You have covered a lot of grammar over the years, recently or a long time ago, perhaps you’ve reached the infamous “Intermediate plateau” and you feel stuck? This class might be for you.
In this level, you are able to understand the main ideas of a text, a podcast or a video clip, to interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers possible without strain for either party, and to explain a viewpoint. You are conversational but always welcome guidance to brush up and better your knowledge of grammar and continue to increase your vocabulary.
We will use different mediums to engage everyone’s conversational skills. The weekly meetings will touch upon various aspects of everyday life and cultures of Spanish-speaking countries. To prepare for class discussions, your homework will consist of a variety of tasks: reading short articles, listening to podcasts, viewing video clips or movie scenes, reading a short story, observing a painting, etc. to help you learn or review important language structures in a fun way and expand your vocabulary.
You will use the Spanish language and Spanish only!
