This class is a bridge to the A2 level, providing you with an opportunity to reinforce the skills you have learned in previous classes. Reading and conversation will focus on presenting more detailed descriptions, expressing appreciation, explaining situations, and giving advice and recommendations. Study of prepositions, pronouns, articles, and the imperfect (imparfait) verb tense will help you perfect and broaden your communication. At this point in your learning, you’ll possess the vocabulary and grammar to relate memories, compare past situations to current circumstances, and write a formal letter. As you progress in your learning, you will read and talk in more detail about your experiences and activities. You’ll study the verb tenses for recent past, continuous present and simple future, and the grammatical structures to describe places and people and communicate news.
