Intermediate Conversation

52 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.

This was my first class at Berges. I have taken other conversation classes at other schools and this has been my favorite. I liked the method of choosing an article (in advance) to prepare for class.

This class was conducted solely in Spanish - and it was really fun and interesting to hear the stories and comments of a random group of New Yorkers. However, with about eight students in the room, you personally will not be speaking that much in each 90-minute class. While this class will help you along, to substantially improve your Spanish you will have to put in time studying and speaking on your own.

Interesting topics to prepare and discuss in class helped facilitate conversation.

The course has great potential. However ever class followed the exact same format. It became boring and predictable. A game was used once to introduce vocabulary and to break the monotony. I have been in other courses where short films or a short poem or reading was used to good effect. One student was allowed to dominate most discussions. She should have been limited in a nice way. These are not criticisms of Ms. Guedes. She is personable and willing, however she needs more training. I did not come back for the two last meetings. I am a very busy person and I felt that my time was not well spent.

Loved it. Melissa was a great instructor. She was so friendly and patient. I loved going in and chatting in Spanish for 90 minutes a week.

Teacher was great, he led the convos in a very interactive manner. Class was news/discussions based so there is always something to talk about. Wish it was a little more structured so I knew if I was improving or not. Some formal exercises would've been helpful.

I enjoyed this class because we were able to talk about a variety of subjects and bring up topics we found interesting or parts of speech we were struggling with. The teacher was friendly and interesting. However, overall, I don't feel like I gained very much new knowledge or practice of the language. Much of the conversation would end up being between a student and the teacher. She would ask a question and someone would respond, then we'd move on to the next question. Student grammar was hardly corrected or guided, even when it was desperately needed.
