Whether you want to get started, get ahead, or work on your conversation skills, we've got you covered!
In January we dedicate TWO WEEKS to our Summer Intensives. You can do a WHOLE LEVEL, or take a FULL 15-HR CONVERSATION COURSE, or a 2-HR SPECIAL WORKSHOP.
Please note that we have made the decision to deliver all Summer Intensive classes ONLINE. To read a little more about how successful our online classes have been in 2020, please visit: Learning Spanish at Home
In the Summer Intensives you will be able to complete a FULL LEVEL in just 2 weeks!
You'll be doing a 3-hr class every second day - the spare days are for homework, but you'll still have your weekends free!
There are 5 different levels of Conversation Courses with ALL NEW MATERIAL:
Beginner Conversation (6hr) - reviews topics studied in Elementary 1 and El Cheapo (12-15 hours of study). Basic present tense verb patterns, pronunciation and the sounds of Spanish, gender (nouns and adjectives), your first irregular verbs.
Elementary Conversation (15-hr) – reviews topics studied up to Elementary 4 (~60 hrs of study). Present tense conjugations, the verb gustar, reflexive verbs, introduction to the first past tense: pretérito perfecto
Lower Intermediate Conversation (15-hr) – reinforces topics at Lower Intermediate levels (~135 hrs). Pretérito indefinido, pretérito imperfecto, presente continuo (estar + gerundio), conditional, ir a + infinitivo
Upper Intermediate Conversation (15-hr) – if you’ve completed approx 180 hours of study. Futuro simple, presente de subjunctivo, pretérito pluscuamperfecto, imperativo (+ heaps more!)
If you've already got a bit under your belt already, you've probably had questions about the use of SER or ESTAR, PRONUNCIATION and ACCENT, or POR y PARA. We've got you covered here too with our Special Workshops! These are our short-and-sweet 2hr Special Workshops designed to address the most common but easy-to-fix difficulties. Working through a small problem makes a BIG difference in your Spanish!
Pronunciation & Accent – pronunciation beyond basics, variants over Hispanic world.
Ser or Estar – that old problem of when to use Ser or Estar.
Por y Para - get to grips with when to use these two important prepositions
Or join our first-ever cooking class: Empanadas & Arepas, Live & At-Home! Cook and chat alongside Paula, learning all the secrets to make the perfect empanada and arepa at home! Doughs, cooking styles, salsas - learn it all!
