Level 3: The Imperfect Tense

193 reviews

If you are comfortable with telling simple stories from the past, for example, saying what you did last week in Spanish, you should register for Level 3.

In this level, you will work on the pretérito imperfecto tense, its uses, and its differences from the pretérito perfecto. You will learn how to use both past tenses combined. You will also start working on direct object pronouns and the future tense (using verb ir), and of course, you will expand your vocabulary.


Please note that, in order to register for this course, you should have scored at least 11 points on our Online Placement Test.

Great course! Nicholas is a terrific teacher. His emphasis on speaking and actually using the concepts we're learning is super helpful. I am waiting to take Level 4 until I can take it with him!

Well organized, thorough and motivating.

The level 3 course is 10 classes, 90 minutes each class, total of 15 hours. It’s almost entirely in Spanish but some English for clarification when needed. Nicholas was a delight. He’s an excellent teacher and clearly loves teaching! The class varied in size but was usually 4 students so lots of personal attention. I liked the non scripted candid conversations where we each try to speak with some fluency at the beginning of each class (despite asking Nicolas for words in Spanish to help us!) My only complaint is that I would like more examples/homework to practice each new item we learned more thoroughly. There is a great and easy book Berges has which is used as the core guide of the program but I would love an online login to get more practice even. Berges doesn’t currently offer this. I have complemented my studies with Duolingo and other Spanish language radio etc. I’m looking forward to Level 4 with Nicolas again (of course!) i highly recommend this Spanish language institute.

It was a great course. Maria explained all the grammar thoroughly and added many vocabulary words. She gave us time to conversate on a variety of topics.

The Berges institute is an awesome institute, well organized, flexible, and friendly. The same goes for the class. Very nice, professional instructor who keeps the class fun and engaging at all times. I learnt so much in this class and look forward to the next. Keep up the good work!
