This level introduces new grammar that gets us closer to speaking conversational spanish

The course is excellent. What was most valuable was the conversations that we had during class, fostered by a wonderful teacher who was patient and corrected gently when we may have misspoke.

This is my second course with Berges. I came back to Berges for two reasons: the pedagogy and the teachers themselves. The pedagogy: There is a strong emphasis here on understanding and deconstructing grammar, which is what I find most useful in having an actual teacher (versus a book or an app). At the same time, there is also a focus on conversation, with opportunities for students to talk about what they did over the weekend, current events, etc. all en español, which is what is most useful about learning with other people (versus a book, an app, or even private lessons). The teachers: Even though I've only taken classes with two different teachers, I've also had other teachers as subs and when taking makeup classes. So I've been exposed to five different teachers from Berges now, and they were all very approachable and seem to genuinely enjoy teaching.

The curriculum works to teach Spanish language skill and to answer questions so that it makes sense.

The course is well taught. Each class builds nicely on the last class. And we have conversation in class that helps with conversation skills.

needs more balance; too much grim on direct and indirect object. also, introducing the future perfect without the subjunctive was confusing.

I found the course very interesting as well as EXTREMELY well taught. I will most definitely take another course(s) at the Berges Institute.
