This conversation class is designed for intermediate through advanced students who want to better their Spanish through conversation practice.
The main couse objective is to help students improve their vocabulary, pronunciation, and use of specific grammatical structures while expanding their knowledge of hispanic cultures. Participants are asked to read a short article, listen to a brief podcast and/or think about a particular topic to prepare for the day’s discussion.
The least advanced speakers have to be willing to not always understand all the nuances of what is being said and to stick to Spanish as they ask for clarifications or explanations, and the more advanced speakers have to embrace the challenge of finding alternate ways of conveying their point to help clarify or explain what they previously said. Everyone will benefit from these conversation practice sessions.
While little preparation will be required, please keep in mind that the success of these sessions depends on everyone being able to engage at his or her level and preparation is often key.
This class can be taken in combination with another more traditionally structured class or on its own.
If you know that this is the right level/class for you, please sign up!
If you need assistance to determine if this class is right for you, we would be happy to help.
