Level 5: Subjunctive, Conditional and Imperative

131 reviews

If you are confident speaking in the past, present and future tenses and have a wide vocabulary, you should take Level 5.

In this level, you will work hard on the subjunctive mood, the conditional structure, and the commands. You will learn how to approach complex sentences and you will be reading and writing at a relatively high complexity level.

I have now taken levels III through V with Rolando and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. He is able to make class enjoyable and also effectively communicate the lessons. Level V had a lot of concepts that I found to be complex / confusing but over the course of ten weeks he was able to make it all very digestible. I look forward to taking more courses at Berges.

I took this class with Rolando, who is arguably one of the best instructors at Berges. He did a great job with teaching the material and engaging everyone in conversation. My issue with this class is that it's too much information for one course. I would prefer to take this class in two parts and go deeper and have more of a chance to practice the 3 tenses that are covered. I have taken every level at Berges and every class has been well paced with the exception of Level 5. Many of my classmates felt the same. Hopefully, Berges will listen to the feedback and make changes in the future. As it is, I will probably retake Level 5 after a few conversation courses.

I’ve taken two courses with Rolando, Level 3 and Level 5. There’s a lot of material in Level 5, but Rolando made the grammar very clear. And he encouraged us to talk a lot in the class, to practice speaking Spanish. He’s a great teacher.

This course is even better than I expected, the staff is very helpful and friendly and classes are just incredible! There is a lot of practice, we have fun and talk a lot but also enough time is dedicated to grammar, homework check and reading. And books are very well structured so that all types of exercises are used in every chapter.

Rolando was awesome! I loved level 5 but I highly recommend to devide level 5 into 2 different levels ( level5 and level 6). It is too much grammar information to process and to learn for one level .

Me gustó el curso mucho. El profesor fue interesante y explicó bien los temas. Las clases eran pequeñas y atractivas. Había muchos temas que no sabía. Estaba satisfecho con los crecimientos y resultados. Necesito practicar mucho mas para ser fluido. Seguiré tomando los cursos en Berges. Muchas gracias por todo.

I think the Graf Method is really very logical. It's almost like developmental milestones, things progress in a logical manner. Almost the same as crawling before walking. I have now completed Levels 2 - 5 and I am looking forward to doing Basic Conversation. I would definitely recommend this School to anyone who wants to improve or learn Spanish from scratch.

Level 5 covers the subjunctive, conditional, imperative, and passive voice. I feel like there is more information in this level than the other levels. I wish it were divided into two courses. The conditional, subjunctive, and imperative forms add in seven forms of the verb. Compare this to the previous courses levels 1-4, we learned seven verb forms total in those four classes. It's a lot of information to absorb. The great thing is that there is a conversation class after level 5 which I'm looking forward to taking. I did miss a couple of classes due to my work schedule and a vacation week, so it's possible I have missed more than I thought, despite taking one private class to make up the lesson. There was also a lot more homework in this class, some of which I did not have time to complete. However, after taking this class, I am pleased to say that I feel that I can be fluent with more effort.
