TIME FOR CONVERSATION!

Conversation courses are designed to take all the little things you've learnt in class or elsewhere in the Spanish-speaking world and string them together into a flowing, coherent, confident ... CONVERSATION!

This time we're offering the choice between a short (4.5-hr) structured course or a longer (7.5-hr) course that has both structure and time for open conversation practice.

The 4.5-hr course (3 x 1.5-hr classes) will be dedicated to revising and practicing - while the 7.5-hr (5 x 1.5-hr classes) will have an additional two sessions focused on open conversation, using the skills you've just practiced in the first three classes!

 

Pick from the following levels:

Elementary 1 Conversation Elementary 2 Conversation Elememtary 3-4 Conversation

Lower Intermediate Conversation 

Upper Intermediate Conversation 
Elementary 1 students (around 15 hours of study) Elementary 2 students (around 30 hours of study)

Elementary 3 & 4 students

Suitable to Lower Intermediate 1

Lower Intermediate 2 - 5 students.

Or those in slightly higher levels who want to go back and revise

Students Upper Intermediate and above

If you need a hand working out where you fit in, just get in touch.

Ser or Estar Workshop (2 hours)

Every Spanish student's first major brain-twister, SER and ESTAR can seem like a complex bundle of verb-y confusion. This workshop is designed to demystify these two verbs. You get to pull them apart, look at them inside-out and clarify when to use them. Imagine how great it would be if SER and ESTAR made perfect sense - this workshop will put you on the right track.

This is what you workshop:

  • the present tense forms of the verb SER and ESTAR
  • the uses of SER
  • the uses of ESTAR
  • contrast SER / ESTAR
  • adjectives that change meaning when using SER or ESTAR

Por & Para Workshop (2 hours)

Ahh the legendary PARA y PARA conundrum. Legendary because alongside the infamous 'ser or estar' dilemma, this generates the most confusion amongst learners of Spanish. Well, cast that confusion aside with this 2hr workshop. Get clear about the particular uses of each and glean some insight into how they differ so you'll never mix them up again.

This is what you workshop ...

  • The uses of POR
  • The uses of PARA
  • Semantic contrast of POR / PARA
  • Idiomatic expressions / set phrases that use each
  • Exceptions and oddities!
