In this level you will increase your command of conversational Spanish and fine tune your writing skills as well.
– you have mastered the material presented in our Low Intermediate classes either because you took the class several times or equivalent classes
– you have seen all tenses of the indicative mood, the conditional and imperative moods, and most probably have touched upon the subjunctive mood
– you are able to understand the main ideas of rather complex texts on both concrete and abstract topics
– you are able to interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party
This conversation class, taught entirely in Spanish, is meant for students with a strong command of spoken Spanish. Students will be encouraged to present their ideas and opinions on the materials presented and while the grammatical focus will be on the conditional and subjunctive moods, other grammatical topics will be reviewed “on the go” whenever needed.
