Level 2 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.

¡Felicidades! ¡Enhorabuena! Congratulations! 

By this point, you should have a solid idea of the language’s foundation and be ready to explore it in more depth.

If we have had the pleasure of having you in level 1, or if you have travelled and learnt some vocabulary but still can’t put all those different bits and pieces into a coherent sentence, then now’s the time to put it all together!

You have studied so hard and triumphed over the battle of verb conjugations; you have plenty of vocabulary, and your pronunciation of ‘r’ is getting better every day, so why is it so hard to put these things into a phrase that works?

Don’t panic or get disappointed in your studies so far, for this is in fact a good sign: you are forcing yourself to think in Spanish a little bit more each time and you are facing more complex structures in a very natural way.

Not enough consolation? Do you want to speak better?

Then, take your needle and thread, as this level will give you the tricks to string together that elusive speech.

As we all know, “There is an exception to every rule” (Annoying but true). In level 2, you may find many irregularities. Don’t let them intimidate you. You have to realise that you are no longer a beginner, which, besides sounding so good when you say it, also means that you are most likely experiencing moments of frustration when trying to speak.

But you are just a step away from producing a perfect sentence without angst!

It doesn’t mean that you are not learning but the opposite!

¡Vamos! ¡Tú puedes!
