The interactive lessons will focus on various aspects of grammar, such as:
- Noun, article, and adjective agreement
- Subject and verb agreement
- Preterite and imperfect forms
- Past progressive and past perfect tenses
- Subjunctive forms
- Direct and indirect object pronouns
You will review the Spanish past tenses and gain a deeper understanding of their differences. You will review conjunctions, the subjunctive mood, and learn to add interest and depth to your writing. Plus, you’ll learn how to proofread your own work, use a dictionary to your advantage, improve your descriptions, and vary sentence structure when writing. You’ll apply your learning with short writing assignments, and quizzes during the course will help you gauge what you’re learning.
The last lesson will include a 500-700 word personal narrative, on which you’ll get constructive feedback from a Spanish language expert.
At the end of this course, you will be a more effective writer. You will also be better equipped to incorporate complex sentence structures and richer vocabulary into your conversations.
Appropriate for heritage speakers or intermediate to advanced Spanish language learners. From time of registration, students have 6 months to complete the course.
