Señora Manuela Vasey debuts as our newest Spanish teacher for Fridays.  She will assess your level of proficiency and begin teaching by having you talking, reading, and writing Latin-American Spanish.  Spanish has become the second language of many Americans especially here in Florida; some knowledge is almost mandatory.  You have an opportunity to learn this beautiful language from a native of Ecuador.  Manuela suggests purchasing Spanish Made Simple. Copies will be made available in class at a discounted rate.
