Lower Intermediate Practice & Conversation

Course Description: This engaging and highly participatory course is designed to help lower intermediate students who’ve learned to use the present and past tenses strengthen their skills by reviewing structures they’ve previously studied and using them in conversational practice. Main topics to be practiced include the preterite and imperfect tense, usage of direct and indirect object pronouns, and reflexive verbs, but topics may vary according to student learning needs and could include structures such as por vs. para, ser vs. estar, usage of the infinitive and gerund, etc.

Along with focused grammar review, students will practice their skills in contextual conversations and assignments with a wide range of Spanish immersion activities including readings, writing assignments, and guided discussion about diverse cultural and social topics in Latin America and around the world. The ultimate goal is to refine students’ skills in all areas: speaking, writing, and written/oral comprehension while simultaneously providing a venue for engaging cultural learning.

Prerequisite: Students who’ve completed at least Intermediate 2 or equivalent.

Duration: 10 weeks (1 class/week)
