Spanish Level 2 – Beginners 2

This course builds on what you’ve learned on level 1.  Here you will practice using the present tense, but we will add on past and future tense. This level focuses on practice and it’s designed to increase understanding and fluency.

We also do a bit of grammar by looking at commonly used verbs that describe the things you do and learn how to form simple sentences. 

We’ll practice more conversation and increase comprehension through  videos and games.
