Intermediate Spanish II

Tuesdays, March 31-June 2, 2020 (no class April 7) | 3:00-5:00 pm (9 weeks)
Lawrence Family JCC

This class is a natural progression from the Intermediate Spanish I course. It will systematically introduce further verb tenses, more vocabulary and focus more on structures that can be expanded to be used in a variety of situations such as talking about obligations, obtaining information through interrogatives, telling others about oneself and understanding short stories. This course will provide students with the confidence to establish very good pronunciation of the Spanish language. This class is designed for students who have some understanding of Spanish and a mastery of themes taught through the Pre-Intermediate course.

RSVP by March 17, 2020 to the Senior Dept. 858.362.1141 or sign up online

Price: $160 | JCC Members: $130 (additional fees for materials may apply)
