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.

Loved this course! Maria is great and kept us all very engaged. I wish we could meet more than once a week! Will definitely be signing up for another (now my 3rd course!) with the Berges Institute.

Even though the course took place over video chat, everyone was engaged and participated in the conversation.

just finished intermediate conversation with Andres. This is my sixth class with Berges starting with in-person level 1 in New York City continuing to level 5 and then conversation. During that time, in-person eventually became online. This last class which was my first conversation class was very engaging and involved impromptu conversation led by Andres with the other students and discussions of recent news items that were given to us as homework. The final class involved presenting an event that happened in the Spanish-speaking world. I appreciated Andres for his patience, kindness, intellectual curiosity and energy and would heartily recommend him as a teacher.

The course was stimulating and encouraged conversation. Some of the topics recommended as reading homework were a bit strange but regardless they stimulated reading and writing in Spanish

A wonderful opportunity to practice Spanish conversation with a wonderful instructor and small group of other students.

The course moved online because of COVID and Maria made the transition easy and smooth. I enjoyed the conversation class. We had discussions about current events and our daily activities. I want to practice speaking and understanding others and this class helped me with that. Thank you Maria.

Berges' classes, the teachers and the administrative staff deserve much more than 5 stars. Everyone is outstanding, and it is pleasure to study here. Even during quarantine, the conversation courses are fabulous because they are a perfect venue for practicing skills, while stimulating your intellect. The added benefit is the chance to maintain social connections with fun and interesting people of all walks of life. I recommend this school to everyone who asks me about studying Spanish. It has been worth every penny. There has been a huge advancement in my skills. Thank you Berges staff! Many thanks for a fantastic class!
