Advanced Grammar Workshops with
Pedro García - TALLERES

We are still in the planning phase right now but we are looking at putting together a 1x per month workshop for intermediate and advanced students taught by Pedro García that will go in depth on grammar topics that challenge most students.

For example, one of the workshops will be covering the subjunctive tense. 

1. The abstract thought and the subjunctive.
2. This concept applied to Spanish. What does a native Spanish speaker think while using it? 
3. The present subjunctive.
4. The imperfect subjunctive
5. The present perfect subjunctive
6. The past perfect subjunctive
Fun and interactive explanations while introducing the subjunctive as accurately as possible. Exercises, games and conversations. All in Spanish.
