Intermediate Conversation

58 reviews

Intermediate Conversation is an immersion course for the intermediate student who is comfortable speaking solely in Spanish but doesn’t feel ready for Advanced Conversation yet.

You will read, write, listen and speak in Spanish for ten weeks as you slowly but surely improve your vocabulary and your confidence. You will also have to prepare and give two presentations (in Spanish, of course!).

Please note that, because we all learn at a different pace, 10 sessions at the Basic Conversation level may not be sufficient to reach an Intermediate Conversation level. Students should consider re-enrolling on the Basic 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 22 points on our Online Placement Test.

I love the idea of the conversation class and when done well they are great. And I love having to read articles in Spanish and think about what I might say, in advance of the class. But I think that all instructors should have to follow some guidelines about how they teach, including using at least some of the homework assignments. The two intermediate conversation classes I took were completely different.

One of the best things about the conversation courses is that I can take them more than once. The content is dynamic and ever-changing, which keeps them fresh. I learned a ton and also enjoyed the course.

Excellent course for the somewhat casual learner wanting to give more time to study than daily life permits. Alejandro addresses each student where they are and makes progress in Spanish fun.

I look forward to this class every week! Topics are interesting and it’s a comfortable environment to really practice Spanish.

I really enjoyed this class and being able to have conversations in Spanish with other students who are learning with me helps. I love that the class size is small so that everyone can participate and really get to know one another. One hour and a half goes by really fast when the conversation is engaging

The course is a great way to both practice and to advance one's Spanish. The small class size works well and doing it 100% online was convenient and effective.

It was great! I also enjoyed the small class size. Dennis knew when to talk slowly and made it easy for the conversation to flow.

I enjoyed the looser structure and conversation about current events.
