If you are intermediate, you are able to understand and take part in most interactions with Spanish speakers on familiar topics. You’re able to switch between different tenses in your speaking, and have covered a good amount of Spanish grammar.
Of course, you still make mistakes, and probably feel a little frustrated with your level (you may have been at this same level for some time now!). Your fluency is developing, but you have your areas of comfort and familiarity, and if you stray outside these find it tough.
If you’re looking to develop both fluency and accuracy in your speaking across a broader range of topics, and “fill in” a few of the more elementary areas you never got around to learning, intermediate is the level for you!

- Master the past tenses
- Convince and persuade
- Give instructions
- Present subjunctive
- Express desires
- Talk about probability in the present, future, and past

Talk about past habits, contrasting the preterite with the imperfect. Go deeper with the tricky (yet crucial) verbs ser and estar. Meet the subjunctive in present tense.
- Past habits and events
- Ser vs estar (advanced)
- Indicative vs subjunctive (present tense)
- Causal conjugations
- Imperfect vs preterite
Go deeper on the subjunctive, and learn how to contrast this with the indicative. Learn about the past subjunctive, and we’ll start doing more debates about a wide variety of topics
- Positive and negative imperatives
- Argument and debate
- Past subjunctive
- Indicative vs subjunctive (continued)
- Stereotypes and “interculturality”
It can be hard to know what level of Spanish we are, so we strongly advise all students to book a consultation session either before or after booking a course. It’s not obligatory, but (did we mention!?) is advised!
No! Our courses are structured so that there is a progression between them, but if you have already studied some of the fundamentals you will be able to slot into any of the courses.
We’ll send over details of all the classes, so you can add them to your calendar. We’ll add you to our Google Classroom, and send a few other materials to make sure you’re ready for the classes.
Yes. Teachers will set homework to be completed between classes, and the first few minutes of each class will be dedicated to review.
You’ll have access to all class materials (and homework) in the Google classroom, so you can see exactly what you’ve missed and what you need to do to catch up. We don’t record any of the lessons.
Pro members get 20% off all academy courses (make sure you log in, and you’ll see a coupon code to use at the top of the page).
If you are booking more than one course, or for more than one person, get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can put together flexible packages based on your needs.
We’ve found that having students placed in the right levels is the most important factor for a successful class environment.
That’s why, in addition to offering the free consultation, we run all of our classes with spare capacity, so that we can move students between classes as needed.
If you find your class too easy or too difficult let us know and we’ll offer alternatives.
Your teacher may also make a recommendation for a different group after your first class.
No. We use our own materials, so you do not have to buy anything separately.
