Advanced Conversation

44 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 wasn't sure how I would like taking an online course, but Nicolas was great at making me feel at ease from Day 1. I enjoyed chatting with the other students in the class, and the sense of community we developed over video calls was astonishing.

We were a group of all women, and Nicolas was wonderfully comfortable in leading discussions among us. His Spanish is beautiful, with clarity and expressiveness, so he is easy to comprehend. Beyond the topics of discussion, we often ventured into other areas of interest like movies, books, and music - in Spanish, of course! Advanced Conversation is a good platform for building confidence, proficiency and vocabulary. Nicolas makes it fun!

I really enjoyed the format of the conversation course. Reading about and discussing current events was a great way to learn new words and practice discussing opinions and hypothetical situations.

The course was excellent! I have been taking conversation classes at Berges for several years - the quality of the content and teachers is what keeps me coming back. I love Rolando's teaching style - he is very engaging and asks great questions that keep the conversation flowing and encourage students to think outside of the box and use new vocabulary.

Great course as usual. Real study of Spanish language + fun place to socialize.

A well run class in which everyone spoke pretty equally. The instructor was careful to assure that we all spoke.

The conversation class with Rolando was very helpful. I feel more confident in expressing myself in Spanish. The teacher's attitude encouraged us to speak freely on many topics and his corrections were gentle and helpful. The students are serious about learning but we still had fun.

Nicolas had us chatting away in Spanish as if it were easy. His input was subtle enough to make us aware, but not distracted by, our errors. That gave us freedom to express ourselves without the inhibitions language student usually suffer from.
