About The Event

Recommended textbook: Easy Spanish Step-by-Step by Barbara Bregstein, available on Amazon ($13.90).
This is an Intermediate/Advanced Spanish course. We will have lots of review in chapter 8 and begin on chapter 9. Prior knowledge of verb conjugation (present tense), including stem-changers and irregular and plain old weird verbs is helpful.  You should be comfortable with word order variations, such as: me gustan las fiestas.  
Can you express:
“I want to go home early tomorrow”? (quiero ir a casa temprano mañana)    (chapter 6)  * stem-changing verbs
“I’m going to come back soon”? (voy a regresar pronto or voy a volver pronto)  (chapter 7)  * false future with “ir  + a “ 
“I have to go now but am going to come back”? (tengo que ir ahora pero voy a regresar) (chapter 7)  *expressions with tener
She is taller than I”. (Chapter 8) * comparisons
Students should understand how verbs conjugate in Spanish present tense, and have some basic vocabulary proficiency.
