Enhancing your communicative skills
The Intermediate classes are focused on communicative skills such as:
- giving instructions and persuading
- expressing fears, regrets and desires
- expressing opinions, feelings and sentiments about current or past situations
For all of these communicative skills, Spanish uses a grammatical structure called the Subjunctive Mood. The Subjunctive Mood is not very difficult to learn, but it requires practice... and patience.
The sequence of these Intermediate Classes is flexible, but there are some guidelines that I would recommend for someone who has never taken Intermediate Classes (or has never heard about the Subjunctive) before.
- Take Intermediate (A), (B) and (C) in any order.
- Take at least two of those classes before taking (D) and (E).
These classes are also focused on expanding your vocabulary and your reading and speaking skills. We read some brief articles about the culture, the politics and the history of Spain and Latin America... and we watch (at home) at least one movie per term that we later discuss in class.
Every person is different. If this is your first time at Spanish Class Minnesota, I strongly encourage you to call me at 651.917.3445 to talk about your particular case.
I look forward to hearing from you.
