Q & A

Which Level Spanish Class Should I Take?

Here’s what the courses are like:

 

Beginning Spanish is for true beginners.  It teaches the 200 highest frequency words in Spanish.  It starts with stand up / sit down / walk / the boy walks to the door.  This is the right level for true beginners or anyone who has limited Spanish that they can’t yet put into any kind of sentences.  By the end of this 15-20 hour course, they will be able to read a book in Spanish and have some limited ability to tell simple stories and ask and answer simple questions.

 

Intermediate Spanish focuses on communication in the past tense to be able to tell what just happened and communicate in the present and past tenses.  Some people take this class even thought they are just BARELY past beginning — which is fine.  They will understand a lot but communicate less.  Some people take it because they are not ready for Advanced.  The majority of our students take Intermediate multiple times.  The content is always different.  Students read one text in class together and another out of class that is appropriate to their level.  This class accepts the broadest levels.  It is our multi-level class.

 

Advanced Spanish is designed for students who are beyond Intermediate and have a pretty solid grasp of communication in the past and present all the way up to non-native Spanish teachers of lower level Spanish classes. We explore the trickier parts of the language like imperfect subjunctive and conditional and future grammatically, but also explore more interesting topics because we can discuss more topics freely and communicate more naturally.  We focus on vocabulary expansion.  There is no class reader, but all participants read at their own level, selecting from a variety of available readers in the library.  At this level there is still lots of input, but students are more conversational.  The outside of class requirements are higher and suggestions for prep work are sent by email at the end of May (watching Netflix series in Spanish with subtitles in Spanish, reading, etc.)

 

HOWEVER — none of this matters that much because the 3 classes are intentionally simultaneous.  Those who are not sure should sign up for the class above their level and stay for the first hour.  If after an hour the class seems too difficult, they can pop down and only have missed the first hour of an easier class.  Moving up is more difficult than moving down.  If you think you think you’re between Beginning and Intermediate, sign up for Intermediate.  If you think you’re between Intermediate and Advanced, sign up for Advanced.  You’re looking for the level that feels comfortable and comprehensible, so that you understand everything easily.  If you want more of a challenge, you can always increase your reading.
