Course Description -- Spanish Level 2 Class
The Spanish Level 2 class is for students who have previously taken our Conversational Intro class or who have had recently the equivalent of 25-30 hours of Spanish instruction taken in a larger group setting. Students who have taken more than 30 hours in the past, yet are uncertain if this is the right class for them, can call us for an assessment of their Spanish language abilities.
This Spanish class will start with a basic review of conjugations of regular and some irregular verbs in the present.
In this lower intermediate class emphasis is placed on improving your basic speaking abilities and developing fluency. You will learn more and more irregular verbs and use them correctly in lower intermediate conversations. You will learn how to describe yourself and others, express daily routines, talk about who and what you know, express habitual and future actions, indicating the location of a person or a thing and talk about the past. Small texts about places of geographical interest, social issues, fashion are used to further your understanding of Spanish speaking people and cultures.
Grammar taught covers some irregular verbs, descriptive adjectives, the position of adjectives, the present indicative and present progressive, the personal a, reflexive verbs, stem changing verbs, differences between para, por, saber, conocer, demonstrative adjectives, pronouns and the preterit tense.
Our small class size - on average 6 students per class - will make the difference when learning Spanish.
You only can learn Spanish if you actually try to speak it!
With us you will have the opportunity to speak and practice at least 100% more as if you were sitting in a classroom with 12-15 students.
Good language instruction depends on quality instructors and quality speaking time.
