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.

I came to this class after several years not practicing Spanish and the pace and level were perfect to immerse me back into the language. I liked the teaching style and appreciated the time spent conversing... there was absolutely no judgement by the instructor or classmates. The class environment was perfect; very friendly and fun, while maintaining an educational atmosphere. Thanks so much!

Great personalized instruction due to small class sizes. Just enough homework for a working person. Wonderful staff!

Loved the class discussion, was fun rather than intimidating. Learned a ton over the course of a short time, without ever feeling overwhelmed. The book and the instructor were both great!

Materials are well laid out and, most importantly, get to the point. This is my third course at Berges and I think it is a first rate organization.

I greatly appreciated my first course at Berges Institute. This class was a review for me since I had taken 2 years of Spanish in college many moons ago. I am about to start level 4 and am impressed with how quickly this language has returned to me. There is one caveat though. I lost about 3 hours of sleep last night because I had so many Spanish phrases running through my head. I come home so pumped after my class that it is difficult to fall asleep.

Level 3 Spanish covers imperfect and simple future as well as expanding on vocabulary. It is a logical next step building on material learnt in Level 2. The pace is good and the homework exercises appropriate.

I have taken other Spanish courses in the past (this was my first at Berges), but I feel this course helped me improve and clarified some things that I really hadn't understood well in the past. I think the way the course is structured was beneficial and found it very helpful that much of the homework involved translating from English to Spanish, which we later went over in class. This not only gave us the opportunity to check our work, but afforded us the opportunity to ask questions and get clarification on how to actually express ideas correctly in Spanish. I found that this laid a good groundwork for going on to the next step of expressing ideas verbally.

The course was very comprehensive. I learned a lot!
