Level 5 Spanish Course
“It is by no means an irrational fancy that, in a future existence, we shall look upon what we think to be our present existence, as a dream.”
― Edgar Allan Poe
Oh! the world of ideas and dreams!
Vamos Plato and Poe - let’s talk about them….
This course introduces you to a deeper form of communication. In this level, we want you to go a little bit further.
Because you’re a friend, a brother, a sister, a son or a daughter, we will make sure you are able to express yourself in those roles that life challenges us with every day. We want you to make friends and give advice and suggestions to them (that’s what a good friend does).
Here in this level for the first time you will step into the world of ideas, suppositions, conjetures, preparing ourselves to leave the indicative (this will happen in level 6, yeah!)
The Indicative is simply one of the two forms Spanish verbs come in. This is the one you have been studying since you started learning Spanish. This form allows you to talk about real situations or statements, whether those being placed in past, present or future tenses.
Let’s have a look at the last tenses from this indicative form spiced up with the conditional, the future and some compound tenses like the tense everybody loves to name: el pluscumperfecto!
