This class is a continuation of our faux-beginning classes or similar experience. This class is designed for advanced beginners.
Whether you have been studying with us for a little while or studied the language in college or high school a long time ago and at some point in your past could carry on a conversation about every day activities with a reasonable level of ease, this class might be for you.
The general objectives of the course are to boost your oral communication skills while giving you the opportunity to review important grammar and vocabulary and expand on your prior knowledge.
– You know the present tense of the indicative moods of most regular and irregular verbs
– You also know the main past tenses (passato prossimo and imperfetto)
– You are able to understand the main ideas of rather complex texts
– You are able to interact with native speakers using basic and at times more complex sentence structures
In this class, you will learn the imperative mood, the future tenses of the indicative mood, demonstrative pronouns, and how to use the most common adverbs. You will also learn how prepositions connect words in sentences and how to use them.
