Recommended textbook: Easy Spanish Step-by-Step by Barbara Bregstein, available on Amazon ($12.60).
This is an Intermediate Spanish course. We will start with lots of review in chapter 6 and march onward. 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)
“I’m going to come back soon”? (voy a regresar pronto or voy a volver pronto)
“I have to go now but am going to come back”? (tengo que ir ahora pero voy a regresar)
NO?Don’t worry about it. We’ll start where ever you are!
Still, students should understand how verbs conjugate in Spanish and have some basic vocabulary skills.
