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.

Super enjoyable and motivating at the same time --which is a perfect combination. Great class, and a plus is that location is easy to get to. My interest in learning more Spanish has grown a lot since this class and I immediately signed up for the next class. Highly recommended!

Conversations were interesting and enjoyable. I do wish we reviewed the homework in class, as I think it would have helped me motivate to do more of the readings. I struggled a bit with the freedom of the conversation class (without a concrete lesson to focus on) after the structure of the grammar classes. Maybe just my issue.

Love this class, very fun and informative, instructor was engaging and focused on teaching us on every day conversation skills

The course helped me tremendously improve my conversational skills in Spanish. The instructor worked to make the course relevant to the interest and needs of the students, so that every hour was useful and informative. The environment was relaxed, encouraging learning from the teacher as well as peer learning. I am a teacher: as a result of this course I was able to teach my first science lesson in Spanish!

Great balance of structured conversations based on the book/assignments and letting conversation flow naturally. Liked that students were corrected after they'd finished speaking unless our errors changed the meaning of what we were saying. Definitely helped to improve my Spanish and I'm looking forward to more classes at Berges!

the course was excellent. Nicolas the instructor is always fantastic. We found ourselves lacking for time the weeks presentations were due. The only other thing is that the class was a bit mate for my brain to work optimally.... Unfortunately there is a huge difference in understandability between teachers that you kind of have a incentive to stay with the same one.
