Choose the level you think is most appropriate for you. We can place you in a different level once classes begin if need be.
Beginner 2 and Lower Intermediate: You already have experience with Spanish through a conversational beginner course. Add to your basic vocabulary in everyday situations and start forming compound and complex sentences. You will focus on speaking correctly and distinguishing between the past, present and future tenses.
Intermediate and Advanced: Focus on improving your conversational fluency by acquiring more complex grammatical structures and sentence formation. Possible grammar topics, based on student needs, may include the advanced level verb tenses (conditional, future anterior, and introduction to subjunctive,) or use of relative pronouns. Increase your language spontaneity through interesting conversational exercises such as debates, presentations, cultural discussions, and small group work using Spanish articles, poetry, websites and more.
