Level 5 6:30 pm (AEST) Iliana (8 weeks)

Each of these courses goes for 8 weeks (1 class per week) and is at the same time each week as the first class.

This is what is covered in this level:

“It is by no means an irrational fancy that, in a future existence, we shall look upon what we think to be our present existence as a dream.”

―  Edgar Allan Poe

Oh! The world of ideas and dreams!

Vamos Plato and Poe – let’s talk about them….

In Spanish…

This course introduces you to a deeper form of communication.  At this level, we want you to go a little bit further.

Because you’re a friend, a brother, a sister, a son or a daughter, we will make sure you are able to express yourself in those roles that life challenges us with every day.  We want you to make friends and give advice and suggestions to them (that’s what a good friend does).

For the first time at this level, you will step into the world of ideas, suppositions, and conjectures, preparing yourself to leave the indicative (this will happen in level 6, yeah!).

The Indicative is simply one of the two forms Spanish verbs come in. You have been studying this form since you started learning Spanish. This form allows you to talk about real situations or statements, whether those are placed in past, present, or future tenses.

Let’s have a look at the last tenses from this indicative form spiced up with the conditional, the future and some compound tenses like the tense everybody loves to name: El Pluscuamperfecto!
