Studied Spanish long ago but forgot most of it? Join this fast-paced beginners' class for those with previous yet rusty experience. We'll converse in basic present tense and quickly move on to past and future. 

There will be some reading and writing in this class. However, this is a conversation class, so our main focus will be on speaking, listening and culture. We'll cover most of the same topics as Level 1, but we'll do it more rapidly. Course content varies depending on the instructor and students. Generally, the following topics are covered in this level: PRONUNCIATION: the alphabet; words and how accent marks affect pronunciation and stress. SYNTAX (how sentences are formed): articles (definite and indefinite); pronouns (formal vs. informal); possessive pronouns; plurals, noun/adjective agreement; forming negatives; gender; interrogatives (questions words); construction of negatives. VERBS: most common Verbs (ser, estar, ir, venir, tener, gustar, ir a+ infinitiver); formation of regular verbs; some irregular verbs, if there is time. VOCABULARY: greetings and farewells; days, months, and telling time; numbers up to 1,000; weather; colors; daily life
