Advanced Conversation

41 reviews

Advanced Conversation is an immersion course for the advanced student who is confident in his/her Spanish grammar knowledge and aims to improve oral and aural skills in the language through reading, debating, creating, and analyzing.

The course features individual presentations, discussions, and metalinguistic conversations in a ten-week setting that will dramatically improve your speaking and comprehension abilities.

Please note that, because we all learn at a different pace, 10 sessions at the Intermediate Conversation level may not be sufficient to reach an Advanced Conversation level. Students should consider re-enrolling on the Intermediate Conversation level to further improve fluency and proficiency before considering a higher conversational level. If you need help deciding, please request an oral assessment with us (it’s free!) and we’ll give you our insight.

Please also note that our instructors tend not to review grammar rules in conversation classes, as the most important thing is to keep the conversation flowing! If you want to review specific grammar topics, it’s best to take one of our regular L1-5 classes and/or private lessons :)


Please note that, in order to register for this course, you should have scored at least 24 points on our Online Placement Test.

I have taken many classes with Berges over the years, but this was my first class with Rolando, and at this point I am convinced that all of the teachers at Berges are stellar. Rolando perfectly balanced the class to make sure that we were constantly learning new words and phrases and correcting our conjugations with good conversation flow and friendly atmosphere. I really enjoyed the class and look forward to more with Rolando!

It was great. I keep signing up and coming back. So that says everything, right?

Victor is a gem, always responsive and helpful.

Nicolas is quite a lot of fun, and we have had a terrific group of people. Because we're an advanced group, the discussion starts spontaneously and flows from there. It's especially wonderful when there is back-and-forth among the students. Whenever we ask a grammar question, Nico answers well. I also think that it would be good to include a grammar point in the conversation evenings based on what surfaces each time. Perhaps, Nico can check in with the next group to take "the pulse" about that idea.

Nico's Spanish is beautiful, but of course - it's Colombian ; ) His explanations are clear, and he speaks at a relatively normal pace to build our oral comprehension. Nico is knowledgeable about many subjects and when he isn't, he shows intellectual curiosity, another plus in an educator!

Nicolas facilitated a wonderful conversation group with three of us, who were all aligned in many views and interests. We talked and laughed and discussed new vocabulary and grammar, when we asked questions. It was an intimate highly conversant group, and Nicolas was joyful and interested in us. Five stars*****
