Upper intermediate Classes
If you are upper-intermediate, you can fully function in Spanish and could describe yourself as a “confident” speaker. You’re able to have conversations with native Spanish speakers, and it’s not too much of a strain for either of you.
However, you still lack nuance in your communication, and it still takes time for you to search for the right expression. You feel more fluent in some areas than others, and while you generally understand native Spanish, you still struggle with longer-form, more complex Spanish.
If you’re looking to develop your confidence and fluency further, and are ready to grow your fluency beyond your base of comfort, upper-intermediate is the level for you!
Not sure if this is your level? Book a free 15 minute consultancy below, and we’ll help you decide if this is for you:
Is this class for me?
We highly recommend booking a free 15 minute consultation with us, and we will help to figure out the right class for you:
Class times and booking links. All courses are 10 weeks, with 1 hour class per week:
There are three courses offered. All are 10 weeks, 1 hour class per week.
In our upper-intermediate classes, the teacher takes a role of facilitator, moderator, and guide. Classes are focused on enabling students to speak, and go beyond their typical topic comfort zones.
Classes will include grammar and vocabulary as necessary, but growth will come from broad reading and preparation for classes.
“I had been feeling stuck with my Spanish skills – while very good, I knew that what I really needed was the chance to practice speaking and getting feedback. What I love most about the Spanish Obsessed classes is how fun, unique, and conversation-based they are; though we learn grammar, it’s a conversation class, and the grammar comes secondary. We talk about so many fascinating topics – things that engage me to be curious, interested, and excited to talk. I have been able to grow both my ability and my confidence in speaking!”
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.
